Poor Image: Superpower Silly Putty get usage counts

Piffy
While the image is a great demonstration of the Trope Codifier, my first impression of the trope from the title and the image was that it was about when your super power is being all stretchy and squooshy like silly putty. The fact that you can briefly copy things off newsprint with silly putty didn't occur to me until later. Could we maybe get a pic in here that demonstrates a non-stertchy-squooshy power?

The pic is weak, but it's a Keep Until Better Image Suggested for me.

serial tweaker, sorry
My main problem with the current is that there are multiple Jimmy Olsens existing simultaneously, whereas the trope is that one character goes through all kinds of transformations.

Here are four pretty good panels: [1]. We could use any two, but probably not three or four - I tried three vertically first, but it was way too tall. 2x2 doesn't work because at 175px each the panels are much too hard to read. I combined these two:

[up] Either that or ear + tusks would work for me.

zzz...
Either 5 or 7 is good for me.

I think I prefer 7 because the superpowers are very clearly visible in both images.
Do loafing!

A couple more votes for 7 and we can run with it.

7's good.

Caption could be either "Take two shots." (more or less keeping the current one), or something like "Oh, now I'm made of rubber. How nice."

[up][up] That caption suggestion works. The new pic's up, potholed, and tagged, and the caption's tweaked. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
