My Hero Academia Cliffhanger Sets Up Bakugo's New Power

My Hero Academia has been pushing Katsuki Bakugo to the brink as the final war between the heroes and villains continues, and the final moments from the newest chapter of the series are teasing that he's on the verge of unlocking a whole new level to his power! The war between the heroes and villains has reached a new gear as following the fights with Dabi and All For One, the latest chapters of the series have revisited how each of the heroes is struggling to do any kind of real damage to Tomura Shigaraki's modified new body and power.

It's been particularly tough for Bakugo as he has not only seen how much further he has to grow in order to stack up to the proper pro heroes, but he's also basically running into a brick wall against Shigaraki. The villain has proven to be so much stronger than what Bakugo can deal with, and while he might be taking a ton of damage and relegated to the sidelines for now, it seems like the cliffhanger might be unlocking a new power within his quirk as his sweat is seeming to be setting off in tiny explosions all on its own. 

Chapter 360 of My Hero Academia picks up shortly after Bakugo was sidelined after taking a major hit from Shigaraki's decay power, and Best Jeanist runs to his side in order to protect him. He sees Bakugo lowered and crouched, and sees some tears falling on his glove and assumes Bakugo had lost hope. But while he tries to motivate him further, he realizes that he misunderstood the scene. Bakugo in fact was still focused on the fight with Shigaraki and is already getting ready for his next move. 

The final moments from the chapter also sees some of his sweat beads turning into small explosions, and as far as we have seen from Bakugo's quirk so far, his sweat isn't ignited until he does so himself. If it's now igniting on its own, it could mean that his explosion quirk is about to evolve. Now it's just a matter of figuring how it will evolve, and whether or not it will be enough to close the gap against Shigaraki
