In the original 1960s TV series, Uncle Martin had three powers: levitation, invisibility (once he raised his antennae), and mind-reading (of earthlings).

All I can say is I'm glad I didn't pay good money to see this, I watched it on T.V the other night. It lacked a decent script and had none of the charm of the original series.
