Empathy was the ability to sense the emotions of others. Although not everyone has empathy, this isn't always a super power, but it can be, depending on the level of empathy that is present within the person with this ability.
This ability can allow people to clearly feel what another person feels. Some people with this ability can project emotions into other people. Some, like Rima and Vixen for example, are able to communicate with animals thanks to this ability.
