Weapon Plus is a fictional clandestine program appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. It was created by Grant Morrison during his run in New X-Men, the programs purpose is the creation of super-soldiers intended to fight the wars of the future, especially a Mutant-Human war. Weapon X, the organizations most well-known program, was originally the tenth installation, Morrisons introduction of Weapon Plus also shed new information about the origins of Weapon X, Captain America and other Marvel Comics supersoldiers. During the 1940s the existence of mutants was not yet known to the general public, a few individuals were aware of the coming of Homo superior and the fact that they had the potential to replace baseline humans as the dominant species of Earth. Thus Weapon Plus was created to address the so-called mutant problem, the first nine installments of Weapon Plus were partially successful. Weapon X produced a number of agents, though it branched off, throughout the decades, Weapon Plus has used increasingly more extreme methods to create its super-soldiers. Captain America was enhanced to peak human levels, Weapon X employed genetic alteration, brainwashing and memory implants. The latest creations were bred specifically to become mutant-hunting weapons much deadlier than Sentinels, following M-Day, most of mutantkind has been rendered powerless, and mutants as a race are on the brink of extinction.
