No one knows how or why they just suddenly arrived. What is known is that their very existence and subsequent development with us caused ripple effects on a local, global, and maybe even on a cosmological scale. Our society already struggling with its own growing pains were in no way ready for the this sudden shift in the paradigm. Some looked at them with awe, others with disgust, some even eventually formed extremist movements, for and against. In the end after this society’s rapid and almost brutal forced change, most welcomed what they had seemed to eventually be….our guardians and protectors from new horrors that started appearing not too long after their arrival.
Questions, there were so many of them. What gave them their powerful abilities, yet also made them so subject to the most basic human condition also? We eventually got them to reluctantly agree that our scientific teams may study them on certain terms and conditions, and also periodically. What we discovered so far about them was nothing less than amazing. The rapid healing factor, the uncanny agility, and above average strength were all things which made certain other then “Super Power” nations nervous. Why was it that only after their appearance on Earth that the monstrous creatures also soon became a new reality? Were they followed here? Why? So many questions, not enough answers!
Despite their quite apparent and visible…condition if one might call it that, they have settled in well to their new adopted home. Thanks to the many who did their very best to keep an open mind to them and to fight off the biases and fear of the wider society. For those of us who were there with them from the beginning all agree that if we did not treat them with the respect and kindness, things could have been disastrously different. They do not have to follow our rules. They do not have to protect us. They could destroy us if they really wanted to. However they have chosen to work with us, even though at times it has proven difficult.
Other nations have taken a huge interest in our little micro-state since they came to discovery. It made us an over-night wonder of the world. But for all that sudden and unexpected fame and attention, we still maintained our sovereignty. They helped us with that as well.
Of all the questions, there is still the first one that remains baffling to most in the urbanised world from the highest intellectual elite to the lowest common denominator on the street. A question that was there when we first found them.
Why the hell can they not wear pants!!!???
