The power to restore one's telomeres to their optimal lengths. Sub-power of DNA Manipulation and Regenerative Healing Factor. Opposite to Telomere Reduction.

Also Called

  • Telomere Extension/Lengthening/Regrowth/Rejuvenation

Capabilities

The user can regenerate the length of their telomeres. Telomeres are a region of repetitive nucleotide sequences at each end of a chromatid, protecting the DNA fragments; they grow shorter as cell division occurs, an indication of the person getting older. By regenerating the lengths of telomeres, one can extend their own lifespan indefinitely.

Applications

Associations

Limitations

  • User cannot increase the rate of regeneration of cells, so any injuries will not heal any faster than normal.
    • Cannot heal severe loss of cell tissues (i.e. loss of limb) or necrosis.
  • May also preserve damaged/cancerous cells.
  • User is still vulnerable to other causes of aging (e.g. oxidative damage of the mitochondria), as well as Age Manipulation.
  • Biological Manipulation can negate this power.
