Metagenesis is the process of comic-book style evolution which gives rise to superhuman mutants with powers and abilities which defy the laws of physics as we understand them in Ourverse. Metagenesis is a normal aspect of evolution in the Metaverse, and is well known to other galactic races. The phenominon occurs with greater or lesser frequency as a life-bearing planet moves through areas of space permeated with cosmic energies condensed there by the Galactic Ley Line. These cosmic energies cause organic molecules to become self-replicating, causing life to arise on that world. Later exposures to ley line forces cause massive spurts in biodiversity, giving rise to new species. Many of these species develop super-powerful enhancements, but such metagenic mutations are unstable, and require access to the ley line to function. The genome for Dragonsstill exists among certain lizards on Earth, but for thousands of years, it could not express itself, until Earth once again entered into the zone of another ley line.
