Another recognizable power would be telepathy, which is the ability to read and influence the minds of others. Characters such as Professor X from Marvel Comics, Martian Manhunter from DC Comics, and Matt Parkman from Heroes could use this power. Compared to other powers, telepathy is a VERY diverse skill. You can not just read or control the minds of others, you can also create vivid illusions, communicate with someone mentally, or overwhelm another person’s mind with psychic energy until they either pass out or die. Like telekinesis, telepathy’s shortcomings are mental in nature due to being a mental power. For example, you may only be able to access one mind at a time, you may have limited mental strength to maintain the psychic connection, you may only be able to use one kind of telepathic power, and overusing it could lead to brain damage on the user.
