Push Showcases a Panoply of Telekinetic Powers
Posted 01.05.09 by reelz
Forget telepathy vs. telekinesis. Push gets into the details of telekinesis with an extensive menu of different powers that potentially trump and counter one another in a manner not too far off from Dungeons and Dragons. You have pushers, who can insert specific emotions and memories into their targets, movers who work with really tiny objects, even at the molecular level, watchers who have self-induced visions of the future, stitches who are basically psychic surgeons who can heal -- and unheal --, sniffs who work as psychic bloodhounds, shifters who create illusions by manipulating light, shadows who block clairvoyants and sniffs and, most entertainingly, bleeders. These guys are "unique to the Chinese government" and emit high-pitched sonic vibrations that rupture a target's blood vessels. The wild facial expression that goes along with it -- priceless. Check out a full layout of the telekinetic repertoire over at Superhero Hype.
