Chapter 1: The Book of Regeneration
The Axis Dynasty, our regal and great country, has drafted this book for the purpose of educating its citizens about the history of their noble efforts to eradicate the Numbers for the safety of all citizens. The Book of Regeneration is a book of law and history. It shall be a mandatory reading for all citizens living in the free world.
The Book of Regeneration states, “The mutants, or so-called ‘Numbers’ are the work of evil and must be treated as such. Their unnatural ability to regenerate to their former selves, even in death, is clearly the work of a dark force, a force that will not be tolerated under the new order of the Axis Dynasty. They are a danger to society. All mutants are to be reported to the government of Axis, which will promptly move said mutants to a proper containment facility on the abandoned island of Manhattan where they will await execution. To ensure efficiency in the system of execution, each mutant will be tagged with a number and, as time passes, this number will drop, indicating that he or she is moving closer to their execution. Every week, numbers 1-50 will be injected with Agent-10, the only chemical that can take away a mutant’s regenerative abilities, and executed. Lack of compliance with the system will result in the dropping of one’s number. Henceforth, these mutants will be called Numbers. Everything stated herein is true and approved by the Axis Dynasty.”
