The US Government in the Marvel U Is Ridiculously Inept!

I've noticed lately that a lot of heroes/villains have the word "super soldier serum" involved in their origins. Most recently I've noticed it in Black Panther: Man Without Fear with the introduction the titles main villain Vlad the Impaler. Sure these guys all seem to be getting an incomplete version of the juice but come on man! Seriously, how lazy was security at the facility tasked with guarding that info? I swear that place must've been easier to get into than Jen Walters' bed. You'd think something that dangerous would be kept out enemy hands at all cost. Anybody else know exactly how many people at this point have been exposed to a version of the serum? I quit counting 12 people ago :P

Any security force in fiction is inept when it comes to supervillainy.

@InnerVenom123: Ha! This is very true. I swear getting hazardous materials for villains is as easy as buying a gallon of milk. They may as well have put the serum in Walmart for all the ease other nations seemed to have gotten their hands on it.

@JonesDeini: Except the original SS Serum was never written down and gone when Dr. Abraham Erskine was killed after the creation of Steve Rodgers, most of the SS Serum's that are getting out are the one the Soviet Union/Russians created, or it was created by some super villain so he can either build an army of super soldiers or sell it to people who want it.
 
 But yes most governments in comics are inept.

Marvel loves to reflect real world issues, that is one of their mottos ;)

True, but how'd the Russkies even get a copy?

@JonesDeini: They created their own.
 
I know its the Ultimate Universe but if you read the three arcs that talk about Galactus there is a part where the Black Widow is talking to Cap about the Soviet Super Soldier program and telling him how she was part of that program and was one of the few who survived the side effects.. or something like that. But the Ultimateverse is a near mirror image of 616. I think a lot of the talk of super soldier serums running around the MU are more often just bad copies of the original.

It's revealed that she's a member of the same kind of program in 616, and she and Bucky were given the same serum.

I've always wondered how come no one ever tried to weed out the problems in the Goblin Formula, aside from the insanity, it's ten times better than the SUper Soldier Serum, 
 
I mean most characters (that I can think of) acquire power through freak accidents (Hulk, Spidey, F4 many others)that are hard to replicate, or born that way (Mutants). Wasn't the Goblin Formula manufactured specifically for power, and Osborne wasn't anyone special he was just a regular guy.... well a regular guy with issues :)

@cattlebattle:  
True, you fix the one kink in that thing and you have a viable source for replicating super powered armies.

Don't worry-its not much more inept in fiction than it is in reality!
