The 4400: Top ten best powers

One day 4400 ‘missing’ people mysteriously reappear with strange abilities. Here are our top ten powers from the TV series The 4400…

Over the last century, thousands of people have gone missing. Suddenly and inexplicably, 4400 missing people are returned, all at once, exactly as they were on the day they vanished. Unclear what this world-altering event means, the government investigates the 4400 to piece together where they’ve been and why they’ve been returned. But slowly the 4400 begin to manifest strange powers, becoming apparent their presence is set to change the human race in ways no one could have foreseen.

Soon, the National Threat Assessment Command (NTAC), a division of the Department of Homeland Security, is in charge of dealing with the return of the 4400, with top agents Tom and Diana investigating the returnees, their abilities and just what that all means for the future of humanity.

From telekinesis to telepathy and even creating alternative realities (not to even mention killer blisters, pheromone detection and the ability to make people lose weight… until they die), there were plenty of weird, dangerous and amazing powers in The 4400 , here are our top ten powers…

Life Force Manipulation

Wielded by Shawn Farrell, one of the most powerful of the 4400, this power has the ability to heal living creatures… and also to harm them…

Creating alternative realities

Alana Mareva is able to create alternative realities within her mind and invite others to join in them. The alternative realities also work at a much faster pace, meaning you can have a completely different life while no time at all has passed in our normal reality. Handy when you don’t have the time or money to go on a holiday…

Predicting the future

Little Maia Rutledge was one of the youngest 4400 to go missing but when she returned she came back with the ability to predict the future. Don’t look too closely in her diary or you may find out something you shouldn’t…

4400

Enhanced physiology

Imagine having the strength and ability of a superhero. That’s what happened to Carl Morrissey when he returned and he put those abilities to good use by improving his crime-ridden area and teaching his horrible boss a thing or two…

4400

Telekinesis

It developed quite slowly (he was preoccupied with his new baby Isabelle being probably the most powerful person on the planet) but Richard Tyler soon discovered he could move objects with his mind. Very knife…

Telepathy

All he wanted was to be a baseball player but poor Gary Navarro came back with the ability to read minds (very distracting when you’re trying to play ball) and was soon used by the government as a secret spy…

Psychosis induction

Nasty Daniel Armand of The Nova Group attacked poor Shawn during Season Three with his ability to render people mentally unstable, forcing Shawn to be locked up in a mental hospital. Luckily (or perhaps unluckily), Isabelle was soon on the case…

4400

Create shockwaves

One of the earliest abilities seen in the show was Orson Bailey’s ability to send shockwaves, causing all manner of havoc when that short temper of his started to fray…

Mind Control

We’re sure plenty of people like to get their own way but Tess Doerner really can get people to do what she wants with her ability of mind control!

Fixing unresolved issues

Imagine visiting the ghosts of your past to resolve deeply buried issues with them… yeah it doesn’t sound like much fun but the results are surprisingly positive as we saw when Tom and Diana eat ability-laced cookies that force them to confront some long-forgotten issues…

The 4400 is being shown 6pm on weekdays on The Horror Channel.
