Hello people, recently I've been thinking about the mechanics of Vigors and Plasmids. I have a couple of questions I want to ask and see what other peoples' opinions and theories about this topic.
First question, when Plasmids/Vigors are introduced into the human body, they directly rewrite your DNA and allow you to throw fire/shoot electricity/etc. Now, let's say that Jack meets a nice woman after the events of BioShock, then they decide they want to have a kid. Jack has introduced Plasmids into his body and therefore, his genetic code has been rewritten as such. Since a baby takes genetic material from both biological parents, and Jack's DNA has been changed, could he pass down Plasmids through his DNA to his child?
Second question, when characters like Jack, Delta and Booker get their hands on Plasmids and Vigors, you can see in plain sight that it has a sometimes negative effect on their hands and possibly bodies. One example is Incinerate/Devil's Kiss. When we see Jack use Incinerate, the only bad effect we can visually see are burn marks and his hand and fingers. When Booker uses Devil's Kiss, we can see his skin and flesh melting right off the bone. However, for both characters, when another Plasmid/Vigor is selected, their hands go back to being completely unharmed and they are even able to use other Plasmids/Vigors without any sort of damage. So essentially, what kind of effect would Plasmids/Vigors have on a human body? Would our heroes be potentially destroying their own bodies by using them?
Let me know what you guys think, your ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks
