The most Powerful ability?

Since most abilities are blocked by Mental manipulation and blocked straight away. Could this ability come into the show so that Mental manipulation does not seem as powerful? --50000JH 13:32, 3 January 2010 (EST)

  • i don't see how this ability is the most powerful, empathic mimicry, intuitive aptitude and ability absorption are easily better. And seeing as it's hardly been used and is unlikely to be massivley used, I don't think it is the most powerful. --mc_hammark 10:35, 4 January 2010 (EST)
    • The deactivation part could be the same as Mental manipulation, Matt uses persuasion and illusion using his telepathy but Candice and Eden cannot read people's minds. --50000JH 17:23, 13 January 2010 (EST)
      • empathic mimicry is still a better ability. --mc_hammark 17:49, 13 January 2010 (EST)

I'm sorry, but how is this the most powerful ability?--ERROR 21:22, 27 January 2010 (EST)

        • If the ability could be used at a range instead of by touch, it may very well be the most powerful ability, as you could disable your opponents abilities (even if they did have EM) before they could be used against you. However, if it remains "touch and go", then there are more powerful abilities.--PJDEP - Need further explanation? 16:16, 18 February 2010 (EST)
          • We don't know if ability immunity applies to this, so if someone with empathic mimicry got close to someone with this, they'd mimic it. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 16:48, 18 February 2010 (EST)

I know this might be going off topic but he could deactivate a truck which proably use more energy than he had use before without touching the handbrake and he had activates toy cars when he Matt Parkman held him--50000JH 18:55, 27 March 2010 (EDT)

The statement that I made above responding to PJDEP statement about "touch and go".--50000JH 13:04, 29 March 2010 (EDT)

You could disable the opponents ability, as a mixes between Power absorbtion and Mental manipulation but not to the point with the user is not too powerful and gain the ability and that the opponet can't access their ability even outside the range of the user.--50000JH 13:11, 29 March 2010 (EDT)

Seriously, it is.--ERROR 21:22, 27 January 2010 (EST)


I hope the writers make Peter replicate this ability in next season, we seen little off it and this is such a brilliant ability to have, it be interesting as well it can develop, doubt it though.--50000JH 19:02, 27 March 2010 (EDT)

Matt Jr hardly use it, what the point in having a show with people with abilities, of putting in the show if they don't show them. No offensive--50000JH 21:03, 27 March 2010 (EDT)
