Terra-Man's {{Doppelganger}} there just shoots magical bolts out of his finger instead of using a gun. * [[ComicBook/TheLosers Jensen]] threatens a security guard with his fingers, claiming to be "dangerously telekinetic". Of course, none of the guards believe him, until Jensen says "bang" and the guard falls over. The rest of the security force surrenders [[spoiler: and Jensen thanks Cougar, his sniper backup in the building behind him.]]
