"Purity" outbreak.


Yesterday an unidentified flying crystal-like object crashed into the ocean destroying the East end bridge in the process. On the ship was an unidentified protoplasmic organism composed of nanites dubbed sentient in nature. A green lantern had attempted to capture it but it fled into the ocean.

Today, star labs has recovered the creature. A group of scientists led by Dr. Evan Kyle, managed to manipulate the creature's mindless state by introducing a human tumor to see how it would react. To their surprise, the creature broke down the cells and absorbed its mass; they believed they could cure cancer with this "entity", unbeknownst to the fact the creature had taken on the ability cancer has. It learned how to cause rapid cellular regeneration and a cancerous zombie like state where the foe was left spewing up rage plasma. 5 hours after initial exposure, the entity caused the deaths of the entire team of doctors other than a sole meta-human that had been spared from an untimely death.

When word reached outside of metropolis, the CDC had to get involved, so did the press, news teams, even superheroes. According to the survivor, who was left gravely injured by the attack of, I quote, "Superhuman zombies."

This isn't exactly something normal people can deal with. It was going to cause mass spread panic if someone with powers doesn't get involved. It would be easily mistaken as the keeper's new virus, but this is just. . . Bizarre on all accounts.

According to the CDC the information they had managed to gather from examining the victims are the following.
quote:

the virus "plugs in" and activates the 'junk' DNA in its victim, resulting in several biological changes that create (and recreate) sentience within the infected creature's cellular makeup. It acts by affecting the protein encoding regions of the promoter introns in each cell. As a retrovirus, it contains both RNA and the reverse transcript enzyme, allowing it to insert its own genetic codes into the host's cells. It enters, re-purposes and changes the cell, replicating previously dormant non-coding segments of the organism's DNA.

The infected appear to only extract genetic material and return it to what they assume to be "the source". The [sign in to see URL] percent.

The nanites act as a bacterial organism entering a host's cells. More often than not, these changes are too drastic and [sign in to see URL]% of all infected organisms die from massive organ failure and cell saturation. However, few variants have yielded other beneficial results, endowing the infected organisms with incredible superhuman genetic prowess that greatly increase their natural abilities to levels far exceeding human capability.

The .01 percent that has miraculously come out unscathed is a child that is living among the infected humans. The CDC has named him "Ulfhoinn", the only existing sentient life form to receive beneficial effects. Although, this "Ulfhoinn" is also displaying the power to absorb the infected, likely gaining power from them.

INFECTION
The virus is highly contagious and can infect organisms through a multitude of means:


Physical Contact: If a non-infected person is bitten or scratched by an Infected person, or a "Super zombie", they will become infected so long as the scratched/bitten is a metahuman or alien.

Exposure: Coming into contact with a "Super zombie" or a Hive (The current hive being star labs) can result in the infectious agents spreading to nearby humans.

Rage plasma Contact: Infectious bodily fluids and materials are capable of infection through open wounds. The subjected rage plasma is similar in all ways to that of a red lantern's blood.



((OOC: The organism that started this has "evolved", and is mistaken as the .01 percent code named Ulfhoinn. I decided to make an event to progress Ulfhoinn as a character, i hope you can join!

If you want to join, please post below your character, and if you want to add onto this plot with an even larger description, please post below as well!))
