We created superheroes. We needed them in the fight ahead. Huge monsters had travelled been sent across the stars to our planet, and the decimated the land everywhere they went.
We took all we knew in science, from cloning to gene manipulation to radiation. We recruited volunteers to step into our machines and come out different.
They were all different. We tried to encourage super strength, but the final outcome was beyond our control. Some had the power to hide themselves with invisibility or camouflage. Others didn’t work out, becoming ravenous with uncontrollable hunger and metabolism.
We selected our champions. Then, we sent them out to duck and weave, and to fight.
