Capabilities

User can create, shape and manipulate metal, a solid material (an element, compound, or alloy) that is typically hard, shiny, and features good electrical and thermal conductivity. Metals are generally malleable —they can be hammered or pressed permanently out of shape without breaking or cracking— as well as fusible (able to be fused or melted) and ductile (able to be drawn out into a thin wire).

Limitations

  • May be unable to create metal, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
  • Distance, mass, precision, etc. depend upon of the knowledge, skill, and strength of the user.
  • May be limited to certain metals.
  • Metal is affected by everything that normal metals would be, although the user is perfectly able to use their power to return the metal in its original shape and/or controlling it even under these forces:
  • Extremely vulnerable to Electricity and Magnetism Manipulation, though some metals (such as gold) are not magnetic.
  • User may be limited to manipulating the metal which makes up their bodies.
