Hm, if he can get little amounts of age, get from a spread-out group of volunteers....

Or hey, can he just dial up an Asgardian and yoink an insignificant amount of time from them?

If he gets younger the more he absorbs, he might hit zygote levels!

Though the question would be what would volunteers get in return except for a shorter lifespan.

He and Selene should date and swap life vampiring tips.

It didn't end well for the last guy to do that.

Has she dated a fellow life vampire before? That sounds like it would have been wacky hi-jinks!

If he got rich, well, I imagine a lot of people would take money for, like 6 months.

Or... hm, how about, someone wants to transfer youth to someone else (let's say there's a couple 10 years apart in age). He moves it over, but keeps a little.

I'm sure there's ways.

I think the words that would keeptspringing to mind would be "Ethically dubious", but hey, it's a free market... I guess.

Teens who want to get respect from being older would probably jump at the chance of skipping out on that awkward puberty-phase.

A 14 year old in a 25 year old body? That... wouldn't end well.

wow, poor dude... though if he can just find some rodent animals and do the same to them, very few people are gonna object (relatively speaking)

If it works with animals he can just find an immortal jellyfish and use that. Somehow I don't think we'll get the less angsty version, though.

If he goes around to farmers, he can rapid-grow livestock from birth/eggs to slaughtering age with minimal cruelty. Arguably, a chicken instantly aged from an egg would be barely conscious (even by chicken standards).

And if it works with plants, he's Demeter.

OOh, yea, if it works on non-humans that's awesome.

But as he *absorbs* the age, there's a limit, he has to de-age things too.

Fortunately, that's the easy side. Even if there weren't millions of people who wanted their youth back, he could de-age members of endangered species, aged trees that were about to fall, hens that were too old to lay anymore. (It's all about the chickens, see.)

He could also provide the most effortless late-term abortions ever.

I like that they didn't make him evil. Far too often comics instantly assume that only terrible people would get powers that have an immediately obvious negative effect like that.

Right. It's pretty... convenient that evil powers either go to evil people or people with evil tendencies they're trying to suppress.

Simple solution at hand, I think. There are a whole bunch of soldiers around, who don't have a medic symbol on their arm, who signed up to die for their country...

I am, at best, an okay person.
