Summary[edit | edit source]
The Awesomepacalypse came to be through the promotional tour planned by Fizzco to distribute their new drink, OverCharge Delirium XT. After the runaway success of Fizzco's first beverage, UNTZ, Fizzco began development of the Overcharge energy drink. Forgoing safety standards for higher production yield resulted in a virus which, when interacting with human tissue, mutated the subject into a grotesquely powerful mutant. The outbreak of mutants began with a nationwide tour, infecting the majority of the United States, and ultimately leading to the infection of Sunset City, home to the protagonist of Sunset Overdrive.
