Mohinder says that the teenage patient can absorb electrical currents (Blackout, Part 2).

I'd just copy & paste in electromagnetism, edit out stuff about the agent, and change the image and the description. That should be a good enough start.--Hardvice (talk) 13:06, 16 November 2007 (EST)


Just out of curiosity, why do we keep specifying "electrostatic" energy? Electrostatic energy is electrical energy which is not flowing. Considering the kid is able to pull current (like from the power lines), simple "electrical energy" or "electricity" would probably be more accurate.--Hardvice (talk) 03:10, 19 November 2007 (EST)

Benjamin Franklin

are you sure he would have this ability? Because it seemed the kite conducted the electricity not him like the dying patient does. Debatable? I think so... --(. .') 04:42, 4 March 2008 (EST)

  • I think any difference in mechanics can and should be noted in the article. The novel particularly states that Ben absorbed enough electricity to kill a normal man, and released it through the cat. You're right, though, that Ben's ability was displayed as touch-based only whereas the teenage patient could absorb and release arcs of electricity through the air. I've updated the article to note this.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:53, 4 March 2008 (EST)
    • Yeah, It makes more sence now... --(. .') 05:02, 4 March 2008 (EST)

Heroes: The Game

Hey, if you're waiting for a Heroes Game on the Ps3 or X-Box, there is a game in which you can play as someone with this power, Infamous. I really want there to be a Heroes game. --mc_hammark 15:52, 6 November 2009 (EST)
