Master Race Plan Successful
Somewhere in Germany is a baby Superman, born in Berlin with bulging arm and leg muscles. Not yet 5, he can hold seven-pound weights with arms extended, something many adults cannot do. He has muscles twice the size of other kids his age and half their body fat. DNA testing showed why: The boy has a genetic mutation that boosts muscle growth.
The discovery, reported in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine, represents the first documented human case of such a mutation.
Superboy? Bam-Bam? The result of an underground human genetic experiment left over from the 3rd Reich? Who knows. One thing we can all agree on is that this kid is some kind of freaky.
Gene Expression has some (more intelligent) thoughts.
