Adamantium

An artificially created alloy of iron that is the most impervious substance known on Earth, with the exception of the unknown Steel-Vibranium alloy of which Captain America's Shield is composed.
(See Also: Adamantium)

Adrenaline

(aka Epinephrine) is a hormone and a neurotransmitter. It is secreted by the adrenal medulla. When released into the bloodstream it increases heart rate and stroke volume, dilates the pupils, and constricts arterioles in the skin and gut while dilating arterioles in leg muscles. Often listed as being the source of abnormal feats of strength or agility, or the trigger of super-human powers.

Alien

(1.) A being who originates elsewhere than Earth. (2.) Of or having to do with a place other than Earth.

Alter ego

An alter ego (from Latin, "other I") is another self, a second personality or persona within a person. The term is commonly used in comic books, for the secret identity of a superheros and supervillains.

An alter ego is usually used by superheroes to conceal their identities in order to protect their friends and family from harm at the hands of their enemies, whereas supervillians usually have an alter ego to make sure they don't get arrested.

Alternate Earth

A world resembling Earth in physical characteristics, natural phenomena, life forms, and, to some extent, history, which exists in the equivalent space to Earth's in another dimension. An alternate Earth may either be a divergent Earth or a parallel Earth.

[top] [Edit Alternate Earth]

Alternate Future

One of the possible future realities deriving from the present reality through a specific sequence of events. One cannot tell which alternate future will become one's present reality until the point of divergence has been passed. At that point, one's reality diverges into more than one, and versions of one's self will exist in each resulting alternate future. Hence, one's divergent self will experience one of the alternate futures as his present reality, while another of his divergent selves will experience a different alternate future as his.

[top] [Edit Alternate Future]

Alternate World

A world in another dimension which exists in the equivalent space to a world in this dimension. Some alternate worlds which are not alternate Earths may exist in the equivalent space to Earth's in other dimensions.

American

A person who was born in America.

Amphibious

Android

An artificial being designed to resemble a human being in as many ways as possible, and whose physiology and life functions replicate and mimic those of human beings as closely as possible. An android has all the same organs, tissue, bone, flesh, and blood as a human being, except they are synthetic. Compare with clone, cyborg, robot, and synthozoid.

Animal

Animals are a major group of multicellular, eukaryotic organisms of the kingdom Animalia or Metazoa. Their body plan becomes fixed as they develop, usually early on in their development as embryos, although some undergo a process of metamorphosis later on in their life. Most animals are motile - they can move spontaneously and independently. Animals are heterotrophs - they are dependent on other organisms (e.g. plants) for sustenance.

Anti-hero

An anti-hero has widely come to mean a character who has some characteristics that are antithetical to those of the traditional hero. An anti-hero in today's comic books will perform acts generally deemed "heroic," but will do so with methods, manners, or intentions that may not be heroic.
(See Also: Superhero, Supervillain)
[top] [Edit Anti-hero]

Anti-Graviton

A theoretical particle carrying a force that repels gravity.

[top] [Edit Anti-Graviton]

Anti-Matter

Matter composed of particles that are the counterparts of the particles composing positive matter (the matter of which this universe is composed), but have opposite charges; e.g., anti-protons instead of protons, and positrons instead of electrons. Should positive matter come in contact with an equal amount of antimatter, both will be annihilated and converted to energy.

[top] [Edit Anti-Matter]

Anti-Matter Universe

A universe composed of anti-matter rather than matter (as in our universe) existing in another dimension. The only one known to date is the Negative Zone.

[top] [Edit Anti-Matter Universe]

Anti-Mutant

Any type of being who holds prejudice towards mutants.

Artistic License

Simply put, artistic license means an artist is accorded leeway in his or her interpretation of something, and is not held strictly accountable for accuracy.

For example, the director of your local theater group might decide it's high time Shakespeare's Hamlet was staged with the entire cast walking on stilts. Obviously, this was not how they did things back at the old Globe, but the director has been seized with an artistic vision and must be indulged.

A poet is granted artistic license to rhyme something with the word "orange", even though "orange" has no rhyming word in English.

Music sampling is a relatively new discipline, in which bits and pieces of other works are taken and compiled into a new piece. The sampler has taken (sometimes wild) artistic license with other musicians' works. In many cases, the sampling community will rate new pieces, and one of the judging criteria is entitled "Artistic License".

Writers of fiction are allowed to take all sorts of liberties with facts, in the interest of crafting a good story. It should go without saying that "fiction" is the operative word here.

This means it either should be noted or not used at all since the 90% of the time the character does not exhibit that ability very often. For example the Hulk during the Secret Wars broke his leg, Spider-Man once defeated Firelord, the Black Panther put the Silver Surfer in a hammer lock. All of this was done with artistic license from the writer and are not considered typical of the characters.

Astral Body

The sheath or form that contains a living being's life essence, consciousness, spirit or soul. The astral body is a manifestation of the life essence composed of ectoplasm, an invisible, intangible substance whose source and properties remain unknown. While all living beings have astral bodies, certain adepts using psychic, psionic, or magical means, can separate their astral bodies from their physical bodies without harm. The astral body is also sometimes called astral form, astral self, and spirit form.

The astral form is the non-corporeal manifestation of beings that have the ability of astral projection. The majority of people capable of creating an astral form are psychics, and they usually appear on the Astral Plane. The astral form enables beings to exist within the mind, without a body and transcend through space and time as pure mental energy.

[top] [Edit Astral Body]

Astral Projection

Astral projection (or astral travel) is a paranormal interpretation of an out-of-body experience achieved either awake or via lucid dreaming or deep meditation. The concept of astral projection assumes the existence of another body, separate from the physical body and capable of traveling to non-physical planes of existence. Commonly such planes are called astral, etheric, or spiritual. Astral projection is often experienced as the spirit or astral body leaving the physical body to travel in the spirit world or astral plane. Often a form of telepathy or magic.

Atmokinesis
