Mental powers, huh? Well, that rules Khan out.
Not in the least, because Cumberbatch elaborates to indicate that he's not talking about literal "powers" like mind control or telekinesis.
Really? Was that in the video (that I cannot see from my location)? It isn't in the text of the accompanying article.
There's a little bit from Cumberbatch which isn't quoted, but they get the bulk of what he says - all of the important bits are there, I think. Rather than anything which was omitted from the text, I suspect Legion was referring to the part where Cumberbatch said:
B.C. wrote:
He can sow an idea, which is as powerful as gunshots or close-hand combat, which he's masterful in.
He's particularly adept at suggestion and persuasion, sounds like.
"Recently my 8 year-old cousin asked me, with a wicked twinkle in his eye, if I'd ever microwaved a banana. I'm terrified to try, but I'm sure whatever happens—splattering, abrupt, radioactive—sounds exactly like an Annie Clark guitar solo."
