African Transformation God

God of Shape-Changing

An amorphous deity of many parts and capabilities, he can change into anything from an antelope to a praying mantis. He also owns magic sandals which can turn into guard dogs. Sounds fantastic. The superhero comics industry should seriously think about making him an offer. How about Captain Cagn?

His handy powers do not always prevent him from getting eaten by ants or ogres. But no problem. His bones became ‘Them Bones’ and, like a film run backwards, miraculously joint themselves together. Result: total restoration.
