Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


girl in eye spy episode had a bionic eye thing. no powers.
girl from most recent episode had no powers, it was a third party all along.
the floating corpses ep didnt involve a serial killer with powers. it was a chitauri virus.

the show keeps, for want of a better term, copping out when it comes to "registered gifteds". it doesnt really make sense to me. maybe they are waiting on confirmation from higher up on what they can and cannot establish.

i think all the people with powers have been due to cosmic influences or the extremis cocktail serum thingo made by centipede.

They can't go too balls out so to speak since everything has to be in sync with the MCU.

i don't think there's been a genuine registered gifted yet. it's kind of silly in a way.
Chan Ho Yin was a genuine pyrokinetic. Centipede tried to enhance his abilities.

And "registered gifted" doesn't have to refer to any specific mutation, or one-size-fits-all origin story. Superheroes in the MCU, just like in the comics, get their powers from lab accidents, genetic tinkering, radiation, toxic chemicals, aliens, magic, the whole nine yards. I'm sure they consider Iron Man a "registered gifted," and his "powers" are just derived from good ol' nuts 'n' bolts technology.

Except there isnt anything physically super about Tony at all, he's an ******* in a high tech suit. Without that tech he's just an ******* with a lot of money and a high IQ.

Yes, and? That is exactly *why* he'd be on their list. You don't need physical superpowers; being a genius sufficient to build powered armor in caves with boxes of scraps *is* super.

Superior intellect? Yes. I would definitely say that would fall under the aforementioned heading.

the term "gifted" can indeed refer to an extremely high intellect. In fact, that IS the word that's generally used to describe such people in real life. So yes, Tony could very well qualify.

This is true. Gifted is used in real life.

For the superheroes like the Hulk and Ant Man, I consider them as "superhumans" or "Genetically altered"

Stark was lumped in as a freak along with Cap, Thor and Hulk in Avengers for that very reason, along with the arc reactor in his chest.

Plus, Stark wouldn't have either the arc reactor OR the suits to begin with if NOT for his brilliant intellect.

And at the end of the day, if you could pick Tony's Intellect or Tony's suit, which would you choose?

Tony's intellect is the greater weapon.

Tony's intellect, of course. I could build a suit and so much more with that.

Tony's intellect because I could use it to make the suit and more. With just Tony's suit, I would just be War Machine.

Ditto, Tony's intellect by far. Without it, you're a guy in a suit of armor and that's it. With it, you have the suits and the potential for so much more.

Plus, Tony's intellect is eternal while the Iron Man suit is temporarily. What happens if it is somehow damaged and you lack the intellect to fix it?
