I dont know that has this been thought about yet.. But does anyone think that Arthurs power is basically just more advanced version of Peters power?

Just like Matt's dad had more advanced power than Matt had. Matt could only read minds, his dad could also push thoughts into other peoples minds. So Peter can just copy powers, but Arthur can also cut powers from a person.

that's sort of what i was getting at above

It seems unlikely. Arthur wouldn't have needed to kill Adam in order to heal. He would have started healing as soon as Adam walked into the room, or they could have just hurt Adama a bit (assuming his power needs to be actively in use in order for Arthur/Peter to take the power).

I don't care what superpowers Papa Petrelli has. One "Look" and he'll be nothing more than a melted puddle on the floor.

Claire is too young
Speak for yourself.
I always do!

If I were a guy, to tell ya the truth, my hotty fixation would be Elle. It's not Claire's literal age but the fact that she seems like such a stupid, vapid little barbie doll that turns me off. I don't like Ali Larter's face, there's something rodent-like about it. Maya has the same problem as Claire x100. Claire's mom Meredith is ironically hotter than her dimwit spawn. Too bad they killed Simone, she was a genuine hotty, ditto for Candice. They're good at keeping hot guys around, terrible with the ladies.
Hey, never said she was my first choice, just that I wouldn't count her out.

I first saw Ali Larter in Varsity Blues... so no matter what she looks like now, that's how I'll always remember her.

I've never been impressed by Ali, too oonventional... Although, I do have hopes that she's be in charge of an entires new world of hotness when it comes time to play Babs on heroes. Babs is going to do big things. true story. Tell your friends.

^Hmmm....there is some crossover potential there. Maybe what we saw at the end of BSG's third season

I never really got it, once we realised that the Classic Colonials were capable of Time travel in Galactica 1980, that they just so stalwartly accepted the extermination of their species by the Cylons when it was within their power to backstep their own genocide?

Watching the S1 episodes for "clues" can be fun - not sure if this was meant to be a clue, but it's intriguing now:

When Claude first meets Peter and realizes his power is to be a sponge, he says "oh you're one of those." Did he mean one of those Petrellis, who apparently can inherit power-sponginess? Claude would have been acquainted with Arthur - at least, it's not outside the realm of possibility.

Another fun moment, in the episode right after Homecoming when Peter is in jail in Odessa TX and Nathan apparently comes to visit. But it turns out to be a prophetic dream and Nathan transforms into Sylar, who tells Peter he doesn't know how to make use of power.

I took this for a premonition of 5YG where Sylar takes Nathan's identity but now it could be interpreted as a clue about Sylar also being his brother and the comment about using power certainly ties into the Peter-Sylar plotline this season...

^ Another good one...

When I was a kid, I used to wish some stranger would come and tell me my family wasn't really my family. Oh, they weren't bad people, they were just insignificant. I wanted to be different... special. I wanted to change. A new name, a new life. The watchmaker's son became a watchmaker. It is so futile. And I wanted to be important.

As much as I love this show, I think you're giving the writers far too much credit this time It'd be great if they really did intend these little hints though.
