Hypercortisone D, better known by its street name Kick, is a highly addictive aerosol used by metahuman individuals to attain boost in superhuman/mutant powers and a mental high.

It was later revealed that Kick was in fact an aerosol form of the sentient bacteria, Sublime. Unaware of its connection with Sublime, this drug became very popular within the mutant community, especially in areas such as Mutant Town.

Although not confirmed, it appears that long-term use of Kick causes psychosis. Although this psychosis could only be temporary. In rare instances extreme long-term use can result in physical and mental possession by Sublime.

After the murder of Jumbo Carnation, Quentin Quire began to question Xavier's dream of peace coexistence between humans and mutants. To challenge Xavier's dream and humanity, Quire began using Kick and organized militant group of like minded students called the Omega Gang.[2] Under the influence of Quire and Kick, the Omega Gang murdered humans, fought the X-Men and incited a riot at the Xavier Institute.[3] To stop Quire, Sophie Cuckoo used Kick to boost her telepathic powers so she could operated Cerebra. With the help of her sisters, Sophie stopped Quire and quiets the panicking mobs. However, Sophie died either from mental strain or a Kick overdose.[4]

Later Xorn and Esme Cuckoo engaged in the use of Kick while carrying on their affair. Both where under the influence of Kick when Xorn posed as Magneto and took over New York City with his Special Class and Brotherhood.[5]

During the Civil War, Wolverine discovered that the super-villain Nitro used a combination of Mutant Growth Hormone and Kick to increase his power level, which allowed him to annihilate Stamford, Connecticut.
