Shapeshifting is the ability to change appearance and/or body structure. Different forms include:

  • Metamorphosis (limited to human forms, unable to change mass)
  • Animorphosis (take on animal forms. May be able to take on the abilities of the altered form)
  • Polymorphosis (assume any form, size, mass and appearance at will)
  • Therianthrope (or "were-" would transform from a human to an animal, e.g. a "werewolf")
  • Liquification (ability to turn partially or completely into a liquid)
  • Sublimation (transformation into a gaseous, mist, or fog-like form)

Elasticity (stretching body like Mr. Fantastic) may be considered a form of shapeshifting. So changing the substance of a body into an inorganic substance (changing to a metal form like Colossus) could be as well.
