Clash of the weirdo energy super heroes! Dr. Mirage (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Life_of_Dr._Mirage) is made up of necromantic energy. As I have stated in prior posts, the Valiant universe is more positivistic than the DC universe and basically Dr. Mirage is a ghost with a pseudo science explanation that is a little better than the one provided by Ghostbusters but not by much.
In this version of science, Ghosts are made up of type of energy and all the energy logic we have in natural science applies to ghost energy variously called etheric, psychic or astral energy. For the record, most traditional physicists hate this kind of New Age energy logic but what do they know?
Wildstorm (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wildfire_(comics)) is made up of antimatter energy, technically an exotic rather than weirdo energy. DC has a plethora of beings made up of pure energy but most of them are made up of electricity which is a pretty mundane energy than an exotic/weirdo energy like antimatter. How many electrical devices do you have in your house? Plenty but unless you are an alien I doubt you have any devices powered by antimatter much less necromantic energy. Even Superman went the electrical energy being route briefly (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman_Red).
There are also beings made up of nuclear energy such as Firestorm and Valiant’s own Dr. Solar. Nuclear energy beings are not as common as electrical energy beings but still more common than beings of stuff like necromantic energy or antimatter energy. Anyway, the electricity in your house may ultimately be from nuclear energy making this type of energy mundane.
Wildstorm isn’t the only DC weirdo energy being. Negative Man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negative_Man) has a negative energy being inside of his regular body, host body, technically. Negative energy fills the weirdo energy part since like necromantic energy I have no idea what negative energy really is but he isn’t a being of pure energy like Dr. Mirage and the Negative energy being can only exist for 60 seconds making him no match for Dr. Mirage.
Being made of pure energy has many advantages regardless of if the energy is mundane, exotic or weird. You don’t need to go to the bathroom, eat, sleep or even need oxygen and you are probably immortal but generally you don’t have a sex life either and that bother’s the like of Wildstorm. The best of both worlds is being able to switch back and forth from having a regular body to having an energy body so you can have sex at home but turn into pure energy when needed as a crime fighter and some lucky DC beings can do this.
Dr. Mirage blasts Wildstorm with necromantic energy and nothing happens. Wildstorm blasts Dr. Mirage with anti-matter energy and nothing happens. Turns out the two weirdo energies have no affect on each other whatsoever. This is clearly explained in chapter 13 of the weirdo physics book but I guess these guys dont have that book. Go ahead and ask your local high school teacher “what happens when you mix antimatter energy with necromantic energy?” and see what sort of answer you get. This blog is becoming more and more popular so this situation may very well happen and I apologize to high school physics teachers all over the world ahead of time. After an hour of this they get bored and decide to call it a draw and discuss what it’s like to be a being of pure energy or not.
