Gyrokinesis or Gravitokinesis, Barokinesis and Anti-Gravity Manipulation is the ability to mentally manipulate gravitational fields, allowing one to increase or decrease the effects of it around any desired area, to make objects extremely lighter, heavier or to even crush things by compressing them with intense gravity. One this ability can even shift his center of gravity and defy it, by walking up walls, jumping up to extreme heights, gravitating objects and subjects to/away from him and the like. One this ability can even sheathe subjects in anti-gravity (so that they float away uncontrollably) or increase the presence of anti-gravity to perform athletic feats which require a bit of gravity defiance (extremely high jumps, tossing foes extremely far, etc.).

If an evolved human is capable of increasing gravity in an isolated area to an incredible amount, they may be able to generate a black hole of sorts, pulling things into it indiscriminately. The black holes have an incredible dimensional pull, which is actually the gravity from some other dimension mingling with ours and thus they have a pull to them. However, the exact location at the other end of the vortices is unknown, furthermore the condition of objects (or people) who are pulled in is unknown.

Known Evolved Humans[]

  • Stephen Canfield naturally possesses this ability.



Gyrokinesis could overload and create a black hole that would be impossible to control. Additionally, the change in gravity could have unseen health consequences.

Gyrokinetic Black Hole

This is the diagram of an Evolved Human who has the sole gyrokinetic ability to generate black holes.

Stephen Canfield has the ability to increase gravity in a single location to the point of creating a black hole vortex in mid-air that vary in size from a few centimeters to nearly a meter in diameter. These vortices draw surrounding matter into themselves. Anything that enters one of these vortices immediately vanishes; where — if anywhere — such material goes is unknown.

Stephen can voluntarily create vortices by concentrating, but he can also spontaneously generate a vortex when he loses his temper. Once he creates a vortex, he can close it at will. He has not been seen to create a vortex more than a few meters away from his body, and in all instances they have formed within his line of sight.

In one instance, Stephen created a vortex and then left the vicinity. That vortex dissipated after approximately one minute; but it is not clear whether it spontaneously dissipated after a period of time, Stephen caused it to dissipate somehow, or it dissipated because he moved beyond a certain distance from it. When he created a vortex and disappeared into it, the vortex immediately dissipated.

Stephen can use this ability with relative accuracy, as when he created a small vortex to disarm Claire Bennet.

The maximum amount of force that a vortex exerts on nearby objects is unclear. The strongest vortex that Stephen created was capable of pulling in the equivalent weight of an average teenage girl despite her resistance, and it could rip wooden boards out of a floor. Besides himself, Stephen caused at least one other person to vanish with his ability.

Stephen does not seem to be affected by the vortices he creates, but he can allow himself to be sucked into one if he so chooses. He has not been seen to create more than one vortex at a time.
