Hi Anzaleth, thanks for adding to my post, but I didn’t
really mean you needed to post onto my branch. I was thinking more like you
could forget my post entirely and focus on the branch you were already working
on...that’s not to say I don’t appreciate it or that it isn’t a good post, it
really is and opens up a number of possibilities it’s just...*groan*...I am
really not explaining this well, let’s just move on...
Why I really posted this is because I had a couple of
questions; obviously I had a number of ideas for this thread when I started it,
some of those ideas will work with what has been posted and some won’t, but
that part of the fun of the addventure, not knowing where things are going next...
That having been said I do want to get something clear in my
head; do you see ALL the superheroes as having been uglified over night, so
that everyone is going to be waking up changed? Or is it just some of the heroes,
with maybe more changing over time?
If it’s the former then no problem, it will just be a matter
of meeting the heroes as we go, if it the later I feel we need to get down a rough
idea how this is working so we don’t work at cross purposes...
For example, it’s established that EVERYONE in the Baxter building
has been changed at once, while so far we have only seen Storm of the X-Men and
Scarlet Witch of the Avengers...
I can see two ways to do this, firstly the “uglification”
effect works like a bomb, detonating and covering a certain area; that would
mean that everyone in the Jean Grey School (the original X-Mansion) where Storm
is based, and everyone at Avengers Mansion where the Scarlet Witch is based has
been transformed, but other places (like the New Xavier School, Avengers Tower,
Avengers Academy...and wherever it is they have all the various X-Teams/Avengers
Teams/Defenders etc working out of) HAVEN’T yet been effected...
Alternately Storm and Scarlet Witch could be on their own,
and will act patient zeros, at least for their particular teams, somehow
passing on the transformation; that would be quite easy for the Scarlet Hag
(love that name by the way) in fact her mutant powers could have been altered,
so instead of channelling “Chaos Magic” she’s channelling whatever energy is
behind the transformation (signified by her energy being a putrid green colour)
so she can “ugly up” anyone she wants whenever she wants...
Of course if we go that way, the fact that everyone woke up
changed in the Baxter Building is a bit of an anomaly, which probably indicates...no
wait I have a better idea, what if someone woke up “uglyfied” and then went
around intentionally changing the rest before they had a chance to get up?
After all we haven’t seen Franklin yet!? Or maybe the source was something that
had appeared in Reeds lab, probably through the Time Platform or Negative Zone
Portal (as it appeared in Scarlet Witch’s magic circle within her “work room”,
a place put aside for her magic studies, and as it appeared through a “Ghost
Box”, a means of travelling the Multiverse, that Storm had been keeping safe in
her room) any way some one finds it, gets zapped by it, then rather than face
being ugly alone goes on a spree with it?
So what do you think? Comments ideas?
