The user can give superpowers to others. The "paste" power. Depending on how high or low the user is it can either be permanent or temporary. For an extra God-like kick, this may include Power Manipulation, especially if in the person's Third Evolutionary Form.
A magical entity, named Kali, indirectly grants powers through physical contact with a mirror.
Ragtag can give powers to others, but they are only temporary.
- Most powers are given by physical touching.
- Seldom can grant from a distance (close proximity)
- In some cases the powers granted are based on the subject's DNA structure, so the user can't choose powers to give.
- Low-level Users can only give powers for a limited times
- Some would have to obtain a copy of a power of one person in order to give the ability to another.
Quicksilver temporarily had the ability to bestow powers to others as well as reactivating the powers of depowered mutants after the events of the House of M, due to Terrigen crystals growing on his back. The Terrigen crystals, although they reactivated powers, were extremely unstable, to the point where some mutants were overpowered by their amplified abilites. A few, including the Blob (who had the power of a personal gravity field), killed themselves when their powers were reactivated.
Some powers can be granted by Powerful Objects.
