    Link: 5 Superpowers Science Will Give Us in Our Lifetime - It`s not too crazy of an idea to think that one day soon, we`ll have superpowers like Iron Man and Spider-Man.

    It would be better if they invested their time in figuring out how to make money grow on trees.

    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.

    Although it`s more a transparency cloak/jacket.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I tend to think that Batman and Ironman are both cheats.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
