Favourite Mutant power

Post by Howlan »

These kids in the book show some really interesting mutant abilities. Adam controls wind or telekinesis, Carly has pyrokinesis, Rye can teleport and Val can literally chop things up. I really envied Rye for her power and character. So which of these powers fascinate you the most??

I liked Rye also, but the Wit line is coolest. The ability to merge is the best. You can ensure your future generations will be able to survive no matter what. Generations of knowledge passed on. 😄😄 Or controlling the wind to fly. Flying is also cool.

I agree with KDJ, passing along all of the information from previous generations seems like an incredibly useful power, and in a way it prevents its users from truly dying. It's a really interesting concept as well, and I really enjoyed that. Personally I would like to have Rye's power; I'd never have to worry about running late again, and I wouldn't have any more commute! It would be amazing.

I loved Rue.The passage of concepts across generations dispayed mutation as a very beautiful aspect.

I liked that Adam could harness the wind, levitate, and fly. Those powers seemed very handy to have. I also liked Rye's powers to teleport herself and others to any place. What a great way to escape bad situations.

All the powers they decipher are incredibly awesome. But I really like Adam's ability. What could be better than handling one of the nature's
strength? Pretty cool!

I liked all of the powers, but Adam's power of controlling the wind was my overall favorite. I think it was awesome he could fly!

Definitely Rye! But if I could invent one myself, I'd go for freezing the time. I remember myself dreaming about it when I was a kid. I still think I'd be cool.

Teleportation sounds epic. Never have to walk anywhere again. Sounds perfect.

Dauma's powers were the coolest to me. I really like the truth-seeing, all-seeing kind of powers. I wish there was a metamorphic one, like someone who could turn into other people or animals or something, I would love that one. But that would have to be one powerful person.

Exactly what I was thinking -- it's gotta be teleportation for me.

Yes, I can understand how you feel about flying. Humans always yearn to fly like a bird.
