Pointlessness
Lyle Bennet.jpg
Lyle is a pointless character.
Originally held by: Lyle, Caitlin, Maya, West...
Absorbed by: Almost everyone in Volume Two.
Ability to: Intensely slow down the plot of any storyline.

Pointlessness is the ability to appear in an episode, graphic novel, scene, volume or cast and serve no defining purpose in the overall plot.

Characters

Confirmed

  • Lyle Bennet seems to possess this ability naturally.
  • Monica Dawson could have resisted this ability, but she ended up with it anyway.
  • Caitlin may have absorped this ability from Peter Petrelli when he lost his memory.
  • Maya Herrera's original power was perhaps too powerful to be frequently used in the show, therefore she unfortunately developed this ability until she was written off.

Possible

Examples

Notes

  • Also known as "Lyle Style."
  • Just because a character doesn't have a normal ability, don't assume that they are pointless. Examples of non-pointless characters are Ando and Noah Bennet, who are non-evolved but still drive the plotline.
  • Most characters with this ability do not last very long, as they are killed by Sylar (see Alejandro). However, Sylar does not seem to have taken this ability yet.
