--Previous Message-- Very ingenious idea, DoubleK! Sounds very interesting, almost like an ionic Doctor Pym. I would rather see him shoot blasts while in ionic form only, ala Human Torch, and keep that "Ionic Touch", disrupting people's innards, ala Vision. But I would be open to this approach, as long as he doesn't become an ionic Punisher!
: What I would prefer to see, rather than a
