Here's page 8 of Fusion #9, and Alanna climbs up to chat.

Will Fusion be willing to help or won't she?

Looks like Alanna has been giving this problem a bit of a thought.

Wild theory on X-brothers: first read-through, I thought there were three--X-Ponent, X-Pletive, and Humanity (who I kept trying to change his name to X-Ceptional to fit the theme better :p). Second read-through when I found Fusion here at Comic Fury, I noticed that Grasshopper and Fusion both did not know X-Ponent when he arrived and both (but especially Fusion) are superhero fans. Fusion knows all about Humanity's death and offers condolences.

That's when my wild theory developed, what if there are two brothers not three? Humanity did something that gave the public a heroic death to mourn, but it left him brain-damaged instead of killing him. The impulse to continue being a superhero is still there and he created X-Ponent to match X-Pletive. It is an explanation for why X-Ponent is such a moron but has moments of awesome and why the rest of the superhero community lets him. Or possibly I'm just so tired of the dead family member/significant other troupe; my brain went to the extreme to make it not so. Either way, there it is so enjoy how off base I am.

If there was a third brother(or sister,or cousin)he/she would be named X-plosive?
KLCtheBookWorm 20th Mar 2014, 11:02 AM
X-plosive fits the naming theme, but I guess it would also depend on the power set.

X-Ceptional came to me because I didn't remember the name when Fusion says how awesome he was and offers her condolences. I knew it wasn't right, but I needed a placeholder.

KLC,are you familiar with the Quality/DC Golden Age hero The Human Bomb?

Well X-plosive's powers would similar to his.

Trying to get a bunch of refugees across the border, well I guess this is where the missiles from the cover tie in...

Fusion will probably handle it, she should be lucky that these militias don't have any super powered members of their own...At least I hope they don't.

Militias aren't the only problem, as you'll soon find out.

klc, great theory, it would definitely be better than the typical dead relative thing.

wanting to get them across the border is one thing, getting approval, making the distance, getting the authorization, ensuring the new country keeps out the old one, and then ensuring the new doesn't extradite the refugees at a later date is a whole other issue. i guess wanting it to happen needs to happen first though, so i guess she is on the right track.

Question-did Alanna follow Fusion or did she follow later?
EssayBee 19th Mar 2014, 8:34 PM
Alanna followed her up.
Iamabrawler 20th Mar 2014, 6:49 PM
Wow, I can just say... The art for this comic is amazing. Beautiful. And the story is great, too.
EssayBee 20th Mar 2014, 9:36 PM
Thanks! And glad you're enjoying the story!
Black Rose 20th Mar 2014, 9:19 PM
EssayBee,would you create characters based on friends or family?
EssayBee 20th Mar 2014, 9:35 PM
Well, my wife is Cambodian and doesn't have much of a bridge to her nose . . .

Looking forward to the interview with Adam Conroy.Will his great-great grandfather have a first name like:Ezra, Ezekiel,Asa,Jeremiah,Horst what?!?

Does a rivalry exist with Lord Industries for those many years and will this be an appropriate name for Edward Van-Issac Lord's ancestor: Buford Lord???
EssayBee 22nd Mar 2014, 9:35 PM
I like that name--Buford Lord.

As for Adam Conroy . . . He'll touch on the history of Conroy Tech, which was founded by his great-grandfather (although it was originally known as Conroy Financial until after Adam's father took over).
Black Rose 23rd Mar 2014, 7:55 AM
For the record, Ezekiel is the first name of Lorelei Lyons' father and he's unaware that his mentally challenged daughter is really the super smart Mindmistress,the woman he's after!
