15 Machine Man 14

In the dimly lit laboratory at Oscorp building, Dr. Osborn impatiently paced back and forth. The performance enhancers on the table before him held an air of uncertainty. The scientist, clearly uneasy, voiced concerns about the readiness of the enhancers.

Scientist: "Dr. Osborn, the performance enhancers aren't ready. The data just doesn't justify this test."

Ignoring the scientist's reservations, Osborn picked up a vial containing a mysterious green liquid labeled CX.0009, proudly displaying the Oscorp logo. While the scientist was occupied with his objections, Osborn surreptitiously placed the serum inside a machine designed to inject him with the experimental substance.

Scientist: "I'm asking for the last time. We can't do this."

Osborn, unyielding, retorted with an unsettling confidence.

Osborn: "Don't be a coward. Risk is part of laboratory science."

As tension lingered, the scientist, desperate for more time, pleaded for an extension.

Scientist: "Please, just two more weeks! We need more time."

Osborn dismissed the plea, emphasizing the urgency.

Osborn: "Two weeks by two weeks, and we'd lose the contract. Oscorp will be dead. Sometimes you've got to do things yourself. Get me the Promo Cloro Parasin."

Scientist, puzzled: "For what?"

Osborn, revealing his determination, spoke cryptically.

Osborn: "It begins catalyzation when the vapor hits the bloodstream."

With those words, Osborn removed his clothes. He demanded the Promo Cloro Parasin, a peculiar substance that seemed to hold a crucial role in the experiment.

Osborn: "4000 thousand years of evolution, and we barely even tapped the vastness of human potential."

Osborn drank the medicine, slamming the bottle on the ground with a glass-breaking sound. He lay down on a bed with restraints, and the scientist, left with no choice, continued the procedure.

The scientist secured Osborn on the table and entered commands on a computer to initiate the process. The table slid into a chamber, lifting Osborn vertically upright. In a sequence of highly advanced steps, the green liquid flowed through tubes, spewing out as gas. The chamber was enveloped in a thick green fog, concealing the mysterious transformation happening within.

The display transitioned to the revered Halo 2. "Observe the expansive landscapes and intricately rendered character models of Halo 2, now presented with unparalleled clarity that redefines the gaming experience."

GTA San Andreas assumed the spotlight, with Alex noting, "Roam the extensive landscapes of San Andreas with unprecedented visual fidelity. The textures and details have been elevated to a level that reinvigorates the essence of the game."

Alex Arasaka stood in the well-lit conference room of Arasaka Tower, surrounded by his team, as the live stream showcasing the latest Arasaka graphics card, the Arasaka AGTX 580, came to an end. The room buzzed with the energy of success.

Emily: "Boss, that was incredible! The specs, the presentation – it's groundbreaking!"

Alex: "Thank you, Emily. We've worked hard on this, and I'm glad it's being well-received."

Jake: "The comments on the stream are pouring in! People are excited about the realistic graphics and the impact it'll have on gaming."

Alex (smiling): "That's what we aim for – pushing boundaries and setting new standards. But our work doesn't end here. We'll continue innovating."

Alex excused himself from the celebration, making his way back to his private office. As he turned on the TV, the vibrant atmosphere of success in the conference room was replaced by the gravity of breaking news.

The screen lit up, and a news report began. The news anchor, a composed lady with a commanding presence, introduced herself. Good evening. I'm Lisa Anderson, bringing you breaking news on Channel 9. In a series of shocking incidents, a man in a green armored suit has been targeting shareholders of Oscorp. The assailant employs what appears to be a small flying platform, which our staffs has determined to be a military manned drone making these attacks both brutal and swift."

The report continued, detailing the gruesome events that had unfolded, with security footage capturing the green-clad figure wreaking havoc on Oscorp shareholders.

Alex: "Skynet, keep a vigilant eye on the market. The moment Oscorp's stocks take a dip, I want you to acquire as much as you can. If our money is not enough, do the usual hack some illegally made bank account. Make sure we don't get track and get them at any cost. Specially with the shareholders dying, people will be surely put off from buying. Also, keep a close watch on Norman Osborn's activities."

Skynet: "Understood, Alex. Monitoring market trends and Osborn's activities now."

As Alex focused on the unfolding situation, Skynet seamlessly delved into the intricate web of financial data, ready to execute Alex's strategic move and keep tabs on Norman Osborn's actions. The electronic hum in the room echoed the anticipation of a calculated maneuver in the world of corporate power and intrigue.
