    So, now that Lois is Dannered up, how long until the conspiracy theory that she is actually Wonder Woman('s secret sister / daughter / niece) starts making the rounds?

    Because no matter how stupid it is with Diana having no secret identity, there will be idiots peddling it based solely on her relationship with Superman (and shipping). Also, it'll be deeply ironic if Lois was considered to be a secret superhero, rather than Clark, and thus narrativium will make it happen.

    I can see governments wanting their own super strong soldiers after finding out that an entire small army that can destroy a very big army has been hiding out in Brazil.

    Are they really that big a deal? You can still wipe them out with chemical weapons if they actually try to attack in force. They're more useful as guerrillas than as an army.

    Though I'm half expecting Overgirl to do something stupid.

    If things get messy during negotiations, as I am sure they will, then OL could simply create constructs around the heads of the enchanciles and shoot them with sleeping gas.

    What Dawn Warrior said is ringing all the same bells in my head that Ozymandias’ line of “I did it thirty five minutes ago” rang.

    They were just discussing what if a nation made hundreds to thousands of enhanced people, and found one. The catch is that these guys live in the Amazon. So conventional warfare or mass bombing is out.

    This will be fun.

    The clear solution is to merge with the Ophidian and use the Danner formula on everyone on earth who isn't already a meta human.

    Well Lois doesn't need to worry about being a Woman of Kleenex thanks to Paul, all she needs to worry about now is friction burns!

    Which is probably where the Garrick Formula would come in handy.

    He is way more familiar with the Danner formula. And does have a whole biological database about humans.

    He can do it without killing the subjects then heal them to perfect regular humans. He just has to want to do it.

    Assumedly both of his parents were from the tribe, parents'. Otherwise it would probably be less awkward to specify which parent.

    There's no specific reason why alchemical substitutions can't work. More than one source could provide the necessary essence (or whatever you want to call the metaphysical stuff) and a related but slightly different essence might still produce functional (if not optimized) results.

    You might say... it happens daily.

    He told Robin and Artemis that he could make them non-dannered clone bodies and move their brains into them. That’s the best he could do.

    That was for people he cares about wayyyyyy more than random people in Brazilian forests. He can’t just rip the danner formula out, Zoat has had this stated in universe multiple times.

    At this point calling it Human Experimentation is just politically motivated self interest bullshit. This is a procedure that has been performed many times, on people that have been around decades. It works and has been shown to work rather well.


    Like those convenient quality of life and life saving medicines and procedures that are available in other countries but not in your native country because your local health oligarchy and influence brokering consortium determined the foreign countries research doesn't count, and all those people successfully undergoing the procedure don't count as evidence of it's effectiveness or safety.

    Because doesn't everyone know that (several) living, breathing examples staring you in the face is no reason grow a bleeding heart and decide that a growing mountain of empirical data outside your control and oversight might be a compelling reason to use an simplified test protocol.

    It's probably easier to imprison Danner Enhanciles than it used to be. Just lease out the technology behind the power nullifying collars Belle Reeve uses.

    They got them to work on the Terror Twins, and I think in this fic they are Enhanciles. I'm sure Paul could whip something up. Maybe even make like a gun that temporary nullifies someone's powers. Stuns them a little. Gives normies time to close in with the collars.

    When it comes out that there is a small army of Danner enhanced persons world governments are going to lose their shit.
    Not quite Marvel Civilian bad but I imagine Lex is going to see a surge in demand for his weapons division's products.

    Worse It could be both, Overgirl may decide that the National Socialists have been too soft with the purges.
    Now that would be a kick in the Teeth for Paul.

    Makes you wonder if one of the Lights membership arranged for the needed equipment to "fall off the truck" just to arrange this exact scenario.

    This fits the type of crap Savage or Ra's would pull.
    I'd blame lex as well but this has been going on before he was even around.

    Look on the bright side, this is a great training exercise in how to deal with upcoming shitstorms that can tear apart a country.:D
    Bonus because there is a real chance this will result in said country tearing the students will be more motivated to pass, or else the whole country tearing apart in bloody war thing.

    Diana is the secret identity (at least I think Zoat's been playing it that way, or at least I think I vaguely remember Conner's classmates not recognizing his mom). Granted, it's even more flimsy than Clark Kent's glasses, but I suppose that's why Wonder Woman's traditional costume is so revealing. Everyone's so busy looking at her flesh that they don't notice Diana Prince has the same face.

    This could actually be good for OL's goal of uplifting humanity, if the world becomes aware of the Children of Dawn 2.0 then there will be a lot of pressure on people like Lex and Ted to develop a form of the Danner Formula that doesn't need to be given in vitro, which OL would probably help Ted with, and would allow him to put more pressure on Batman to accept the Danner Formula when they're not far off from it being publicly available anyway

    Wonder Woman had a secret identity in Young Justice.

    She did use Diana Prince in the 1940s when she first came to the United States. But since she has returned in the modern era, she no longer uses that identity.
