absorbed abilities

Hi, Miloman09. Thanks for your recent contributions, and welcome to Heroes Wiki! Just a note of clarification on abilities that are absorbed. For purposes on the wiki, we only list absorbed or stolen abilities when there is conclusive proof that the character has the ability. In most cases, that would be the character using the ability. In rarer cases, it would be the character specifically stating that he has used the ability. So in the case of, say, Peter absorbing his father's ability, we cannot make a definite statement about whether the ability was absorbed or not since Peter never used the ability and never said that he received the ability. Added to the fact that Peter came in contact with other abilities that he never used, and the case can be made that he does not absorb every ability he comes in contact with. I'm not sure that's necessarily the case here, but there is definitely reasonable doubt as to whether or not the ability was absorbed. Thanks for understanding! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:59, 27 February 2011 (EST)

  • Additionally, there is no proof that Sylar had the ability that Peter had, which we call empathic mimicry. He absorbed abilities empathically, but he didn't necessarily have Peter's ability. It's an odd distinction, I know, but necessary for listing who has which abilities. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:58, 27 February 2011 (EST)
