Is there a more idiomatic expression than "the more he becomes into x"? I was trying to form a sentence, but I couldn't find the right words. I know there's the expression "the more x he becomes" as in "the more human he becomes", but that expression doesn't work unless x is an adjective. So for some case you need to find an alternate expression and that's where "the more he becomes into x", but it doesn't sound idiomatic at all.

For example:

The more a magician uses lycanthropy spells, the more he becomes into a werewolf.

How would you rephrase the sentence?


You should just say "...the more he becomes a werewolf."

The expression "be into something", means to be very interested in it, or a fan.

John is really into tennis, he plays every day after school.
If you are into wine, you should try some Chilean merlot.

The magician isn't "becoming into werewolves"; he is becoming a werewolf.

    Or he could be turning into a werewolf. But either becoming or into needs to be changed or removed in this context. – Jason Bassford Jul 20 '19 at 18:13
