Ms. Marvel was innocently at school when all Hell breaks loose. Luckily Shield is there to assist. Agent Simmons quickly makes her way to the science labs to work up a solution to counteract the villainy.
1.) What are microaerophilic lactobacilli?
2.) Could they cause this much a ruckus?
1.) microaerophilic means that the bacteria likes oxygen and typically forms at the surface where oxygen is present, like your mouth.
lactobacilli is a rod shaped bacteria that ferments sugars into lactic acid.
2.) There is something more to these meddlesome globs. Lactobacilli is abundent. However, it poses no real threat. Maybe the globes are using lactobacilli to feed them lactic acid? Sugar crazed teenager mouths would be a great place to hangout for these bacteria. If some alien substance were able to channel them I would see us all turning into mush. It's good that Simmons brought some mouth swabs to check the students after to check them for lactobacilli after they trying to neutralize it.
Wow. FUN STUFF!
