A legal amphetamine aimed at the teen market, ZeeZee’s were produced by the Worldwide Corporation. Unfortunately for everyone involved, the drug failed to meet FDA standards. Indeed, it caused internal bleeding and cardiac arrests, all too frequently leading to the deaths of innocent teenagers. Worldwide not only attempted to cover this up, but when the deaths started, they sued the parents for slander and defamation.

Fortunately, the legal representation in the class action suit was provided by Franklin Nelson and Matthew Murdock, who thoroughly trounced the Worldwide Corporation in court thanks to top flight legal skills and the testimony of whistleblowers. ZeeZee’s are no longer on the market, and never will be again.

An unlikely chemical of tapping into that same power that caused the Ten Plagues of Egypt – i.e. the Wrath of God – Sentry Serum was created by a un-named Professor in an attempt to recreate the Super Soldier Serum.

Clearly, he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. Just as clearly, the addict and theif who took the sole, untested sample of the serum, Robert Reynolds, was manifestly unsuited for the nigh-infinite power it unleashed in him.

It is unclear whether the serum caused his multiple personalities, or merely exacerbated an existing tendency in Reynolds, but in either identity – the ‘heroic’ Sentry or the evil ‘Void’ – he had more power than he could easily control. With his death, it is unlikely that the serum will ever be recreated.
