Are there any stories where the MCs power is mainly making portals?

    I had planned on making a story focused on a character with an OP portal creating powers. He would use the different properties of portals. He could open a portal at any point in space, he could move said portals after creating it, in any direction. These portals could also be entered from both sides, and when these portals are closed none could enter or pass through. He would also use the closed portals as shields since basically nothing could pass through it, he could also change the portal's size.

    His power ups could be improvement in amount of portals he can make, how far he can summon the other end of the porta, etc.

    Was there ever anything like that other than that one chick from Generator Rex?

    I could name a few, but they would not be an exact match.

    Myth Adventures is kind of based on this.
    The Rift War Series

    Dr. Strange kind of does this.

    Really? I thought Wakfu was about fantasy-soccer or something.

    Strange was actually one of the inspirations for the idea, especially with the way how the can cut you if closed on you. I plan to use that concept as well for the MCs fights. However, the idea was mainly from one of the villains from Generator Rex. The way she used her portals by just throwing them at the opponent. It got me thinking, "Woah, thats kinda OP if used better." What if she created a portal from outerspace and the other end is facing her enemy on earth, that way the enemy would sucked into the portal from the force of the vacuum of space. I have even thought about making a sword or armor made out of portals.

    It has some fantasy soccer but that isn't the basis of the show, it actually goes much deeper than that. Here's the summary:
    In a fantasy world, a mysterious figure leaves a baby boy with a retired bounty hunter in a small village with instructions to raise him until the time is right for him to find his biological family.
    This is pretty much the basis but it's actually really good!

    Seems cool. I wanna check it out because the MC has similar powers to my MC. Is there a site with english dub?

    The Lost Gate by Orson Scott Card has something pretty similar.

    Don't know of a specific tale. Planescape: Torment has a lot of portals, and the MC's uncle is a sort of keeper of portals, fixer of them, and yes, creator of them. Anyway, the city of Sigil is itself the City of Doors, so lots of trans-dimensional stuff happening there.

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I have confirmed that I may have made my MC a little OP.
