Taxi License

Just making this no longer blank, since Talk:Mohinder needs to redirect here.--Hardvice (talk) 16:06, 1 December 2006 (EST)

OK, I just added a link to Mohinder's license, and the thought occurred to me. In 1.5 days, Mohinder manages to get a cab-driver's license. Isn't that rather fast for a guy who just marched in from India without any preparation? Cuardin 16:33, 10 January 2007 (EST)

  • Since he would presumably need a chauffeur's license, and not just an ordinary driver's license, this is especially strange. I presume that the US honors regular driver's licenses from at least some other countries, allowing foreign tourists and the like to rent cars while in the states. Such a license should not, however, allow someone to drive strangers or cargo in a business capacity, though. --Ted C 16:42, 10 January 2007 (EST)

For my own sake (feel free to delete), here is a timeline of the "3 days"

  • 3 days ago: Midday, Mohinder gets the message his father is dead. During the day he decides to go to New York. We assume he goes to the airport and with a stand-by-tiket, manages to get on the evening flight to Europe.
  • 2 days ago: With 1 part luck and 2 parts time-difference, Mohinder arrives at JFK before noon this day. I did a check and this is possible. Mohinder applies for a taxi driver's license.
  • Today / 1 day ago: Mohinder gets the license and a job as a taxi driver. Main timeline of Genesis begins sometime Midday today.

Cuardin 16:33, 10 January 2007 (EST)

  • Check out the requirements on the NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission website. It's not only unlikely, it's nigh-impossible. I suppose if Mohinder had been a student here, and held a job while he was studying, he could have the SS card, a US photo id, and proof of address (outdated proof of address, but still), but it's pretty unlikely he'd have had a chauffeur's license unless he was driving a taxi the first (hypothetical) time he was in the U.S. It's more likely that the license is forged; the cab boss did say she needed drivers in a hurry, so maybe they just doctored Chandra's license. Or maybe the writers just blew it for the sake of moving the story along. Great catch, though.--Hardvice (talk) 17:51, 10 January 2007 (EST)
    • Wouldn't be the first time something of the sort happened (in both the corruption and story-telling senses). --Ted C 18:00, 10 January 2007 (EST)
    • Do we have previous indication that Mohinder has studied in the US? Mohinder is rather fluent in English. OK, it is an American show, but let's do this entirely in-world. Mohinder has gone through some fairly lengthy schooling, and it is even probable, that he has been abroad for at least a year. Together with the taxi-license, there is some weight to that theory, don't you think? Cuardin 10:12, 12 January 2007 (EST)
      • What I "love" about the languages on Heroes is that they speak Japanese in Japan, but English in India. Hmmm.

        There's no indication that he studied in the US. He is obviously educated (heck, he's a professor), but no indication that he studied in the US whatsoever. In fact, his accent is quite British (which is common for Indians, since English actually is a national language, and the country was ruled by Great Britain until 1947, IIRC). Cool theory, a bit of weight to it, but nothing factual unfortunately. :) - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:24, 11 January 2007 (EST)

        • IRL, around me, it is very uncommon that someone reach the level of "professor" (I doubt he is a professor at the age of 35, probably an associate professor) without having studied at least some time abroad. But of course what I really believe is that the writers completely fudged up because that is what writers do, all the time. (Hi, Orne. Fixed it now :P) Cuardin 10:12, 12 January 2007 (EST)


  • Why is NBc calling Mohinder by his last name now? Heroe 18:07, 27 January 2007 (EST)

Parasite

Did Mohinder die? --Xmuskrat 09:16, 6 March 2007 (EST)

  • He was still alive when Peter showed up: he managed to whisper "Sylar!" to Peter. --Ted C 10:10, 6 March 2007 (EST)
  • I think Sylar needs to keep him alive long enough to create the new version of the list. Although, if Sylar is some kind of intuitive genius, I wonder why he needs Mohinder for that purpose. --ZyberGoat 13:25, 8 March 2007 (EST)

Age?

