Berserk Buttons galore, and mastery over magic, eventually mutated into the one-eyed, war-and-magic-affinitied Odin.
Prospero is a Quarian on Pilgrimage.First, he is always in a suit that resembles Tali's. Second, He has three fingers. Third, he seems unworried about being on earth. As for food, he's eating the large stash of food tubes that he had in his ship. His translation unit is damaged and he can't fix it so that everyone can understand what he is saying. However, it does translate what they are saying to him. Take a look at  and tell me that does not resemble ◊
When Toby uses his powers for big things it acts more like a path not taken choice, than a magically imposed price.By that I mean that the principals curse was his chance for redemption, and Toby not having his best possible friend causes Tyler to not be abandoned.
Truth has something to do with Toby's powers.They work on Equivalent Exchange, and Truth has been something of a jerk at times, this wouldn't really surprise me.
Tyler's parents want him to get powers for his own well-being.Right, so what we've seen of his parents, their entire character is built around pushing Tyler to the school, and to getting powers. I'm sure part of it is because they want him to be like them, but also part of it is, they're probably not immortal. When they die, and he doesn't have powers, what's to stop any past villain from killing him on the spot. So him getting some sort of power is really their hopes that he will be able to survive if and when they die. Him being enrolled in the superhero school also helps him make friends with children with super powers so they would protect him if he never gets them. In fact, one reason why they spend so much time with Toby to train his powers is so HE can protect Tyler when they're gone.
In the future, Cecil will take on Revenant's mantle.And Tyler will stay Moon Shadow because he has excellent press.
Zodon is destined to become a superhero, not a villain.Every time he tries something villainous, it backfires, blows up in his face and/or actually has a net positive effect for everybody else around him. Every time he does something heroic, usually by being forced into it, it works out perfectly. He's hero material, he's just still in denial about it.
