Havok's plasma powers

#1 Posted by The Torch of Pyr (20 posts) - - Show Bio

Okay...

So I was just wondering, since plasma is an ionized gas that can conduct electricity (I think) would that mean Havok would be able to be absorb an electricity-based attack and control it or add it to his own powers etc? Or would it have an opposite effect, making him susceptible to an adept electrokinetic or someone who controlled magnetic fields like Magneto?

The reason i'm asking is because i'm developing a new character that is a pyrokinetic who can also control heat and plasma. I figured adding plasma to his arsenal would be a way to make him one of the few pyros that can go toe to toe with the stronger heroes/villains and still keep his powers heat based. Plus electric-charged fireballs win.

Please back up your answers with scientific evidence. Thanks

Why would being able to project plasma mean that he can absorb electricty ?
Plasma is a superheated form of gas where some of the atoms present become ionised, so they become charged.
The Plasma is thus conductive and able to be manipulated by magnetic fields.

Thus being a plasma projector, could mean that electrical attacks directed against you are magnified in effect as it's like having a really good conductor between your and the electricity source.
If you faced a magetic field manipulator like Magneto or Polaris, then they could easily block your plasma attacks as their shields would repel the attacks.

I honestly really don't know why I asked if he'd be able to absorb electricity... I gues I was just covering every possibility

But yeah, thanks a lot, definitely helped.

Havok absorbs cosmic radiation. He couldn't absorb an electrical attack or add it to his own powers or anything like that. The only power source I have seen him draw from directly was a star.

Storm would own him.

Random, but I'd argue her case.
