The Curie Radium Institute
Marie Curie (née Maria Salomea Sklodowska herb Dolega)
- My Dying Wish : While she was dying of radium poisoning, Marie summoned Léo Saint-Clair at her deathbed. She planned to give him complete authority over the superheroes of Paris if he agreed to lead a offensive on Spanish fascism comprised of European superheroes. He said yes, but he never fulfilled his promise.
- Mad Scientist : despite having a pretty strong code of ethics, she still fits the trope. She loved to experiment on various dangerous discoveries she made, and put them stacked in her office in a never-ending mess, and without any kind of warning label. This comes back to bite the heroes' asses more than a few times.
- Motherly Scientist : A variation. She didn't create her test subjects herself, most of them were made by pure accident on the battlefiels or by other, evil scientists. She fits the trope because she took the mutants under her protection, helped them to find a cure to their diseases and to master their superpowers.
- Science Hero
- Happily Married :
- Reluctant Mad Scientist : works for Big Brother and the USSR, but only because she absolutely needs political protection. Unlike many intellectuals of her time, she thinks they're just as bad as fascists.
- Science Hero :
Hélène Joliot-CurieThe couple's young daughter.
- Generation Xerox : It's pure speculation, but if we follow the logic of the comic, she's bound to become a Science Hero as her mother and grandmother before her. In real life she's still running the French Department of Atomic Energy, so it fits with the legacy.
- The Unseen : Justified, since her parents don't want to drag her into their dangerous and clandestine operations.
