Pinks and greens

"Pinks and greens" and "Army greens" are colloquial terms for the United States Army's officer winter service uniform of the early 20th century and the planned patterned, service uniform of the early 21st century. The "pinks and greens" uniform was introduced in the 1920s and consisted of a brownish green blouse with lighter colored trousers of a slight pinkish hue. Accessories – which, until 1942, included a Sam Browne belt – were patterned in brown leather. In 1944, an optional field jacket, sometimes called the Ike jacket due its association with Dwight Eisenhower, was introduced. Beginning in 1948, wear of the uniform by officers was restricted to off-duty hours and informal evening social functions; the uniform was altogether deauthorized for officers of the United States Army effective February 1, 1958, for officers of the United States Army Reserve and the Army National Guard of the United States effective October 1, 1959. The "pinks and greens" have been called "one of the flashiest and most striking uniforms authorized by the Army".

After a 60-year hiatus, on November 11, 2018, the U. S. Army announced it would adopt a new uniform patterned on the "pinks and greens" effective 2020, with phase-in to be complete by 2028; the decision to adopt the new uniform was done to fill the gap between the formal blue Army Service Uniform and the Army Combat Uniform created by the deauthorization of the Green Service Uniform used between 1954 and 2015. With the change, the blue Army Service Uniform will again be restricted to ceremonial wear. According to former Sergeant Major of the Army Daniel A. Dailey, the Army designation for the new uniform is "Army greens" rather than "pinks and greens", although it is still called by the traditional nickname. Uniforms of the United States Army U. S.

Xombi was a Korean-American scientist named David Kim from New Jersey, he developed a nanotechnological virus capable of extensive tissue regeneration. Before David Kim could test his invention, a villain named Dr. Sugarman broke into his lab and tried to steal the virus. In the fight, Kim was critically injured, his assistant Kelly injected him with the virus in an attempt to save his life. However, since the nanites used available matter to restore Kim, Kelly—who had laid his body on her lap—was "devoured" by the nanites. Kim became a "xombi" - a immortal, technologically enhanced human being; this embroiled him in the affairs of various races of supernatural beings that secretly lived among humanity for millennia, known collectively as the shadow worlds.
