Backup Information: This world is similar to ours, but it has a substance called Desonia that acts as a manifestation of chaos. Once damaged, Desonia integrates itself into whatever damaged it. If an organism comes into contact with Desonia, the Desonia will sense the chaos inherent in life and integrate itself into said organism. Such an organism is called a Dissonant, and the infection is called Dissonance Syndrome.
Dissonants exhibit supernatural abilities ranging from being able to tunnel through rock or heal allies to elemancy (manipulating and/or generating elements, like fire or darkness). If you're confused, they're similar to X-Men in that their held abilities are unnatural and could be just about any power you can think of, but the more powerful the ability, the rarer it is.
However, Dissonants have chaos inside them. This makes them more likely to gain genetic defects, such as cancer, and that possibility grows every time an individual overexerts their power or is exposed to Desonia. To offset this, it is possible for a Dissonant's inner Desonia to be 'harmonized,' or integrated fully with their natural energies, turning them into a Resonant. Resonants have enhanced healing factors and abilities, so they're quite valuable, but as of yet, no one has yet determined how to reliably create Resonants. It is established that someone with a 'special something,' part of which is a strong sense of self, can somehow become a Resonant through....willpower? Science is at a loss.
When integrated into an organism, Desonia grants superpowers. When integrated into an object, however, it simply enhances that given object's function. For example, a Desonia-infused gun would absorb ambient energy and turn it into ammo. While it is possible to infuse one object (see the gun example above, or think of a computer) made out of multiple parts with Desonia, something as complex as a plane or car cannot integrate Desonia by damaging it. Its components would have to be Desonia-infused for it to be enhanced.
My question is, in a world exactly like ours but with the above changes, how would the military utilize Desonia? The military in this case has to both defend their home country and deter threats.
