  • Merlin Sickness: As of the eight month time jump he's aging in reverse, looking more like a teenager than the full grown adult he was when he was born on Mars.

  • Person of Mass Destruction: The Star Brand is one of the most powerful weapons in existence, and the White Events are designed to confer these powers on beings who are properly suited to use that power.
