So, in my post-nuclear US, a form of mutant, called “Screamers” are somewhat prevalent. They are stronger and stockier than humans, and are hairless and greenish-beige pigmented. As it turns out, Screamers aren’t the sole product of radiation alone. As many post nuclear scientist will tell you, Genetic Mutation Syndrome is caused by Gene M. Gene M, when exposed to radioactive dosages, will transform a human into a screamer.
Gene M has always existed within humankind. Including back in August 1945. In my worlds lore, Screamers didn’t start coming up until people were exposed to nuclear levels of radiation during the Great War (Radiation from Reactors doesn’t do the job) But, since the people were exposed to radiation form nuclear bombs in the two cities, my question is:
How can I explain why Screamers weren’t created in Hiroshima and Nagasaki’s Aftermath’s?
- I’m not a biologist, so if my explanation for becoming a screamer isn’t airtight, please correct me in the comments.
