Added DiffLines:

* OneHeroHoldTheWeaksauce: Thanks to possessing the upper five Heightenings, he can bypass a lot of the usual limits of Awakening. He can drain color from anything that's not pure white, can Awaken anything within earshot instead of needing to touch things, and instinctively knows basic Awakening commands without having to learn them.


Added DiffLines:

* CoverBlowingSuperpower: Could have a Returned body and the first five Heightenings at any time, if he manifests his Divine Breath. That, however, would involve dealing with all the other implications of being Returned.
