What are Plasmids?

Plasmids are mutable DNA created from a source called Adam, that allow the inhabitants of Rapture to boost their natural attributes and do incredible things to their bodies. Some plasmids can gain you strength and speed, while others can add exceptional abilities in the form of weapons and affect the environment around you. Plasmids can be found in 3 different categories: Physical, Engineering and Weapons.

The Contest
We here at the Wrath of Rapture want to see what kind of Plasmids can be thought up by you the community. What we want you to do is, create a Plasmid that is not already in the game and explain to us why it would be helpful, effective and a great power to have. But surely, to go through all this trouble there must be some kind of reward right? Of course there is.

1st place: (1) Bioshock 360 Faceplate
Runners up: (3) Threadless Bioshock t-shirts
