Energized Blood Bullet - "EBB"

The one weapon the clandestine group SYNAI has in its war against superhumans. Emitting an energy upon a frequency than cancels out the powers of its targets, EBB is the one weapon they have against telekinetics, magnetizers and a host of superhuman criminals working to destroy the world.

  • Scratch the previous ideas. EBB still exists. So does SYNAI. But let's skip the end of the world stuff, that's stupid.

    SYNAI's primary duties are to take down those people exhibiting powers and using them for ill purpose. Thieves with the ability to phase between walls. Murderers who can kill without laying a hand on people. Con artists with the gift of absolute charisma.

    SYNAI is currently working on an entirely electronic based version of energy disruption that would negate villainous powers, but for now they're forced to rely on the constant cloning and use of Stella Cells, carried in a blood formula in the tips of their bullets. The energy exhibited makes them immune to interruption by various forms of powers such as telekinesis. Upon impact, the tip of the casing bursts apart, releasing the Stella Cells into the body and negating the villain's powers for up to several hours as the blood filters into their system. This allows enough time to put the culprits into specialized holding cells.

    The walls of SYNAI throb with a constant stream of mass produced Stella Cells in order to suppress the use of superhuman abilities while within the walls of the facility.

  • Why can't agents use EBB suits if they can pump the stuff through the walls of SYNAI? Thus forming an immunity to these powers. I mean it's creepy to think of guys running around in suits that are pumping mutant blood but...

    Maybe the blood needs an electrical charge that can't be feasibly provided on a long term basis?

    Maybe that's one of the functions of their guns. The firing mechanism creates the electrical current necessary to oh-so briefly charge th blood in the tip of the bullet, thereby generating the bullet's anti-power properties.

    And what about these Stella Cells? Who was Stella? A mutant too?

  • Stella Waters, born 1919, died 1934. At one time her blood was conceived as a potential cure for all people with superhuman abilities. At the time of her death, her very prolific cells were harvested for further usage using blood as a suspension and delivery method. Initially these cells were intended to counter the slow rise of mutant gifted people (See: woman pushing a penny with her mind) and the cells were allowed to propagate tens of billions of times, creating a vast reservoir from which to treat the superhuman population. Unfortunately, permanent grafting of the cells into individuals created a crisis in the body, creating numerous side effects. These began as signs of fatigue, lack of awareness, loss of coordination, loss of organ functions and eventually death. The transplating of Stella Cells into a superhuman in the population was considered a death penalty, but the temporary transfusion of Stella blood on a weekly basis suppressed various powers enough to keep the superhuman population operating on normal levels with the general population. This suppression was not always 100%, leading to a number of intellectual geniuses, uncanny politicians and unbelievable sports stars that the population simply thought were amazingly gifted. That they had powers was beyond comprehension. However, the number of reported cases began to multiply. The vast majority of individuals were able to be treated with blood transfusions, but as the numbers grew, so did the intensity of the powers. People were no longer simply slightly stronger or faster, no longer gifted with only genius or the occasional telekinetic or telepathic talent. Powers were now exhibited in individuals at heightened levels. Superhuman strength rose to tremendous proportions, telepathy became a real and projected danger that could see into people's minds from miles away.

    Then the really dangerous powers began to manifest, and a classification system became necessary to track those in the population who were dangerous and who were not. A distinction was made between those with lethal and nonlethal powers, nonlethal including low levels of telekinetics, superhuman strength, regenerative capability, invisibility, teleporters, and the muddled concept of absolute charisma. These were called Deltas.

    Then the class of lethals came into play in rising classifications of Gammas, Betas and Alphas. Mid level telepaths, telekinetics, and super strengthers typified the bottom tier of lethals. Higher were those with high degrees of telekineses, mind manipulation, and environmental manipulation. These could include those with the ability to manipulate nature and the surrounding environment, or alter their own body composition to some degree. At the highest levels were those rarely seen who could create energy waves, nuclear fission, portals, environment manipulation of extreme degree, total telekinesis or telepathy, and others.

    Despite a century of research, EBB, loaded with Stella Cells, remains the one weapon effective 100% of the time across all classifications of super normals.

    And then this happened?

  • Lol no. That world is too crazy. I hate X Men though.

    Dude, where is all of that from ?

    Did any of them change into giant lagomorphs destroying the city in search of corn dogs?

    Huh?! When did Beast become a Na'vi?

    We can only hope this happens!
