Write Ups: INVASION!



I've always liked Invasion! It is a solid representative of everything that made comics great back in the days before the Great Serious Realistic Darkness Crisis Crossover swallowed the entire medium. It was over-the-top fun with plenty of humor and action. Reading it gave the impression that this was a world where literally anything could happen at any moment. It's a shame modern comics have lost that...

GENE BOMB [BODY: 8, Power Reserve: 10, Poison Touch: 15, Neutralize: 25, Mutation: 25] This bomb only affects humans possessing the meta-gene. Once detonated, it adds its Power Reserve to the victim’s APs of power, causing them to operate wildly and out of control for several hours. After that, its Neutralize and Poison Touch take over, rendering the target powerless and dying. An antidote was created that cures this effect. Once cured, the Mutation effect finished up, either returning the target’s original powers, altering them, or activating the meta-gene.
