Artificial Evolution Achieved, Used to Kill Mutants and Not Cure Cancer

Dark Reign: The List - Wolverine #1, cover by Esaad Ribic

A recent appearance of "The World" in the Dark Reign- The List: Wolverine reminded me of some misgivings I've had since "The World" was introduced in Grant Morrison's New X-Men run.

To explain, "The World" is a dome structure created by the Weapon Plus Program (the original program Weapon X is derived from) to achieve artificial evolution. Within the confines the The World's dome, Weapon Plus scientists are able to move time forward at an extremely accelerated rate. Based on this, the scientists in Weapon X are able to artificially manipulate the course of evolution and directly change the course of how organisms develop. They can selectively breed individuals to create new strains of DNA as they see fit. These are the kind of things that can be achieved when you are a secret evil organization with no concerns about morality.

Now I just think it's interesting that with all this technology at their disposal, Weapon Plus decided to create a mutant-killing superhero team as their goal. This seems somewhat natural since mutant extinction is the entire goal of the program. Weapon Plus wants to create super-soldiers and murder mutants. But this seems somewhat short-sighted since artificial evolution has billions of uses. They could examine disease resistances, the origin of genetic disorders and traits, and cure every ailment that humanity has ever suffered.

But what does Weapon Plus actually use artificial evolution to do? Why, the decide to make an anti-mutant superhero team which will eventually murder mutants live on a reality TV show. Thank you writer Grant Morrison. At least the fine people at Weapon Plus decide they will use their discovery to make money (the action figure rights alone to a real life superhero team would be incredibly lucrative).

Furthermore, The Dark Reign: The List one-shot seems to suggest that since the X-Men last busted up the plans of Weapon Plus, "The World" has been sitting by unutilized by any forces. That's right, not only has mankind achieved artificial evolution, they forgot they achieved it. Apparently an artificial biosphere has been sitting somewhere in the continental United States for the last 5 years and no-one thought to check up on it. Somewhere there is a scientific discovery with boundless possibilities for the future and it is being treated like a broken refridgerator.

Bravo Weapon Plus. Bravo. Someone needs to manage their assets a wee bit better.

Whenever these type of things happen, I always just assume the facility was cloaked and only known by a select few. Maybe the Weapon Plus people who knew about it died or had their memories altered "off camera." I have no explanation why the X-Men, when desperately trying to find a way to save mutantkind after Scarlet Witch's no more mutants, didn't decide to take advantage of the facility. Seems like that could have helped Beast's research along.

The thing I find most interesting about the "anti-mutant" storylines is that deep down, we're all mutants (granted, they are talking about anti-super-powered mutants, but still...) Then again, maybe after they kill out the supers, maybe they'll turn their eye towards cancer... doubt it.

indonesia beads said...

Plastic beads are utilized in making beaded bracelets, since they are lighter and cheaper than glass. Lay out a design for your necklace on the bead board. You should organize the beads in the fashion that you want them to appear on your necklace. Slide a plastic connector on one end of the necklace with the clasp following it. Stick the short end of the string through the other part of the plastic chain. String on the clear plastic charm beads that you have chosen in the order that you have them laid out on the bead board. In modern clothing and fashion design, a plastic button is a small fastener, which secures two pieces of fabric together. If you're a person who likes to make things, you might want to try making a cool plastic key chain. You can use plastic strings to make a Chinese staircase stitch, a classic lanyard stitch and other fun key chain designs.
