It was reported today that nerve injuries like the spinal injury that crippled and finally killed Christopher Reeve,


better known as Superman, may now be controlled by a food dye. There is a small problem in that the dye is used in such concentration that the whole body turns blue for a while. And not just the chest and eyes but the skin too. So far the only subjects treated this way for severe spinal injury have been the super mouse

Rats injected with BBG not only regained their mobility but temporarily turned blue.

and The Tick who also had a problem with gravity and falling from high places like rooftops of skyscrapers.


Fortunately for the Tick he is well nigh indestructable, however unfortunately for the Tick, he has an overwhelming need to frequently use the word Spoon in inappropriate situations. You can read all about the new drug at Vital+Signs on CNN.
