The game is very different in tone from Diabolical and Grand Academy. It’s, uhm, more serious? And even kinda bleak? I don’t know.That’s just the way I see it.
To answer your question:
The MC can read & influence minds and even mind control. The mind control part is kinda like transferring (?) your consciousness on the other person’s mind. You’re a gifted telepath and it’s implied that your power only got stronger over the years. Physically, you aren’t very strong BUT you can take control of very strong characters. As a former superhero, you’re not helpless in physical fights since you got some moves too. It’s just not your specialty.
