Higgins (w) Siegel (a)
The well crafted art and masterful writing in the first issue sets up a Chi-town superhero squad that has unionized and is out to catch ne'erdowell's.
To your left, one of the superheroes is out to stop a common criminal with some high-tech gizmo's and does so by using... anti-kinetic powers?
1.) What is kinetic mean?
2.) What does anti-kinetic mean?
3.) Are those lines from his hands real or there for show?
1.) Well, kinetic is something that is moving. So, kinetic energy is the energy of something moving or at least being active in a process, which in part will require movement. Having a power based on kinetic energy would allow you to use the energy from moving (this is basically what every living things runs on). We take potential energy and convert it into kinetic energy. For sustanunce, we convert the potential energy found in the molecules we eat, break the molecular bonds using stomach acid and consume the energy from them.
2.) Anti-kinetic, just using the opposite of kinetic or anti-movement. Having an anti-kinetic power would allow some one to redirect or consume kinetic energy. On a basic level, that means anything directed at this character, he could take the energy leaving it useless. This is shown in the panel above. He stripes the guns kinetic energy, rendering it inoperable. Also, he could possible touch someone remove the kinetic energy on a cellular level and leave him or her for worm food. The limitations on the power are not discussed in the issue. Note this character could be unstoppable if no limits are applied.
3.) Lines! Why are their lines? I assume it’s for a visual effect, but would removing kinetic energy produce lines? Actually, it could. If the power comes from the character in the wave fashion we see, as the wave hits the air particles it would cause them to go from a gaseous state to a solid state, which done on a large scale, we would be able to see. This would occur until the wave finally reaches the target.
