Bjorn Christensen is a brilliant quantum physicist, and he’ll be the first to tell you so. His rising scientific star was detoured, however, when the son of his colleague, Edison Carpin, snuck into the Large Hadron Collidor in the middle of an experiment. The boy’s presence distracted Edison, who fumbled the delicate controls and started a runaway cycle. All three were bathed in massive doses of radiation of every kind.
Instead of dying, however, the three gained powers. Christensen became a walking microwave emitter, but he couldn’t control it. Edison was able to generate and control dark energy and dark matter. And the idiot child Albert became the master of anti-matter. Together, they call themselves the Outlaws of Physics.
