148) Duplication (other)

Duplication (other) – The ability to make duplicate objects or persons. This is a power that would be so useful but almost never appears. However, whenever a character makes a physical duplicate of themselves then they invariably duplicated the clothing they wear. Why not wear a super expensive watch and keep the watch after the duplicate person is gone?
