Unorthodox super power usages

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure X-Ray Vision doesn't work that way.

  1. For me, a bigger question than "How does Supes' X-ray vision work?" is "Is Supes' X-ray vision carcinogenic?".
    And who has a pocket right above their waist? Isn't it more likely that this is a case of numismatic pica?
    I read somewhere that, after Roussos inked a Neal Adams "Deadman" story, Adams told DC that Roussos darn well better not ink him again.
    I hope you're doing well, TomO.

  2. I never thought of that...I hope his x-ray vision isn't carcinogenic!

    If it is, that just makes the volunteer that much braver.

    "For my next trick, I need a volunteer from the audience to hide these coins on his person and not get too upset when you are diagnosed with cancer in 10 to 20 years."
