Nebraska: Radioactive Hornets
In the state of Nebraska, there are a few urban legends and tales of paranormal occurrences. But one that really stuck out over the others, was the tale of the radioactive hornets. Yes, you read that right. The state of Nebraska has a radioactive hornets legend.
And while I could have easily adopted a true monster for the state, there is no way that we could ignore the fact that there are flying hornets four times the size of a normal hornet terrorizing people in Nebraska. Sounds to me like that is a perfect monster already!
While it seems like much of the hysteria around the radioactive hornets has to do with the horrors of the 1940s and the worries over nuclear disasters. Although people might still keep their fly swatters at the ready, I doubt a radioactive giant hornet is going to be easily swatted away!
When it comes to picking a perfect monster for a state, it is always nice when they deliver their own creatures. And while some monsters seem less monstrous than others, in the case of these flying beasts, I can’t help but think this could be one of the more epic monsters. After all, we already have issues with hornets and their vicious little stinging, stabby butts. In their normal, non-nuclear form they are already a little terrifying. But as radioactive giants (giant is relative in terms of a flying insect), these things are the stuff of nightmares.
We may have to skip that next trip to Nebraska after all!
