- Muscle Augmentation/Enhancement/Expansion
The user can increase the muscle mass (all or only certain muscles) of oneself and others, enhancing any physical abilities pertaining to muscle, such as strength, speed, stamina and durability.
- May be limited to increasing the muscles of others or only themselves.
- Overuse, use without proper training, or use without the proper anatomical adaptations may strain the user's body (even potentially causing damage).
- Power may rapidly drain the user's stamina and lead to fatal exhaustion, after prolonged use.
- May inadvertently restrict physical movement and mobility.
