But we have seen this premise before, sometimes even more unique than Project Power seems to be portraying. Well, let’s take a look at some of the most unique superpower drugs from TV and shows and Movies.
Compound V(The Boys)
Compound V is essentially a superpower performance-enhancing drugs. It boosts the power of the users, and it has also got some recreational benefits. It is also revealed that Compound V is used to create super-powered beings in the very first place, by injecting children with drugs.
Spice Melange, or the Spice from the science fiction movies by Frank Herbert, gives the users some buffs. Longer life heightened awareness, and it can also unlock powers latent in the users. Spice is addictive and the withdrawals can kill a person. The Spice is somewhat unique.
Super Soldier Serum (Captain America)
