So I have this headcanon and nothing to do with it, so here you go.
Thanks to @mysunfreckle for putting this damn idea in my head, and my friend Browen for headcanoning it out with me.
Our glorious triumvirate road trips across the country to the capital to protest mutant registration laws and mutant persecution. Along the way, they gather up a motley crew of fellow exiled mutants we all know and love.
Here’s what their powers are:
Enjolras: Has the power to mildly manipulate people’s emotions. Need a small crowd placated? No problem. Riled up and enraged? Sure. Can’t tell if the boy you like actually loves you or you accidentally made him feel that way? Shit.
Courfeyrac: Can shoot lightning from his hands and manipulate electricity. I guess you could say he has an electric personality. “Is it just me, is there an electric force between us?” *shocks someone mildly. “You could say you’re shocked to see me!”
Combeferre: Has the power to glean the history of an object just by touching it. This comes in handy when they start tracking down secret mutants in the cities they pass through.
Grantaire: He’s basically a green version of Nightcrawler. He can teleport, but looks like the part demon he is. He frequently argues with Enjolras about how easy it is to peacefully protest when you can hide your mutation easily.
Eponine: Has the power to briefly glimpse the future, but it’s sporatic and comes in snippets. Her parents have tried exploiting this trait, resulting in her leaving home with Gav and trying to make the most of it on the streets until she meets the Amis.
Gavroche: Is still really young and isn’t showing signs of powers yet. It sends them all for a loop the day he discovers his powers are intangability.
Cosette: Explodes with force power when she gets anxious or upset. A wall of force erupts from her, driving people away. She finds it difficult to control.
Marius: Can speak, read, write, and understand any language inherently. He finds his powers incredibly mundane compared to everyone else’s. But he follows the Amis along after Cosette.
Joly: Has the power to heal other people, but when he does, he suffers pain proportional to the damage he heals. This pain stays with him until he heals someone else. The Amis often run around giving themselves paper cuts for Joly to heal in order to alleviate his suffering after one of them gets injured.
Bossuet: Thought he had no powers at all, just incredibly bad luck. But he sympathized with the mutant cause. Until they discovered that his mutant ability was actually generating bad luck around him. They figured this out when a cop was snuck up on Joly and somehow comically misfired his taser gun into his own foot when Bossuet stepped in to protect Joly.
Musichetta: Can make duplicates of herself she can control simultaneously. Much to Joly and Bossuet’s amusement. But this skill has also come in handy when they need protest crowds to look bigger than they actually are.
Jehan: Is a shapeshifter. Yes, he actually chooses to appear like this. No one assumes anyone dressed like this is a shapeshifter.
Montparnasse: Can control shadows and darkness to an extent, similar to Dr. Facillier in Princess and the Frog. He’s more of a showman than anything and likes weaving fancy black clothing out of the dark.
Bahorel: Super constitution. Can eat anything, take a punch, that sort of thing.
Feuilly: Can manipulate the air around him like an airbender. He uses his fans to do this. He’s also better than the shitty car AC unit, so they squabble over who gets him in their car in the height of the summer.
Jean Valjean: Super Strength. THE MAN LIFTS A FULL CART OFF OF A MAN IN CANON. ALONE. So obviously he’s super strong.
Javert: Is in favour of mutant registration and works with the police force to enforce the new laws. He’s an excellent detective, but his values are thrown into crisis when he discovers that what makes him a good detective is actually a mutation. He thought it was just good instincts, but he’s actually hyper aware with better than human senses.
While waiting for a good instrumental of Stronger than You (lyrics are already written but all the instrumentals I’ve found have serious problems), I thought this up and did it to keep the voices fresh.
This is the first time one of these has been so big I needed to compress for tumblr to allow it, so the file is in 256kbps. Hopefully it won’t make much difference! ;^_^
Wario: Waluigi, Why are we visiting Mario?
Waluigi: Simple! We’re gonna take advantage of his generosity and get a bunch of his power-ups to make our plunders more successful!
