Dr. Mack: -And while it seems that only M-3's mutation at first. Looking at the latest generation it becomes clear that Subject F-8's traits merely lay dormant. Er uh *gulp* I mean Ms. Eighth's....
Dr. Mack: Y-yes m'am?
Eighth: ..... We'll be here all day with you trying to make correction on the spot. You have little to worry about my feelings being held captive. You have every bit to worry about wasting. My. Time. Continue as you rehearsed.
Dr. Mack: Yes sir Imean M'am. Er. A-according to our findings we believe that the expression of F-8's adaptation ability in Jet, and subsequently his sons, is due to the lack of a trigger. Records show Eighth was pointblank of a blast that wrecked a building yet she was the last of eight survivors with the least amount of wounds and new denser skin. We believe the Adrenal response to high stress- blahblahscienceblahblah-.
Freya: Bah, I had hoped I'd have missed all this. How are you holding up dear? Are you sure you want to hear them go on about such a sour topic?
Eighth:Most of the people responsible for my past torments are dead and no longer a threat to my legacy. Thanks to our planning, my son, and his family I have risen into their spot. Now I command the rest that went along with it while staring eye to eye with some of the most powerful people in the world. Honestly I only come to these things to bask.
Freya: I still think I should've been apart of the five. It feels weird being sixth. I have to go into extra creepy old crone mode to get those power hungry youngins to back down. I'm talking full palpatine.
Dr. Ena: For fuck sake, Bobby. We all understand the science. Get to the point.
Dr. Mack: *grumble* Jet, Flint, and Rocky never had a chance to undergo similar due to their already enhanced durability and regenerative ability. Rocky even tested this years ago by having another Mutate Descendant chop of his arm and so he could reattach it.
Rocky: I'm deadpoolin up in this bitch!
Dr. Mack: Yes, ahem. His body knew it wasn't in real danger.
Scientist: What do you mean it knew?
Dr. Mack: Well, as shown with Case file 665. Upon requesting a method to dictate the sex of a child. And apply this method in giving birth to the first female King. A5 beleleived they had succeeded via blahblahgenetictamperingblah
Freya: Oh, they actually did it. I remember having the vision about needing an physically strong heir with magic. But i don't recall going through with the order.
Eighth: I signed off on it. Thought you just forgot again. Besides, I wanted to see if they could make a female king.
Dr. Mack: According to our Intel it worked. For about a second. Long enough to get, what Ms Grimhilde's occult experts call, the spark. However, King's for some reason are always born male, possibly another side effect. With the adpative mutation mixed in with this the babies underwent a metamorphis into male. With the power normally attributed to Grimhilde females.
Jet: So biology can con magic. That's good to know.
Dr. Mack: In a sense, much like Eighth, every King after Cole has an innate awareness going all the way down to the genetic level. Waiting for something to further enhance it self.
Freya: ....Is that not a mask then?
Eighth: No. one of thier Acid experiment gave me a scar that hasn't heaedl. So i covered it with an exoskeletal plate.
Freya: In my day we used to just wear nice masks.
Other scientist: What about the robot
Rocky(and Astro over PA system): Cyborg.
Rocky: ...Astro, what did we teach you about spying on top secret grown up meetings?
Astro: Not to get caught and only use the knowldge for good.
Dr. Mack: Ahem. As I was going to say. Both Astro and Mal underwent unique birth. In Astro's case, his organics fused with the cybernetic to the point it's impossible to tell where either begins or ends. For Mal, During his troubled incubation period, Jet revealed he was exposed some unstable elements, radiations, and experiments dealing with dark matter and energy. Which his body became... familiar with.
Scientist C: Any develpments on ways to augmet others to possess similar abilities.
Eighth: Snicker. How's that working out for you Hyde?
Dr. Ena: It's. Fine..... M'am.
Dr. Mack: My colleague is currently the only living success for a formula based on Mutates. Specifically Coal. And even he has flair ups. Others, even using less aggressive bases often were reduced to primal states of varying severity. Or turned into full-on monsters.
Eighth: Bobby here is technically the only one that made it out alive, not assaulted, and the least traumatically scared the last time that backfired. Right Hyde? Tell me, when you took your little potion did that help with the condition Coal left your ass in? Or was it like a vampire thing where it's stuck the way it was when you got turned?
Jet: If your done terrorizing, I'd like Bobert to continue his research. Making super mutants is out of the question but this could prove invaluable to medical purposes.
Eighth: ..... Fine. And have the family tree printed out. Flint and the boys made some stickers that would be perfect for it.
Dr. Mack: Yes! Uh I mean it's a pleasure to finally be working under you-I mean- with. I have a wife,
Jet:Well aren't you just gotdamn adorable.
I've been asked to make a family portrait and a family tree. Today I woke up early on a day I had nothing to do and too lazy to work on the comic. Figured, I've got time to waste. Lets give the Family tree a try, sounds simple.
Cut several hours later. Backstories. Introductions. Eight's ability. Power explanation. And lore for why Jet and Sen where missing and what they were busy doing.
Sometimes I wish my brain could chill for a minute and let me do something simple.
