Telepathy: The ability to transfer information from one mind to another and to read minds and thoughts to humans and animals without the aid of physical communication (noise or movement).

Telepathy can be utilized in a number of ways, including, but certainly not limited to, the following:

  • Telepathic Defense: Telepathy can manifest in a number of defensive ways.
    • Cloak Mind: The ability to rearrange the mental engrams of New Mutants so their distinctive New Mutant thought patterns cannot be detected by Cerebro-type devices or by other Telepaths.
    • Psionic Shield: The ability to erect a psychic shield for protection of himself/herself and other minds.
    • Psychic Shadow: The ability to mask oneself, and other people's presence, from those within a certain are. A Telepath can also disguise themself, making their appearance similar to that of a shadow.
    • Telepathic Cloak: The ability to Telepathically mask one's presence and the use of his/her abilities from being detected by other Mutants and Psychic Entities. These defenses can be extended to others around them as well. Cloaking via telepathy is not perfect and powerful Telepathic Mutants may notice and 'see' through this ability.
  • Telepathic Illusions: The ability to create realistic telepathic illusions and cause people to experience events which are not actually occurring.
    • Telepathic Camouflage: The ability to alter the apparent physical appearance of oneself and others by altering the perceptions of those around them. This can go so far as to make other people believe that the camouflaged people are not there (invisible). The only limit to this ability, if one exists, is only imposed by the number of people a Telepath is trying to fool, not the number of people a Telepath is actually camouflaging.
