Matt Murdock

The accident which changed Matt Murdock's life forever.
The crashing of a truck carrying radioactive waste topples over and is spilt all over him.

A child who was involved in a radioactive chemical accident is blinded which blinds him however making other senses far greater. This gave him the power to see noises much like a bat does but does make him venerable to loud noises. In reality this would have most probably given him many burns towards his face and possibly death.

Spider-Man True and False

This is an idea of how to lay out the idea of what would happen in reality and imagination of our fun loving superheroes. At the top good old Peter Parker has been bitten by a radioactive spider and looks extremely shocked about it. To the the false reaction to the spider which is displayed on the right; him turning into a super human, web slinging, wall sticking spider. To the left is what realistically would happen, he would be sick in bed with a life threatening disease.

Info Graphics

This form of graphic layout is a perfect way to layout what I had in mind on doing. With each superhero detailed and abilities displaying detailed information. Although this is simply a drink menu, the design of it is very entertaining to read through and find out more information on each drink. That is what I have planned for my piece.

Superheroes through the ages

Superheroes through out the years have changed to keep up with what is contemporary.

Peter Parker

When Peter Parker was bitten by a lethally irradiated spider, radioactive mutagenic enzymes in the spider's venom quickly caused numerous body-wide changes. Immediately after the bite, he was granted his original powers: primarily superhuman strength, reflexes, and balance; the ability to cling tenaciously to most surfaces; and a subconscious precognitive sense of danger, which he called a "spider-sense."

Several biologists on the History Channel’s Spider-Man Tech stated the effect of a radioactive spider bite (if any) would not be nearly enough to cause a mutation in a human body. However, they said the use of "genetically engineered" spiders from the live-action movie and the Ultimate continuity was more plausible. Instead of radioactive venom, the bite would have to carry a powerful retro virus (similar to HIV) that would spread through the body by taking over neighboring cells and actually becoming ingrained in the person’s DNA. 

This meaning that the Spider-Man we know could not really exist.

Summer Project

For the summer I started thinking of ideas of projects which are personal to me. Although at first I struggled to think what I really enjoy are a classic superhero film and the back story of them. 

This got me thinking of is it really possible to become a hero from some sort of radiation explosion or other forms of freak accidents which then give people the powers to fly or have super human strength.

Of course in the real world this is not the case and would most probably cause you to die, that why I started thinking of current superheroes and their 'freak' accident and list the real results of what will happen to them. For example Spider-Man was bitten by a radioactive spider which gave him the ability to stick to walls and super human strength but the real effect will probably cause Peter Parker to be ill for a while or in worse case scenario him to die.
