The Brain as Source of Powers

The Heroes TV show places a special emphasis on the brain as the source of all character powers in the series.1

Evidence for this includes :

  • Both Claire Bennet and Peter Petrelli were unable to regenerate until objects were removed from their brain, until which time they appeared dead.
  • Sylar must remove the brain of someone who has powers to gain their abilities.

Charlie Andrews

According to Charlie Andrews, she had a brain tumor that would eventually wind up killing her had she not been killed by Sylar.
