It"s not too crazy of an idea to think that one day soon, we"ll have superpowers like Iron Man and Spider-Man.

The government is working on invisibility for jets. it;s really a pretty simple idea. a bunch of small cameras on top and a bunch so small video screens underneath.

Invisibility as we`ve traditionally defined it will not be possible for an assuredly long time. Certainly a cloak will not help us because in order to see out of it, our eyes would have to be visible through the cloak.

Technically that armor is MJOLNIR, not Mark III

MJOLNIR armor works exactly the same, responding to neural signals to move, not just moving as you move your arm.


But otherwise, the only one that seems hard to believe is the telekinesis one. We`re still far away from true telekinesis, move-anything-you-want abilities.

yes, the double-edged sword. because there`s always that one evil mastermind who steals it and uses it for...evil.

Dr. X? DOCTOR X?
Cracked just lost a huge amount of street cred.

You`re such a nerd :|...I thought the same thing 8D Dr. X...what the hell?

Anyway, someday we`ll all be able to inject ourselves with some sort of syrum or something to alter our DNA so we can shoot electricity at annoying people and hobos with our hands, but we`ll all become addicted to the syrum that lets us do-- Sorry too much Bioshock. Superpowers would be neat I guess, but there`s always a chance of someone evil getting it and pwning us all.

what cracked feels to mention is that spiderman is super intelligent. he designed the webslingers sure, but he also perfected the chemicals strands to dissolve after 24 hours.

and iron man didn`t just dawn a suit for the hell of it, his original reasoning for the suit was to keep him alive. and also, as well as being a stingy rich boy, he is a "genius" having graduated from MIT.

and I have to agree...dr.x = fail. cracked just hurt a lot of comic fans, but they are always getting their comic info wrong, going mainly from movies and not the original comics.

"Batmanners, I`m sorry, but I always kind of pictures Batman as a whiny little emo kid who always brings up how his parents died and the vast sums of money they left him."

No, that`s Spiderman. Minus the money.

& Batmanners: Ironman uses money to help him because he has no superpowers. Batman uses money to help him because he has no superpowers. Batman and Ironman are the same damn person.

I agree. Money does not equal superpower.

I love Cracked, I really do. But linking to every other update they have gets a little annoying. Couldn`t we put other user submitted links there instead? We can all visit Cracked after we go through our IAB fix.

The invisibility cloak would be more useful if it did not glow neon green.

Ironman is a douche. He`s a millionaire and he cheat by using rocket-boosters and a robotic suit to halp him because he is so weak.

Batman pwns all, without anything to boost his strength, except...the secret to Batman`s real powers... Chuck Norris semen. Yeah...C.N`s jizz.

I actually came up with exactly the same idea as the woman who invented the invisibility cloak when I was twelve.

The invisibility cloak is just a green screen, you even have to look through the camera/glass thing for it to work. Real invisibility is being created, where the light goes around the object.

But I want my superpowers come from a genetic mutation caused by radiation.

AH well, I can keep on dreaming.

Though I really would love invisibility (real one, like bending light around me!). I`m already socially invisible, might as well take it to the next level.

This stuff is badass

Wasn`t there a guy on Ripleys with a chip in his arm? Or some other show?


First time I`seen the invisabitty cloak in `acction;. If it`s true.
