Insignificance

The text of the article says nothing more than "sylar [sic] forces a spinach can into his hand." I don't even know of anything that links it to Popeye, so we couldn't even beef up the article with trivia--but even if we could, the reference could just as easily (and more significantly) go on Powerless#Trivia. Man, can you imagine how crufty the wiki would be if we had an article about every item that Sylar ever moved with his mind? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:42, 13 December 2008 (EST)

  • I added a few things in the meantime so at least while we discuss deleting it it looks... well, halfway decent. A list of telekinetic subjects would be interesting, for sure... I was planning on going back and rewatching most of the series anyway, I think I'll make a list. --Ricard Desi 11:30, 13 December 2008 (EST)
    • A list of things that were telekinetically moved? Wouldn't that basically be gleaned from examples of telekinesis? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:46, 13 December 2008 (EST)
      • Definitely mis-read your post, I thought you said "crafty", not "crufty". --Ricard Desi 14:30, 13 December 2008 (EST)
  • I agree with Ryan; spinach really isn't notable enough to constitute its own article. Delete. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 18:30, 13 December 2008 (EST)

significance

  • It actually is a reference to Popeye: Allan Arkush admits it in Heroes Unmasked video. I appreciate the humour of this citation of a very different bio-ability as counterbalance to this other reference to Bobby Kennedy and it sure is not Pandora's box! Spinach is enhanced strength, ironic anticipation of "Characters with Synthetic Abilities" and sublime allusion to eating brain. --Juba 08:02, 17 December 2008 (EST)
