Which is why it's not fair for Neutralize to dupe, but it is for any ability where the point cost of the abilities duplicated is accounted for.

A creative player could keep an enemy around as a "battery" to use for "free" abilities. That enemy wasn't going to assist you anyway, so removing their powers may net you more than you're paying. Furthermore, depowering enemies during a fight even if you don't claim them for your own is usually a fight ender. It tends to be much more powerful than paying extra to do what someone else does.
