Notes for spoilers

I couldn't find specifically the articles that mentioned her from the Spoiler:Season Two article, so if anyone can, feel free to put them in the Notes section.--Bob 15:20, 17 August 2007 (EDT)

  • I was wondering if Lyfeiscake couldn't be Dana Davis because I can't find where does the photo the user uploaded come from ... -- Frenchflo.gif (talk) 15:47, 17 August 2007 (EDT)
    • It doesn't look like it. The picture is also on BuddyTV's website by the way so it's probably from there. (Admin 15:50, 17 August 2007 (EDT))

Micah's cousin

I couldn't find anything that said that Monica is Micah's cousin. Acting as a surrogate, yes, but not cousin. If it's out there, I'd love to see a reference to it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:48, 17 August 2007 (EDT)

  • Found it at TV Guide--Nana is Micah's great-aunt, which makes Monica Micah's second cousin. I can draw a diagram if anybody needs. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:11, 17 August 2007 (EDT)
    • A diagram might help. Nana has a daughter and that daughter has Monica and another kid (a boy I think). Nana has a sibling (who may or may not be Paulette Hawkins) and that sibling is one of DL's parents. DL is Micah's father. So Monica's mother/Nana's daughter is DL's first cousin. Nana is DL's aunt. Monica and her brother are DL's first cousins once removed. --Meteor
      • What i would change in Monica's page is her relationship with either DL or Micah, because she cannot be cousin of BOTH, since one is the father and the other the son; either DL is her cousin and Micah her nephew or Micah is her cousin and DL her uncle. --Elchafa
      • Edit: After reading a bit more, it appears Nana Dawson is Paulette Hawkins' sister, Nana is Monica's grandmother. That makes Monica and DL cousins, wich leads us to Monica being Micah's aunt. so somebody, please change those things in monica's page and check Micah's too cause there's wrong stuff there as well. I'd do it but I don't know how to edit the Wiki things... --Elchafa
        • Monica and Micah share great grandparents (Paulette's and Nana's mother and father) which would make them second cousins, not first cousins. The father of your second cousin is your first cousin once removed. That means DL and Monica are first cousins once removed. Check out this cousin tree to see if that helps. There's also more information at Wikipedia if you'd like to do a little more reading.... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 04:40, 17 October 2008 (EDT)
          • They actually share great-grandparents. Paulette and Nana are sisters, that's right, isn't it? If so, DL is Monica's uncle. therefore DL's son (Micah) is Monica's nephew. Plain simple to me. PS: I must admit i get somewhat confused with the "cousin first removed" stuff, to me it's just cousin, uncle, nephew... I don't take into account the degree of "how much" related they are. if you do take those complicated names into account, then Micah is Monica's nephew in 2nd degree or whatever it's called. --Elchafa 23:02, 20 October 2008 (EDT)
          • I'm sorry, I had it all wrong! Monica's mother is actually DL's cousin, not Monica herself. Please correct me if i'm wrong, I just wanna have this clear. --Elchafa 23:11, 20 October 2008 (EDT)

Name of Power

So far we've only seen her duplicate things shown on TV. I'm trying to think of a good name of this ability, but i dont want something stupid sounding like "Television-Induced Innate Ability" Anyways, maybe if any of you on here watch the anime Naruto, any resembleances of her power to the abilities of the Sharingan? Just something I thought was funny :) --Pred 0212 22:13, 15 October 2007 (EDT)

