just so everyone knows, not just the person that tried adding it to her power list.

Lara Croft does not possess the "implants" power!

we've had this before with Power Girl.

ha ha, very funny...

please don't use the encyclopedia for stupid things like this. the admin and mods do check for stupidity before they approve the submission.

lol, ok, in comicvine 2.0 we'll put a note by the 'implant' power. "Not breast implants!"

think that'll do it?

I think "implants" should be an attribute..not a power :-P

Methos, I think you have used one on me before :-P

This Fan-fic wouldnt be the one I just tried to read would it? The one that is blank!! :-P

No... the blank one i deleted after reading it through again and thinking it was too adult in nature for this site.

no, the one i'm talking about was the "looking for acceptance" fic

it was dealing with Kyle Rayner's anger after the beating of Terry Berg in an issue of Green Lantern.

i thought it was alright when i posted it, but after reading it through i thought better of it.

Back on topic, my very first post(After CC asked if anyone would write up power descriptions):

"I did some descriptions, if you like them I'll do some more. I didn't want to do a lot then find out they were all wrong or something. So tell me what you think of these:

Healing - The ability to heal at an accelerated rate or heal from wounds that would be fatal or would leave a normal person disfigured for life, like being able to regrow limbs and organs.

Ice Control - Generation and shaping of ice.

Immortal - Not being able to die or stay permanently dead.

Implants - Parts of the character were created and then put into their body, they were not born with them. The changes take effect on the physical level but not the genetic level (meaning he/she cannot pass on their implants to their children). The character can be modified organically (better organs, enhanced nervous system), muscularly, given extra parts (such as wings), had changes to the skeleton, be given technological additions (cybernetics), etc. Implants can change the appearance of the person but that's not always the case.

Insaney Rich - The character has a LOT of money. Usually it's so much money that they'll never actually run out so they'll always have enough to do whatever the story calls for. The character can get their money through inheritance, investments, discovery of some valuable new resource or technology, inventions, etc.

Intellect - A character with this power is smarter than normal people, even smarter than the smartest normal(non-powered) people. They are capable of figuring things out and usually build super advanced machines and technologies that (most times) can't actually be explained by modern scientific knowledge. They are the people who build the things that are written about in science fiction books and movies. These characters often are the ones who may not win the first battle against a new opponent, but 2 days later, when the bad guy (or good guy) comes around again, they'll have planned the battle 45 moves in advance and be able to win the fight with ease. Super smart people often have a hard time relating to normal people since they just know so much more.

Invisiblity - The ability to become invisible. This usually works by altering the way light hits them so they can't be seen, so the person is still there and can be heard, touched, smelled (and tasted?), just not seen. Sometimes invisibility can be spread or shared with other people and objects."

I could do some better ones now, but I've yet to get a response to my first attempt all those days ago...

Why doesn't she have the implants power? If she does have implants, then that gives her a decisive tactical and strategic advantages. She could win gun fights because people are mesmerized by her mouthwatering mammoth mammaries. They could be used to break her fall. If she got pushed forward they would absorb some of the shock and lengthen the amount of time it would take for her face to hit the ground.
