A quote from Scott Snyder, the creator of Duke Thomas, when asked about how Duke's powers relate to his role as a superhero; "We knew he was a character that had a long deep mythology that we had built around his mother and some of the books coming out like Immortal Men, where he would have '''photo-kinetic''' powers where he would take light in through his eyes and be able to see things that other people wouldn’t"

Retrocognition would imply he is simply looking into the past, which he is not. His powers are an application of his manipulation of light thus photokinesis. While thus far his only application of that power has been retrocogition, it is still possible for his skill set to expand beyond that down the line. Putting that aside, the creator themself said his powers are photokinetic. If anything, his retrocognition should be listed as a subset of his photokinetic powers similar to how aerokinesis is a subset of Barry's speedforce powers.

A quote from Scott Snyder, the creator of Duke Thomas, when asked about how Duke's powers relate to his role as a superhero; "We knew he was a character that had a long deep mythology that we had built around his mother and some of the books coming out like Immortal Men, where he would have photo-kinetic powers where he would take light in through his eyes and be able to see things that other people wouldn’t"

Retrocognition would imply he is simply looking into the past, which he is not. His powers are an application of his manipulation of light thus photokinesis. While thus far his only application of that power has been retrocogition, it is still possible for his skill set to expand beyond that down the line. Putting that aside, the creator themself said his powers are photokinetic. If anything, his retrocognition should be listed as a subset of his photokinetic powers similar to how aerokinesis is a subset of Barry's speedforce powers when though they aren't straight up airbending.
