Theory Citations Notes
Micah, Molly, Sanjog and Monica will create a superhero team (not unlike that of SuperFriends), the likes of which have never been seen. Micah has expressed interest multiples time in creating a team with his parents (i.e. the Fantastic Four minus one). + Everyone will get too old to fight evil.
Arthur was very old but didn't stopped fighting, despite being evil.

+ They are all of similar age.
- Sanjog lives on the other side of the world.

+ Mohinder tells Maya that he sent Molly to Madras, India in The Second Coming. Sanjog lives in Chennai, which is the new name for Madras. It would not take very long for the two to meet. Assuming that Monica and Micah have been keeping tabs on each other, only one person from either duo would have to connect in order for the four to come together.

People from all over the country and world have found each other because they are special.

+ Chandra Suresh found several evolved humans without super abilities. It would be easy for either Molly to find Micah with clairvoyance or Micah to find Molly by searching the computers for information.

- Matt Parkman and Mohinder would not approve of Molly running off.

+ Mohinder and Matt have recently been too preoccupied to notice were Molly to do anything.

Recently, Molly's note on the assignment tracker map moved to India - the same place as Sanjog.
- They will get tired of Micah's constant moaning.

They all want to be heroes as well. Sanjog is the only one who has not openly stated he wanted to help people, but does so anyway.

- Molly's and Sanjog's power are pretty much useless in combat.

+ Their powers are useful politically. They can find anybody, relay information without risking Danko overhearing somehow, and can be field support for Monica.

They could jut use weapons, just like a bowstaff.

A bowstaff isn't really a good weapon to use against a mad-marauding villain.

+ It's possible that Molly, Sanjog and maybe even Micah could be the “Brains” of the organization.
- Monica would be so out of place if she joins a group of kids twice younger than her age.

+ Age differences haven't prevented previous team-ups.
- Micah's voice has now broken.
More time has passed in reality than in-universe, the actor got older, doesn't mean the character got as much older as the actor.
Micah and Molly are very stubborn. If they set their minds to helping people, Monica will most likely join them to help protect them.
With the government hunting specials, Monica may have no choice.
Micah is not exceptionally intelligent like his mother claims. She just assumed he was because he was so good with computers due to his power. None - Micah was smart enough to know something was up when Candice was pretending to be his mother. He also saw something was wrong with Niki before anyone else and saw through his father's lies fairly easily for a ten-year-old of ordinary intelligence.

- He was not fooled by Jessica trying to impersonate Niki over the phone. (Nothing to Hide)
+ Although these are intelligent traits for a 10 year old, they are not academic traits. Many people have been known to do poorly in an academic setting while being very capable with communicating and dealing with day to day situations.
- Micah shows a prodigy-like ability to play the piano in Fight or Flight. He also realizes what Monica's ability means. Since the actor Noah Gray-Cabey is a child prodigy, there is no reason for Micah not to be.

Micah has feelings for Molly and they will get together in a future episode. None + Micah and Molly smiled to each other after Micah used his powers to use a shutdown elevator. (How to Stop an Exploding Man)

They probably like each other, but it seems unlikely that they would be dating at such a young age.

They can just simply be friends if they ever get together.

- Molly may have been smiling because Micah saved them from being caught and possibly killed by Linderman's guards.

+ Molly seems to be smiling back at Micah after he gave her a sweet little smile.

+ In real life, Adair Tishler and Noah Gray-Cabey are great friends. If they had to date, they would probably do it.
If Micah truly is now an orphan, then it frees him up to live a new life, one that may take Monica and Micah closer to New York and Mohinder, the one who tried to save Niki, and closer to Molly. It would not only bring Micah and Molly together, but it would bring Monica closer to the Company to get the dagger of St. Joan. Also, the writers may enjoy the idea that all the people whose first initial is "M" are in one place: Matt, Mohinder, Molly, Maya, and maybe Micah and Monica.

Micah will build a cybernetic limb, like Forge and Cable; a time machine like Forge and Cable; an evolved human tracking or detecting device. None + Micah understands how machines work so could be capable of improving them to do what he desires.

