    I’m sure she once admited to not actually having clautrophoebea. Then again, Marigold was in her Pointyhead costume at the time so it could have just been a cunning ruse in character.

    Also a story within a story can stand to be poorly planned out.

    ’Tain’t easy coming up with a superhero with unthought-of superpowers.

    I wanted to be a hero whose super power was being able to read any language and translate it. That way I could wear whatever I wanted to and not bother with the spandex look; just regular street clothes.

    Look on it as a starting point. May I suggest ornate paper folding might be a super step up the powers ladder? Maybe with a few glittery stickers?

    She could be good at breaking open walls.

    Maybe her power/handicap is that she can use any power she wants, but only indoors. In open spaces, she’s powerless.

    Phoebe, maybe where you come from super-empathy isn’t a super power, but it sure is around these parts!

    My vote: Claustropheobea’s power is a variant of spatial warping. She can make enclosed spaces larger then they really are (like a TARDIS), or smaller than they really are (like a reverse TARDIS). She can apply this affect to any enclosed space, such as buildings, rooms, fanny packs, barrels, trucks, glove compartments, dresser drawers, etc.

    Openings in an “enclosed space” (such as doors, windows, hatches, etc.) do not prevent her power from working but might reduce its effectiveness. Also, relative proportions are really wonky when crossing the threshold from normal space into space she’s affecting. It messes with the mass of objects as well.

    She can use her ability to counteract her own claustrophobia (by making rooms bigger) or to afflict other people with claustrophobia (by making the walls close in on them). She can also use it to carry around lots of equipment (by expanding the space inside of a backpack or satchel or pocket or even her sleeves). She can store criminals or allies inside of a sack. She can use it to reach anything in a room by shrinking the room until everything is only a few feet away, or prevent other people from reaching things in a room by expanding it until everything is very far away. She can use it to comfortably fit through tight spaces or hide inside of a grocery bag.

    If her storyline takes a turn for the darker and edgier, she can fit hundreds of bullets into a single magazine or crush people to death in shrinking rooms.

    she can make her enemies feel trapped in small rooms, and it’s all just in their minds.
