    I'm a new 4400 fan and I'm watching the Season 2 DVD and I still can't figure out all the character's "powers". Could someone tell me the characters' powers.

    Supposidly the 4400 powers are mind related. Not sure but they all have different powers, but with 4400 there are probably some duplicates. bracques listed the major characters, but there is a few others we have seen: the baseball player had telepathy, one woman could have planets grow, see variety. More powers will probably be shown in season 3.

    I remeber in the episode two, someone among the 4400 in the madhouse has the ability to affect ppl's mind, and subconsciously control ppl's mind.
    We can see all the patients were busy building a town-like sth to receive the so-called signals from outside the earth... Tom Balwin was even get into it as well at last.

    Welcome ;-)
    Some of the returnees didnt have abilities listed, so if anyone knows them, please let me know.

    I would consider that a pretty up to date list, since the phermones guy was on it. Although if I were him, i would look at that more as a curse than a gift, LOL. I couldnt imagine going thru life smelling everybody.

    I agree. But I liked their comment about him changing his career to that of running a dating service.

    I kind of miss the episode format from season 1 where they explain the practical application of each ability. Like the guy who's liver secreted something to speed up a person's metabolism, but in fact it was not went to be used on people, but for some other scientific purpose(which I can't recall at the moment, lol)

    I guess thephermone guy would bring ALOT more happiness into the world and drastically reduce the divorce rate.

    If he did have a dating service, he would have a 100% success rate. Could become rich in a few shorts weeks or months. lol

    Did anyone else notice how many of those abilities involved other people, such as healing, controlling, killing, ect.? What if the whole purpose they were sent back, was to stop some plague, or to stop a disease? Well that’s just me anyway…