  • Personally, I like Very Bad Television Mimicry but then I don't much care for wrestling or cooking shows. Thank goodness she wasn't watching Fear Factor. Instead of kicking him, she woulda forced that guy to eat slugs. - ZachsMind 23:31, 16 October 2007 (EDT)
  • What about photographic imitation? The only reason why I say photographic is because like someone with a photographic memory, she could perform any act with exact precision. Also when it showed her watching the wrestling match, the sound effects sounded like camera shutters. FlyingMan 22:18, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
    • A savant is a person who can re-create something by seeing it once... a bit like Enhanced memory, but not quite. One who might be a Savant could be able to hear a piece by Bach and play it back on their piano after just one hearing, or meet a person once and sculpt their figure down to the last detail. syndrome - now, this is a bit of a different, as it's physical, but in general, it's the same thing. She sees an act, and can imitate it. :::: EITHER THAT or something involving flat-out "Mimicry" or "Immitation". --Riddler 22:24, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
    • I think a few of the suggestions are good. I believe the National Enquirer spoilers referred to it as "photographic reflexes." I also like something with "mimicry" in it like "physical mimicry", though there's probably a better word than "physical." (Admin 22:28, 15 October 2007 (EDT))
    • I really like the name photographic reflexes. Jason Garrick
      • I'm not the biggest fan of "Photographic reflexes" only because they aren't really reflexes. A reflex is an uncontrolled reaction to some stimuli. On top of that, her two uses of the power aren't reflexes- making a tomato into a flower and thinking before attacking the robber... this is mimicry in it's finest.--Riddler 22:53, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
      • Also remember, Monica was not even thinking about cutting the tomato when she made it a rose. When she attacked the robber she maybe though about attacking for a split second. She had NO idea that she was going to do that. I think her power is exactly what reflexes. But Riddler, I see what you mean: for instance it isn't the kind of reflex that when you take rubber and hit your knee, your knee flies up. It is almost as if her mental and physical beings are working together to make a photographic powerful "reflex". Tell me if that confuses you. I think the word mimcry is what throws me off. If we use mimicry we should use the word physical. BEcause photographic mimicry sounds like empathic mimicry to me. Beside the first two words being the same. We need to distinguish that Monica's powers to not involved replicating others powers. (Even though we're not sure yet). Also there is a person in the DC universe who has this power. I don't remember who but I'll call my guy tomorrow and ask. But how about:

-Physical Replication -Physical Reflexes -Photographic Physical Replication I think the key words we can use are: Physical, photographic, replication, reflexes, mimicry.

  • Also did anyone notice that Monica's tomato rose was much more detailed than the one she saw on TV? Maybe her power also allows her to improve on any action that she replicates to a greater extent than what she witnesses (also if you think about it, the authenticity of wrestling being real vs. fake is popularly disputed. Perhaps she is improving on the wrestling move by actually performing what was possibly an acted stunt by the wrestler). FlyingMan 23:10, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
    • I don't buy that she didn't know she was gonna do the 619. I do think that she was a little shocked she was able to do it, but the same thing applies to when Peter first flied - even when Claire's toe grew back. You saw she was thinking about it for a second, and ran straight at him. I definitely wouldn't call that reflexive. Again, the definition of a reflex is a subconcious reaction to some stimuli... you can't define something with just half of that (being subconcious.) All the powers started subconcious. Keep that in mind. --Riddler 23:14, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
      • Okay. Anyway. i thought of a pretty good name. It's a bit of a mouthfull, but a jumbling of these words I think could work: Physical Motion REplication. What'd you think? She is able to replicate physical motions. And physical motion mimicry works too. Someone made a page using Photographic reflexes but I changed it for the time being "not official" because her power is not exactly reflexes. Jason Garrick 23:25, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
        • "Photographic reflexes" is the fairly standard comic book name for this ability. See Taskmaster for an example.--Hardvice (talk) 23:31, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
          • I'm leaning towards photographic mimicry. What Monica sees, she can do, just as what Charlie saw or read, she would memorize. Whether or not it's limited as reflex-only is a different and separate matter from the name of the power, cause she might be able to overcome that limit. I guess the first test of my theory is if she can mimick Micah's power... if she can, then photographic mimicry is the best def. If she can't, physical motion mimicry is my choice. We aren't limited to just the standard comic book names.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:33, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
            • No, but it is part of the naming convention--and higher up the list than descriptive names.--Hardvice (talk) 23:36, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
              • You're right, and after reviewing your link about Taskmaster, I've found that Taskmaster wasn't limited to just reflexes either. So I've changed my mind. "photographic reflexes" is the best name.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:41, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
        • I agree with "photographic reflexes" as well. A reflex doesn't have to be involuntary, it depends on the usage of the word and if it's already a common comic power then it already carries more weight than a term being invented. (Admin 23:35, 15 October 2007 (EDT))
          • "Reflex" just doesnt seem right in this situation, Taskmaster or not. 'Cause the word reflex has nothing to do really with this power... almost every power we've seen so far STARTED as a reflexive move. Think of Peter stopping the tasers or Hiro stopping the arrows. As Miami said, we're not limited to Comic Book powers... but I can't argue two of the guys who run this site. It just doesn't seem to fit. =\--Riddler 23:36, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
            • "two of the guys who run this site?" I hope you don't mean me and Hardvice because we don't really have any more say than anyone else. It's a community effort except for very rare instances where the community cannot come to consensus (which has happened exactly once ever so far). (Admin 23:40, 15 October 2007 (EDT))
              • Meh, sorry. Long day, and kinda felt cornered on this. This name just doesn't seem right, not even for the regular comic world. I wonder if they actually ever STATE that that's the name of his power in any of the comics.--Riddler 23:42, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
                • Frequently, and you're right--it sounds a bit dumb when he says it, too. But I think it's a good description.--Hardvice (talk) 23:44, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
                  • I agree with you Riddler, that it doesn't quite make sense, but since it is fiction the name doesn't have to as long as the description matters. In this case, the power is kind of a proper name/title that doesn't get changed even if it is wrong.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:57, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
          • Nope, don't like Photographic Reflexes at all. In fact, I don't like either word as a description of this power. Something along the lines of Visual-Moto Mimicry sounds best to me, only not exactly that. Reproduction would also work. --Fcphantom 23:46, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
            • -raises hand in corne shyfully- hey guys. What do you think of the name I gave it. I think it works.