His mom said he was 2 when Shanti died. But then in The Hard Part, it seemed like she died a few months before he was born. So what gives? Was his mom just lying so he wouldn't realize he was just concieved for his magic blood?--Leshia 22:55, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

  • It's possible that Shanti was younger in that picture. Heroe!(talk) (contribs) Random Page! 22:58, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
  • That is odd. Mohinder's statement that he was born too late to help his sister does indeed make it seem like he was born after she died, which doesn't jive with Mrs. Suresh's statement. (While we're on the subject of Mohinder's age, it might not hurt to consider that Thompson never says Shanti died in 1974--he says there was "one other case--and Indian girl in 1974". This might well mean she died in 1974, but it might also mean she got sick, or her illness was identified, in 1974, and she died later.) Both the discrepancy and the possibility that Shanti's death occurred later are probably worth noting.--Hardvice (talk) 13:30, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
    • Considering the Sureshs have not always had the motto of truth first. And considering we've apparently seen than 1974 picture of her, my guess is Mohinder's age should be more accurately 32 than 34. --Harlequin 16:19, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
      • Well, we know he's at least 32, and I agree that the information we have from The Hard Part suggests that he was actually born a few months after Shanti died. We don't know how long it took her illness to kill her, but it was apparently long enough for Chandra to do enough research to realize that another child might provide the antibodies need to fight the virus. The "Shanti became ill in 1974" explanation seems to provide the fewest continuity problems. --Ted C 16:27, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

Cure to The Shanti Virus

Like Alejandro's power is an ability to negate the effects of his sister's ability, could Mohinder's be the ability to cure the Shanti Virus? It would fit with the paradigm of siblings having powers (i.e. Alejandro y Maya and the Petrelli brothers). It would also fit the paradigm of one sibling being the yin to the other sibling's yang. --Snow Leapord 14:09, 2 October 2007 (EDT)

  • See Theory:Mohinder Suresh. I have the same feeling. --Pinkkeith 14:13, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
  • We're going to have to wait to see for certain, but I suspect the cure was Chandra's doing. I suspect he either developed a cure and innoculated Mohinder to be safe or he manipulated Mohinder's code so he'd produce the antibodies to cure the disease. I'm leaning towards the latter. It's similar to how in some cases we alter the genetic code of bacteria to reprogram them to produce chemicals like HGH or at a more macroscopic level the way we alter mice to grow human ears on their backs. (Admin 14:18, 2 October 2007 (EDT))
    • It's been pretty well-established in sources outside the show that Mohinder does not (and will not) have any evolved powers. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:34, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
      • Yeah... I'm just curious to see if he happened to innoculate Mohinder or if he was just using him as a growth medium. :) (Admin 14:44, 2 October 2007 (EDT))
  • Alternatively, If Mohinder's ability to cure the Shanti virus is just healthy antibodies as stated in The Hard Part, isn't that deserving of a listing amongst his "equipment" alongside a tuning fork? I'm tempted to put "Ph.D." in the list too. After all, "Knowing is half the battle!"--NissanVersaDootDoot 18:00, 5 October 2007 (EDT)
  • I think maybe, Mohinder has an ability, but he just has not discovered it yet. He can cure the virus with his own blood, maybe Chandra put something in his blood along with the cure that prevents him from discovering it until he has cured a certain number of people? Or until a certain time. Unlikely, but hey, its Heroes! Dean Harper 22:40, 5 October 2007 (EDT)
  • I have read that to Ryangibsonstewart, but many other shows have made similar claims and then went back on it. Smallville was no flight no tights but they have had Clark fly of his own power before. It wouldn't be unprecedented for them to be adamant that a claim will never ever happen in a million years but then go do it later on. --Snow Leapord 07:03, 9 October 2007 (EDT)

French

For thoose interested, Mohinder speaks an hesitating but grammaticaly perfect French. Here is the transcript :

"Je m'appelle Mohinder Suresh, je suis médecin.

