Previous Post

    Nathan - Immortality, you can be killed, but you will be resurrected. The gap appeared to get smaller with each attempt. He survived a gunshot to the brain, metal spikes through his body etc. Unsure if this also retards aging. It recovers all injuries, when the user dies. In addition, the user can see and communicate with ghosts for up to 24 hours of their deaths and interact with them.

As discussed in a previous thread, this would eventually become a curse. Once the sun goes supernova and the Earth is dead and gone, you'd be left to die over and over again in the cold of space for eternity.

    Curtis - time travel (to the past). Based on regret, so every time you really regret something you get a chance to rewind time. Can't do it consciously. Also, if you regret something then you may well keep going back (such as trying to break up with a girlfriend). Can work as a defense mechanism, say if someone runs in, kills your mate and then goes for you. Not if the attack is unexpected. It works by going into your body, so limited to your actions.

The inability to control this power makes it less appealing. Otherwise it would be #1.

    Kelly - telepathy (receiver). Can't transmit thoughts, mind control, hypnosis or anything else.

I'm assuming the telepathy only works on people around you and not on anyone anywhere? That makes it much less useful.

    Aisha - sexual touch - doesn't matter about gender or sexuality. A touch will make the recipient feel insanely in lust with you. No control over it.

Embarrassingly, this is probably #1 though it would be easy to abuse.

    Simon - invisability, also makes the recipient inaudiable. It works by making people not conscious of him, not true invisability.

Eh, with so many security cameras around today, this power is much less useful.

The telepathy appeared to relate to one person at a time, was often unbidden and picked up on stray thoughts.

It had a range I think of about 30 feet, I don't recall there being any further distance. However, it could read babies, animals (presumably by also, translating their thoughts into english or whatever the user's native language is) so a little bit more varied, than first thought of.
