The powers attained after the storm represent flaws within the characters. In season 1, Alisha, who has casual sex without regard to others, is given the power of hyper-sexual arousal. Curtis, who constantly regrets his failed athletic career, can now reverse time. Kelly, conscientious of how people saw her, has the ability to read others' minds. Simon, an introvert can now become invisible. Nathan had a "live for today" attitude and so becomes immortal.