- There's no evidence that Micah's abilities extend to building new technology. He's only been shown repairing existing technology.

In Genesis, Micah is shown building a new motherboard for his computer.
Micah is unusual because he exhibits powers as a child. This is because both of his parents are also evolved humans. Micah used an out-of-order pay-phone to call his mother. He places his hand on ATMs and they dispense money. (The Fix) + The next youngest character to have powers is Sanjog Iyer - who seems to be Micah's age - followed by Claire Bennet, who is 16. Both of Micah's parents are evolved humans; both of Claire's biological parents are evolved; nothing is known about Sanjog's parents.

+ All other powered characters did not become aware of their abilities until well into adulthood. It also seems likely considering that the abilities have to do with genetics. As such there would theoretically be greater odds that two evolved parents produce an evolved child.
- The graphic novels indicate that several evolved humans displayed powers at various young ages, including Linderman and Sarah Ellis. Also, Molly Walker is around the same age as Micah, and only one of her parents was thought to be an evolved human.
- When Noah Bennet is given Claire, Kaito Nakamura tells him to bring her in "as soon as she manifests". He seems to believe that it could happen at any time (as opposed to saying "We will return for her when she is older").

+ Kaito simply wants to see Claire's power as soon it manifests, to stop Noah hiding her as he eventually ends up doing. This could be when she's 6, or 60. Why say "bring her in whenever" when they can learn more about her ability as soon as it is discovered?
The early manifestation of Micah's abilities may be related to his intelligence. None + It has been quasi-demonstrated that Micah is smarter than most children his age, and he is often referred to by Niki as "my little genius". It has also been stated that the abilities are dependent on the brain. It's not a far jump to assume that Micah is a genius, and as such, if the abilities are in fact dependent on the user's brains, then Micah's increased cognitive abilities might contribute to his early development.

+ Sanjog is a wise boy and his powers developed early as well.
- Molly Walker manifested at an early age and has not shown any signs of above-average intelligence.
- Matt, Jr. is a baby.

Micah is the one who distorted the recording of Niki and Linderman's thugs in the video camera. None - Micah was at Tina's house when Niki first watched the video and saw that it was scrambled. Since his power seems to require physical contact with the device he would have no way to scramble it.

The camera was connected to Niki's computer for her Internet porn show, and Micah was able to influence all the district 12 voting machines because they were networked, so since he knew his mom was "not right" and he knew what she did in the garage, he could have accessed the camera remotely to clear the video footage so she was not implicated in a crime.
The camera is also shown being knocked over, probably in a violent manner given the circumstances. This would likely distort the video upon impact.

Since Micah can interact with machines, he can possibly get a virus from a computer. None + In The Death of Hana Gitelman, Hana died from getting infected by a virus.

- She may have been infected with a virus, but it is more likely she died from riding a satellite into Earth's atmosphere.
- Micah's ability is different from Hana's: she sent her mind to the world of electronic data, while Micah simply tells the machines what to do.

Micah's abilities are not limited to those of a technological nature. He can receive thoughts or emotions from other people by touching them (possibly through electrical signals). Micah knows about Jessica, possibly before Niki does. (Homecoming)

Micah realizes that Candice is not his mother after hugging her. (The Hard Part)
He seems to pick up on Monica's broken dreams when they embrace in The Kindness of Strangers.

+ Micah touches machines in order to manipulate them, sending and receiving electronic signals. Nerves in the human body transmit electronic signals from the brain, through the spinal column, and throughout the body. If Micah touches a person, he may be able to pick up some of these signals. Micah may have to touch an area of high nerve concentration, such as the brain or spine, to receive thoughts.

+ As Micah hugs Candice, he looks worried. As soon as Candice is out of sight, he heads for the door.
+ The camera seems to linger for a dramatically long time on Micah's hand as it rests on Monica's back. Afterward, Micah says that he was unable to "fix her dreams", which refers to what she had been thinking about (her thwarted desires to go to college, get out of New Orleans, and train to be a manager).
If Micah can receive nerve signals, he may also be able to send them, controlling different aspects of another person's physiology.

