Power Holding is the rare and powerful ability to to take hold of someone's power by transporting it into your mental grip momentarily, leaving the user without it for those moments. Advanced users are able to use the powers they are holding as well. This is ability is mainly used to use different abilities as well as keep your opponent defenseless for a while.
When you take hold of the person's power mentally, it will dissapear, almost as if it went into your head. When you let it go, it reappears where it was taken hold of. This power also works with mental powers like telepathy. If someone tried to use their telepathy on you, you could take hold of them power and then use their telepathy on them, doing things like putting thoughts into their mind.
However, the downside effect of this power is that you can't use your own ability because you are busy holding their ability so it is best to have someone else with you to attack opponent or use the ability your holding on opponent. Another downside is that once you can't hold it any longer, the power continues so if you were holding fire thrown at you, it would resume being thrown at you. The best way to avoid this is to hold the person's power before they even begin to use their power. Vince is the only person to gain this power and it is an advancement of telekinetic transportation.
