Necrotic Slime [1] (also known as Ionized Necrotic Material, Ionized Necrotic Matter, and Necrotic Ectoplasm) [2] [3] is a caustic substance used by Britt to turn living organisms into Zombies.

HistoryEdit

The Ghostbusters discovered the presence of Necrotic Slime after blasting two Zombies. Realizing it turned things into Zombies, the team strips off their slime drenched uniforms as a precaution. Egon Spengler rigged a Zombie radar to detect the entities based on some Necrotic Slime he saved. The slime could be neutralized when a zombie is possessed by a new type of poltergeist. The true purpose was to use the Zombies' Necrotic Slime to infect Gozer's essence in a bid to steal a fraction of it. [4] Britt decided to leave some Necrotic Slime in Newark, New Jersey.

PowersEdit

The most potent strain of Black Slime, Necrotic Ectoplasm can force an absorption of raw P.K.E. that can mimic the effects of a possession, but without a driving intelligence -- basically turning the host into an aggressive and mindless zombie. The ectoplasm also acts on the cellular level causes painful sores to manifest externally and internally. [5] It is highly dangerous and toxic. It should be avoided at all costs. It basically turns living organisms it touches into zombies through a process known as "hastened ectoplasmic migration from a corporeal form." That is, the soul leaves the body. For an adult male, it took about two days for this process. For a stray cat, it was nearly instantaneous. Egon is able to readjust the P.K.E. Meter to detect the slime.

The most potent strains can force an absorption of raw PKE that can mimic the effects of a possession, but without a driving intelligence -- basically turning into a zombie (not necessarily the cannibalistic ghoul found in pop culture, but an aggressive, mindless mound of flesh).