I think Photographic Reflexes is a lovely name, and Hardvice's reference to a comic book character having pretty much the same ability makes the name seem very credible. Awesome! --Pred 0212 01:06, 16 October 2007 (EDT)

I like photographic reflexes as well, but that's at least partially because I like the Taskmaster character. In any case, I think "reflex" has been being defined a bit too narrowly. A reflex is not just an unconscious response to stimulus. Heck, lists 17 definitions, a couple of which fit this power perfectly: "any automatic, unthinking, often habitual behavior or response"; "a copy; adaptation". It seems to me, based on how she'd been surprised after cutting the tomato and performing the 619 that it was "unthinking". Her considering for a moment could have merely been her deciding that she was going to do something, but she didn't know exactly what until the robber was already on the floor. Also, it seems like most of the point of her power is that it takes something which is rote for someone else - "habitual behaviour" - and allows her to learn how to do it, instantly.
But, in any case, I also have my own idea for what to name the power: "reflex mimicry". This fulfills the requirement of having "mimicry" in the power name, and it also seems appropriate; from what we've seen, she appears to mimic others' "automatic, unthinking, often habitual behaviour".
So, what does everyone think of that? --Anomaly 05:39, 18 October 2007 (EDT)

  • Photographic reflexes is the perfect name for her power, there's nothing to duscuss. I just can't belive we still have a power called "Bliss and Horror" and nobody seems to mind. It sounds just as retarded now as it did a few months ago. --Piemanmoo 05:54, 18 October 2007 (EDT)
    • I mind about "Bliss and Horror". I've just given up on getting it changed. ;)--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:50, 18 October 2007 (EDT)
      • Induced psychotropics, plz. D: --AvadaNella 23:11, 20 October 2007 (EDT)
  • Mohinder gave it a new name, Adopted Muscle Memory. No matter what we prefer, the cannon name will always take precedence, that is a fact. --Snow Leapord 21:10, 29 October 2007 (EDT)
    • He says "adoptive muscle memory" just to be precise. (Admin 21:18, 29 October 2007 (EDT))
      • Guess I misheard him them. --Snow Leapord 22:05, 29 October 2007 (EDT)
      • I thought he said "Adaptive" not "Adoptive" and it makes more sense. HICBW.--WolvenSpectre 22:09, 29 October 2007 (EDT)
        • It's difficult with his accent. What he said sounded like "adoptive" and the closed captioning (which isn't that reliable) also said "adoptive." But I, too, couldn't help but wonder if it was just his accent as he pronounced "adaptive" with a soft a. I believe he did say "adoptive", though. (Admin 22:12, 29 October 2007 (EDT))
        • Makes less sense. Adaptive = Able to change to the environment/conditions/stimuli. Adoptive = Able to take on something. Monica is able to take on physical abilities by seeing them. In any case, he definitely said Adoptive.--Riddler 22:13, 29 October 2007 (EDT)
          • Adaptive is also used to refer to something that when it enters a new enviroment or situation changes or learns to fit into the new situation. An Adaptive Algorithm in programming is one that evolves by learning and changes acording to the changesit encounters. Because of this many references to learning in science in recent years use the term 'adative' here are some quick examples I googled up [1], [2], [3]. --WolvenSpectre 16:42, 30 October 2007 (EDT)

Mimokinesia, meaning "mimicking movements." --Joe Webster 02:33, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

Perhaps Photographic Reflexes isn't right because

  • I happen to like that name and the name I gave it. But Photographic Reflexes is a comic book term that we're arguing about. Heroes really isn't a comic book. If so maybe we should called Enhanced Strength, super strength! I mean that is what that is. And so on and so forth. But I'm kind of neutral. I like photographic reflexes and i don't... o.O Ah well g'night.Jason Garrick 00:03, 16 October 2007 (EDT)
