Time to finally explain what the heck is going on with each of the Lights' powers! Doctor Nemesis, take it away...






Interesting point of nerd speculation here: Would this mean that Gabriel doesn't get all the secondary mutations that someone like Quicksilver would? Increased reflexes and perception, lung-strength, eye-fluid viscosity, skeletal resilience, etc...



...y'know, I don't think I'll be mentioning that to him.

At a gues Gabriel wouldn't get those abilities, no, since his body doesn't need them.

I'm slightly baffled by "You're speeding up, but you're not running any faster", in objective terms, what's the difference?

One of 'em is the water he's touching is apparently a bit sped up too, and so it reacts to his weight at his speed, not ours.

Most of the differences are pretty minor.

That's kind of harsh, even if Nemesis did dunk him.

-Would this mean that Gabriel doesn't get all the secondary mutations that someone like Quicksilver would? Increased reflexes and perception, lung-strength, eye-fluid viscosity, skeletal resilience, etc...-

Yes and no. He doesn't have extra lung strengths but he has extra time to breath, his reflexes aren't faster but stuff that attacks him is relatively slower, etc..

He appears to be reacting to the racist crack rather than the dunking.

Either way, I find it hard to object to any course of action that provides that awesome sequence of facial expressions.

Presumably he wouldn't need all the fan-wanky secondary mutations to deal with all the inconvenient physics factors like wind resistance and the like. However, he would need a secondary mutation to prevent him from shaving every five seconds and wearing adult diapers by lunch time, since his personal timeline is sped up to an unkown degree and as a result, much more time passes for him than for everyone else.

As a side note, I thoroughly enjoyed the much needed smackdown of Dr. Nemesis. A character that solely speaks in quips and catch phrases is surpremely annoying.

Dr. Nemesis has quickly become a favorite character of mine since he's been (re?)introduced. He's just that kind of a genius that's such a jerk that it's hilarious.

During the Golden Age, Dr. Nemesis had one of those very generic personalities most Golden Age heroes are settled with - passionate about justice, confident in his own righteousness, full of quips, etc. When Roy Thomas revived him, he made Dr. Nemesis/Dr. Death an arrogant mad scientist. When Fraction reintroduced him, he took away the villainy and amplified the arrogance and the quips up to 11.

If you are curious, this is what Dr. Nemesis was originally like:

The powers are a bit underwhelming, but they'll make a good team for Hope. Not that she needs one. Girl is WICKED overpowered. (And this is from a Jean Grey fan.)

Hmmm, amazingly confused.

If he's slowing down time how does that work?

If it's localized to himself then wouldn't he be indeed able to run over water since he's relatively going so fast?

If it's some kinda bubble around him wouldn't he be essentially useless since the bubble would "speed up" whoever he's fighting too?

If he's only slowing down his reaction to time, the water isn't slowed down at all. All he's managed to do is make it so he gets drenched really quickly.

And yet, I still have virtually zero interest in any of these characters or their powers (well, Idie's is kind of cool).

I've said it before, but, I was more interested in the Inferno-babies and their powers from the recent New Mutants arc, just from a few pages of their appearance than I have been about the Generation Hope crew in several issues.

These are the first five mutants after a drought of years. Did they have to go so... BORING with their concepts? Yet ANOTHER feral wild character. Another speedster (sort of... yeah, he may be a time manipulator but unless it actually comes into play in a signficant way, it's roughly the same thing at this point). A girl who can fly and react fast and stuff. An energy projector (who does have a bit of a neat twist).

They're not great shakes in the personality department either, not yet. They're saddled with the annoyingly vague and overpowered Hope as the center of the book that they're all satellites hovering around.

Welp, the black girl's powers sound interesting.I'd wonder if it'd just be the ability to manipulate temperature or to manipulate heat/energy in general. My thermodynamics/chemistry/quantum physics classes state that would have fascinating applications

The Mexican guy's * powers seem like what Hunter Zolomon's started off as. Not a speedster himself, but can manipulate time to make it seem so.

*I'm assuming based on the Speedy Gonzales insult from Nemesis, i my experience that's generally a slur/stereotype associated with Mexicans; apologies if I'm wrong
