The Arkendish gives him unmatched Thinkamancy abilities BUT apparently that limits his power to wherever cosmic G-strings reach (as if that was any limiation to begin with, of course). By limiting where Charlie can reach demonstrates that it CAN be done and that he can be 'stopped. Perhaps this webcomic will end with The Arkendish being placed within the great Temple or a cage of similar material being used to trap Charlie himself.
But Charlie's power is very encompassing. I think the reason the Thinkamancers are all so very on Parson's side may be because he does not have a G-String, being from a different reality and cannot be affected by G-String manipulation the way other people are. Or even if he does, Parson has proven he has the mental fortitude to pull away from being controlled by Erfworld, as evidenced by his ability to cuss now. Or the Thinkamancers "overheard" the Hippiemancer's idea for ending war everywhere, which Charlie would be very against being the ultimate mercenary, and are jumping aboard the bandwagon to oust their own enemy.
But as a measure of Charlie's power...Well, I think the Turnamancy Ending The Turn trick was done by a Three-Caster link of Turnamancy, Thinkamancy, and Weirdamancy to force a turn's end. Remember, Charlie had the link done remotely, but the previous two Three Caster links we've seen all had their hands holding each others. And it required five Master Level Thinkamancers to undo without ill effects.
Charlie did his link remotely and severed it instantly, without backlash, and under his own cognitive judgment (which is perhaps impossible for other linked thinkamancers due to the subsumed mental state). And he still had the Juice left over to have conference calls immediately after. While Charlie does seem to be "Final Boss" material, I would say his proven limitations is that he only has complete domination of the Thinkamancy sphere, as he cannot use Lookamancy and uses Archon scouts, and we have no evidence he can use Foolamancy.
...Though Stanly seems to have control over Rhyme-0-mancy and Shockmancy with his Hammer, using lightning and music at the same time. And Wanda's pliers extend her Croackamancy into the Life realm...what other realm could Charlie's Archendish extend his powers into?
And who else wants to see Stanley and his K.I.S.S. Army do a few concerts at the amphitheater in Gobwin's Knob?
