Cosmo The Spacedog's powers and abilities
Cosmo is a high-level telepath. He further has the ability to create defensive shields wide enough to block a corridor and strong enough to deflect energy blasts. He can read and manipulate the minds of others and even higher order animals.
He can mask his presence and the use of his abilities from being detected by other psions and psychic entities. He can extend these defenses to others around him as well. Cloaking via telepathy is not perfect and powerful telepaths may notice and 'see' through this ability.
Ability to erect a psychic shield for protection of himself and of others minds.
He can create realistic and very detailed illusions and cause people to experience events which are not actually occurring.
He can alter the apparent physical appearance of himself and other people by altering the perceptions of those around him. This can go so far as to make other people believe that the camouflaged people are not there e.g. invisible.
He can manipulate other people's minds easily, achieving a variety of effects.
He can control the thoughts and actions of others.
Mental Paralysis: He can induce temporary mental or physical paralysis. He was skilled enough to make a Cancerverse-version of the Hulk stroke out by reaching into its mind.
He can erase any awareness of particular memories or cause total amnesia.
Mental Sedating: Can telepathically "sedate" his victims so that, if already rendered unconscious, they remain so for as long as he continues to "sedate" them.
He can project psionic force bolts which have no physical effects but can affect a victim's mind so as to cause the victim pain or unconsciousness, force them to suffer from a stroke, or turn someone brain-dead.
He can sense the presence of another superhuman within a small but as yet undefined radius of himself by perceiving the distinctive mental radiations emitted by such a being.
Cosmo is decades older than the normal maximum life expectancy of a dog.
