Mindbenders live in a world just like ours, but bigger.
A world where not only your actions but your most private impulses and feelings can be tracked, changed, distorted and used against you. Mindbenders read thoughts, plant ideas, create illusions, throw objects and people, terrify, cripple and even kill with their minds.
They are also people. They grow. They develop their abilities, their understanding of themselves and their adversaries. They have new experiences, build and lose confidence, obsess and grow out of old failings and fears, only to find new ones. Day-to-day learning blossoms over time into knowledge.
This is a long way of saying, the series works best when you start at the beginning.
Starbucks’ll give you a buzz for $5. I’ll take you to a bigger world for $1. Why not?
