Why isn't Negasonic incinerate immune?

I was playing around using Sunspot and noticed she's taking incinerate damage. How? I know this a game and not everything will be logical or make sense, but Negasonic's DNA is a chamber of fire. She combusts. She should be incinerate immune. If Kitty Pride can be incinerate immune simply because she has a dragon *like she's Daenerys Targaryen or something 🙄*, shouldn't someone who projects fire out of their whole body be?? It's not even listed as an immunity in her profile.

    because her power is energy manipulation, her body is not made from energy, it's like bishop who power will inflict incinerate, but he himself not immune, because of organic body

    That's what happens when you play with fire

    Or even take 0 damage from incinerate will be fine like for Diablo he takes 0% damage from poison

    Or even good...When suffering from Incinerate, She takes 0 damage & Increases attack Rating by x & Incinerate Potency by x%
    That would be great!

    Human Torch, Sunspot, NTW, Sunfire, and Chamber.

    Synergy - incinerate immunity applies to all.

    In another thread about the exact same thing, it was brought up that while electric eels produce electricity, they are still very vulnerable to electric shocks. The ability to create something doesn't make you innately immune to it.

    I don't understand it lol. Night Thrasher is "incinerate immune" because of special padding....
    From the original Night Thrasher comic back in the 2000s (yes, I'm old enough to have read it, the first time round) Night Thrasher is Incinerate immune because his (non-metal) armour was specifically designed to let him fight and beat a pyrokinetic mutant called Torch. Before that, he didn't wear armour.

    That’s nothing new around here!!! Ghost Rider wasn’t always incinerate immune despite being constantly on fire, I’m pretty sure Mephisto wasn’t either until they updated him. But best of all was Iceman that despite being made entirely of ice wasn’t immune to cold!!! They all got updated eventually so she probably will too when they decide she’s OP and needs a “rebalancing”!!

    I don't understand it lol. Night Thrasher is "incinerate immune" because of special padding, but someone who has fire for DNA isn't. If you're creating a champ who can create, manipulate, and become an element, then their immunity to that element should be one of the first things thought of.

    Maybe it's a slight oversight and will be fixed.
    True fact, fire destroys DNA

    Give her immunity and take away countering bullseye! Fair trade

    Idk her power but she releases some kind of energy which causes things around her to catch fire? In that case she must have at least some resistance to her own powers of she'd burn her own skin while using her powers. Her cells would be on fire.

    And dormammu is made of fire and not incinerate immune, Wolverine has adamantium claws but can’t bleed luke cage, absorbing man isn’t #metal despite being made of uru, this game never had consistency or realism bud, get used to it

    this game never had consistency or realism bud, get used to it

    The game tries to be consistent to its own rules, but it is not nor does it even want to be a simulation. The effects in the game are intended to evoke rather than reproduce, because actually attempting to reproduce all effects with either comic book precision or actual physics precision would make the game too complicated.

    Take incineration. The game uses incineration typed damage and attacks to represent fire, laser beams, plasma energy - all kinds of things that behave in completely different ways in the real world. But they are all "incinerate" to make things simple for both the game players and the game designers. Bleed is another example. In the game bleed is associated with breaking the outer skin and causing blood to leak out of the body, like champions were water balloons. In reality, people can bleed to death all the time without their skin being broken or punctured in any way. When King Groot hits you with one of his tree trunk arms, the most likely result is death from massive internal bleeding, but King Groot does not deal bleed damage.

    This isn't some weird limitation of the game, the game would be almost unplayable for most people if it actually tried and succeeded to differentiate all of these real world interactions. In a fighting game with attacks that come from everything from bullets to cosmic energy beams to interdimensional radiation, both consistency and realism have practical limits.

    Negasonic's abillities revolve around "absorbing and manipulating radioactive energy." The phrase "radioactive energy" has no real meaning outside of comic book physics, so claiming that it should be "common sense" that she would be immune to incineration damage has no foundation.

    Rupture makes more sense for KG
