  • Peter Petrelli has mimicked this ability in World 5 and World 8.
  • Greg Baxendale has this ability naturally.


"The German"

"The German" is able to control magnetic fields as well as magnetic metals. He can manipulate these metals into bending or levitating across a room, and he can also redirect bullets at will. He was shown using his ability to break into a bank vault, close the shutters in that bank, and control the frame of a vehicle.


The terrorist was shown using the ability to attack and destroy a Pinehearst convoy of lorries. In future, he will also be shown using it to pull a gun away from Claire Bennet.

Bo Lofontaine

Bo is able to manipulate some metals and instruments into making beautiful sounds. He uses his ability a lot to create the best music possible. Also he can cause objects to magetically float around rooms.

Robert Max

Robert has the same limits as "The German".

Peter Petrelli

Peter also has the same limits as "The German" in World 8. In World 5 he has the same limits as the terrorist.

Greg Baxendale

Greg has good control over this ability, although he can only control metals using a magnetic field, meaning he can only manipulate magnetic metals. He is also able to control the magnetic field itself. He can make the magnetic metals move in ways they would not normally, although the bigger and heavier the object, the harder it is for him for him to move it.
