    Powers and Abilities

    Psynapse was a telepath who could tap into the psionic energy of the planet he stood upon. Using this he could create burst of mental energy, astral project and draw others into an astral form, remove memories of a person, leaving them with a child like mind. He could even create monsters from pure mental energy with tremendous power. When he encountered other telepaths he seems capable of tapping into their powers and momentarily overwhelming them or possessing them. However if the person he was attacking had once had telepathic powers and for some reason had lost them Psynapse's powers would restore that person powers such as he did accidentally twice, once to Jean Grey and other time to Nate Grey.
