Scientist: Ladies and gentlemen, today we take not another step towards annihilation, but the first step on the path to peace.

We begin with a series of microinjections into the subject’s major muscle groups. The serum infusion will cause immediate cellular change. And then, to stimulate growth, the subject will be saturated with Vita-Rays.

Steve Rogers: That wasn’t so bad.
Scientist: That was penicillin.

Serum infusion beginning in five, four, three, two, one.

Now, Mr. Stark.

Steven? Can you hear me?

Steve Rogers: It’s probably too late to go to the bathroom, right?

Scientist: We will proceed.

Howard Stark: That’s 10%. Twenty percent. Thirty. That’s 40%.

Doctor: Vital signs are normal.

Howard Stark: That’s 50%. Sixty. Seventy. . .


Scientist: Steven! – Steven!

Agent: Shut it down! Shut it down!

Scientist: Kill the reactor, Mr. Stark! Turn it off! Kill it! Kill the reactor!

Steve Rogers: No! Don’t! I can do this!

Howard Stark: Eighty. Ninety. That’s 100%.

Scientist: Mr. Stark?

Steven? Steven?

General: The son of a bitch did it.

Steve Rogers: I did it.

Scientist: Yeah, yeah. I think we did it.

Howard Stark: You actually did it.

Agent: How do you feel?

Steve Rogers: Taller.

Agent: You look taller.

3. The experiment was very technical, scientific and complex. Is this right or wrong?

4. Did the project involve just chemicals, rays or both chemicals and rays?

5. Was the procedure instantaneous or was it gradual and incremental (step by step)?

6. The scientists and engineers aborted (canceled) the experiment. Is this correct or incorrect?

7. Was the project a success or failure? What was the result?


A. I have seen this movie. Yes or no?

B. Would it be useful or good to have superheroes? Why or why not?

C. My friends and I would like to be strong, fast and smart. If I were super strong, fast and smart, I would . . . .

D. Should scientists and engineers research and conduct experiments on people like this?

E. What might happen in the future?
