It was more akin to Polaris's secondary mutation -- assuming a single augmented form with greater size, strength, and musculature than her default form. She could not consciously or variably manipulate her size, though.
Thanks.

The characters Samurai and Kamikaze has some sort of explosive touch ability but I've never seen it actually used, can you explain what is was?

Kamikaze created an explosive discharge that he triggered on impact. The impact part was necessary, as Warlock was able to smother Kamikaze's power by holding him aloft in techno-organic hands reshaped as a cushioning air bag.

Samurai only presumably has the same ability, since he and Kamikaze were only retroactively established as two different people.

Does Adrienne Frost have telepathy? In a Generation X issue, she trapped Emma and the Gen-X kids in a psychic illusion.

It was never fully explained how that happened. Adrienne explicitly had new teleportation hardware in that issue (also unexplained) -- it's possible she accomplished it through technology.

Is there a PD on the Peacemonger (Talmadge Cobbleskill)? He was in Marvel Comics Presents #27.

When dudes around him be hatin', my boy gets swoll.

But, much like the internet, he loses all power when confronted with rational discourse and a nuanced critique.

(But seriously, he was a one-off character -- there's no depth to describe in his power.)

Cool. Can you provide PD's for the Ebon Seeker and the Geometer?

The Ebon Seeker assumed the properties of a black hole during an accident in interstellar travel. His body absorbed ambient matter and energy, becoming increasingly large and even more dense, warping spacetime while having uncharted strength and durability. The distortion effect created by his presence could absorb atmosphere, light and gravity as well as nearby physical objects or directed attacks. His body mass did dissolve over time like Hawking radiation, causing him to shrink after extended periods of not "feeding". Black tendrils of radiation trailed from his body as he dissolved, or he could mentally control these tendrils to actively reach out into his environment to grab and retrieve specific objects for absorption.

The Geometer was an angular crystalline being from the dawn of time who used a Lathe of Perfection to manipulate his environment. This device conducted a form of metamorphic force that could manipulate matter and energy for him. The geometer was obsessed with a mathematically perfection equation for the universe, and so the effects he made on matter and energy typically changed them into symmetrical constructions.

One of the comics panels included in Velocidad's spotlight made me wonder: Is he aware of the accelerated time when he uses his powers? Like, in his argument with Transonic that 4 hours burned 3 days off of his life. Did he actually consciously experience that as 4 hours or 3 days? Or does he just know the ratio by this point and did the math?

I think he must have consciously experienced it, to a degree. He made a similar statement to Wolverine right before he died, that they hadn't seen each other for years when it had only been a month.
