Nitro (Marvel) explodes in a populated center.
The power to
let loose an explosion from their body and potentially recover afterward.
The user builds up immense energy and pressure within his body, and then literally causes themselves to explode. One with this ability usually can vary the power of the explosion after some practice; from simply blowing open a door to nuclear and atomic explosions.
Some can simply blow up portions of their body, like their fist or their leg, and then reassembling them afterwards. If the person used the fist or leg as a punch and then blowing up their hand upon contact giving them one hell of a punch.
Some have their body become vapors as they explode, then reform. Others have their body fall apart, where their body recollects itself. It is also possible to use this as a last-ditch attempt, where they will die after that, but collect energy and pressure like other users.
Some users cannot regenerate unless the user uses all known body energy.
Some users cannot regenerate if part(s) of their body are separated post-explosion.
Some users cannot regenerate at all, making this a suicidal, one-time use ability.
May count as a sacrifice or a last resort.
