A mysterious and deadly substance, Ortho Orange #42 has been illegally dumped by an un-named American corporation in at least one vacant lot, possibly in Philadelphia. Little is known of its chemical composition or intended use, but its effects on both human and canine subjects are well-documented.
One human subject, “Scotty”, developed a blood-clotting disorder as a result of his exposure, in addition to his skin turning green, losing his sight, and requiring nasal tubes to breathe. At this point, barring a miracle, his prognosis is terminal. A canine subject experienced less dramatic effects, although his once grey fur was changed to a yellow shade by exposure to the same substance.
