Spoilers for Heroes through episode 202

So so far we know Sylar has:

Telekinesis (Lifting things, hitting things, stopping bullets or other projectiles, cutting)
Super memory (If that's an always active power does that mean that Peter actually has it now, or does he have to be around Sylar while Sylar is trying to remember something?)
Super Hearing
Melting things
Radiation projection (Balls of some flame like substance, EMPs, some kind of electric bolt)
Seeing the future
At least four or five other powers we haven't been made aware of yet.
Oh, and the ability to "analyze" things and steal powers, duh!

So far we know Peter has:

Seeing the future
Possibly some kind of dreaming ability (if it's not the same as the seeing the future one)
Telekinesis (same as above)
Mind Reading
Radiation projection (same as above)
Phasing through objects
Super strength
And again, duh, the ability to copy powers :)

Anything i'm forgetting for either of them?

They're both becoming quite the ubermensch, Sylar in more ways than one, but at the moment it _seems_ that Peter has the advantage, depending on what other powers Sylar has up his sleeve. Or at least Peter would have the advantage if he got a little more skilled in using his powers. Sylar's power seems to give him instant mastery of any power he takes, which is rather unfair =P

Oh, and kirinn, do we know how Sylar was tracking down all those specials? He clearly didn't have the complete list from Suresh's father, or he wouldn't have been so eager to follow Suresh around to find more victims. Whatever it was that he had might not have listed what their powers actually were, which would explain why he didn't put more of an effort into getting Molly. He might have just known she had a power, not what the power was specifically.
Current Mood: geekygeeky

Yeah, it's certainly possible that he *didn't* know what Molly's power was exactly, since he didn't keep trying for her. He certainly had at least a partial list of specials info, since he had much of the map and such in his apartment at the beginning. And even if he got to the point of doing his own research from scratch, it still seems like her power would be a huge help since he'd just need one bit of info (I forget, did she need a name? a face?) and then he'd have tabs on someone until he got them.

But yeah, following Suresh was of course also a great shortcut, which it seemed like he almost just lucked into, though he gets points for thinking fast when the opportunity happened.

Oh yeah, i'd forgotten about the map. But it certainly seemed like he didn't know which power the guy with the melting things power had. For that matter it doesn't seem like Suresh knew what power to expect from the woman with super hearing either. That actually seems a lot more natural, it was weird in the cases where his dad was somehow able to predict what the specific power would be.
