Strap yourselves in for some major back-story in this page and the next one. These pages should fill in a lot of details of stuff that we’ve just hinted at so far.
Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new piece of guest art!
Projects Zeus and Hermes stand out as having been dropped for some nefarious purpose. Everything else has a too small survival rate, but Hermes seems to have been deemed too expensive and Zeus dropped for a freak accident.
Which of course leads my suspicious little mind to wonder if there is a Nazi plant/sympathizer or a stupid greedy arms manufacturer arranging these failures.
You are suspicious indeed, Hertzyscowicz. I’m not necessarily saying you’re wrong, mind you…
“Stupid greedy arms manufacturer”…Prescott Bush?
And the Nazis got the Super Serum correct, well that sucks. So what’s next Project Poseidon for a submariner?
Maybe Project Hades, to develop some kind of Mole-Man digging device?
Seems to me to be a logical deduction. At least for their first few uses they can be devastating shock attack devices.
It is hard to manipulate the body safely to produce “super soldiers” until they crack what DNA an RNA does.
Project Heracles for the Obvious.
Wait! Wait! “Radioactive chemicals”??? I have the feeling that “chemotherapy” is going to take on a whole new meaning in 10-30 years…
(And that assumes that whatever he’s diagnosed with is even treatable.)
Yeah, radiation as a superhero origin has kind of gone out of style. These days, genetic manipulation is where it’s at.
Hmm. Even if she is love with the general — I think I may feel sorry for him.
No, make that especially if she’s in love. Fragile characters and love can be hazardous to health of all those around.
Keep in mind that it is Kate who is calling Agnes “fragile”. I don’t think I’d describe her that way. (But of course, this is based on stuff that you don’t know yet!)
This does not make it any easier not to think of them as cheap Ubermenschen copies made in a hurry…
Well, kind of, though they’re far from cheap.