Il est possible que vous ayez un virus très rare, c'est pour ca que je suis venu. Je peux peut-être vous aider. Vous donner un remède."

- Mohinder to the Haitian.

-- Frenchflo.gif (talk) 06:54, 4 October 2007 (EDT)

  • "My name is Mohinder Suresh, I'm a doctor." / "It is possible that you've got a rare virus, this is why I came here. Maybe I can help you. I give you a remedy." Was that right? :D --BloodyFox 16:53, 26. November 2007 (CEST)
    • Close. He says, "My name is Mohinder Suresh. I'm a doctor." / "There's a possibility you have a very rare virus. That's why I've come. I may be able to help. Give you a cure." The subtitles are in yellow at the bottom of the screen. You can check the transcript, too. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:00, 26 November 2007 (EST)
      • I know the subtitles. But "il est possible" means "it is possible", not "there's a possibility". The subtitles sometimes just translate with other words, to keep them short and fast to read before the next part pops up. I'm pretty sure what I wrote is closer to the original text, than the actual subtitles. Well, but I have to admit, that I've forgot to translate "trés" --> "It is possible that you've got a very rare virus, ..." --BloodyFox 17:27, 26. November 2007 (CEST)

Occupation

Should we add "Geneticist (The Company)" or "Agent (The Company)" or something? He's obviously receiving some kid of remuneration in his role as double agent. --NissanVersaDootDoot 10:06, 9 October 2007 (EDT)

He does have powers!

Since his blood is the cure for the virus, wouldnt that be considered a power? It seems like a power. He can save lives with it.Nick Petrelli 21:05, 4 December 2007 (EST)

  • No more than my blood being able to help someone when given in a blood transfusion. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:14, 4 December 2007 (EST)
    • Not quite. His blood can cure people who have a virus. Its like if someones blood can be used for curing cancerNick Petrelli 17:25, 7 December 2007 (EST)
      • His blood can be used because it contains antibodies against the Shanti virus, presumably because his older sister had the illness. Your blood contains antibodies against all sorts of diseases to which you've been exposed. He tells Molly, effectively, that he has the antibodies because Shanti was born sick, causing his mother to pass antibodies on to her next child. It's not a power.--Hardvice (talk) 18:41, 7 December 2007 (EST)
        • Doesn't the Shanti virus (the unmutated form) only effect humans with powers, rendering them powerless? (And, of course, killing them in time.) If that is the case, then the antibodies for such a virus could be understood as a "power" because there is no reason a "normal" human would have these antibodies for a disease that cannot hurt them. There is no reason that Mohinder would have these antibodies except for a unique trait that his parents (the parents of a "special" girl) passed down to him. This trait is absolutely nonsensical in the general population. It's like me having the antibodies for feline leukemia--the disease cannot affect me, so why should I need the antibodies? (The only reason I would carry the antibodies for feline leukemia is a freak, astronomically rare mutation of some sort.) In fact, Mohinder MUST be a mutant or the child of a mutant in order to carry these antibodies. Food for thought.--Mtundu 02:08, 13 January 2009 (EST)

Artifical powers

I belive a new section is needed for the character template for artificaly given powers. Future Ando and Mohinder can't use the same space as those with true ablities, now can they? --Piemanmoo 02:39, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

