Perhaps having "nothing to do with ionization" wasn't correct.

What is certain is that Ionic Energy is nothing like electricity. Nothing Simon and Nefaria do resembles electricity. UV, X-Rays, Gamma Rays, Cosmic Rays are all forms of ionizing radiation, and this is what Marvel's Ionic Energy is more akin to.

But at that point, what differentiates Simon and Nefaria from Hulk or all of the thousands of other ionizing radiation heroes and villains (heck, almost everyone in the MU depends on ionizing radiation for their powers)? There has to be something unique about what Marvel is calling "Ionic Energy" or these characters cease being special, and that "something unique" is magical pseudoscience that cannot be explained. This is especially true since people like Nefaria can mind-control anyone with "Ionic Energy." "Ionic Energy" is pretty much "The Ionic Force," just another in a long line of magical things like "The Speed Force" or "The Phoenix Force." or "The Life Force."

I'm not even sure how Electro was able to do that carbonizing the air trick. There just shouldn't have been enough carbon around for anything like that.
