No, he CAN'T fly. He can only hold one power at a time. That's why he touched Mohinder and was kicking ass with Mohinder's strength. Once he touched Nicky(or whatever her character's name is now) he lost that power and started to get HIS ass kicked and then he touched the plane's wall and it turned into ice with HER power. That's the drawback. Only Sylar hold multiple powers now.

That's exactly what happened... so we can only asume that's how his power works now... and that's why he was holding on to his life, cuz he couldn't fly
... now whether or not it works just like Rogue's power it's unclear... cuz Mohinder hold him and the "sparks" didn't fly off... so I could asume he conciously has to absorb the power in order to use it.
I first I didn't like it, but now that I think about it it's the best way to keep the character around with a power, rather than to kill him off or completely take his power away... he was way too powerful for his own good
...Now that only leaves all powerful Sylar who will [SPOILER - highlight to read]: gather other mutants to fight the powerless human in a battle for evolution and survival of the fitest.... and he will call himself Sparkman.... Magneto is already taken...
Edit: btw Rex, could please add the synopsis to the thread's starter post
just to be consistent with previous threads
