Lame power

Does anyone else think we really didn't need another speedster. Unless its gonna only be an aspect of his powers, I think thats just kinda a poor idea.

At least if your going to criticize, come up with an idea yourself, genius.

@kai95:
At least if YOU'RE going to insult him, you could use the correct form of YOUR. 

@jordama:


I have to agree, that as one of the oh-so-coveted and highly anticipated Five Lights mutants, his powers should seem a little more.....impressive? 
But speedsters ususally have an out in the "powers you've seen a hundred time" category: versatility. 
Characters like Flash and Quicksilver have made a great career out of using their speed in interesting and unique ways.  
I suppose we'll just have to wait and see what becomes of him.

I know, hopefully they have a good reason for him having that power.

So....when Hope touched him, did he gain control of his power or are we going to watch him die as every time he uses his power he experiences a month to a minute of time?

I'm kinda sick of speedsters. But I do like that his power has some side-effects.

Marvel doesn't have many speedsters.  I'll agree it's not an original power, but it's not exactly an over-used power... it's rarer than the multitude of reality warpers & the plethora of telepaths.

Atleast when they made Speed they gave him a twist. So far Gabriel just runs fast. Northstar can fly and has blast powers when combined with Aurora. Surge has electrical powers that give her her super speed.

It's definitely not an original power but I think it is a bit early. Maybe later his powers will change and we will see him doing different things.

I don't like the five lights in general, except maybe Kenji or Idie

Tiem Manipulation is more interesting than super speed... but it means that he'll physically age faster than everyone around him.

So they did make him more interesting :D 
 
And I like the idea of him ageing quicker.

He's more original than some of the other lights, like Idie (someone who can control fire and ice... I know there are others. But I just can;t think) And the other one with like the feral personality or whatever?

Idie: Crux and even Tempest (Angel Salvidor) 
And the Feral one is Teon

So is kinda like Zoom but not as powerful and ages while he uses his time manipulation abilities.

Hope he doesnt die of old age or lose his hair like he said... hopefully he was just joking.

@jordama: I wouldn't say he was just another speedster, his power is more akin to Zoom in that he is not just fast he affects the time stream around him to make it look like he is going fast

Sorry, My comments were from when he was originally introduced. before they gave the twist of time manipulation.

Funny how he's gone from a potentially lame character to one of your favourites ;) But I guess his power is 'lame' to him, anyway... aging rapidly has got to be a real downer.

@xerox_kitty:So he is aging everytime he uses his powers now? I know he aged a bit before Hope stabilise his powers but I haven't notice anything like this after it. But granted I have only read the first four issues of Gen Hope so far.

@ComicMan24: Sorry, I don't know the exact details. I gave up on Gen Hope too. I'm sure Jordama will keep you up-to-date though :)
