I'm leaning towards him having Forge's (X-Men) ability. But he can build and repair things using psychically. What do you guys think?

We have Forge as Sylar.

Micah is a Technopath. He just makes non-working electric things work.

Seems to me like he's some sort of child genuis with an affinity for technology. Judging by what i've seen alreadythat is, but wether its powers or he's just fortunate i could'nt say yet.

He's been shown using his powers to fix a pay phone.

The interesting thing is that he did not completely fix the pay phone. Remember it worked for him, but when his dad tried it, it did not anymore.

Though Micah wouldn't have wanted it to have worked when D.L. tried, since he claimed that the phone was broken and that he was just "playing" with it.

Well having caught up its revealed that he does in fact have powers, which has some simlarity to sylars powers, possibly the same.

In Micah, we have a technopath, or at least, one who can see what's wrong and start to fix things electronically. If Gabriel/Sylar started out as a time piece or watchmaker, who's to say Micah doesn't have the same ability to see how the powers work in others as well? After all, our brains are a bunch of "circuits" and there has been some indication that he caught on to the Niki/Jessica alter-ego very quickly. I hope next year moves the Sanders family arc a lot faster and in a more integrated way than how it's been thus far -- with Micah hopefully playing a role in helping his mom fix herself.

Actually, Sylar's power is intuition -- he understand how things work. It's possible that Micah has the same power, but further enhanced. He understands how things work (when he took the laptop apart and in Genesis, he was rebuilding the logic board), and seems to have the ability to effect repairs to it. Sylar's only able to change himself. Micah changes others.

Micah's ability seems to be the ability to transmit an interperate low-voltage electrical signals, more than anything else. That would allow him to understand the laptop and use a disconnected payphone without having Sylar-level intuition.

With the laptop, he could feel the circuits just by touching them and sending a signal down them, alloing him to completely map out the laptop in his head. This would also allow him to manipulate the payphone, since modern phone systems use purely electonic switching.

I know this is just theformer comic book geek in me talking but the creator's mentioned in a article about having one character control magnetism. it's possible that Micah could have used magnetism hotwire the phone.

It'll be interesting to see how they develop Micah because his powers are starting to manifest at a much younger age than any of the others, possibly because both of his parents have special abilities.

I'm not sure. It seems everyone's powers started to reveal themselves 6 Monts ago. So Micah taking apart the laptop would be his inciting moment. Although your theory could be accurate since Niki/Jessica was formed at a young age.

i would have to agree with you on this, micha is very young id say 10. He has a lot of time to hone his power and develop it. since his power seems mental it seems that there is no limit to what he can do, Claire is young to but it seems she may have maxed out on healing unless she later learns she can heal other people like the ancients. I think she may have immnities to poison and radiation too.

I'm sort of still with the theory something happened 6 months ago and people started gaining powers. Claire only discovered her power 6 months ago while arguing with Jackie. DL found about his when he got out of his handcuffs and then he walked out of prison. Don't know how Niki sans Jessica found out. Micah might have found out with the laptop. Nathan found out in the car crash that paralyzed his wife. Peter may have triggered his when Nathan was almost hurt by the crash.
