Challenge TypePersonal Challenge
Category Marvel Universe > X-Men > Xander-Centered
DescriptionXander is a mutant, however he was never actually stressed enough for it to fully activate. That is until the Fertilizer Bomb fails to kill the Mayor. When one of his girls is injured/killed Xander's power finally erupts: The Firestorm is born. What happens after he defeats the mayor is up to you.

Firestorm (based on the original Nuclear Man abilities) has a number of powers based around Matter and Energy Control

Known Powers:
-Super human Strength and Endurance: Can lift 10 tons and operated for a weeks without any sleep.
-Phasing: Firestorm can disperse his own molecular structure in order to pass through solid matter (can only do it to himself and what he is wearing, does not short out electronics like Kitty)
-Energy Absorption: Anything less than Cyclops on full blast is easily absorbed
-Body Resistance: Is largely uninjured by attacks less powerful than an LAW weapon. Is still bruised and knocked around.
-Energy Emission: Can fire Energy blasts comparable to Cyclops' normal Optic blasts.
-Flight: 450mph in air/20,000 mph in Space
-Heat Vision: much like Superman's
-Matter Conversion: Firestorm's unique nuclear-molecular structure allows him control over the structure of matter, allowing him to reshape it into any form desired. Firestorm cannot use this power while he's phased. He can affect up to 25 million cubic feet of material
-Regeneration: Heals about one fifth as fast as Wolverine
-Self Sustenance: Doesn't need to eat, sleep or breathe
-Enhanced Vision: His matter control allows him to "see" patterns in matter, enabling him to perceive heat patterns, as well as see through the use of radio waves and radar:
--UV Vision
--Thermal Vision
--Radio Wave Vision

The DC Firestorm was a fusion of two individuals. Feel free to have Hyena and Soldier boy (In Marvel there are a lot of Soldiers who could be in Xander's head: Wolverine, Sabretooth, Nick Fury, Agent Coulson, Frank Castle, and so on) speak to him openly in his mind.

I would like this to be an X-men Evolution story, but any X-men incarnation is fine. Just please no yaoi for Xander. We already know he is straight.

Pairing Ideas:
Xander would do well paired with most women. He does tend towards smart women with strong personalities. So practically every female in Marvel would get along very well with him.

Other Idea:
Rather than have Harmony die you could have her manifest a mutation akin to long time Firestorm enemy Killer Frost. Having her join Magneto's side would be completely in character for her, at least at first.
