(Appearances: Red Star is the source for Xenothium)
(It's unlikely that Red Star would have provided Xenothium to the outisde world while remaining in self-imposed isolation)

Apparently, Red Star is the source for Xenothium
 
   
 
The most prominent use Xenothium has seen in the series is as the power source of the [[Red X ]]suit and the disintegrator cannon designed by [[Professor Chang]].

Xenothium (pronounced zi-no-thee-um), also known as Xenothium ore, is a fictional chemical compound, used for its molecular properties as a super power supply.

Description

File:Xenothium.jpg
Xenothium is an extremely rare and dangerous compound, so dangerous that even reputable members of the superhuman community like Robin are unable to buy it legally. It is very unstable and thus quite volatile, but this instability makes it highly suitable as a high-output power source. However, Xenothium appears to not be radioactive, since several characters were seen handling it without the protection of a radiation suit. This suggests that the Xenothium's molecular structure gradually breaks down, releasing energy, in a process similar to radioactive decay, though more in a chemical rather than energetic way. Still, Xenothium is considered an extremely hazardous material; the only safe way to dispose of it apppears to let it decay naturally.

The most prominent use Xenothium has seen in the series is as the power source of the Red X suit and the disintegrator cannon designed by Professor Chang.