    • That is a bit of an argument that might need to be adjusted to the standards. Alot of the powers we've named, we've done so in a sense that there is another power we have already named. We named Enhanced Strength, Enhanced Memory, and Enhanced Hearing all based on the "Enhanced" title. The common terms in comics aren't these, rather, "Superhuman Strength" and "Superhuman senses."--Riddler 00:06, 16 October 2007 (EDT)
      • That argument can be used for both sides. Telepathy, technopathy, telekinesis, pyrokinesis, and cryokinesis are comic book terms as well. It's not about whether it's commonly used or not, it's just what makes sense. Monica's mind seems to "photograph" the actions she sees and later replicates them without any second thought, much like a "reflex"?
        • If Monica's ability expands to include power adoption (which only makes sense), then it should be changed to "Optical Mimicry" to coincide with Peter's "Empathic Mimicry" and Sylar's should be changed to "Intuitive Mimicry" to set the mimics consistently apart from the other heroes. - ZachsMind 23:27, 16 October 2007 (EDT)
  • I'm a little late to this discussion, but I think it maybe a little premature to lock down the powers name as we haven't gotten more than the base intro to it, and I too also thought of The Taskmaster from Marvel, which they have had a dozen different names for his abilities including (and I'm not kidding here) "'anything I have seen you do I can do better' ability". Until the power gets a little more defined. The best description I have ever heard is "visually orientated skill mimicry and mastery" which I have seen applied to several villains over time including a one shot (from an independent) called "The Unstoppable Force" when translated from Russian. Whether this is the case with Monica or not we just don't know yet.--WolvenSpectre 08:10, 21 October 2007 (EDT)
    • "Photographic reflexes" is probably fine for now. It describes what we've seen without implying more. As we learn more, we can always change it if it becomes necessary.--Hardvice (talk) 08:14, 21 October 2007 (EDT)
      • Photographic Reflexes is no longer the correct name for the power, on the show Micah firmly cemented that it is called Muscle Mimic. --Snow Leapord 21:43, 22 October 2007 (EDT)
        • Close--he said that St. Joan is a muscle mimic, which would presumably make her power "muscle mimicry". He also called her a copycat, but I don't think "copycatting" sounds very good for a power. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:27, 22 October 2007 (EDT)
        • I have heard the term before in the comic book world many years ago. It was a combo of 2 different sets of powers. Muscle Memory was a power that lasted even past the point in the real world when the term actually was proven not to exist after some scientists had hypothesized it did. In the real world it was believed that if you trained something enough much of the 'work' the brain did to have you do an activity you did on a very regular basis was taken over by the nervous system connecting the muscles to the spinal chord. Simply, you do something enough your brain only has to do a push button command instead of telling it to do every little thing that makes up doing that activity because your "muscles" remember. In comic book reality it usually referred to the ability to do something once or twice correctly and then their muscles remember how to do it permanently or as long as they did it on some regular basis. Mimics in the comic book world almost always refer to people who simply have to see things to imitate or be able to do something (sometimes even better than the original) but only for a limited time. The term muscle mimic was the combination of these powers meaning that the person is not cognoscente of how to do it, as they never learned how, but the copied abilities that the person had seen and now has the ability to call up at will. They are unable to teach the skill never having learned it and their weakness usually involves mirrors when they see themselves using skills they absorbed through this ability.--WolvenSpectre 11:14, 23 October 2007 (EDT)

