The following fan theories are about Alejandro's ability.
For help on adding theories, see the help section.
|Alejandro's ability is to reverse the effects of other abilities as well as protect Alejandro himself from those other abilities.||Alejandro manages to protect himself from the deadly side effects of Maya's ability as well as revive Nidia. (Lizards)|| • So far, he has only been exposed to the effects of Maya's powers. The curandera used her power (if she truly has one) only on Maya, and Alejandro did not exert himself to stop it.|
|Alejandro has the same ability as his twin sister Maya.||We have only seen him reversing the effects of the poison due to the fact he has never really experienced the same rage/emotions as Maya did. He did feel anger towards Sylar but not enough to emit the poison himself. Also his ability could be linked to different emotions.|| + Maya and Alejandro are twins, so they could have the same genetic make-up when it comes to their ability.|
+ If it's the same ability, it would be consistent with the emotional condition of the use of the power. All the times that Maya used her power she was under great stress and angry, Alejandro was calming her down and keeping himself calm, after Maya learn from Sylar to control her power she appears to try to stay calm to negate the effects.
|Alejandro has the power to absorb diseases or foreign contaminants like poisons into his body and destroy them with a powerful immune system.||Alejandro makes the black tears disappear from Maya and Nidia. (Lizards)|| + When he uses his ability, the blackness in Maya's tears disappears, leaving clear tears behind. Since Alejandro's eyes blacken, this could mean that the black substance enters his body.|
• This might only work with Maya's ability.
|Alejandro's ability is limited to curing the effects of Maya's ability.||None.|| + Mohinder states that when one sibling has a disease, the antibodies of another sibling can be used to cure it.|
- It is unlikely for someone to evolve with a defense from a specific virus that is otherwise non-existent in the environment.
- Mohinder was referring to normal diseases, not ones induced by an ability.
|Alejandro's ability is simply healing, like Linderman.||None.|| + Several characters this season have shared powers with a previous character (West, Maury, Adam).|
- Linderman's eyes did not turn black when he used his healing power.
- Alejandro hasn't been shown to heal anything other than those affected by Maya's ability (through healing Maya).
|Alejandro's ability and Maya's ability are the same, but Maya gained the "inflicting" aspect first, just as Alejandro gained the "absorbing" aspect first.||None.|| + Maya was able to develop Alejandro's power after first gaining control over her ability.|
|Alejandro's only ability is that he is immune to Maya's. It is stopped when he is near because he calms Maya down.||None.|| + When Maya explains to Mohinder how she stops using her ability, she says she just calms down.|
|Alejandro's ability is a weaker form of Arthur's power absorption.||None.|| + Alejandro's ability seems to require physical contact.|
+ After taking Maya's ability, Arthur explains "I take it all. I leave nothing behind." This implies the possibility of "leaving something behind" that he could, but does not do. Alejandro may be using the same ability, but he does not know how to "take it all" or really understand his ability at all.
