We were fools. It was the dawn of the atomic age. We were reckless with power. Yes, we could harness the atom, but at what price? A half-century after our nuclear test, and this land is little more than a vast, toxic wasteland.
We used to call this place White Sands. Now it is Burning Sands, and there is nothing that lives here that has not been corrupted by radiation, or mutated into creatures of pure, unbridled hate. It is even worse to the north, the ground zero of the nuclear testing, where a landscape of fetid, glowing pools serves as a home for a legion of crazed, irradiated madmen.
At long last, the superheroes have come here to clean things up. I fear for these brave souls. Some scientists say the radiation in this desert will burn for more than a million years. What chance can any superhero have against that?
