My OC, Gumiyah, a.k.a. "Gum Gal" doing a - simple for her - front standing split and giving us a little salute too! She'd been in her high school's cheer squad before she gained her superpowers, so while this previously was in her skillset, it's now positively trivial.

Awesome art commissioned through :iconjen-and-kris:

I want to imagine like she on her new discovered powers go in a práctice and by accident

Pull 360 split and then its like her tool to finish up or even love around while the rubber time is down

Lovely to also imagine her in split and arm overbent to multi task

The possibilities are endless! She was unaware of her powers for years and just thought she was progressing really quickly in yoga (and she was already pretty flexible from cheerleading beforehand); it wasn't until she wound up in a hazardous situation that they were "activated" and she came to the attention of people who could nurture her abilities.

This means that much of her training is in fact to remove mental blocks, increase her awareness, and train in muscle memory for when she stretches out; her strength and passive flexibility are also beyond peak human performance, but that doesn't necessarily make one a good gymnast or contortionist all by itself.

The fact of subjects with máss and body modification study and further treatment is her unpredictability

So her i just got noticed by héroes just in the moment of almost die story

I dig it

So she is trying to shorten her cd on her stretch? or try to raise her already impresive i bet joint twisting skills into no diference bewteen gum mode and twisty mide

Basically, for X amount of flexibility she has on non-empowered days Gumiyah would gain an exponential amount of elasticity when super, but the challenge becomes retaining the muscle memory and coordination required to use it effectively at all - hence why she trains those qualities so hard in regular human form.

So instead a bonus is a weekly multiplier

Boi i can imagine the part of retain muscle during the stretchy to not tangle herself and out

Going from "yep ithink i can split and do a sphynx " from short stretch for a prank to " do i rember how to walk?" after going the mile length

Just like any sort of stretching exercise, elongating herself will tire Gumiyah out faster than her usual gymnastics or contortion, so she goes positively couch potato the morning after; the yoga helps her untie the knots and release the tension resulting from all her exertions.

Piled up next morning rubbing and soft bending while watching herself on the news how heroic level of hung over XD

Ha, I should get a request/commission of that! Maybe struggling to do a sun salutation while she watches the news.
