The super-soldier. A cross between a human and another species. NOW possible? NOT a dream but could become a reality. A cross very strong, robust, having a degree of intelligence, train-able but docile enough to obey commands and not turn on you!
This is so apropos too. ONLY the other day saw a program on TV about this very thing.
"'I can create Neanderthal baby, I just need a willing woman'"
"A scientist has said it would be possible to clone a Neanderthal baby from ancient DNA if he could find a woman willing to act as a surrogate."
The Neanderthal having only thrusting weapons. Needed to move in close to a big animal and kill with repeated thrusts to the vitals. Great strength and courage required.
Clone a Neanderthal one thing, breeding that super-soldier a cross between a modern human and a Neanderthal also possible?
Modern humans ALREADY having a degree of Neanderthal genetics so it seems. Of those persons of European ancestry that DNA from Neanderthals about 5 %. So modern humans and Neanderthal did mate and inter-breed.
Technology for better or worse has progressed to the point where such cloning again for better or worse is now possible in a manner it was not in the past.
Neanderthal from what scientists surmise indeed very strong [your average Neanderthal man able to bench press without difficulty about 300 to 400 pounds [480 to 640 kilograms], having intelligence [to what degree as comparable to a modern human not determined] and able to exist and thrive in an area of the world for many hundreds of thousands of years that harshness of which was unmitigated.
That idea to create the super-soldier also an idea FINDING FAVOR AT ONE TIME WITH JOSEPH STALIN! Joseph instructing his Soviet scientists to mate a human and gorilla again with the intention of creating a breed of creature to be utilized in the military capacity. NOTHING came of the project such was the limited technology of the time.
But NOT NOW!
Watch out and fear that the "thing" might turn on you with disastrous consequences.
