"The Nitramene still emits low levels of vita-radiation."
"Yeah, we occasionally use them in our experiments to stabilize the..."
"I know what they do."
Anton Vanko and Peggy Carter[src]

Vita Radiation is electromagnetic radiation with a specific wavelength that has stabilizing properties, used as part of Project Rebirth and in the development of the formula for Molecular Nitramene.


Vita-Rays were created and used by Abraham Erskine as part of Project Rebirth along with the Super Soldier Serum.

During his transformation into the first super soldier, Steve Rogers screamed in pain as his body absorbed a vita radiation level of 70%. Peggy Carter and Erskine wanted to stop the project; however, Rogers begged them not to cease, saying that he could take it. Howard Stark proceeded to increase the output to 100%, causing the chamber to glow so brightly that Chester Phillips and other observers covered their eyes. [1]

Nitramene, a chemical created by Howard Stark, emits Vita Radiation.[2]

Vita Radiation can be detected by a Vita-Ray Detector.[3]


Vita Radiation does not last long on people, but objects, such as watches and civilian clothing, hold the radiation longer.[3]
