It's been somewhat bugging me how most mutants with TK are able to use their abilities without much movement, and its been fairly well established that Hellion controlled his TK using his hands. So does anyone think now that he has lost them that this could possibly affect his powers? If he does get prosthetics (a la Karma) would they still work the same? We all know Hellions stance on mutants who have lost their powers, such as with David. I think it could be interesting to see such a contradiction with Hellion possibly losing his powers and see how the other half lives. What do you guys think?
Will his TK be affected?
Characters often pose to help them focus, but his hands weren't what controlled his TK. That was his mind; which is why telekenesis is classed as a psionic power & therefore how Emma Frost was able to telepathically boost his powers during Kyle & Yost's run on New X-Men.
I think it was also done for readers to get a better visual of what was going on, without drawing lines from his his forehead and expanding them so they form a shield. Emma Frost is a telepath, zero flash and sparkle when using her powers, but she'll close her eyes and touch her forehead so we get a sense of what's happening. If Emma were to ever find herself handless, she'd still be able to use her abilities.
My bet is he's going to be healed. There's Hope and Elixir, if he wakes up. The former is being hyped up to be this miracle worker, so I imagine she could do it; the latter hasn't been shown to regenerate limbs, but he did regrow David Alleyne's heart, and he's an Omega class mutant, so it's not out of the question yet (especially if the wounds are still relatively fresh). Should this not happen, I think Hellion will be able to work his TK just fine. All he did with his hands was channel it; the power is in his mind, and so he should be able to channel it through anything (ex. a prosthetic). He still has organic arms to lead the channel through.
maybe psi hands/blades like psylocke some kinda psi constructs as well as his tk ?, he is one of my fave characters so seeing him lose his hands really got me mad , plus his tk is green b4 that all i saw in comics tk was represented by a pink or purplelish aura
" I don't think it will affect his TK. "How will it not be affected? As has been stated, Julian's hands act as the focus points for his telekinesis (stated in New Mutants Vol 3); without them he is unable to channel his powers. If his hands are not regrown, and even if his hands are replaced by cybernetic prosthetics, Hellion will likely have to develop a new way of accessing/channelling his powers.
I think his TK will still shoot down his arms but when it comes out of his stumps/prosthetics it will be much less controlled, much like the drastic change in control that came with his power increase. Even if he somehow has his hands regrown I doubt he will have anywhere near his level of control, because I figure the issue will be a psychological issue.
He should already have new hands. Elixir has previously regrown a heart inside someones chest. I can't see how a limb below the elbow would be any more difficult.
Not doing it for Hellion or Karma is just a lame plot device on the part of the writers to have them overcome a disability. Lame.
I don't see why his TK would be affected. Sure, his hands were always the focus before, but that's all they were: a mental trick to make it more easy to use his powers. Even if he doesn't get prosthetics (a ridiculous idea, given that he's an X-man), he'd just have to learn to do it without them.

Hellion will get his hands back. If they give him prosthetics,it'll be just like anakin, and that would be laaaame. and I think it will be for a time. He's never been forced to find another way to channel his powers. He did in fact use his hands to channel his abilities, sort of like a guide for his powers. But, they don't originate from his hands. So, this might actually be a chance for him to improve once more with hsi control over his abilities.
