Psychokinesis is a catch all, or umbrella, term used broadly to describe subjective powers similar to the topic name. For instance, Magic is used to describe any kind of mystical ability. Catch all terms can also be used to denote other powers such as Energy Projection used for any blast powers.

The SuperMan has nearly unlimited mental abilities. He knows no bounds.

Sometimes called "telekinesis" or "mental manipulation", Psychokinesis is a term used to describe the ability of some characters to use their mind to manipulate matter, time, space and/or energy without any physical means. The term can be applied to something as simple as Telepathy or as complicated as Psychometry.

Characters with this ability use psionics to affect their space around them. Psionics are general psychic powers. Some Vampires have this ability but their usage is very limited. Characters with this ability can manipulate something at a distance while others can create the matter that they manipulate. Characters like Static use Electrokinesis to create electricity and manipulate it. Characters like Mera need water around her to use her Hydrokinesis.
