The power to enter or leave a state where one has super powers, while their normal identity normally does not.
- Civilian Form (if their super-self is the true form)
- Empowered Form
User can enter or leave a state where one has super powers, while their normal identity normally does not
The user may be normal human or normal for their species until they activate this power. They may gain a new costume or may have their body completely change into a new form. Unlike a secret identity, the user loses their powers while outside of this form, and unlike a Super Form, the user is not increasing their power, but gaining it. Some users may have powers outside of their Powered Form that's different from their true powers.
- Keep their powers hidden in normal form, but unlock them once transformed.
- May be able to use a partial amount of their power.
- May be able to transform at will at a higher level.
- May need a transformation device to transform.
- May need a phrase to transform.
- May have a time-limit or energy limit or both, meaning the transformation may undo itself if out of energy/time.
- Risks of being a target while in powerless form.
