The US Government in the Marvel U Is Ridiculously Inept!
I've noticed lately that a lot of heroes/villains have the word "super soldier serum" involved in their origins. Most recently I've noticed it in Black Panther: Man Without Fear with the introduction the titles main villain Vlad the Impaler. Sure these guys all seem to be getting an incomplete version of the juice but come on man! Seriously, how lazy was security at the facility tasked with guarding that info? I swear that place must've been easier to get into than Jen Walters' bed. You'd think something that dangerous would be kept out enemy hands at all cost. Anybody else know exactly how many people at this point have been exposed to a version of the serum? I quit counting 12 people ago :P
But yes most governments in comics are inept.
I know its the Ultimate Universe but if you read the three arcs that talk about Galactus there is a part where the Black Widow is talking to Cap about the Soviet Super Soldier program and telling him how she was part of that program and was one of the few who survived the side effects.. or something like that. But the Ultimateverse is a near mirror image of 616. I think a lot of the talk of super soldier serums running around the MU are more often just bad copies of the original.
I've always wondered how come no one ever tried to weed out the problems in the Goblin Formula, aside from the insanity, it's ten times better than the SUper Soldier Serum,
I mean most characters (that I can think of) acquire power through freak accidents (Hulk, Spidey, F4 many others)that are hard to replicate, or born that way (Mutants). Wasn't the Goblin Formula manufactured specifically for power, and Osborne wasn't anyone special he was just a regular guy.... well a regular guy with issues :)
