Prologue

At the height of the Cold War, during the search for more advanced weaponry, a large corps of scientists had dedicated themselves to inventing the best bomb possible. With the years and decades, as the original scientists retired and new ones took their places, the goal remained the same.

In 1981 however, a young physicist by the name of Dr. Daniel Cooper had concluded after much testing that:

"The best bomb possible should be human."

When he had presented his theory to his fellow researchers, he had been vehemently repudiated and declaimed as well violently applauded and congratulated.

The debate around this controversial subject raged on for a year and ended only with the schism of the corps.

The ethical group then abandoned the research of weapons altogether while the one led by Dr. Cooper continued on their path to create a human bomb. The higher stages of government kept themselves well-informed of their progress.

As well as his idea had worked on rodents and small animals, they soon realized it would not be so simple on a human being. They had tried at first to clone humans to find out it was harder than it seemed. The idea of building an android was quickly cast away. When they settled on using orphans, most of the infants died in the radiation process and the ones who survived died as toddlers.

When, in 1989, the Soviet Union was definitely dismantled and the world was brought out of the Cold War, Dr. Cooper and his disheartened associates believed they would be forced to discontinue their research. It would have happened had they not received the visit of a very important man.

The President of the United States had personally come to discuss the research with Dr. Cooper.

Of what was said, the most vital sentence was:

"America might not have the Soviet Union as

its sworn enemy anymore, but ten, twenty

years from now, who knows? We might

still need a human bomb..."

Hence research persisted, aided with government money and absolute silence.

Finally, in the early nineties, three infants taken by Social Services survived the age of the three and therefore became the first human bombs.
