Here's page 6 of Fusion #9, and X-Pletive doesn't seem to be too pleased with Brooder. And X-Ponent seems to have a different interpretation of Brooder's name.

Hmm, I believe X-Ponent is right - Brooder will do what is right

Looks like X-Ponent hit the nail on the head!

I often don't expect X-Ponent to be more than a doofus. I keep getting proven wrong.

I very much like how X-Ponent knows what's what. He's demonstrated several times that you don't need to have powers to be a hero.
Xade 4th Mar 2014, 8:31 AM
very nicely thought out on X-ponet's part. you dont need super powers to be a super hero. Often you just need to have a super mind and the super wisdom to know when to use it

@xade sadly saying 'one to the power of . . .' does not convince people you have those qualities, and will cause them to doubt it even if they do know you do.

I am now convinced that X-Ponent is trolling his brother. He may not be as capable as Brooder, but he can throw a mean trash can lid. That scene plus this one make me think he just enjoys making his brother groan. I bet he tells bad puns out of costume a lot.

Glad to see everyone seeing a spark of something else in X-Ponent. His and X-Pletive's story (and backstory) are important parts of the overall story (and you've had snippets revealed here and there already), so you can expect to be seeing a lot more of them.

Well, in past issues Fusion talked abour X-Pletive's other brother... It would seem that X-Ponent has some of him in himself.

Despite his exterior,deep down inside is Brooder really concerned for Fusion?

ha, great work going 1 to the what ever to figure that out. i still think xponent is a dofus, though now i no longer think he is a moron. i am guessing the one to x schtick is his way of showing that super heroism is not beyond the abilities of non heroes, which is something that everyone seems to forget. i think he might end up being my favorite character, though will still laugh at his 1 to the x stuff.

EssayBee if you want,maybe have some guest artist to render Fusion if you want to take a break or something. Look at the Dasien comic...! :)

That was unexpected insight. I have a theory on the X brothers, but I don't know if wild guessing is acceptable.

Since Fusion hasn't been left all by her lonesome, speculation time as to who her back-up could be. Most likely it's a black member we haven't been introduced to yet. But then Dandy-Lion has ties to the rebels.

Still, the emotional toil on Fusion is sure to be high since she'll probably have to stay with the refugee group until it crosses the border to safety.

Wild guessing is acceptable. It's always interesting to see what clues readers pick up on and how they think things will play out. I, of course, probably won't comment on speculation to avoid spoilers; however, if speculation is too off-base or misses certain points, I might point those things out (as I've done a few times in the past).

As for your last two paragraphs . . . You'll appreciate the next scene (starting next page).
