* The reality of wearing a Nanosuit. While on paper, it seems like a regular powered armor suit, the truth is that it's a symbiote-like device that ''fuses'' with its user (unless you wear a protective suit that prevents its fusion like with Prophet), turning the person into a HumanoidAbomination.
* The Manhattan Virus: Infectees in their late start getting growths on their lower abdomen and pelvis, and those who die by the disease [[BodyHorror ''melt'']] [[BodyHorror into a reddish-pink goo]]. Luckily, it is not contagious.
** However, It is commented that, given its lack of contagiousness, as well as the relatively short range of the dispersal spears, the virus might be a sort of "beta" version, undergoing a controlled trial-run in New York in preparation for a worldwide dispersion of the [[FridgeHorror perfected, fully contagious product]] (which could be what the Central Park tower was meant to do).
