Theory: If Everyone Had A Power

4 posts in this topic

What if everyone received powers from Calamity, but some people got more obvious and physical powers, while others got powers so minor that it was not noticeable. For example, with Curveball, with his power being infinite bullets, if someone else received the exact power, but never fired a gun, it would appear that they did not have any powers even though they were a minor epic.

Most noticalbe point against this is that Epics can't gift to other Epics, so if everyone is an Epic gifting shouldn't work at all, plus the nightmares make that rather unlikely.

Good point. This brings a question to mind about gifting. For instance, when Phaedrus gifts his healing abilities to David at the end of Firefight, as David becomes more and more injured, the healing comes less gradually to him. So, when gifting, is it like presenting an entrance to a reservoir of power, and once you use it, it's gone? Or is it giving a portion of power away? In Steelheart, at the battle of Soldier Field, when David uses the tenser on the bullet, he says i'ts harder to make the song because Phaedrus is using so much of that power fighting Steelheart. 

 

Edit: Has anyone else noticed how using the tensers is very similar to Soulcasting from WOK?

It seems to be a limited amount of power that gradually diminishes. At Soldier Field, David couldn't use the Tenser because Prof had only given him a small amount because he needed as much as possible.
