"You're a singular multidimensional messiah. You're going to rewrite the rules of magic and all the implications of that decision are going to echo forward and backwards across all realities. It's no biggie."
― Loki describing Wiccan's future self (Young Avengers)

The ability to transcend the rules of magic. Combination of Magic and Causality Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Magical Causality
  • Meta Magic


Users are practitioners of the Magical Powers who possess the uncanny ability to transcend the very rules under which they operate. They may be the exception to the rules, or simply the one making them. This allows them to perform many super-supernatural feats by altering or ignoring the conditions and limitations of magical systems.




  • The power only applies to magic itself, so users may still need to rely on spells.
