Lifelight's Secret Lab
Completely enclosed and with no windows, the only way into this area is through the elevator. The walls, ceiling and floor are all white and have lit-up lines along the top and bottom of the walls that lead towards other rooms. Depending on what is happening in the lab is what color those lines are.

The place has multiple rooms for various purposes. A science type person should be able to figure out most of those purposes, but the lab covers anything needed for tinkering with electronics, chemistry, biology, and some seemingly specialized things such as an air tunnel for testing aerodynamics. Notably, all of the rooms are super clean and organized as if the lab has yet to see use or was being presented to a new buyer.

The rooms all connect to a central room, though. The central room of the lab is circular, yet having four "corners" where large tesla-coil-looking things stand (one per "corner"). At the center of the room is a 7' x 4' table.

There are other doors here. Two of which are locked and labeled "Private. Please do not enter without permission."

Antoinette Rebeca Haze:
Lifelight says softly, "I will do a series of tests to see what needs fixing. But there is a chance you are perfectly healthy and only need to learn to control your new powers."

Matt's comment about sustenance requirements has one of Lifelights thought processes go on a mini tangent about what all kinds of things would fuel someone going through metahuman changes. Might he require oil? Maybe he'll require so much mineral that he eats rock. Or maybe by some weird circumstance, he'll require living flesh. Thankfully, this is a thought process Lifelight has learned is best only shared if asked about. Granted, most of her thoughts are treated that way, but still.

 The rest is a long process and if she wants to keep John from panicking and hurting people, Lifelight is going to have to focus on him from here out.

Lifelight moves over to John and asks, "Do you have family I can call?"


 He read as having had serious metabolic changes on ways that defied anything close to normal human physiology anymore.  He did (although Matt had this covered) emit gamma radiation, among other types, absorbing it from the atmosphere around him, somehow amplifying it internally to support his life functions, and then releasing the 'extra' wattage of whatever he absorbed as 'waste' energy much like a human emitted body heat as a slight side effect of the chemical processes which fueled the body itself.

  Matt is starting to guess that is a 'no' on the friends or loved ones front for John. You know, aside from the currently strained relationship with Reeve.

  He will save the 'Don't worry, turning into a Monster drastically increased my amount of friends' encouragement for now.

  "Hmm, while I'm just guessing at the moment.  You might want to hold off on firing huge death rays not simply out of concern for others, but because you may simply be topped off from the incident that cause this."

Seeing the information, Lifelight begins to correlate what The First was telling her earlier. This is all consistent both with how this man's powers were functioning as well as how they came about. Although Lifelight fully trusted Mr First's word (due to her naive nature), she is at least experienced enough to know even the most well-intentioned and intelligent of people can be misinformed. So she held off on saying anything about the nature of First's reassurances until she could have scientific backing. Besides; John probably would want to see the science behind his current situations, wouldn't he?

Lifelight looks back at John to see if he heard her question or was choosing not to answer. If he takes a while, she repeats the question of if he has family to contact.

John slowly shook his head. "No, there's no one. I was....trying to get further in my career before I worried about that. I worked a lot." He looked over at the readings, his transparent skin making it impossible to tell his facial expression.

  Well, at least John had narrowly avoided working himself to death in a very literal sense.  "It may be overly optimistic to expect you can get back to working long hours after a couple sick days." He turns towards Reeve, "But I expect that job will be waiting for you if you still want it, once awkwardness is the worst impact on handling any labwork."

  It's probably better for business if Reeve didn't have 'I fired the guy I turned into a skeleton' as your help wanted reasoning, anyways.  But there's only so far that goes if John doesn't stop emitting enough trace radiation to skew test results several rooms over.  Not exactly the same situation as waiting until you don't have a mouth to learn to cook on a professional level.

So the guy is without family. Whether because he never had siblings, uncles, grandparents or because of some kind of estrangement. But that he has nobody is rather sad. Lifelight gives him a compassionate look and reaches her hand to gently pet him. "I am sorry."

She then looks at the instruments. She then looks back at him, still petting him if he lets her. "I have good news and bad news. The good news is; you are OK and healthy as far as I can tell. Second, I do have a way to make you look like you used to. Third, you can learn to control your new powers. Fourth, you now have a friend if you ever want to call me. The bad news is you will still be the way you are right now, regardless of how you appear."
