Splish splash Heatwave's taking a bath in 3000 degree high carbon steel down at the mill. This is her idea of a spa day. Since she can generate her own heat, she doesn't have to worry about getting stuck.

Holy cow! I know it's not polite to ask but how much does Heatwave weight in her alternate form? By my calculations, molten steel is about 7.8 xs denser than the normal human body. Assuming that Heatwave is a very muscle-dense 5' 9" that would normally be 175 lbs, that comes out to significantly more than 1400 lbs since she's sinking into the molten metal and not simply floating on it!

Oh well! She ain't heavy! She's my savior!

Truly lovely work... far better than mere science would indicate. That 'hair lifted by convection currents' is the wasp's nipples.

dear me, guys.. you are basing her biology on 'mere mortals'...  I would guess she is a bit like superman... when the grime is too much for *simple cleaners*, and other liquids are just NOT hot enough to clear it....

AND heatwave does not want to slog all the way out to the sun...  :) :D :P

Well I'd say that is hot but then I'm wondering if I'm referring to her or the molten metal she is taking a bath in. Question, WHY is she taking a bath in that stuff?

You probably have a thing against elementals like Iceman being able to regenerate, but it might be neat for Heatwave to be able to do something similar by soaking in molten steel or lava. She steps in, and when she steps out, she notices that she's not missing any toes?

Hmmm. Heat isn't an element though. I can see a metal or rock elemental regenerating by stepping into molten steel or lava, but that wouldn't sit right with someone who just manipulates heat.

So.. question. If Heatwave can bathe in molten steel, and apparently melt herself free of it, then why didn't she just melt the knife out of her foot and then sear it closed?

IIRC, the least dense metal would be lithium. Less so than water actually. Admittedly, bathing in liquid lithium would pose other problems, notably the fact that she'd actually sink in it even if trying to swim. Also it melts at only 180C, not ~1000 like what the Steel is near. But hey, it wouldn't crush her lungs! Definitely explode on contact with any mucuous membranes though, since they produce mucuous that contains water. Like her naked vagina, or any that got into her eyes and touched her tears. Or mouth. But hey, she just has to avoid all arousal and not accidentally splash her face, or sweat. Right?

Aaagh... I can't help it... Pedantry Mode Engaged...

Hmm... Density of Molten Steel: About 7000 KG per cubic meter. Density of Human Flesh: Very close to that of water - about 1000 KG per cubic meter. Figure her for an (arbitrary) 60 KG, that gives her a displacement of 8.6 liters - enough to make a shallow dent on the surface.

And now that that's out of my system, I can say that it's a very nice picture.

Hah hah, actually it sounds like if she was able to get sunk in as deep as she is, she wouldn't be able to breathe or she'd even get crushed by the weight of the molten steel. (Which I have also recently learned is the wrong color to be molten and steel. If this picture was totally accurate she'd be floating on top of it and the steel would be glowing white.)

If she manipulates microwaves, couldn't she use them to displace the liquid metal she's bathing in, it would require some insane precision and skill, but I think it's possible.

Now -that- is some serious heat resistance. Love how you showed her hair dancing upward, because with that type of heat WOW would there be a hell of an updraft, ahahah. Normally I'm not all that into Heatwave, but this piece put her back on my radar. Very nice compilation of heat powers in one package. Combined with her size changes with usage of her power... <3

When I saw the image on our left in the SFW version, I thought that the shadow line under her breasts was the underwire left over when her bra burned away, but this version clearly shows it is some kind of shadow, of has the underwire melted as well, leaving that mark?

It was supposed to be a hard shadow being cast upwards from her ribs, but it just looks like shadows from her boobs, even though she's bottom lit.
