Illusion Creation

Lady Mastermind making an illusion of a tiger. Her illusionary powers are powerful enough that people witnessing the tiger do not question the fact it just appeared in the room.

Summary

Illusion creation is the ability to create false sensory input (usually images) to confuse enemies. Illusions can range from something as simple as invisibility to something as complex as creating entire illusory dimensions. Many illusion abilities are considered broken, although the equivalence rule often helps to even it out.
