@jedixman: I do too. A prequel would be great. Its implied that Kessler has most or all of cole powers pertaining to his original power set ( electrokinesis and electromagnetism) and more than we got glimpse of during his fight with cole. he had like 90 years to develop his abilities so I would love to see what he was capable of in his prime. Cole on the other hand had new abilities added to his genetic template( pyrokinesis or cryokinesis) so his potential is even greater than kesslers, assuming Kessler didn't add foreign genetics to his own.
they are pretty loose on the rules another definition of a prime conduit could be one that is much more powerful than the majority of its peers. I would love to see other conduits exposed to blast cores.
