Life choice commericals
Hyper-Senses: superior (rank 2)
It's a little cliche by now, but it seems that a shadowy organization has been pulling string from behind the scenes. I guess I learned a little too much because now they want me dead.
Almost as cliche as the micro-bomb implanted in my skull that somehow remains inert due to the interference from television signals.
Something about the feedback and the electronic sensor being so close to my cerebral cortex might have done some damage back there. I guess I'm lucky I'm not blind or sitting on a bed somewhere drooling into a feed-tube.
As I stop on the sidewalk and look down the dirty alley the screen crackles to life with a cheerful announcement.
"Park! I don't think you wanna go down that alley and I'll show you why!"
I see myself in the third person walk past a group of homeless men and one of them reaches out to prick me with a syringe he had just pulled out of his arm.
The second the angle of my body shifts away from the entrance of the alley, the channel changes. The music has dulled to the standard drone of violin indicating a routine shift in scenes. I should be safely on my way home in a few minutes.
I've seen this one before
Tactician: superior (rank 2)
What, the guy walked into an Italian restaurant with some sunglasses and a guitar case? It doesn't take any special powers to know what's about to go down. I guess you could say I've got a knack for plot-lines and story mechanics.
I met another hero once and could tell right off the bat everything about him. He called himself "Bloodslay" and had replaced one of his arms with this multi-tool chainsaw/minigun thing.
"Sorry to hear about your parents!" I told him.
He was shocked that I knew they were dead and that he had lost his arm in the same tragic incident, swearing revenge against evil-doers in the process.
I told him to keep at it, "I'm mean you have a chainsaw for an arm... I think vigilante is your 'calling'!"
Elevator music dialogue
Inhibit Senses: standard (rank 1)
When I'm bored, I cause others to be bored. That's the only way to put it.
"I can save you 19% over a 3 year contract if you sign today, remember folks, this is a ONE TIME OFFER! Standard rates and fee are included where applicable, this offer not valid after the 31st of January or in the states of..."
See what I mean?
If I turn it up a notch people will actually become bored to the point of hypnosis by my mindless driveling. I can't tell you how many 'back-room interrogations' this little trick has gotten me though.
