SUPERPOWER MIMICRY VARIANTS

sylar_empathy

As I mentioned in some of my previous posts, one of my favorite superhuman powers is empathic mimicry, which is the ability to copy the powers of others by forming an emotional connection with them. However, I realized that there are two variants of this ability. One version is when the user just copies the powers, but does not know how to use or process them until much later. The other version is when the user copies the powers and has a form of intuition that allows them to instinctively know how to process and use the power instantly, which saves time. I am thinking of including a character who possesses one of these variants in the sequel series of The Young Guardians Saga, but I am having trouble choosing which one. Which do you think would provide an engaging story and provide realistic character development? Please post your opinions. Thank you.

Great news! Archaeologists have found the remains of what could be the Dark Age kingdom of Rheged, which was mentioned in Arthurian Legend and was influential in medieval poetry. Because my fantasy book is drawing inspiration from elements of Arthurian Legend, I might explore this discovery and see if there is anything worthwhile to use in my writing process.
