    Why are we using toxic masculinity catchphrases like simp and "feminize?"

    If Ev ends up with Laura I'm good with it, and if not I'm good with that as well. All I want is for him to realize his potential as a leader and as one of the most powerful mutants on Earth. If Duggan can make that happen then I'll be one happy Synch fan.

    Hmmm, why are Professor X 'ing posters opinions? Long as there's no violent, and/or racist intention adults should be free to express.

Nothing romantic needed necessarily.
    This would work for me. I'm open for a friendship between Synch & Polaris.

The interest of Hickman by the character has been there from the start, across the data pages. His powers lend themselves extraordinary well to his beloved mutant technology concept. Because Synch literally needs other mutants around to use his powers, and he tended to be able to use them in creative ways. For example synching up with Chamber, he was able to fly, something that Jonothon has not done to this day. What will happen when he uses the powers of several Omega? He is kind of a natural Chimera. The fact that he is black is a bonus. I have been reading x-men comics for like twenty years now and I have seen the average white american teenager depicted ten thousand times. I have seen good depictions of black average teenagers twice. And one was this week on Vita's Children of the Atom, for a character I am not sure anyone is going to use ever again. So Synch being alive and in a main team was long overdue.

    Plus this is an appreciation thread. Please, appreciate.
    Using another beings abilities in unique ways separates him from Rogue. Scott Lobdell intended Ev to be potentially one of the most powerful mutants.

    I mean we know only reason Synch is on team isn't because he is black but because he is interesting character but so what if he was there because he is black and they trying to be more diverse. Character get add to teams for dozens of more stupid reasons. It is how they are used after is what matter.

    People are just trying to suck the joy out of Synch being in the spotlight and they can't because Synch is on flagship. And on cover of the flagship book Synch is using the powers of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Polaris at the same time. On a team of powerhouses he is THE Powerhouse.
    I agree totally.

    Rogue is versatile enough to exist with Synch and visa versa. Heck I am excited to see Synch used as tracker his aura gives him the ability to find superhumans and beware if they are trying to sneak up on them. If more creative applications like that appear because they are trying to be different I will be happy.
    A creative writer should have fun utilizing him.

    Using his aura, Synch could conceivably use Laura's healing factor to assist a badly damaged teammate (similar to Iron Fist).

    I'd rather he & Laura end up friends. As far as I'm concerned, his Laura died.

    Neither of those words are toxic masculinity catchphrases, they just got co-opted.

    One thing I have been wondering about Synch is in regards to him synching with Omega level mutants. I mean we know when he synch's with a mutant he get's their power and at times can use the powers in ways the originals haven't, but if he synch's with an Omega does he just get the powerset or does he also get the power level?

    My thought would be that when he Synch's with an Omega then he gets that power level for that power. If that is the case it just makes my mind race considering he can Synch with multiple Omegas. IMO it would pretty much make Synch the most powerful being on Earth without actually being an Omega himself.

    I still want to see him Synch with Multiple Man.
    Calling Wanda a Pretender is Trumpian at best

    Could y'all not kill the vibe in this thread? Synch is empathic, super chill dude. He is Mr. Good Energy/Good Vibes!!! We have many other threads where you can fight and duke it out. Let this space reflect Everett's personality.

    ...and he's a HAWTNESS!
    As far as "new" male characters go...we really haven't had one as fine as Ev in ages!
    We are MUTANT...One people. One tribe. One family...Krakoa and Arakko, FOREVER!!!

    It's always been my understanding that with Everett having intuitive mastery of a synch-ed power, I assumed with that if it was an Omega level he would operate at their highest end of the spectrum of their power. This what I've been running with. I would love to hear a comprehensive analysis of Ev's functional power application.

    Yes, that's all I'm worried about. I don't want their dynamic to be some weird dynamic of Synch trying to get Laura to to like him still while she just keeps acting confused. I'd rather they just not bring it up if they go that route.

    It would be an absolutely travesty and tragic if X-editors/writers refuse to use Sync as one of the prominent characters in the next whatever x-team book
