SUPERPOWER: ELECTROMAGNETIC MANIPULATION

For the main character of my latest short story, I have decided that his power set as a neohuman will revolve around electromagnetism, which is the ability to control both electricity and magnetic fields.  If I did not choose fire manipulation to be Patrick Donovan’s power set, I would have gone with this instead.  I find this power interesting because electricity is our most common source of power and our cities are overflowing with metals that are magnetic.  With that in mind, I thought it would be intriguing to see a character who could exploit both of those facts while battling evil.  I can already think of many ways this power set can be applied and I intend to incorporate them into the main character of my latest short story.  I am already excited to portray this power set in future writing.

  1. I would suggest, if you haven’t already, looking up “The Science of Magneto.” Electromagnetic manipulation is a quite literally god-like ability, as the e/m force is the most diverse of the fundamental forces of reality and would allow someone who had mastered it to pretty much control the entirety of the observable universe. A truly staggering power. You might want to consider if you’ve given this character *too much* power.