  • I agree, a new section is warranted, much like the "Evolved Human Abilities" section. I wouldn't call it that, since Mohinder isn't an evolved human. Something simple like "Evolved Abilities" would suffice. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 02:47, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
    • Unless the formula is what started the current batch of heroes and they are all artificial. Andrei 02:48, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
      • I think artificial abilities could work.--Skywalkerrbf 02:50, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
        • The ability isn't artificial. The means by which he obtained the power is artificial. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 04:13, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
          • I agree with not calling the new abilities artificial. That would include people who have bionics, which these people don't appear to have. Imho, these new abilities don't need a separate classification as they are not really given but brought out. The formula Mohinder made brings to fruition an ability which is different for each person based on the genetics a person already has.
            The way I understand it, Mohinder has discovered that many people have evolved the capacity to exert one or more innate special abilities, and his formula just allows a person access to those abilities earlier than they normally would. Thus, the abilities are still evolved human abilities and Mohinder is now an evolved human, and always has been. We don't have any proof that Mohinder and Ando couldn't have evolved their abilities without the formula. This is kind of like giving someone testosterone to induce puberty earlier than normal; said person may have still gone into puberty as the genes to do so are there.
            Ouch, sorry for the long explanation but I just wanted to get out how I interpreted things.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:47, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
  • I'd call these "Induced abilities." Apparently, abilites are latent in everyone, it just takes certain genes or, in Mohinder's case, a little gene therapy to activate them. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 10:42, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Mohinder's power's name

Mohinder does not have enhanced strength--he was able to crawl up a wall, he has scaly things growing on his back, and we learn that he becomes gooey. Greg Beeman says "Suresh displays his new 'bug-like' powers". He also says "Suresh was to bug-crawl up the wall" and "The writers gave us [some info] about where this bug power was going." I'm not suggesting any of those are good names (though something with "bug" or "insect" would in the title is probably a good idea), but I am suggesting--nay, insisting--that Mohinder does not have the same power Niki does. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 04:17, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

  • I propose just calling it Mohinder's power until a more appropriate name arises. Or Mohinder's artificial power. --Piemanmoo 04:19, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
    • There are way too many questions about what he has done to himself to pin it down, yet. Mohinder's ability will have to do for the present. I personally suspect that his power will be either temporary or constantly changing, since it's imposed rather than natural. He may need the Formula to stabilize himself. --Ted C 14:30, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
    • I suggest just Mohinder's ability for now... it's not artificial, just drug-induced.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:47, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
    • As a side note, I hope they don't call his ability "insection" :P If it is bug-like powers, I think insect mimicry would be appropriate. Also, he doesn't become gooey; portions of his skin are peeling off... he could be molting like a type of lizard. If he used ingredients from Mohinder the lizard, it could be lizard mimicry instead... we're going to have to wait and see on this one so I think "Mohinder's ability" is fine for now.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:56, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
      • Isn't he seen drinking a lot of milk the morning after? Milk is a source of calcium, which is a major component of insect carapaces/exoskeletons.--Kidsafe 06:11, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
        • That works for lizards too.--MiamiVolts (talk) 06:21, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
          • I'm pretty sure Greg Beeman and the writers wouldn't have used the word "bug" numerous times if Mohinder were more like a lizard. I'm sure his power has something to do with being a bug or an insect, not a reptile. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:25, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
          • I think another facet of his bug power is becoming really horny all of a sudden. Jumping Maya like that was kind of out-of-character for normal Mohinder. Rfresa
            • To some people, lizards are considered pests/bugs. I wouldn't be so quick to make that assumption, and would rather wait till we can distinguish the ability more clearly before naming it.--MiamiVolts (talk) 06:29, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
              • I agree, I don't think we should decided on a name just yet. The point of my original post was to share what Beeman said as well as to refute any ideas that Suresh has enhanced strength. But I think we should certainly not plant ideas that his power has something to do with lizards (especially under the falsehood of a lizard being a bug) when lizards don't climb walls the way Mohinder did, and clearly the writers are going for something entirely different. Suggesting Mohinder resembles a lizard is misleading and speculative at best. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:42, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
                • Many lizards can and do climb walls the way Mohinder did, and pester and bug are synonyms. Check out the links. Now, I didn't mean to suggest that insect or lizard mimicry were the only possibilities: it could also be a spider mimicry or worm mimicry, or a number of other things. Scientifically, bugs are normally invertebrates only, but we don't know what Beeman meant--he could have meant the term as slang, and thus we shouldn't be jumping to a conclusion yet (not even to rule out lizards). That's the point I'm trying to make.--MiamiVolts (talk) 07:46, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
                  • Maybe it should be spidrokinesis. :) Chrisyu357 10:51, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
                    • I believe you mean arachnokinesis. --Yamawhata? 17:05, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
                      • What I gleaned from the presentation of his power was that he was more like an insect or a spider or something. The music, if you noticed, had a more bug-like sound to it. And I don't see "bug" as being used to describe lizard powers. Yes, lizards could be considered pests to some people, but when people say bug, they usually mean bug or insect.Oh, and if you noticed, there was also some sort of spider or bug crawling in Mohinder the Lizard's cage when Mohinder (the human) stuck his hand inside. I agree, though, that it should be called "Mohinder's power" for now. User:Mask-o 4:05, 23
                      • Could this be following the cockroach theme that heroes had from start? User:LordMalekal 7:37, 23
                        • Not to complain about my favorite show, but it kinda seems like Mohinders powers are a major rip from "The Fly" and X-Mens Beast. Scientist experimenting, got powers, something goes wrong altering his body. So far seems more "The Fly" based off his personality changes but we'll see. [ U | T |
  • Looks like the Heroes writers are pulling a Kafka on us. ;) --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 20:42, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
  • Enhanced testosterone. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 21:02, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
      • Ok, I'm not even going to attempt to address everything, but just from seeing various "kinesis"es, I'm going to say this is out of hand, and doesn't remotely follow our naming convention. There's no evidence as to what his ability is aside from what is currently described. There's nothing to describe it accurately until further details are/will be revealed. Until then, I don't see the need to debate because it's obvious everyone has their own theory as to what Mohinder can/can't do, even though it has yet to be shown on television. Just sit back and wait a week or two until we get something further on this. Aside from all of what I've just said, this discussion should be held on Mohinder's ability, and no this page. This page is with regards to just Mohinder.--Bob (talk) 06:43, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
        • Because we call Alejandro’s ability Alejandro’s Power, I see no problem with leaving Mohinder’s ability Mohinder’s Power. However, it has been confirmed in various interviews that it is in fact, a “bug power” of some sort. Of course we get into dangerous territory when we classify it as an insect or bug power, because not all invertebrates we consider to be bugs are not true bugs. --Mohinder613 14:34, 18 December 2008 (EST)

