Marvel Universe Roleplay
Techno-organic beings that transmit a terrible virus.
They are a mysterious species from another planet that have no definite form. They look like an ever-changing series of complex mechanical parts. However, they can also take the form of organic beings if they wish.
To keep themselves alive, they eat straight electricity, but also the life force of living creatures. When they feed on an organic being, the infect it with a techno-organic virus that turns the creature into something similar to itself.
These victims become similar to cyborgs, and gain increased strength, durability, speed, and stamina. Though some have been shown to simply die, or become completely technological. Nobody knows why for certain, but it’s possible that the Technarchy can choose.
Nobody has discovered where these beings come from, or what they’re doing.
