I should note that the concept isn't just stealing powers, but could
involve absorbing various objects, a character (robot?) manually
adding parts-- really, any writer can and should interpret the basic
"gestalt hero/kitbashing" theme as broadly as they'd like.

That's probably why I've avoided it so far. :-)

I don't have much love anymore for X-Men and its endless subplot-
itis.  I do, however, have fond memories of watching THE TOMORROW
PEOPLE, though I can't remember anything about the show itself other
than the brief outline you recounted.
