Overthrust Stimulation

Used by DELPHI (specifically, Project Fast Forward) to genetically engineer 'super-soldiers', the Overthrust Stimulation is a formula that can advance the human form to a level of capability at which humans can actively engage metahumans, large animals or hostile environments with the ability to survive the encounter.

Qualities of the formulaEdit

The formula provides the following 'physical adaptations for those who are dosed with it:

  • enhances the user's physical form to the peak of human performance capabilities (as defined by his/her own genetic makeup)
  • endows the user with physical capabilities at the limit of baseline-human levels without becoming metahuman. (This includes a significant and noticeable increase in physical attractiveness and enhanced physical senses.)
  • the user will also experience a noticeable increase in mental acuity. (This includes a noticeable increase in general intelligence, and a slightly increased ability in both learning and retention of new skills and knowledge.)

Formula variantsEdit

The Overthrust Stimulation comes in a number of variants (based on the time of effect of the formula). The most common versions of the formula are:

  • Lot Alpha (effects last for six hours with no ill after-effects)
  • Lot Theta (effects last for roughly thirteen months with no after-effects; this is the standard formula that non-metahuman P.O.G.O. team members are dosed with before sent out on long-duration, foreign service assignments)
  • Lot Kappa (an unstable variant used for extreme medical purposes only in cases of individuals with catastrophic physical injuries and/or disfigurements who are deemed too valuable to allow to die at the current time/a mystic or metahuman with healing powers is unavailable in time; the formula's effects will break down in two years and the person will die painlessly)
  • Lot Upsilon (causes a permanent enhancement; can only be used on subjects with O-negative or AB-positive blood types with no trace of scar tissue in their bodies. This means that very few individuals can successfully use this variant)
