Dynamic camouflage

Dynamic camouflage ("Chameleon Girl", Ryan Hanover): The ability to blend in with one’s surroundings.

Possible evidence of power and/or personality for this ability: "Ryan Hanover grew up in an impoverished neighborhood of West Memphis, Arkansas. Ryan's dad was an alcoholic and his mom worked as a waitress for much of his childhood. On becoming a teenager, Ryan began getting in and out of trouble with the law." - Heroes Evolutions

"In the aftermath, Rachel asks David where Ryan went, and David says he doesn't know." - Webisode:The Recruit, Part 1

"While writing a letter for his mother in a storage closet in Pinehearst Headquarters, Ryan recalls his service in Iraq, and notes that he was one of those who made it back alive and is going to save the world." - Graphic Novel:Stuck in the Middle

"As Rachel Mills is assisting David Sullivan, Ryan reveals himself, having just injected himself with the synthetic formula in hopes of saving himself after receiving a large wound across his stomach." - Webisode:The Recruit, Part 2

"Ryan gets up and prepares to shoot Rachel again; but, before he can, David grabs him and drags him out of view, and presumably killed him off-screen." - Webisode:The Recruit, Part 3

Other military powers: Enhanced physiology (David Sullivan), Enhanced strength (Scott), Teleportation (Rachel Mills)

"Camouflage became an essential part of modern military tactics after the increase in accuracy and rate of fire of weapons during the 19th century. Despite the value of camouflage, until the 20th century armies tended to use bright colors and bold, impressive designs. These were thought to daunt the enemy, foster unit cohesion, allow easier identification of units in the fog of war, and attract recruits.

On the other hand, the intent of camouflage is to disrupt an outline by merging it with the surroundings, making a target harder to spot or hit. Different countries have undergone different evolutionary stages towards the development of military camouflage." - Military camouflage -- Mike the Man-child!
