Goofs

Craig is in a room which is suddenly filled with gas, which proceeds to knock him out. Later, he dives off a dock and holds his breath underwater, longer than the average person would be able to. Why didn't he do this in the room with the gas? He would have instinctively known to try to hold his breath, so wouldn't it have worked the same as it did underwater? See more »

When The Powers Do Work, Then They Don't Work
31 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Granted, this was the second episode in the series. Thus far, the powers of these heroes had by and large been relatively nothing more than super-hearing.

But there seemed to be a bit of a contradiction in this early episode.

Craig is in a room that is suddenly filled with gas, which proceeds to knock him out.

Later, he dives off a dock and holds his breath underwater, longer than the average person would be able to.

Why didn't he do this in the room with the gas? He would have instinctively known to try to hold his breath, so wouldn't it have worked the same as it did underwater? Does this then give the impression that these abilities of the Champions gradually progressed?
