Prehensile hair worth adding?

When I was editing the profile for Lorelei I realized that her power was not currently listed, nor is there a power listed for Medusa of the Inhumans. Cascader wasn't sure that "Prehensile Hair" was worth the add. There obviously needs to be some control over the powers section or we will see all sorts of unnecessary stuff popping up, however I can't think of anything else that this should go under. I am pretty sure that there was a spider-girl from D.C. that also shared this power.

Can anyone else think of any other characters with this power? Since it is obviously used and no other category will suit it is it worth the add?

When I was editing someone a while back (forget who, but they had a tail) I was thinking there should be something for people with extra appendages. This would cover people with prehensile tails, wings, extra limbs, etc. I guess Lorelei (as well as Medusa) would have this power too, since their hair acts like extra limbs. So, anyone think 'Extra Appendages' could/should be a power?

I like where that's heading but perhaps "Extra/Powered Appendage". That sounds terrible but you know what I mean. Hair isn't exactly something that would be extra but that could also extend to toad's tongue etc. Good? Bad? Better title?

How about Prehensile appendages. and would this cover tenticles, like Venom and Carnage.

Oh man I just laughed so hard... I seriously misread "tenticles" for something else.

What do you think, L.A.M.P., Prehensile Appendage work? Like I said, it would be nice if we had something for all of the above characters that have a power that isn't currently described.

Instead of Prehensile Appendage there could be 'Unusual Features' that could include prehensile hair, tails, tentacles and whatnot. Specifics could be described in the bio section.

I like something like Prehensile Appendages better however because while it covers a broad spectrum (all of the things you named and more) it is more limited in scope. For instance being blue could be an unusual feature. I think those two should not be in the same category. I was thinking something that would describe something attached to the body that is unusual or unusually powered.

"Unusual Features" sounds like something we would use to determine who has the biggest freak-out factor, like Man-Thing or Deadpool.

I totally agree,
Many characters have Prehensile Hair nowerdays

so it should definately be worth adding into the mix .


Or if not, atleast add Elasticity to her ... since she has a degree of that when controlling her hair.

Medusa, Lorelei, and...???

Anyway, it's been 2 years since this thread was active.  It's not worth resurrecting for 2 characters.

Spider-Girl (LOSH)

Godiva
Skein/Gypsy Moth

Definately more.

and anyway, atleast credit her as having Elasticity, or something.
