YMMV / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles And Other Strangeness
Awesome, yet Impractical: The Animal Speech and Animal Control Psionic Abilities. The idea of a mutant animal being able to communicate and control normal animals sounds awesome, but you can only speak to and control animals of your own kind. Great if you're a common animal like a dog, cat or mouse, but if you're a mutant lion or tiger the only places your likely to find normal versions of your own kind is the zoo or a circus. It gets even more impractical if you're using an exotic animal from one of the After The Bomb Supplements like Mutants Down Under where would a mutant numbat and normal numbats in New York City?
Simple Yet Awesome: By contrast other Psionic abilities like Telepathic Transmission (Great for players who don't want to spend Bio-E on speech) Hypnotic Suggestion, Mind Trap and All forms of Bio-Manipulation are all incredibly awesome and efficient.
