have apparently accidentally created a substance, known as protonium, that combines protons *and* anti-protons.

Certain staff exposed to this substance have reported some strange side effects, including laser beams firing from their eyes, and the ability to fly.

I may have made that last bit up.

Antimatter and matter combine in chemical reaction
…some of the antiprotons reacted with ionised molecules of ordinary hydrogen, stealing away a proton. These proton-antiproton systems…

But is it a chemical reaction if electrons are not involved?
