    You know, I was just thinking about some of the TP/TK users of the MCU, and was just wondering...how many characters in the DCU are Telepaths, Telekinetics, or both? I mean, I know quite a few of the DCU characters, have read some of their books, but I am just not that intimately familiar with all things DC (the convoluted histories from all of the Crisis type stories really kind of turn me off, but I digress).  Does the DCU have any prominent characters that follow the strict TP/TK theme?

    @Wyldsong:

    Telepaths and telekinetics aren't as common in the DCU as the Marvel U. 
     
    But you've got Maxima TP/TK, Maxwell Lord TP, Martian Manhunter TP, Manchester Black TP/TK and others... all of these are on a very powerful scale comparable to any of Marvel's best.

    Wow, thanks for the intel guys.  I'll have to look some of those characters up. 
     
    I do have to say though...I forgot all about Hitman.  Wasn't it Hitman who got hit by Batman and puked on his boots?

    I don't know if Batman hit him, but he was an assasin that was bitten by one of the aliens in the Bloodlines crossover and gained telepathy and X-Ray vision.

    Despero's one of the big telepaths in the DCU, better at it than Martian Manhunter himself.....if you wanna read up on him i'd recommend Virtue and Vice.

    @Wyldsong:
    Mento (Steve Dayton) - aka Beast Boy's adopted father - is a powerful telepath and telekinetic.  Recent Doom Patrol Issues (I think it was DP #3) show Niles Caulder telling Dayton to stop pretending that he needs the Mento helmet to use latent telepathic abilities.  Caulder says Mento's afraid of looking like a freak (mutant), so he uses the helmet to make people think the power comes from the helmet, not him.

     
    Only certain people are able to use the Mento helmet - you have to have telepathic abilities in the first place.  The only other person seen using the helmet is Beast Boy. So he definitely has latent telepathic abillities but seems to use them instinctively and hasn't developed them.  When Raven turned Beast Boy evil in the 90s, she and Gar spoke to each other telepathically.  So she might have that ability at certain times (like when she's gone over to the Dark Side) too.

    Raven has telepathy and has at times been shown to have telekinesis, but she is mostly being depiced using her soulself and empathy.

    Crack open your Legion guide and you'll find a good number of TP/TK characters.  Saturn Girl, Starboy, Light Lass, etc.
