Golden Age Origin

Dr. Nerod, super-scientist, was working on nonlethal weapons for the US military in his mountain retreat laboratory. One of these non-lethal weapons was a sleeping-sickness spread by flies which would put infected enemies to sleep and in sixty days they will die unless treated with the antidote. The Americans would then take the infected enemies captive and only cure those who promised to never fight again. In order to protect the Allies from being infected, Dr. Nerod created a sophisticated bug zapper that prevented the flies from breeding. The plan was implemented and worked effectively against the enemy making war a “useless enterprise.”
