Cosmic Power
Like magic, only science fiction-y and it comes from outer space somehow.

Up for grabs, by which I mean, by all means, DO launch without me.

How did we miss this one? Cosmic Power, or “The Power Cosmic”, is what cosmic entities use, but it's not limited to them exclusively.

Basically, it's functionally the same as functional magic, but feels science fiction-y rather than fantastic. It glows pretty colors and may look like atoms or Jack Kirby's famous dots or whatever. It may or may not be more powerful than magic.

Examples:

  • Silver Surfer's power cosmic.
  • Green Lanterns' power rings.

Etc etc.
