    "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."

That's why I agree with you in my previous post : in the MU, there are "Gamma people", "Power cosmic" people, "Ionic" people, "Darkforce" people, et cetera.

Gamma radiation doesn't give to normal people superpowers and green/red skin in real life.
Even if the gamma radiation is the powersource, there was something else involved.
They all had a genetic potential to absorb the energy of the gamma radiation and use it as a powersource.
So "the Gamma powered people" are all "unusual humans" (=mutates in the vocabulary of the Marvel universe).

The same could be said about Ionic people.

    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.

An electromagnetic radiation ?

    What is certain is that Ionic Energy is nothing like electricity. Nothing Simon and Nefaria do resembles electricity.

No, just like nothing Hulk does resembles the properties of gamma radiation, or nothing the Thing does resembles the properties of cosmic rays.

I think that "Ionic people" are accumulators of ionization energy like "Gamma people" are accumulators of gamma radiation.

So, somebody with "electromagnetokinesis" could affect them.

I would use the same logic for a fight between Hulk & Magneto.
