Power reversal is the process that occurs when a person with an ability is under the influence of drugs, specifically ecstasy.
When a person with an ability takes ecstasy their power is reversed. This means for a temporary period of time while the drug is in their system they develop a new power that is almost always the opposite of their current power or at least far removed from their normal power. The process affects everyone with a superpower but only lasts for as long as the effects of the drug lasts. After the drug leaves their system their normal power returns.
|Person||Normal ability||Reversed ability|
- The extended ability of Mediumship was discovered after the original abilities were reversed and then returned to normal.
- This process didn't just change what powers did, but could also change how they functioned. This is demonstrated by how Jess' Blindness remained in a passive state until the drugs wore off, despite her power of X-ray Vision being consciously activated. Alex could also remove only one power from someone at a time, but could grant all the powers he removed into one person when his power was reversed.
