As a living electromagnet user can shape and manipulate magnetic fields for a variety of effects, including manipulating ferrous objects and materials to their advantage, such as being able to create a make-shift shield out of scrap metal or walk on walls, attracting the iron particles in the ground around them.
No matter what size the object is that user picks up and throws with this ability, it is always accompanied by a mid or large size explosion upon impact. This is because performing this technique requires a massive amount of energy which discharges when the object makes contact with its target. Fortunately this massive energy requirement can be reduced with training allowing a great deal more versatility.
Magnetism is caused by a difference in electron energy levels, to make a long, long story short. Thusly, there are many magnetic compounds which don't contain any form of iron. There are also thousands of heavy metal (rubidium, niobium, magnesium, chromium, copper, silver, nickel, Germanium, silicon, arsenic, etc. -- basically, anything in the 'transition metal' part of the periodic table, and they're in almost everything) compounds and heavy metals which make magnets that are hundreds of times stronger than a normal ferrous magnet. So Kinetic Pulse renders virtually anything metallic used against user completely useless.
Kinetic Pulse requires an incredible degree of ability and skill to use. Skilled users are able fine tuned this technique to work on a molecular level allowing them to nearly liquefy, mend, and reconstruct metallic objects, altering the shape and densities of metal to what they can imagine. It is even possible to pull the metal out of the ground. Kinetic Pulse can also be used to open mechanical locks by magnetically manipulating the pins.
Kinetic Pulse’s range is proportional to user’s skill level, but their control in this diameter depends entirely on how close the object is to their person. The further user is removed the less their ability to effect metal. At the full distance, the technique can do little more than move a thing around, and without any great deal of delicacy.
