Opinions on Linderman

What's the deal with Linderman? The guy is strange and the writers have not revealed a great deal about him (unless i've missed something big)


He's suddenly reappeared in this series after dying in the first but we hardly know anything about him (i suppose more will be revealed later on) So far all we've been shown is that his power is healing, he has his own company, he was quite a powerful man, is a member of the company and begins to appear in Nathans dreams all of a sudden in the newest series after dying in a previous one...


I know it sounds really stupid but it makes me wonder if hes some kind of god with the way he acts and the healing stuff... what do you all think?

the online graphic novels go into greater detail about his past. in chapters 24-29 and then in chapter 73. just go to nbc.com got to the heroes page run your mouse over the "official heroes site tab" and select graphic novels.

my personal opinion of why Linderman has shown up again after his death is because Nathan suffers from the same malady that Niki suffered from, that Jessica died from, and that Traci is just now becoming aware of. I believe that Nathans power is not truly flight, but the same as that of his older(Gabriel) and younger(Peter) bothers. each brother has a psychological barrier limiting his power absorption ability. Peter is the most emotionally open and empathic one of the brothers, so his ability has almost no restrictions other then that he has to consciously think about using his powers for them to work. Gabriel requires that he "understand" the workings of the mind of the people he steals his powers from. Nathan tries so hard to be a normal person that he has psychologically blocked his ability to the point where he cannot even use it except in dire circumstances.

I think that it is not linderman, but some new person that will be added to the list of heroes, but it must be someone who understands the company n peoples power, my theory is that its daddy come home, he has good intentions (well better that linerman) as he actually gets nathen into power and seems like there is no motive. (like exploding pete) plus giving sylar and peters powers its easy to assume that he'll have similar (multi power) abilities. But needed to disapear before season 1 as to stop peter from getting his powers. Wow ive had that thought for a few weeks now really needed to vent that, lol. What everyone think????

I like phylem's assessment regarding the brothers and accessing their abilities, but I'm not convinced yet that Nathan is as stong as Peter or Syler. Nathan is and always has had the weaker mind (he's always done what people tell him to do) and that is still unfolding now. He turned to alcholol addition to cope, so he doesn't have the coping skills that the other do. I think he is going to go mad with the God-complex that's developing in him.

I don't think nathan has the same problem that killed jessica as that was abuse from her father, and niki's problem was that she developed a split personality as her mind had problems with dealing with her new found power.
I think that stof1984 s on the right tracks, my theory is a person with the power of projection, able to make people see a manifestation of the users thoughts and ideas, n nathan case it is linderman as he was the other person who tried to get him in power
