Cosmic Rays or Gamma Radiation which would you prefer to empower you?
If you lived in the Marvel Universe and had a chance to gain superpowers which, would you prefer as the catalyst Cosmic Rays or Gamma Radiation?
Cosmic rays were created in the Big Bang and were, ironically, manipulated by a time traveling Reed Richards specifically to give people powers.
The Fantastic Four got pretty much what Reed thought about them at the time. Everyone else, most notably the Red Ghost and his Super Apes, just sort of gets some random abilities.
Gamma Radiation is incredibly powerful electro-magnetic rays that are most commonly created during nuclear testing.
Gamma radiation seems to create a cascading mutation effect. The precise nature of the mutation depends upon the psychological desires and insecurities of the person exposed to it. Bruce Banner’s repression of his anger resulted in a literal rage monster. Jennifer Walters introverted nature resulted in the fun and freewheeling She-Hulk. In Samuel Sterns case, his insecurity about his intelligence resulted in the malevolent genius known as the Leader.
Which would you select and what type of powers would you hope to have?
