Type: Combat skill
Radiokinesis' is a combat skill allowing the user to absorb, control, and redirect radiation.
As with most skills, monsters and other heroes often mock heroes who only have a lower level of the radiokinesis skill. A common insult is "You call that radiokinesis? I received more radiation this morning from eating Brasil nuts.", "Stand still so I can tan the left side of my cheek.", and "You must like eating cold hot pockets."
At higher levels, heroes can control radiation causing damage and embarrassing effects on enemies (like diarrhea). Heroes can also protect themselves from their own radiokinesis effects of emitting radiation by wearing sunscreen.
A common tactic for blocking radiokinesis attacks is consuming potassium iodine tablets, though this prevents heroes skilled in the art of radiokinesis from absorbing radiation, which in turn prevents them from emitting the radiation necessary for the radiokinesis skill.
