Quotes: Heart Is an Awesome Power
People always think the "heart" kid was ripped off, but imagine how he's doing now that he's thirty and cruising the bar scene... "Hey pretty lady, can I buy you a drink?" "No thanks, I'm just waiting for—" "HEART!" "Forget the drink, let's go out back right now!"

"He can read minds? The power of Heart lets him read minds? That doesn't make him useless, that actually makes him more valuable!"
Linkara, Atop the Fourth Wall

"... and heart is the only superpower you need."
Aquaman, shortly before singing about it, on Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

"Aquaman is the King of Atlantis, a domain which encompasses the entire ocean. He owns 70% of the planet. He is super strong, super fast, and he can summon Cthulhu to eat your soul if he felt like it. I don't make fun of Aquaman.".
Linkara, on how "useless" Aquaman is.

If anything, this situation is very illuminating, in terms of how bad some parahumans might be in a worst case scenario. There are some powers that are tame at first glance, but utterly disastrous if left unchecked.
