* ''{{Cyborg 009}}'''s Ivan Whiskey was experimented on by his MadScientist father Gamo and turned into Cyborg 001, a [[PsychicPowers powerful psychic]]. Because he was converted into a cyborg when he was just a few months old, he'll be [[NotAllowedToGrowUp stuck in the body of an infant]] ''forever''. In the 2001 adaptation this is also a case of [[spoiler:LoveMakesYouEvil, as Gamo first converted Ivan in order to [[IllBoy save his life]] but later left him in the "care" of Black Ghost...]]

Added DiffLines:

* Black Bolt and Maximus of ''Comicbook/TheInhumans'' were exposed to the mutagenic Terrigen Mists by their parents Agon and Rynda as part of experiments to see if very early exposure to the Mists would make them SuperpowerLottery winners. Black Bolt, exposed while in utero, more or less is one. Maximus, exposed as an infant, is powerful, but not ridiculously so. On the downside, Black Bolt cannot speak without unleashing the full devastating effects of his power and Maximus may or may not be congenitally insane.

* Professor Watabe of ''PsychicAcademy'' treats his daughter Mew like this. It's so extreme that ''he never bothered to name her'': Mew Baurra is the first two pieces of her Aura Code, not an actual name. She is technically nameless until Ai arbitrarily gives her a name... when she's about 16. Watabe's experiments grant her considerable power - at the cost of her powers being uncontrollable while in certain mental states, capable of damaging her own health if she uses them too much, and the sprinklers that went off whenever she lost control during experiments and set the room on fire gave her a crippling fear of rain.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/SandpaperKiss'': The press and the narrator keep on speculating why Dr Faulkner would experiment on (and possibly kill) his own wife and daughter, and the public thinks he's a monster. Eventually [[spoiler:Mark is the only person who investigates close enough to realise that Faulkner was actually trying to cure IllGirl Lucretia.]]

* The ''CodeGeass'' novels seem to take this route, a bit: [[spoiler: Nunnally's hinted at, but never explained in the anime, psychic powers]] are a result of experimentation with Geass while she was in the womb, and her [[spoiler: psychosomatic blindness]] was an attempt to get her to use those abilities. For the record, they seem to be [[spoiler: reception-only touch telepathy and some sort of sensory ability.]] Considering the number of elements added to the second series from other spin-offs - specifically, Lost Colour's Knight Of Nine, and Cornelia's two wing-girls who join the Valkyrie squadron after her disappearance - it's not completely impossible that it was added into the background. Just look through the two seasons and count how often [[spoiler: Nunnally]] seems to be able to detect something that she shouldn't really be able to.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smallpox_vaccine The use of cowpox]] to "vaccinate" (the word is derived from the latin for "cow") against smallpox was pioneered by Edward Jenner, who experimented on his gardener's eight year old son. Not quite his own family, but close. Once the boy had recovered from cowpox he repeatedly innoculated the poor boy with smallpox in order to demonstrate his immunity. The only reason Jenner is remembered as a hero rather than a [[MadScientist otherwise]] is that it worked.
