Quote:Well, we can be sure some survived. Not necessarily all of them.
Quote:True. The most likely cannon fodder is Synapse, I think. Apparently she controls animals and is strong and fast. So why call her "Synapse"? Stupid name. Why give her a sci-fi costume? Stupid look. She's a Golden Age jungle vixen, or could be, except she's a teen. Stupid age.
Quote:Synapse is toast.
They call her synapse because she controls and reads the electrical impulses of all typical brain functions. It boils down to just your garden variety telepathy, but the way they explained it was more neurological/biochemical. She's been able to boost immune systems, paralyze people, turn powers off, and yes, control animals (people are animals). She has difficulty with things that don't have biochemical brains. She's not particularly fast or strong.
She doesn't really have a scifi costume. It looks more ninja than anything, but it's a fairly typical superhero costume.
Golden Age? Jungle vixen? Huh? She's one of the NuHuman characters (humans that just learned they had the Inhuman gene after the Terrigen bomb). The bomb caused her grandfather to turn into some giant plant monster, and she's not too happy with Inhuman things because of that. Otherwise, she's just a normal Hispanic American girl.
