Is Anthony really omnipotent? I quote from the original story - After colliding a bird under his control with a rock, and killing it, when distracted " Petulantly, he thought the rock into a grave in the corn field; but he couldn't do anything more with the bird. Not because it was dead, though it was; but because it had a broken wing."
Now, we learn in the story that he can affect people who are ill ( "Like curing your wife's sick headaches or your kid's mumps" ) but there is no-one with a broken bone in the community. Is this evidence of a rather bizarre Achilles' Heel in his powers, that someone with a broken bone is beyond his 'reach"?
So is this page for the original work or the Twilight Zone episode recap? Because the Twilight Zone recap page links here.
I think that that Twilight Zone episode was based on this, but I can't say further.