main character?

I don't know who moved her to the principle cast, but I would relegate her to supporting for now (though it pains me).--Bob (Talk) 00:45, 16 October 2007 (EDT)

  • Dana Davis is a member of the principle cast; I just checked the beginning credits. (Admin 00:48, 16 October 2007 (EDT))
    • Like we've always said - if an actor's name is in the first set of credits, then they are in the principle cast. It's the one distinction we have a strict rule for. --Fcphantom 00:50, 16 October 2007 (EDT)
      • It's one of my favorites because it's so easy to confirm! (Admin 00:51, 16 October 2007 (EDT))
        • I had put Monica's name in the principals on the first page. I specifically remember seeing it too. I thought they were naming supporting and then they said Also etc. i'm so happy she's a main character. I wish Takezo was though.

Monica's Sound and 'Costume'

Did anyone else notice that on more than one occasion during Kindness of Strangers, when Monica's power was kicking in, there was a near mechanical sound embedded into the music? It reminded me vaguely of Billy Joel's song "Goodnight Saigon" which opens up with helicopter blades. I bring this up because the only other character that comes to mind with his own distinctive sound is Sylar's clockworking. Matt's got this vague occasional echoey thing when he's trying to listen to people but it's not as consistent. Most of the other characters don't really have their own sound, aside from Sylar and Monica. Also distinctive is her uniform. I can only think of two other characters who've appeared in a uniform with any consistency: Matt (policeman) and Claire (cheerleader). Both characters have since abandoned their uniforms but Claire's about to wear one again, and Matt could always get demoted. LOL. Last year it was "The Cheerleader" but this year it looks like it's "The Burgercane"! - ZachsMind 23:21, 16 October 2007 (EDT)

  • I think the sound is supposed to hearken back to the old ten-million dollar man and the old bionic woman.--E rowe 10:25, 17 October 2007 (EDT)
    • Actually, after I rewatched Season One, I noticed that a few characters have distinct sounds in their music. Jessiki's music had a sortof howling female choir, Sylar had his ticking clock but a sweet piano theme when he visited his mother, and Micah has some techno boops and beeps. I'm sure there're more, but I'll have to give it another rewatch to find out. =D --AvadaNella 23:08, 19 October 2007 (EDT)

A new Peter?

Would it be possible for her to learn how to Fly, regenerate and gain other super powers just by watching TV shows?

