Then it hit me, why should the soldier who first experienced the “Uber-Effect” be the ones who gain powers? All those soldiers were infected when Berlin was bombed, but no one noticed, as there was no major external event. However, the second thing those soldier did when they got back to the states was take off their shoes. If you know what I mean(nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more).
it was the baby boomers who gained stable superhuman abilities! more on this later, just had to get it down now while the thought was still in my head.
