Description: This Power allows a Character to turn an existing two-dimensional (such as a cartoon figure, billboard painting, or an image on a television screen) into an exact three-dimensional duplicate figure which will obey the Character's commands. There must be an existing two-dimensional image for Animate Image to function; a Character cannot simply summon a figure from their imagination.
The three-dimensional figure created by Animate Image will possess Physical, Mental and Mystical Attributes. The Character with Animate Image must divide the AP's of Power between these Attributes as desired to determine the image's statistics.
An animated image will possess all Powers and Skills of the figure it represents. For example, an animated bird would have Flight, an animated singer should have the Singer Subskill of Artist, and an animated Superman would have all of Superman's Powers and Skills. Each Animated Images Powers and Skills is at an AP level equal to the Link Attribute of the respective Power and Skill (just as if the Power/Skill were linked.)
An animated image will exits for a length of time (in AP's) equal to the Power user's AP's of Animate Image or until the Character voluntarily dispels the image.
Superman's nemesis, Mr. Mxyzptlk, has this Power.
