Except nobody was buying TK in the first place, but rather ST. In which case, a +50% Cosmic 'Four Color Physics' should work just fine, but may be excessive. Probably in most cases it's just a handful of Rules Exemption Perks.
Yeah, sure, perks are fine and good. But if it's too much of an exemption for a perk in that particular setting and/or if the GM/players enjoy detailed mechanics then alternatives might be wanted. If it's otherwise a fairly realistic universe, which I assume if buildings crumble when you try and lift them, then +50% Cosmic feels like cheating, which it is, because that's the whole point of Cosmic.

TK with Melee Range or Touch Only or something could maybe be cheaper than ST, TK is just the gameplay effect, in-universe it can be regular ol' superstrength, or subconscious TK or whatever.
