No one questions when Soundwave transforms from a Sony Walkman to a 20 foot robot, but the "punch dimension" is EVERYTHING THATS WRONG WITH COMICS

My understanding was that "punch dimension" got that nickname because it's full of a certain kind of energy that's at pretty much the exact equivalent of punching a guy in the face.

Pretty much. Before this thread I thought he was just a tragic character that always shot lasers out of his eyes. Now that I know it's some portal to another dimension that creates even more plot holes I've lost interest.

That's why simple dudes like Wolverine and Magneto are my favorite X-Men because one of them heals real good and the other can move metal with his mind. The interesting stuff comes from the situations that surround them rather then how the powers work.

Scarlet witch changes events even past ones by manipulating probability.

Also, doesn't Piotr derive his added mass from some unknown dimension when he transmutes into Colossus? Hence the energy he used to give off when he transforms (like in the Konami arcade game)? He also gave off pent up energy when he was stuck in his steel form for a while after his facial injury from the X-Cutioner.

They said numerous times if Scarlet Witch had been born anywhere else she would have just normal energy powers. Like Magneto's other daughter Polaris.

Scarlet witch's powers have been retconned by different writers every couple of years.

It was explained as being "chaos magic" for years until house of M declared there was no such thing, only for marvel to reverse that decision and claim yes chaos magic is a thing again, but Strange was lying previously out of fear of Cthon.

AvX most recently declared that Wanda was a universal nexus of chaos energy and a borderline abstract power. It doesn't matter where she was born, that was inevitable.

Her recent solo confuses this even more by creating a "witch goddess" all witches get their power from who is now apparently her mother.

Marvel cannot help themselves from RE explaining scarlet witch every time a new writer shows up because her powers are completely nonsensical.

Forgot about her. I don't think I was reading comics when she was a thing.

Seriously though RE: scarlet witch...she got inverted and turned evil during "axis" and went after Doom.

Doom managed to steal a fraction of a fraction of the power she had and was able to change the outcome of any event that occurred throughout marvel history. He used it to raise someone from the dead he felt guilty about killing.

and this was AFTER she got nerfed after AvX, which itself was after she was nerfed in House of M.

Scarlet witch is ludicrous.

Not getting into those two.

However, now that I mention AXIS, it's weird that people are upset that Captain America is evil now, because this is exactly what happened during Axis to pretty much everybody EXCEPT Rogers including Sam Wilson.

Hell, every last X-man turned evil, took over Manhattan for a month while beating the shit out of anyone human, and set off a gene bomb that would have wiped out all non mutant life on earth if not for...Carnage of all people tanking the blast and "killing" himself.

Strangely, no one remembers this happening.

I was fucking waiting for him to pop up in Days of Future Past in some sort of energy based form before resuming is normal form again and be like "yeah sorry y'all I never absorbed energy before. For like a year I was floating around in the the world trying to pull myself together again. Well guess now I know I can absorb energy."

Fuck, now I want a Darwin spin-off 6 episodes mini series about him pulling himself together after being Bacon-bombed.

Cyclops just firing Kool-Aid™ out of his eyes at such velocity and pressure that it can pierce rock and metal, like one of those sandblasting hoses on super steroids.

You know what, I think that's actually the best explanation for Cyclops' power; it explains why the beams have such force but don't set things on fire, and it also explains where the beams go (they dissipate into harmless clouds of delicious fruit punch).

Some peoples genetics mutate to grow wings. Others mutate to heal faster. Some even mutated to turn their skin into metal.
And then some people mutate so that their eyes open a dimensional rift to an alternate universe that projects infinite energy.

Must be the same dimension that powers Jet Jaguar. Punch punch punch!
