List RulesVote your favorite shapeshifting superheroes.

Superheroes who can shapeshift come in many forms (literally). From changing into other life forms to resembling inanimate objects and shapes, these heroes can contort their bodies into almost anything.

However, these guys and gals aren’t always limited to turning into other people. In fact, some heroes (Beast Boy and Martian Manhunter, to name a few) can transform into more massive creatures as part of their normal abilities. From Ms. Marvel, Rogue, Spawn, and more, these shapeshifting superheroes are - if nothing else - definitely shifty. Given the fantastic talents of all these awesome characters, who should be considered the top hero?

Vote up your favorite shapeshifting superheroes to see which character is the best at being incognito.
