292) Mind Control (animal)

Mind Control (animal) – The ability to control animals.  Interspecies mind control.

Aquaman (DC) can only control aquatic creatures in theory.  This power is a type of mind control and the standard explanation is that animals have different/weaker minds so a character that could not exercise mind control over a human could control some types of animals.
