OK, that qualifies, I think, which makes it five.

Some others include the technological singularity of Stross's Singularity Sky, the psychic singularity of Clarke's Childhood's End, nanotech sinularities such as Bear's Blood Music, etc. etc.

Then it's "Death". First appearance in Mort.

EDIT: Just to put things right, the first appearance was in "The Colour of Magic" as per Commander Malacandra's feedback.

Five teenagers, orphans, with extraordinary powers defend Earth and the Federation from an evil ruler and his minions. Their names, please.

If I don't even catch the meaning of the answers, how did I dare put a question in this forum?!? (double facepalm) :oops:
Hmmm, where was that "EXIT" sign?

Nope.

Hint 1:
Actually one of them was grown in a laboratory from a single embryonic cell. That said, his speach being a little peculiar, it is thought that this was a result of his creation.
