The power to
see x-rays. Sub-power of X-Radiation Manipulation and Electromagnetic Vision. Not to be confused with Penetration Vision.
The user can see x-rays, electromagnetic waves of high energy and very short wavelength, which is able to pass through many materials opaque to light. This can be used for medical purposes such as the detection of cancers, tumors, blackened lungs, etc. The skill of perceiving a specific location (i.e. artery) is given by partial reflection of the ray from each specific surface surveyed.
In some cases, the user can actually emit x-rays from their eyes, producing an effect similar to
