Hello LU Loyalist,
SO I thought it would be fun if we started doing a monthly or bi monthly blog where we analyze parts of the cartoon. Character personality, relationship aspects, powers, how a character may have known something, ect. For the few who have not watch all of the cartoon there may be spoilers.
To start off, and to show what I mean, I'm gonna start the subject of Lexis powers. .
Lately I've been re-watching the cartoon and did it with more of a observant eye. I think it can be agreed that the most elusive and unclear defined powers of the group belong to Danger and Lexi. Lexis brain-blast has been defined by many as a physic blast that generates from the top of her head. That in it's self is a rather loose definition and makes me curious of how much control she has over it and it's properties.
In the episode attack of the Fuzz-z Lexi uses her brain blast to help take out the bridge. If you watch her brain blast takes on a tentacle-arm like form as the camera zooms in on her face as if to show she's concentrating on controlling it. It was quick and never really done again, but it may make you wonder, could Lexi create forms with her brain blast?
Then, in the episode with Black Velvet Lexi fires a brain blast from inside the ship. The brain blast goes through the glass, un damaging it, before taking out the missile. The question is: is glass some how immune to her abilities or can she control what the blast hits? If she chose to could Lexi have a brain blast strike an enemy on the other side of a brick wall while leaving the wall unharmed or is this ability limited to specific materials? Dose glass act as a conductor or filter?
We know her powers can be effected based on surrounding when in the episode In the Deep her brain blast reacted as a sort of shock wave in the water. Did the water act as a filter or a conductor and are there other environmental things that could have extreme effects on it?
In the episode with the Apocazons the power of the nectar acted as another type of filler when combined with the Brain-Blast.
Also bring up the the Apocason episode, Lexi was able to fire a Brain-Blast at the ground have it travel behind the women before exploding. This furthers the question of how much control and functions dose the Brain Blast have?
With the possibility of her being able to form, control remotely, faze through objects, and amplify the power of her brain blast I wonder if the cartoon had continued would Lexis powers have become more evolved to a point where she may have become the most threatening member on the team? it also begs the question of could she have had the same fate of characters in the past whose powers stem from the mind, such as Gene/the phoenix for X-men, where her powers mentally break her down to where she becomes the victim of them?
I always had a hunch that Lexi's powers where some form of Telekinesis.My theory is that she, even by the end of season two, doesn't actually have control over her powers. It just seems like she dose. I think she is actually a telekinesis but sens she has yet to realize that or taped into the ability to control it it comes out as a sudden burst of physic energy lovingly named a Brain Blast. It could also be that the Brain Blast is a build up of energy that eventually needs released. I mean, what would happen if Lexi ever stopped using the Brain blast for a long time? For that matter what would happen to any of the Loonatics if they stopped using there abilities.
I'm also curious as to how much energy it take for her to use her abilities. The Brain is only 2 percent of the bodies weight, but consumes already consumes over 20
percent of the bodies energy. How much energy dose it take to create a brain blast? In the Apocazon episode after she filled the bin up with nectar she collapsed onto Duck. Never before had a Loonatics been seen becoming exhausted from a short period of using there abilities.
So, yeah, that's it. Feel free to comment and discuss. If any one would like to do a LU analyze feel free to tell me or if you have a suggestion for an analyze leave a comment.
