Wisdom can absorb ambient heat and solar radiation, and he can release the absorbed energy from his fingertips as semi-solid energy projections called 'hot knives'. His hot knives are pure thermal energy, said to be as "hot as the surface of the sun". Wisdom can also use them to form shields to burn incoming missiles or to generate thermals beneath him as he falls to slow his descent. He can fire his hot knives as projectiles, or leave them attached to his fingertips like claws for close physical combat. Wisdom has excellent control of his knives and is able to cause severe damage or just to stun. Wisdom can control the size and number of these knives, and, with concentration, he can make one of those "hot knives" last for a longer period of time as opposed to others.
