What is Dr. Poison giving General Ludendorff that helps him get stronger and she says will help restore his strength? I understand the whole idea was to make him look like Ares and she was helping him get his strength back, but when it is revealed he isn't Ares, this just raises more questions.

My initial thoughts were it was some kind of adrenaline which is how he was able to crush the revolver he held right after, but it doesn't explain why his face glowed. Did I miss something that revealed what this was?

I heard a theory that it might be a precursor to Venom (Used by Bane). I will keep this open to other theories and possibilities until an answer is presented from the director or cast.

Best Answer

It wasn't any medicine that can be found in the actual world. Even adrenaline won't make you be able to crush a gun into pieces. Further, adrenaline is usually administered via syringe or pills, not by snorting it.

Based on all of this we can infer it was just a fictional creation of the film.