  • So far, she can only replicate physical motions. If she can replicate energical or mental ones, like a Kamehameha Wave or Nathan's power of flight, then we'll find out soon enough. =P --AvadaNella 11:37, 17 October 2007 (EDT)
    • But if Matts dad had telepathy and that power expanded to some dream thing, isn't it possible for Monicas power to expand so she can copy more difficult things eg. flying? --Emmy141 10:28, 26 October 2007
      • That seems like a stretch. Matt's dad has learned to use his existing power to convince people's brains that they're seeing something different than they really are. Considering Matt is just now barely able to send thoughts into people's brains, let alone hallucinations, it's quite an accomplishment, but what Maury's doing is still possible under the umbrella of "telepathy"--sending and receiving information brain-to-brain. If Monica's ability just allows her to learn new skills that her body is already physically capable of acting out, then her power has no mechanism to exceed her body's abilities. The real power is the ability to learn instantly, not the ability to do, and to my mind at least, all the time, practice, and development in the world won't change that. That's like saying Nathan could eventually learn to teleport--a more advanced means of travel, but not a more advanced version of flight. Now it's possible that at some point the writers will rethink Monica's power and let her copy powers, but it would be a rethinking, not a natural extension of what she can already do. And I wouldn't bet on it; the writers have already confessed that writing believable, workable stories for two multi-powered characters is a big challenge. It's something comic writers have struggled with for years--the original Mimic was eventually written out of the X-Men because he was just too unwieldy. Over-powered characters make it hard to tell good stories because they just have answers for everything you throw at them, and they make the other characters seem superfluous. Look what they've done in order to make Peter and Sylar fit in so far this season: Peter's amnesiac and Sylar's powerless. That's not an accident; it's an easy way to bring them both back down to size so the story can start fresh without them overwhelming it. I just don't see them introducing a third multi-powered character any time soon.--Hardvice (talk) 12:26, 26 October 2007 (EDT)
        • Two somewhat applicable notes from the latest Behind the Eclipse:
          Monica can only do things within her physical limit. Now as an athletic 20-year-old girl, there are a lot of things within her limit. But, no—if she saw Nathan fly, she couldn't fly.
          There's a lot of people who want our heroes to have more than one power. When did this trend start?
          -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:55, 26 October 2007 (EDT)


  • I agree about Monica not being able to copy powers, but it seems to me that they may be introducing two new multi-powered characters this season. What Charles and Angela were discussing that there would be two, one good and one bad, makes me think that there were at least two multi-powered members around the time the group of twelve was formed. The writers seem to be able to kill off even the most powerful characters (ie. Candice) with the simplest of ease. I wouldn't doubt the possibility of more multi-powered characters existing in the past and present.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:53, 26 October 2007 (EDT)
    • I don't doubt that they'll introduce other multi-powered characters in past stories or as tangential characters. I just don't think they're likely to make another series regular into a multi-powered character.--Hardvice (talk) 13:15, 26 October 2007 (EDT)
      • Right, but who becomes a series regular is often out of the producers hands. If they get a good reaction to the character, it's likely to stay on multi-powered or not.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:25, 26 October 2007 (EDT)

Wasn't the Hooded killer was Adam/Kensei? --(. .') 11:48, 27 February 2008 (EST)

  • Correct, but Ted's message was left on October 26 before the episode that revealed that aired. :) (Admin 11:52, 27 February 2008 (EST))


Should we start an article called Monica's iPod since it appears that it will be an important equipment. --Pinkkeith 12:13, 27 November 2007 (EST)

Her iPod is not some magical artifact. It's just an iPod she uses to learn new physical skills by watching videos. Not much more you can say about it. Clayjar 11:03, 19 December 2007 (EST)

  • I think you're a bit late, bud. :) --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 11:05, 19 December 2007 (EST)
  • Magical or not (and obviously not), it's still important in Monica's life, has appeared in numerous episodes, and is a cool bit of product placement. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:32, 19 December 2007 (EST)


I think we should put her age as 20. I read in an interview one time: "Monica can only do things within her physical limit. Now as an athletic 20-year-old girl, there are a lot of things within her limit. But, no — if she saw Nathan fly, she couldn't fly." --(. .') 11:40, 26 February 2008 (EST)

  • I'd be more inclined to agree if they hadn't used a round number like 20 since that could easily be an approximation rather than an exact age. We're going to have to wait for something more precise before we can include it as her age. (Admin 12:03, 26 February 2008 (EST))

