“The erupted gas pocket and fuel have combined to create a gargantuan supply of toxin."


"If there’s a way to refine it, I could mould it into something spectacular."

"The water treatment facility will not purify this toxic spill,”

“If I could convince them that I could handle it, well… that would open some real possibilities."

"The best way to test this would be human subjects. Luckily, there’s an ample supply of lab rats right here.”

Many believe the town takeover will be based around the new Spotted Lakes.

This theory actually seems likely due to the water treatment, no doubt Caustic will do something mischievous.