Drug Dealer

Why did Mohinder kidnap a random drug dealer? Is this related to Micah?

  • I think we're supposed to assume that he kidnapped the drug dealer for the same purpose that he kidnapped his neighbor (Mark Spatney). What exactly that purpose IS remains to be seen. --Aburu 21:34, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
  • I think he needed test subjects and he chose them from "bad peoples" to not feel sorry about them --Hellknight 21:25, 29 October 2008 (EDT)
  • I'm more interested in finding out how he managed to drag a body dripping blood across lower Manhattan to his loft without being noticed. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 21:29, 29 October 2008 (EDT)
    • Curious. A person would need super strength and the skill to run fast/jump very high to do that. Oh wait...--Citizen 21:31, 29 October 2008 (EDT)
      • Like I said, without being seen. Surely he couldn't have jumped all the way from that park to his loft in one bound... and from what we've seen of Mohinder's jumping abilities, the relative range that he can jump is still quite visible to humans. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 21:33, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

Dual Summary

Does it really need to be so long..? Needs some choppin' down, I think.--Crazylicious 13:49, 19 December 2008 (EST)

  • I'm sorry if this contradicts with any rules for Heroes wiki, but in my opinion, articles can never be too long. If someone comes to this site, it is probably because they’re either an obsessed fan, or they are looking for something. I think that we are in danger of not giving enough facts on an article more than giving too much information. Forgive me if I’m incorrect. Mohinder613 (my talk page) 22:21, 23 December 2008 (EST)
    • Though brevity can be nice much of the time, I generally tend to agree with you. (Not about the Dual summary--on that, I don't really have much of an opinion.) I agree that if we err, we should generally err on the side of giving too much information. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:38, 24 December 2008 (EST)

