The United States entered the war late, with deficient science programs not up to the level of Germany and, to some extent, Russia. The rush to develop supers on par with the belligerents led to hundreds of serious accidents, incidents of widespread contamination, and the outright destruction of an entire town. Before the various super-manufacturing processes were perfected, less than 40% of those recruited were even expected to survive their modification.
The ones that came through more-or-less intact and with powers deemed useful to the war effort were invariably scarred, paranoid, and depressed, but through liberal application of stimulants and 'combat drugs' were induced to fight, and fight they did. Like madmen. It was not uncommon to see a First-Gen Sherman tearing at a tank with his bare hands, screaming obscenities and calling over and over for support, despite missing the lower half of his torso and a good portion of his skin.
