- When Alex turns into a puddle of mercury why don't the fumes she would emit poison all the people around her?
- Because it's not a puddle of mercury. It might look like mercury, but it's just some kind of shiny, metallic liquid.
- So Alex is sure if she is caught the chemical plant will do experiments on her and apparently the cops and other law enforcement wont do anything to stop them. Why? Just because she gained special powers doesn't mean she forfeits all her human rights and legal protections. Is this just a case of Fiction Isn't Fair or what?
