For those of you that watch Heroes, can you answer this question?

Asked by electricsky (825points) May 2nd, 2009

What exactly is up with Nikki/Jessica? I’m only on the 11th episode, so no spoilers please, but I can’t seem to figure out what her “power” is. It just seems to me that she has some kind of split personality disorder.

@mammal: Thank you! That pretty much answers my question.
and “By the way, I really don’t like that kid. He’s always wearing this expression of smug disappointment.” that made me laugh for some reason.

Her power is super strength. You know how she finds men torn in half after she blacks out? Niki/Jessica has Dissociative Identity Disorder, which you learn more about when her back story is revealed. It just so happens that Jessica, being the more ruthless personality, has easier access to the super strength. The disorder itself has nothing to do with super powers.

I thought that it was the whole Astral Projection theory that people used to spew out on the Heroes Forums. Since something obviously happened to Jessica that brought her to Nikki, though i never liked that theory.

Split personality due to life circumstances (how everyone seems to blossom into their powers). I see it as she needed the strength to stand up against men that kept her down and being a single mom and thats why her power manifested.
