There's a Thin Line Between Genius and EVIL. Sky-Q is such a good "smart drug," it's a shame it's illegal. Users gain an hour of better memory and concentration--followed by fatigue, irritability, and other unpleasant side effects. A few steady users gain much more: They master exotic sciences and invent radical new technologies. They also develop bizarre megalomaniac obsessions and become supervillains! Some of them become loopy "theme gadget" criminals. Others are rather less funny.