Cured Abilities

Since he no longer has those scales and such is it assumable that he wouldn't be able to wall crawl anymore because he's no longer got the side effects? And that perhaps now his power is simply being "Superhuman" in the sense of having enhanced strength, hearing, sight and agility. Course I realize we won't know for sure until the next few eps, but the bug qualities do seem to be gone.. ViciousKillgasm 07:59, 21 December 2008

  • You're right: we should wait until the next few episodes air to change his ability's status. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:27, 21 December 2008 (EST)

Mohinder vs. Suresh

When talking about Mohinder Suresh, I call him by his first name. I notice that we do this here also. However, do the scripts call him “Suresh?” I haven’t got a hold of any transcripts, but I do know that most of the time the writers and even Sendhil Ramamurthy call Mohinder, “Suresh.” I’m not suggesting changing our entire article, and maybe this is just for my curiosity’s sake. The scripts call Noah, “HRG,” but that doesn’t mean we should start addressing him on this site as an abbreviation of “horn rimmed glasses.” I’m sorry if this is completely irrelevant, but I thought it might come in handy to know for future reference. Mohinder613 (my talk page) 16:00, 8 January 2009 (EST)

  • More importantly, he's referred to as both names in dialogue in the episodes. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 02:40, 10 January 2009 (EST)


Help improve Mutation page

  • Can you guys help improve the Mutation page? Im kinda stuffed right now, Agh! Courseworks and essays! XP

--NiveKJ13 (talk2me) 17:23, 11 January 2009 (EST)

A Mutation IS a Power--Right?

Mohinder's antibodies for the Shanti virus is a mutation or the inheritance of a mutation. Follow the reasoning: He carries antibodies for a disease which has no effect whatsoever on the general population. (Remember, the Shanti virus didn't mutate in the current active timeline.) Why would a normal human have antibodies for a disease that has no negative effect? There is no reason he would carry these antibodies other than a freakishly rare mutation or the inheritance of a freakishly rare mutation. This mutation gives Suresh a specialized "ability." Under this line of reasoning, we might also say that Mohinder Suresh is an evolved human possessing a "power" by the commonly held definition.--Mtundu 02:23, 13 January 2009 (EST)

  • I’m sorry, but if I’m following what you’re saying correctly, I don’t think this is accurate. Tim Kring has debunked any theories that Mohinder’s antibodies are an ability of some sort. Tim said that we can chalk the cure for the Shanti virus up to ordinary science. --Mohinder613 (my talk page) 16:35, 20 January 2009 (EST)

Plot Hole?

At the end of the last volume Mohinder claims that the infection is spreading to his lungs and he is about to die. But in I Am Become Death Peter travels four years into the future to find Mohinder in his lab, alive and well, though mutated to an inhuman state. If Mohinder's infection was really about to kill him, how did he survive until the future seen in I Am Become Death? Wouldn't he have died long ago? Leyviur 2:45, 2/14/2009

He "felt" as if he was going to die. This was probably a side effect of the mutation into his state four years later. Dean 14:57, 14 February 2009 (EST)
  • Who knows, maybe something happened to prevent elements of the exposed future from coming true earlier than we thought. However, either way I suppose Mohinder's mutations would progress at the same rate no matter what happened. I think I agree that Mohinder felt that he was dying even in I Am Become Death, although in reality he may not have been actually dying. (Or at least, he was slowly dying) --Mohinder613 (my talk page) 12:30, 16 February 2009 (EST)
    • Could have been that his body was going through a metamorphosis, throwing away his lungs because they would not be needed in the (very much alive) form he was to take afterward. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 13:35, 3 March 2009 (EST)

The race to 50...

