    on steroids to burst into view=?

    First came the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. with his videotaped, over-the-top sermons. He didnít just criticize the United States, but damned it. The Wright controversy was a body blow to the Obama campaign, and it hasnít fully recovered yet.
    I made a crack in a column last week that Senator Clinton, who had no discernible route to her partyís nomination, was waiting for a Rev. Wright on steroids to burst into view.
    Hi!

    on steroids to burst into view=? Rev. Wright would get angry suddenly? I know nothing about the function or effect of steroid.

    I look forward to your help. Thanks in advance.

    This is a reference to those comic book characters who develop enormous strength through taking something.

    Steroids, of course, are used by athletes to build muscle - they are banned substances in the athletic world.
