We all love our superheroes dearly. The big ones, the small ones, the fiery ones, the smart ones, the ones who can fly and shoot lasers, yada, yada, yada, you get the drift. Throughout comic book history, there’s been a couple of amazing superheroes we’ve seen and adored. Most of these caped crusaders can do some really rad stuff, including the ability to alter their bodies to their benefit. The ability to shape – shift, grow into a huge green monster, become elastic, shoot fire from your palms, these are just a few of the perks of being a superhero. The best example of this would be Ant – Man, who can shrink to the size of an ant, quite literally, and get around. Here’s a couple of heroes through comic history who could alter their bodies:
How could we not mention the Hulk while we’re on the subject of heroes who could change size?! Bruce Banner transformed into the green beast when he lost his cool, and turned into a raging mass of muscle, brute force and mass destruction.
Watch your mouth, bub! James Howlett, or Logan, as he is popularly known, is famous for those razor sharp claws he can whip out at will. He can slice and dice really well, and is one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s finest heroes.
Another from the ranks of the X – Men, Beast is actually a timid young man, Hank McCoy. He’s witty and is accomplished in the arts and the sciences, but when he turns into the blue Beast, everything he has is enhanced. Right from his intellect, to his senses, and even to his size, the Beast changes completely when he transforms!
The Fantastic Four
Who doesn’t know these guys? The entire group can transform at will, and between them, there’s not much they can’t do. Reed Richards, or Mr. Fantastic can become elastic, yes, like a rubber band. Sue Storm can become invisible and project force fields, Johnny Storm can become a fire blasting humanoid who can fly around, and you don’t need to say too much about the Thing. He sort of speaks for himself.
She can change into any human, mimic their voice, she’s ageless and she can heal quickly. Need we say any more?
Ray Palmer, or the Atom, is known for being a science whiz. He holds a Ph. D in physics, but his real power is his power to shrink into a tiny speck, at the sub – atomic level, and even grow his body to varying degrees. Handy, right?
He can shift from being the size of an ant, to being the size of an elephant. Hank Pym is the Ant Man, and he’s got a bio – sting, and he has superhuman strength and agility. Enough said.
So there you have it, 7 heroes who can alter their bodies! Let us know in the comments if you have any other recommendations!
