"There is a Nuke for every mood."
―Cain, referring to his various versions of Nuke[src]
Unlike narcotics processed from agricultural sources or plant extract, Nuke was a designer drug, thus manufacture could be accomplished in nearly any location using widely available chemicals.
History[edit | edit source]
There were four known varieties of Nuke:
- Red Ramrod
- White Noise
- Blue Velvet
- Black Thunder
The original and most widespread variant was Red Ramrod.
Following Cain's death, his brain was inserted into the cyborg, RoboCop 2, which, like Cain before it, was addicted to the substance.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The tiny "container" that held the drug Nuke was actually a saline re-moisturizer for contact lens wearers in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The solution was dyed red and, in some shots, had a small needle sticking out after someone removes the covering to administer the drug.
