Review of chapter "A phonecall" from spaceman
It's a small, but interesting start. Tiger and Bunny is a unique Anime and I've watched most of it. I would pick 12 since Tomoe Amamiya/Kaburagi died when Kaede was 5 (she 10 in the series). Xander should have had a chance to know his new mother even if it was seven years.
I vote that Xander being a NEXT, since he deserves a power up after years with the Scoobies as the Everyday-man.
I went on power listing wikia and found a power that suits "The One who Sees" and would help him survive more than Kotetsu/Wild Tiger's "time limited super-strength" or Kaede's power replication power.
Accelerated Probability: The power to see what choice one should make when confronted with a situation, to predict the outcomes of certain situations, and then to accelerate oneself along that path of causality immediately. A sub-power of Probability Manipulation, and a variation of Precognition. A very advanced form of Parachronal Cognition. Capacity: The ability to see all the variables of any situation and predict the outcome. When utilizing this ability, the user sees paths projected in front of them, illuminating possible courses of action. They can then foresee the best tactic, and accelerate themselves along that path. High-level users have been shown to generate lethal amounts of electricity, though it is unknown whether it is directly linked to this ability.
Known Users: Edward (Heroes),Santiago (Heroes), Kaito Nakamura (Heroes), Marcus Ayers (Alphas), Nemo Nobody (Mr. Nobody), Alex Mann (Action Man), Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes), James Moriarty (Sherlock Holmes), King Bradley (Fullmetal Alchemist using his Ultimate Eye), Cris Johnson (Next), and Kaguya Houraisan (Touhou Project)

Wow Spaceman, this is a great review and the type of feedback I was hoping for. Thanks, I really appreciate it.
I think I will go with Xander being 3 years older than Kaede (so starts off 12 and is about 14 by the end of T&B). Xander is just the ideal older brother material. Not that it'll stop him from being mean to his little sister but, eh, siblings, part of the territory.
I'm not sure I want to give Xander a power based off any of his 'nicknames' (the one who sees, white knight, prophecy breaker, etc.) or his possessions (soldier, hyena, demon fish dna). Something that suits him yes but, not necessarily inspired by titles OTHER people gave him. I have to admit that Accelerated Probability does sound like a good idea. I might go with that or a similar power if nothing else has me go 'Aha, perfect!'.
