This is an idea I was just thinking about.

1) What if MC users glow when they have a high MC ability, the more powerful the creature the more it glows? But instead of a bright glow, perhaps like a dark fog type effect.
2) What if MC users can see for a limited distance through walls and other barriers? The power of their mind allows them to see through walls and perform other magic type effects.
3) What if powerful MC users like the Ethereal use "magic" instead of weapons to kill their enemies? For example the Ethereal wouldn't use a Blaster gun, but would instead fling out a sort of psionic/mind power beam.

1. But then we'd have no problems detecting the Sectoid Leaders.
3. I guess MC Defense would come in handy when defending against this type of attack.
