That's good news! Now, I'm off to begin training my eyes to see through
helmets, my legs not to break and to carry me hundreds of feet through the
air, my mind to control several complex mobile dolls, my muscles to develop
naturally in zero gravity, and my fingers to stop typing this.

What superhuman abilities as far as Dorothy, Trowa and Wufei go? They have
none. Wufei was trained as a warrior from birth thanks to being born in a
warrior clan. Trowa is an accomplished acrobat, but that is not superhuman.
And Dorothy? She is just a normal girl...a bit too taken with war, but that
is nothing special either.

Heero is the only one that seems super human, but that is mostly due to
special training. After all, he has been trained from early childhood
apparently to be a killing machine, caring little for his life or those of
the ones who get in the way of him and his target. He may seem superhuman,
but most of the things he does are humanly possible, if one is trained

The only Gundam series that deal with newtypes are the UC ones and Gundam X.
