War of Superpowers
Super soldiers face off during the cold war
During World War II Nazi Germany created a super soldier program but it was too little too late. The remaining super powers (UK, USA and USSR) took the technology to develop there own soldiers.
The USSR found the to create a stable super soldier you had to start the treatments when the child was born.
The US first attempt was a failure and while they were able to create extraordinary abilities it made them insane.
The US toned back the level of enhancement and in 1952 created the first stable enhanced child in the US. A few years later the UK, Canada and Japan were able to develop there own enhanced.
The year is 1972, the cold war is in affect and the super powers are ready to use their investments against each other.
