Immolation is the reflexive ability to resurrect the body after it has been destroyed in certain ways.
- Shelton Bishop has this ability naturally.
- Abbie Gray has mimicked this ability from Shelton.
- Noah Gray has also mimicked the ability.
- In World 2, Peter Petrelli has absorbed the ability.
- Hugh Aaran will also possess this ability naturally.
This ability means that the body will automatically reform and heal, resurrecting the person who possesses it, if the body had been destroyed upon death. It will activate if he or she is burned, frozen and shattered, disintegrated or killed in an explosion. However, several methods of death will not trigger the ability's activation, and will therefore be permanent unless another ability saves him or her. The ability offers no protection against deletion, as seen with both Abbie and Peter. A suicidal death would be permanent even if the method is one which would otherwise trigger immolation.
