1. Can you explain the differences between Control Chip used by Light and it's operative in season 3, the Starro tech from season 1 and Mad Hatter Nanobots, do all 3 of them have the same results or are their differences in how they work. 2. Does Starro Tech mind control require a magic user necessarily to mind control someone.
3. How exactly does the Mad Hatter's nano-tech work, Is his mind control like total mindless control or is it similar to the technology used in Light's mind control starro. I ask because Livewire, Mist and Shade who were being controlled by Nano-tech still have a personality and had quirks which seem in line with their actual personality for example the innuendo based jokes made by Livewire and how she is often seen smiling or how Mist is afraid of being hit. Does this mean during mind control they retain their personality and essentially are reprogrammed which changes their objective like they have to follow the command but on the inside feel reluctant about doing it because it seemed to me Livewire was enjoying this a little too much.

Starro-Tech does require somebody to monitor and - in essence - remote control the individuals under the tech's influence. Doesn't have to be a magic user. Joker's not a magic user. A control chip is way more primitive, but it does allow someone to give some basic orders that the chipped person must follow. But they'll be fighting it, and the chip doesn't change who the person is - nor does it render them blanks. Hatter's nanobots are a slightly more sophisticated version of a control chip.
