How to Stop an Exploding Man - S1-E23

Question: At the end of the episode, when Peter starts to glow, why doesn't he just fly or teleport away to a safe location instead of having to rely on Nathan to fly him away?


Chosen answer: Peter doesn't have perfect control over any of his abilities - he has to be able to focus on certain mental keys to be able to use them with any degree of certainty. With his acquired radioactivity power beginning to run out of control, any possibility of focus is gone - he's scared, he's in considerable discomfort if not outright pain. He's simply not able to do it, so Nathan has to step in to help get him clear of the area.

Question: How was Peter able to communicate with Charles Deveaux even though he's been dead for some time?


Chosen answer: Charles Deveaux had super powers. It could very well be his powers made it possible for Peter to communicate with him.
