Nathan flies for the first time

First mentioned: Genesis

In various points throughout the televised episodes, graphic novels and webisodes, the first occurrences of abilities, from the point of view of the characters, are shown, mentioned or painted. While it seems this is usually triggered by eclipses, this doesn't always apply, particularly in synthetic cases. This is a list detailing them.

Memorable Quotes

"This morning, when I got out of bed, my foot hovered before it hit the ground, hovered for a split second. Like I was like I was floating. I'm telling you, I think I can fly."

- Peter, to Nathan (Genesis)


  • Not every evolved human has shown an on screen manifestation, but it seems generally that abilities arrive during an eclipse, puberty, or during a particularly emotional moment.
  • For Evolved Humans that can mimic, replicate, or steal, some would consider each time they use a new ability for the first time a manifestation.


  • As mentioned before, many characters abilities have manifested in moments of extreme emotion, be it anger, frustration or fear.
  • In many deleted scenes, characters are shown manifesting their abilities earlier, for example, one for Six Months Ago shows Matt hearing Janice's thoughts. However, deleted scenes are not considered canon, due to many contradicting future episodes.
