    Aberrant is a superhero game where the idea that supers (called Novas) are generally going to eventually mutate into something inhuman (it's avoidable in 1e, in 2e it's an inherent part of gaining power). I don't believe characters that actually achieve it have a name in the timeframe of Aberrant, during the sequel Aeon they're called Aberrants and are assumed by most to be the only kind of Nova out there (there's some sane low powered Novas on some of the planets they colonised and a heavily limited variety that doesn't go all alien god, but they're secrets).

    Divas Mal, who depending on edition is either the first Nova or just an unusually powerful one who set off the mass eruptions, takes around two centuries to potentially achieve it (it's ambiguous, he could also just be on the other side of the galaxy).
