Whats the difference between psionic and energy based constructs? Psionics is forming constructs with your mind, isn't that the same thing as Green Lantern's ability to create energy based constructs with willpower??

@fallen reptile:  well that's not really what psionics is. Although if somebody were able to produce constructs with just their mind, it would fall under the category of psionics along with telepathy and telekinesis.

yeah, I always wonder about that too

the term psionic seems to have such a broad scope of meanings and uses

like Dagger's powers are considered "psionic," right? But she doesn't create them mentally, she uses her body

it's always confused me just what the limitations of being "psionic" are
