    power

    I watch the drama HEROES.
    Claire is a girl in the drama who can heal herself so healing is her power.
    She has one power--healing. Is it weird to use the plural.



    Claire has powers
    Claire has a power

    No, it is weird to say "Claire has a power". Maybe:
    "Claire has self-healing powers" OR
    "Claire has the power of self-healing".
