Capabilities

User can create, shape and manipulate helium, a colorless, odorless, tasteless, non-toxic, inert, monatomic gas, with boiling and melting points lowest among the elements and as such it exists only as a gas except in extreme conditions. Helium is the second lightest element and the second most abundant element in the observable universe, being present at about 24% of the total elemental mass while being relatively rare on Earth.

Helium is used in cryogenics, (largest single use, about a quarter of production) particularly in the cooling of superconducting magnets, with the main commercial application being in MRI scanners. Helium's other industrial uses — as a pressurizing and purge gas, as a protective atmosphere for arc welding and in processes such as growing crystals to make silicon wafers—account for half of the gas produced. A well-known but minor use is as a lifting gas in balloons and airships. As with any gas whose density differs from that of air, inhaling a small volume of helium temporarily changes the timbre and quality of the human voice.

Limitations

  • May be unable to create helium, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
  • Distance, mass, precision, etc. depend upon of the knowledge, skill, and strength of the user.

Known Users

  • Helium boy (Helium Boy)
  • The Helium Brothers (The Qwaser of Stigmata)
