His Powers

#1 Posted by SwingsetTragedy (92 posts) - - Show Bio

So how do his Powers exactly work , Does he absorb the powers Temporarily or is he just like Mimic when it comes to other powers B/c it says that in X-Man's (Nate Grey) story he and Mimic (Calvin Rankin) absorbed/Copied  X-man's powers and got a Glimpse of the Future that Nate Grey could see. I really need some one to clear this up for me Plz

I think he just absorbs other peoples powers. I think he also gets some of their memories and personality while he does that. Kinda like a guy Rouge.

I thought he absorbed ambient energy and could store it/ re-channel it into blasts?

I think he can naturally absorbed energy but if that energy has a mutant configuration it becomes addictive and he starts to get fragment of that other person in his mind

As the Collective, Michael Pointer was one of my favorite characters. But I am kind of confused by his powers now. I understand using mutant energy, to power his abilities of blasts and flight, but how does he take Wolverine's blades in the back and still be alive?

I thought his power was to absorb mutant energy and after the collective left his body, he still retained the ability of energy absorption/redistribution and flight.

I think he absorbs mutant energy like life force energy of a mutant of sorts, to power his energy production. Witch he uses to make blasts and fly and probably heal his wounds and injures.

I thought his powers were to Troll Alpha Flight fans? lol 
 
But yea, I agree with those who say he absorbs energy, energies, and then he basically converts that to use to power himself up, in strength and durability, sort, of like as he was as the Collective, but, that was a lot of mutant energy power. Now he is limited by his access to it and he probably needs to store it too. So he is basically a character whose power can fluctuate to suit the story or writer.
