* ArtisticLicenseNuclearPhysics: Pretty much ''everything'' about the atomic bombs is completely wrong. They're too heavy for a single person to lift out of a crate, they use plutonium rather than uranium, and they're not volatile. (Why in the world would someone build a city-destroying weapon that they planned to store somewhere for an indefinite length of time, that was ''easy to set off by accident?'') Making an atom bomb actually go off requires such incredibly delicate engineering that it took [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan_Project massive amounts of research]] to figure it out; mishandling it would cause contamination at worst, but not a mushroom cloud. {{Hand wave}}d by Frost; she designed and built them herself, so they're not normal bombs.