As of episode 3.17, Mohinder has 49 credited appearances. That's more than any other cast member! (Of course, the reason being: they credit him when he gives the narration, even if he's not in the episode.) I was looking forward to 3.18 being his 50th appearance, however; he was not in the episode, neither did he give the narration. This means that Claire--the runner up--now has 48 appearances. If Mohinder is not in episode 3.19, he will be tied with Claire at number 50 in 3.20. (That is, unless Hayden isn't in one of the episodes.) Oh well, Hayden rocks too; I just like to root for Sendhil. --Mohinder613 (my talk page) 12:33, 3 March 2009 (EST)

  • The race is over and Mohinder has won! Even though he did not appear in 3.19, he was credited as usual, because he gave the narration. 50 appearances. That's quite an accomplishment. --Mohinder613 (my talk page) 11:57, 10 March 2009 (EDT)

Better Late Than Never

Did anyone notice that in the exposed future Mohinder was still mutated, although the formula was complete and given to everyone in the world? What, Arthur couldn't spare an injection for his most important scientist?--Altes 13:47, 5 March 2009 (EST)

lightening bolt

How did he survive that lightening bolt from alice? i mean that is surely impossible? Crazytom112 16:41, 27 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Maybe the many taser darts he was shot with so far made him stronger? Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 18:41, 27 April 2009 (EDT)
    • Well, you know, his power may not be just enhanced strength, it looks like it goes with enhanced toughness of a sort. Mohinder is definitely tougher than Niki and Knox, if he took so many taser darts and a lightning bolt. -- Altes 02:15, 7 May 2009 (EDT)
      • Abilities set aside, Mohinder does look tougher than Niki and Knox. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 17:52, 7 May 2009 (EDT)
        • But at the same time he wasn't able to break out of a steel bar that one of the other enhanced strength users would have easily done.

Mohinder's current ability

So I just bought the Heroes Revealed book, which documents the Heroes universe from season one all the way up to A Clear and Present Danger, and in it I saw something interesting. It lists Mohinder's current ability, after the who fly thing was reversed by the formula, as enhanced senses, not just superhuman strength like we have it listed on this page. So since the book is official should we change his ability listing to enhanced senses.

Also it has Charles' ability listed as "something to do with dreams" I'm guessing since it came out before the episode 1961. Since telepathy does have something to do with dreams, this is in my opinion, proof that the dream Peter had in the season one finale was Charles' doing. What do you think?--Cairoi 10:30, 30 April 2009 (EDT)

  • They confirmed that the dream ability Peter had belonged to Angela. Not sure if the book comes from writers or anyone affiliated with NBC, but it appears to give information that contradicts info writers gave us in BTE so far. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 13:56, 30 April 2009 (EDT)
    • No the book is official, it even has a froward by Tim Kring. It says Angela's power is Precognitive Dreaming, that's not what I am talking about though. The only reason that it didn't list Charles' power as Telepathy was that 1961 hadn't aired yet when the book came out, it just gave the hit his power had something to do with dreams which telepathy does. My question was, should we list Mohinder's power as enhanced senses, since that is what it is in the book. So should we?--Cairoi 22:21, 30 April 2009 (EDT)
    • Even if it's not official, I'd say the book is right. Mohinder seems to do things a bit differently from others with enhanced strength.
      • Mohinder has shown nothing other than enhanced strength, enhanced senses would mean he had Dale's ability, Donna's ability, and the tactile, olfactory and taste related equivalents. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 16:27, 3 May 2009 (EDT)

As a side note, Donna's ability isn't exactly enhanced vision. Enhanced vision would be a little bit more, i.e. 20/20 vision and one's eyes being capable of functioning in brighter-than-normal environments. And "taste-related" is "gustatory." :)--ERROR 21:57, 17 June 2009 (EDT)

  • She can see from great distances, she can see in the dark and she can see things small enough the normal human eye can't, if that's not enhanced, I don't know what is. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 18:04, 18 June 2009 (EDT)
