 Chemicals, Drugs & Potions
Larisa Oleynik as Alex MackGC-161 - Top-secret chemical formula produced by the Paradise Valley Chemical Plant on the sci-fi series THE SECRET WORLD OF ALEX MACK/NIK/1994-98. While walking home from school one day, a young girl named Alexandra "Alex" Mack  (Larisa Oleynik) was nearly run over by an out of control truck which hit a fire hydrant and spilled a container of chemicals (GC-161) onto the street. Mixing with the gushing tower of hydrant water, Alex's was doused in a mysterious shower of chemicals. She soon discovered that the accidental chemical exposure had given her special powers. They included the ability to morph into a golden blob, to levitate objects, and to glow and spark electrical currents.

On the final episodes #78 & #79 "Paradise Regained", Alex's father George Mack develops a cure for her condition and presents her with the potion. Did she or didn't she drink it? That is the question.

"I'm Alex Mack. I was just an average kid until an accident changed my life and since then nothing's been the same. My best friend Ray thinks it cool. My sister Annie thinks I'm a science project. I can't let anyone know - not even my parents. I know the chemical plant has to find me and turn me into some experiment. But you know something, I guess I not so average anymore."   -- Opening Narration
