Poor Hamish. He was a very good lab assistant.
At least his poops will be easier to clean up now…
Dunno. Pretty sure he was potty trained before…
And easier to poop out I assume.
He should totally market that. It could save so many monsters and depower so many villains. Not all of them of course, and there is also the problem of supervillains using it on mutation-based heroes. Hmmm… Nah, just keep doing what you are doing.
And yet, all the signs were there. His fondness for shredded paper, the giant treadmill he insisted they hook up to the emergency generator, the way his nose always twitched…
And all this time he thought that the wood shavings was because he had woodcraft as his hobbie.
Besides, he couldn’t remembered when did he hired or interviewed him. He didn’t even have time to ask for a new hire after that mishap.
Soooo, there are chemical mishaps that turn ordinary mortals into super-powered people and turn animals into ordinary mortals. Geez, isn’t there any kind of government regulation that prevents this? Better yet, why doesn’t this scientist let people know about this? He could make a fortune selling it!
Yes. Yes. Government funded. Yes, but they are not.
I think you kind of miss the point of the comic, it’s a crapsack world and the last thing you’re going to see is people worrying about or having to deal with OSHA or any other kind of regulations. If memory serves in regards to this guy not making the chemical cure for mutation available, he’s also the same one who with a chemical spritz turned a pair of cherries into super-sized versions with cute eyes and innocent smiling faces and promptly set about eating the one while the other looked on in horror and his only reaction was to note how tasty it was but had the downside of the face being somewhat squicky. So he’s REALLY not concerned with how helpful that cure would be for others.
Besides, the OSHA agents got turned into guinea pigs.
Then sank into the swamp.
And the pieces burn underwater.
No, no, it’s a Holy Grail reference.
Besides, they would only burn underwater if they were tossed into the Cuyahoga River.
Heh. Lots of things burn underwater.
And the OSHA inspectors were carrying that stuff on them? Kind of ironic, considering what an occupational health and safety issue that would be, no? :-P
Yeah… yeah! They… were carrying it on them! Yeah! Absolutely! That’s it! Of course they were carrying it! Yup! Must be! Uh-huh! They weren’t doused with a cascading Halide transformation chemical! Nope. No sirree!
And the ashes started to scream.
Blame the gnome.
We remember what happened when the government got involved last time, right? Half a dozen G.I.’s with burned-out eyeballs.
He goes though so many lab assistants.
Looks like we’re going to need another Timmy!
It’s sad that so many people don’t get that reference. And I swear, that show had the absolute best final-episode ever. Talk about a downbeat ending.
The final line still gives me chills, when I think about it.
Seeing as I haven’t had a tv since 2005, I don’t get the reference. I was becoming disillusioned with television around that time in any case. So I don’t feel I missed anything…except The Simpsons. Boy, do I miss The Simpsons.
Dinosaurs broadcast from 1991 to 1994. I haven’t had TV service, even a broadcast antennae, since 2003 or 2004, myself. Once the news became completely available online, and I could pick up anything I particularly wanted to watch on DVD, I didn’t see the point.
Mi mimee mi mi!
Not da momma.
Do powers gained through lab accidents count as mutations? I think Marvel classifies that sort of result as “altered humans,” at least in the roleplaying game. The Fantastic 4, Spiderman, and Doc Ock count as altered humans. Actually, Doc Ock might not even count as an altered human, since his powers come from a simple technological graft. Wolverine is a hybrid between a mutant and an altered human.
In science, a mutation is a change in the genetic structure of an organism. No genetic change, no mutation. Technically. MCU they are called enhanced.
I know what a mutation is, but we’re talking about comic-book mutations here.
Super hero comics and games like the ones in the Fallout series work according to the butchered understanding of the concept that was typified in bad 50’s sci-fi. Ei. radiation causes everything to grow to monstrous proportions, glow, and/or get strange powers like mind control, fire-breathing, or lightning projection.
Heh, yep. Also there are more stuff other than DNA and RNA in the cell and that could be affected, so…
Hell, they barely had genetics figured out in the 50’s, never mind epigenetics.
