The power to manipulate the vectors of matter and its related energy. Sub-power of Physics Manipulation. Variation of Velocity Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Direction Manipulation
  • Geometric Vector Alteration
  • Redirection Manipulation
  • Refraction Manipulation
  • Regokinesis
  • Spatial Vector Transformation

Capabilities

The user can change the magnitude and the direction (vector) of an object to achieve the desired result.

Vectors can be divided into two types: position (location) and momentum (velocity). The position of an object is its distance and direction in relation to something else, such as another object, and the momentum of an object is the speed and direction of its motion. Manipulating momentum allows for the alteration of both speed and direction, whilst manipulating position allows for the alteration of an object's location in space. Even if the magnitude of an object's vector was zero, it would still count as a vector as it still has a magnitude and a direction.

All forms of matter can be described using vectors, and by exploiting this fact, a user of this power can theoretically create an "absolute defense" that prevents any harmful vectors from bypassing its boundary (possibly doing so by reversing the direction of kinetic vectors or displacing position vectors as to send the associated object to alternate regions in space).

Limitations

  • May have limited range.
  • May only be able to affect vectors related to physical objects.
  • If the user requires to perform calculations to use this ability, Enhanced Intelligence may be needed.
    • If the user lacks Enhanced Endurance, their performance of calculations to use this ability, may cause them to suffer from exhaustion and other negative effects.
  • May only be able to manipulate a certain number of vectors at a time; distraction may put user at risk.
  • Vulnerable to any harmful effect that is unrelated to vectors.
  • If the ability is used to form an automatic reflection field, the opponent can take advantage of it by reversing their attack at the exact moment of contact with the field's area of effect, which tricks it into drawing the attack towards the user and thus allowing it to harm them.
  • If user does not possess Enhanced Lung Capacity or Oxygen Independence, they will become vulnerable to Deoxygenation.
