A small percentage of the populations were labelled as Immunes- people that are not affected by The Flare. WICKED attempted to use the Immunes to find a cure by looking at how the brain of the Immune people ( the Killzone ) react to certain situations, as well as the physical make-up of the brain of the Final Candidate. People immune to the Flare include Thomas, Minho, Brenda, Jorge, most of the Glader and some of Group B, and less than 1% of the Earth's population. Most of the Subjects are immune.

In the book The Game of Lives (Book three of the mortality doctrine), in the epilogue, James Dashner describes the protagonist as a Flare infected Crank.
