Optic Blast?

#1 Posted by TheDrifter (26556 posts) - - Show Bio

What does it do? I've seen scans of it blasting off a man's skin and yet I've also seen it push back an entire forrest, but I've also heard it only pushes and does'nt cut or burn......

So, WTF? Does the power varie?

Probably a "depends upon the writer" kind of thing.

I think it's more of a pressure peel on the man's skin.

The beam is a projection of concussive force.

Nice, but why the needles? Wouldn't it hurt anyway?

He was showing off. Had to back up the "all kinds of focus and control" thing by hitting the head of a needle.

It's raw concussive force/blast.

Nope, it's not supposed to anyways.

No.

Has he? I know he has picked a car lock with it before, did not know about welding stuff...

Numerous places that I have looked at all say that it is supposed to be heat less kinetic energy. A concussive blast of energy that he builds up from soaking in the sun's energy and stuff.

Sure, it's not heat less and does not have to be there. All the blast has to be doing is driving the points down into his skin, using precision. Imagine a needle against your cheek and then someone jamming it down. I'd scream too.

My point was that the optic blast does not generate heat.

X-Men Legends is a video game, pix. I'm pretty sure it isn't in 616.

Okay then.

yeah, let's say in the X-Men Legends universe that they do produce heat. I know they did in Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends: he melted a door with them.

as for any welding in 616, say he's just pushing the two objects together until they fuse under intense pressure?
