    I'm sure quite a few folks have noticed this from Derrik Wyatt's blog, or were savvy enough to notice this from the airing of TransWarped, but according to previously noted blog, Issac Sumdac got his white stripe from his first interaction with the protoform Sari. Or, summed up, go here: A Delightful Tedium

    Look under March 20th.
    Did anyone else catch this? I sure as hell didn't.

    I noticed it when I first saw the episode. Pretty neat little detail :D

    That is all kinds of impressive then, I was going "ZOMG baby Sari" during that scene, and noticing little else.

    I thought he got it when he came in contact with Rogue and Magneto, oh wait, wrong white stripe.

    My guess is that's a mark left from the protoform 'snatching' some of his DNA.

    I remember spotting it when I first saw the episode. It's definitely the result of the protoform case taking a sample of his DNA to fuse with the protoform inside. Thus making Sari a techno-organic like Blackarachnia.

    I saw that the first time it aired here, mostly because up until then I was wondering why Sumdac looked weird, and it clicked just before it happened.

    it took dna from his hair using those lightning bolts or whatever it was. and because he had gloves on, dna was taken from hair. that's my opinion.

    The protoform-pod scanned viciously like V'ger did in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
    Scans so powerful, it actually transforms the subject in data.

    Sumdac was lucky it was only the colour-substance in the hair, and not his entire body, hehe. :D

    I keep wondering though, how could an autobot protoform be so small?

    Stress can cause hair to turn white so I thought it was from the shock of seeing what he saw.

    Or Sari is a hair robot.I dunno.

    And maybe all protoforms start out small.

    New theory - Sumdacs hair is it's own protoform.

    Maybe that's where "Oil Slick" came from?
