Yes, the term “telekinesis” can be considered a generic synonym for “telekinetic” in the world of comic books and film. One of the earliest examples of this term being used in print was in 1940’s Batman #1 by Edmond Hamilton and Jimmy Palmiotti.
The Batman team is sent searching for the man who killed an alien warrior named Piotr Kruminov. They track the “hero” down and confront him over the fate of one of Piotr’s body parts. Kruminov escapes to another dimension and uses telekinesis to cause Batman’s plane to crash into the ground.

The more serious concern is that when we use the term “telekinesis” in general, it’s used to mean a super supernatural ability. What happens to “real” magic and superhuman abilities if you limit them to the supernatural? For example, if a superhero is an immortal, all power to him. This is a common misunderstanding of the term as well as a common misunderstanding of all supernatural powers.
What about “telekinesis” as a genre trope?
On the contrary, there is a huge difference between being a super hero who can control objects with telekinesis and being a fictional character whose superpower is “telekinesis,” so let’s take a look…
