Earth-3 has all the features of our reality: same countries, same personalities (politicians, movie stars, etc.), same historical events (World War II, 9/11, etc.), and so on. However, it also contains new ones, such as events like the Human/Mutant war and corporations like Prime Industries and the DGP. But the biggest difference between this universe and ours is the existence of a new species of humans who can use more than 20% of their brain capacity, giving them special abilities/superpowers.
In this reality, a mutant capturing agency, called the DGP, was formed to protect the normal citizens by locking the specials in a prison island, Terminus. This made mutants live in constant fear, having to hide their abilities from the rest of the world.
Of course, as one would expect in a universe where people have superpowers, there would inevitably have to be crime and evil, and this universe is no exception. Arguably, the most threatening villains in the main story are Prime Industries, a multimillionaire company owned by the corrupt businessmen Nick Raley and Cole Patterson, that secretly experiment on mutants. It intervened in almost every character story and probably holds the record for most character kills in the entire TV series. Other major villains include Brad's group, formed by himself, Joey and Matt; Sarah's Sisterhood, Zandra and her family, the bipolar Hayden Turner, Justin Wilson, mutant hating groups and even the cyborg Elle.
Origin Of Superhuman PowersEdit
Most of the superhumans got their powers thanks to an augmented brain capacity. It usually activates during puberty, but there have been cases where they activate earlier. It has been speculated that the power acquired is affected by the additional zone of the brain that the mutant gets.
Other possible ways of acquiring superhuman powers include:
- Magic: Even though magic did not exist in this reality, Kat once teleported Zandra to Earth-6, where she met her counterpart, who taught her dark magic. Zandra came back, bringing magic into Earth-3.
- Other mutants: Some mutants can give powers to normal humans. Allen is one of them. Using his ability, he gave powers to Brad, Joey, Matt, Sarah, Lois, Cassidy, Sierra and possibly many more.
- Bionic Implants: Some characters have no powers at all, depending instead on advanced technological equipment. Technology is slightly more advanced in this reality; this is due to unique individuals with incredible abilities, such as Haley Brooks. The better known individual who gained superhuman abilities through this method is probably Elle Montgomery, turned into a cyborg by Prime Industries.
- Vampirism: Jace, one of the oldest mutants in existence, could also give powers to normal humans by turning them into vampires. He was the one who originated the vampire race, capable of running at high speeds, superhuman strength, limited mind control and immortality. To become a vampire, a person must die with vampire blood on their system. The only thing vampires need to stay alive is to drink human blood, not needing to eat or sleep. If a vampire doesn't drink human blood in a period of 24 hours, being exposed to sun light will burn its skin, killing them if exposed for too long.
- Other Dimensions: There are many other dimensions (Also known as Earths) where other kinds of power exist. Magic did not exist until it was brought to this reality from Earth-6 (Still being a rare source of power).
- M: M was a drug created by Prime Industries and delivered illegally to the homeless. Prime Industries' goal with M was to successfully create a drug that could give powers to normal humans. M did gave them powers for a short period of time but it also resulted in the user's death as a side effect.
- Super Serum: Another Prime Industries experiment who conveyed super strength and durability to its users. As a side effect, those who injected themselves with the serum commonly died with heart attacks. Elle is the only known survivor to its effects, although the reason for that outcome is unknown.
