Here's page 2 of Fusion #9, and it seems someone's keeping tabs on the situation in Darmar.

For those who might've forgotten, last issue, X-Pletive said that he and X-Ponent would have to talk to Brooder (see page 10 of Issue #8).

[EDIT: I edited the text on this page on Feb. 6. Heaven's Gate location was corrected to "Atro City," as established back in Issue #6.]

Does Brooder have a plan to remedy this?
A special serum to use on Fusion to put a block of some kind on her powers AND being unable to talk to Bob? Of course Brooder knows about Bob,what issue was that?

Fusion told Brooder (and Captain Stupendous, Riveter, and Dr. Electric) about Bob during her interview back in Issue #2.

Seeing as, after a fashion, Brooder put her on course to interfere in Darmar, I don't think he's developed an anti-Fusion serum just yet.
Though that's possibly because he hasn't been able to.

Side tracking slightly here, We all know DC's Batman is the kind of guy to have plans in place to disable and stop any superhero who goes rogue.
Oddly, Brooder doesn't seem the type to go to those extremes. I get the feeling he'd just take the simpler route of getting a group together able to defeat said rogue-hero and save his real clever stuff for his actual work against Lord and other real villains.
Am I wrong?

Welp, something with Drunk Duck made me miss all of #8. The RSS feed kicked back in with the Captain Stupendous interview. Hoping this site's RSS feed is more stable.

ComicFury seems to be a lot more stable than the Duck (the main reason this is now the "main" site for Fusion).

so xponent isn't going to go 1 to the 10th to figure out his quest, maybe he will need to go higher.

If Lord Industries ever cloned Fusion like they did Captain Stupendous...

Unless it's not gonna happen?!?

If they cloned Fusion they would get a completely normal girl with the same face as Savunn. Fusion's powers aren't biological, but granted by Bob, an incorporeal trans-dimensional being of pure thought and energy.

Kether, Simon Hawke fan or another source?

I have a question about the title, and the problem is I don't know if you were trying for a pun or not.

"Wind" is one of those words which gives ESL people headaches. Is the meaning you were going for Moving Air? It could also be to tie or bind. There isn't enough context to decide either way and it is bugging me. I'm no grasshopper at multiple meanings and ploys on words.

@Just_IDD: Pretty sure he's referencing an old saying "Don't spit into the wind," so yes, moving air. The other word that's spelled the exact same way is actually a lot less common. I pretty much assume it's a breeze unless I see the words "up", "down", or "around" used in conjunction. On the other hand, "winding" is never a breeze.

Interesting timing what with the major international incident happening at exactly the same time as a small lab accident that killed a bunch of people in the facility where Lord clones superheroes...

Exactly right about the "Don't spit into the wind" reference.

And the office spaces in Monstro City and Atro City are more for carrying out the business end of Lord Industries than research (although there are some lab facilities--as indicated by this news report). The bulk of the research--and especially the genetic work Lord is doing--is at other (and often secret) lab facilities (such as the underground base Fusion, Brooder, and X-Pletive broke into in Issue #4).

What sort of "x"-plination are X-ponent and X-plicitive going to give Brooder?