Linderman deliberately arranged D.L. and Niki's marriage so that they would give birth to a child with technopathy. Linderman says that he was the reason Micah was born. (Landslide) + Micah's technopathy was a vital part of Linderman's plan to get Nathan elected.

This would imply that there is some way to predict what powers the offspring of evolved humans will have.
+ Micah's power is the only so far that is totally apart from both parents, all the others evolved humans with evolved parents share some power similarity. This could be because Linderman was doing some kind of genetic experiments.

- Claire's ability of regeneration is completely different from both her mother's ability and her father's ability.

+ Claire can heal and Meridith is invulnerable to fire. These powers seem somewhat related, if slightly different.

These powers are not related. Meredith cannot be harmed by fire, while Claire can be harmed by anything, although she heals herself anyway.

+ Linderman was referring to the Company's use of precogs to determine what combination of individuals (not powers) would produce Micah.

Micah will develop his powers to be like Hana's. None + Matt was able to "evolve" his power to be more like his father's.

- Hana's abilities did not manifest the same as Micah's. In order for this theory to be correct, she would have needed to develop her powers to that point.
- Hana isn't Micah's mother.

There is no evidence that evolved humans have to be related to share a power.
West and Nathan Petrelli for example.

+ He got traffic lights to change without touching them.

He did have a cell phone in his hand that was connecting to a network (looking for Monica's cell). He may have accessed it through that.
He did. Like when he told his PDA thing to tell the fire alarm to tell the sprinklers to turn on. (Cold Snap)
Micah is the most massively destructive evolved human. None + Micah is able to hack into any computer system, which makes him the perfect terrorist that may fire nuclear missiles of every country to destroy the world.
- Micah may not be able to circumvent some safeties that are in place for nuclear missiles, and he requires access to the network the missiles are located on in order to launch them.
- Aron Coleite and Joe Pokaski stated in Behind The Eclipse that Micah would appear in Volume Four.
Micah is the new super hero. None + He has his motives:

1. Death of his parents 2. He reads comic books. 3. He has a super power. 4. He can run away from Nana.

+ Heroes is about ordinary people with extraordinary gifts... the only reference we got of them being super heroes is a short comic of Peter dreaming he's captain Skyguy. Micah is obsessed with super heroes and the reasons stated above would intensify these motives to become a hero. He can control technology maybe by wearing a simple costume or disguise, he can help out from a distance and no doubt he will go after the guys who killed his mother.
Micah will resurrect Hana Gitelman. None + It has been shown that Micah has greater control over his ability (to the point that he does not even need to touch a computer). He may have such control that he can bring back previously deleted files such as Hana, and may even release her from the confines of the cyber world.
- Hana will need a body to be placed into.

- Even with great control, if Hana is completely deleted, there would be no feasible way for anything to "restore" her.

Micah will discover Barbara and he'll try to contact her. None + It would be a way for Micah to come back in Season Four.

- Ali Larter is rumored to want out of the show.

+ Ali Larter stated that she's staying in the show. Those rumors about her leaving the show were made up by the press.
Micah will return in Volume 5 to punish Tracy. None + It would be a way for Micah to come back in Season Four.

+ Micah warned Tracy in Ice Queen, Part 1 that if she harmed any of Danko's agents he would do something. Tracy has killed four of Danko's agents.
- Tracy appears to have gone through a change of heart, and seems to want to help people now, even if Micah punishes her, maybe he'll not be as harsh, not after seeing what Tracy's current goals are.

Micah will not return in Volume 5. None + Even with Danko gone, he still must deal with Eric Thompson, Jr..
He doesn't need to deal with Thompson, Jr., since Micah made him world's most wanted criminal. (Rebellion, Part 5)

+ He has other priorities such as keeping New Orleans safe with his cousin Monica and dealing with other Primatech rogue agents and rogue specials.
