Tempo

Post by clayford » 25 Jan 2022, 22:32

I recently re-read the Nicieza X-Force run, and it was specifically stated at least twice that Tempo's powers affect people's perception of time but don't actually affect time itself. In more recent appearances, such as her slowing a bomb's timer countdown in Marauders, it seems that she actually does affect the flow of time. Has this change ever been addressed on panel?

No, it's definitely a contradiction. One just has to assume her abilities developed further with time, like Rictor going from a vibration projector into someone with genuine geokinesis.

That always confused me because she would also use her powers to speed up her teammates. Thumbelina, at least, had a physical reaction to it; like she'd break a sweat.