      • No need to be sorry. It's a very helpful quote. I remember reading that quote before, but I had forgotten all about it. Keep 'em coming! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:51, 26 February 2008 (EST)
      • Exactly, there's no need to be sorry. :) Everything here is about presenting information and getting to discuss it. You did exactly the right thing by bringing it up. (Admin 12:55, 26 February 2008 (EST))

Once removed

I believe there is an interview floating around out there somewhere which states Monica and Micah are second cousins, which would surely make Nana and Paulette either sisters or sisters-in-law. But I don't think there's any in-show confirmation of this yet. I'd rather leave that information in the notes until we have another source that confirms the relationships. In the meantime, there's nothing wrong with calling D.L. "Monica's cousin" since even a first cousin once removed is still a cousin. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:25, 7 April 2008 (EDT)

...while Nikki is away.

Read the second line of this article. "...while Nikki is away." Nikki is dead, not "away". Might want to change that. (?)

You could have changed it yourself easily, but okay... Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 23:04, 20 October 2008 (EDT)
Now that I actually look at the line, it doesn't say "while Niki is away" at all. It says "Niki's absence." Her being dead would count as an absence. From life. (now I'm just being mean. >_>;) Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 23:06, 20 October 2008 (EDT)
  • The line you are talking about is refering to Nikki's absence while she was at The Company getting better. It does not have anything to do with Nikki's death as we have no eveidence that Monica has been with Micha at all since Powerless --D_Toccs 7:233, 14 December 2008 (EDT)

Monica to return?

I don't know if this is true or not, but I saw on IMDB that the actress who portrays Monica Dawson is credited for episode 13 (War) of season 3. Does this mean she could possibly come back, maybe as St. Joan to fight the Villains or do you think IMDB just has no idea what they are talking about? I hope she does come back, she was one of the more promising characters of season 2, not to mention her power rocked! Here's the source. 19:22, 19 November 2008 (EST)

I don't doubt it. I hear lots of old faces will be reappearing in the volume finale. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 19:23, 19 November 2008 (EST)
I'm actually very worried for Monica, as she isn't listed as a guest star, so I'm afraid her appearance may be brief, or she may be killed off in a "loose ends" situation. I mean, Echo and Eric Doyle appear in this episode, and Duality was originally called "War". With all the story lines going on, I doubt Monica is going to get a distress call from New Orleans to Fort Lee or Hartford... --TraverseTown 10:07, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Well, we got absolutely zero old faces. Other than, I dunno, Echo, I guess. But they killed him off so quickly that it didn't really even matter. What a shame. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 21:50, 16 December 2008 (EST) hopefully monica would return , she is girl with pontential ! she fits perfectly in heroes because her power is not over top like time travel or super strength but is also usefully for fighting bad guys in her own way, was'nt she going to fight knox? --Zoga78 17:07, 6 March 2009 (EST)

Barbara and Tracy

ok I added Barbara and Tracy to her reletives and now they're gone. I mean they are related by marriage right? I just think that they should be mentioned. -- Earl

  • I might be wrong, but I don't believe that a cousin's wife's sisters have any official relation to you. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:36, 22 April 2009 (EDT)

Not Coming Back?

The actress who plays Monica, Dana Davis, is on a new show on ABC Family, a remake of the movie "10 Things I Hate About You" does anyone else think this means she has moved on from Heroes and wont be back? I would bring up the Lisa Lackey (Janice) example of coming back after so long, but she wasn't doing much else... --Skullman1392 13:29, 25 June 2009 (EDT)

Ice Queen, Part 1 summary

There's something wrong with the summary for Ice Queen, Part 1. It says, "Micah tells Tracy that he has Monica and Rebellion that can handle the heat from the government if Tracy does not think she can handle it.". Either the grammar is off or the content is off, but I don't have access to reread the graphic novel so I can't tell. Anybody able to fix it? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:48, 22 August 2015 (EDT)

  • How is that? ~~IHHTalk 08:51, 23 August 2015 (EDT)
    • I think it was the double "that" which was throwing me off. "...that he has them that can keep..." I changed it slightly after rereading the novel (thanks for the talarino tip!) to clarify it. Thanks! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:31, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
