I will be adding journal entries with some of my latest discoveries. Check back periodically for updates.
The paradigm shift I once talked about in regard to my late father's research and life's work is no longer a hope or recurring dream. I believe I have found the solution to one of the mysteries my father was never able to answer in his studies on DNA and protein syntheses. I have managed to isolate the precise genetic sequences that exist within people with abilities. Contrary to my father's belief, these abilities do not originate in the blood; in fact they are produced from the adrenal glands. For the first time, I can confidently say that I am moments away from finding a cure for Maya, and I've yet to determine what else. I may actually be able to give abilities to anyone, maybe even myself.
It's been only four hours since I injected myself with the serum and I am eager to see what other abilities will manifest. What I did to those men... it was so unexpected, but it…it felt good, like nothing I've ever felt before. I know I'm changing, I'm just uncertain of what I may become.
My increased adrenaline has jump started my metabolism. My appetite is virtually insatiable. It is said that a butterfly can store twelve times its body weight before metamorphosis. At the rate I'm going I may have wings by this time next week.
I woke up this morning full of energy. I've never felt so alive. I can hear clearer, see further, and even process information faster. It's truly incredible, beyond my wildest dreams, even. Everyone should have access to powers like these. I finally feel as though I can truly help people. The possibilities are infinite. If only my father were still alive to witness this discovery.
My DNA is recombining into something new. The RNA transcriptase enzyme is rewriting the code, my future may never be the same, but I can honestly say that I'm relishing every minute of this. My DNA fingerprint is causing my dormant traits to surface and take over. I feel like I'm capable of anything - a new man.
I'm a bit frightened. Strange things are happening to me. I'm dehydrated, my skin appears to be peeling and I have strange growth occurring on my upper back with slight bleeding and scarring. It seems my transformation is actually having a physical affect on me as well. Hopefully this is all just a passing phase…
Three days after injecting the genetic modification formula. My reflexes are sharper, my strength…off the charts. It's a dream come true. Who among us hasn't wished for strength? To fly? And now – it's all possible!
There are a few adverse reactions. The one exception being an unusual rash. A byproduct of the formula? An allergy?
The rash is spreading. I don't know what it is – or its connection to my…aggression. The formula is transforming me and I fear… I fear what I am becoming --
I cannot reverse the process – cannot remove the ability. Not from Maya. Not from myself. It's part of me now.
Journal entry nineteen. I've been monitoring my vitals for the past 48 hours since discovering my rash and the adverse side effects don't appear to be ceasing; if anything, they're getting worse. What's happening to me? What I thought was a blessing, something to be granted to all, is nothing more than a curse -- my curse. What have I done...
