There are 5 people in a corn maze. At the end of the corn maze, there is a mirror-maze of the same size but with a different pattern. Which of the 5 people finishes both mazes in the same amount of time?

Do they all start the maze together?

It doesn't really matter--each person's time is only being compared to his or her own time for the other maze. It's not really a contest, necessarily.

The one who's blind.

The one who gets lost and never makes it out of the first maze. (Does it count as taking an infinite amount of time to finish the second maze if the person never starts?)

Either Nathan Petrelli or D.L. Hawkins.

Or, I guess, Peter Petrelli.

That is to say, the one who can either fly or phase through solid matter. Or can absorb those powers.

The one with a laser, because then he could reflect the laser light through the mirrors and shine it in people's eyes. I don't know how that would help him finish the maze, though.

Good guesses.

But the answer is... the NINJA.

Or Hiro Nakamura, who can just teleport to the end of the maze.

Actually, Ninjas are slightly better in mirror mazes than cornfields, because it's harder to be silent in a cornfield.

Well, traditionally, the answer, I think, is supposed to be "the blind person," but I just decided that the ninja answer was superior in various respects.

draculas can't see themselves in mirrors.

Wouldn't that make it even harder?

Also note that rage can be used quite effectively against machines.

Yeah, I guess it would take extra-long if you were a dracula in the mirror maze. Not sure what I was thinking there. I've got no alternarock lines to back me up, either.
