For some reason every superpower has to come with a downside. The X-Men, for example, are rejected from society for being mutants. But why can’t it just be win-win? It turns out it can — you just need to be a mad scientist like Colin Furze, and build your superpowers yourself.
In Furze’s latest series of videos, he turns a mish-mash of insulated tubing, compressed cylinders, valves and a vat of liquid nitrogen into a wearable rig that gives him the same powers as the X-Men’s Iceman — mostly.
His blast range is limited and he probably couldn’t survive a day in the Arctic without a snowsuit, but with his newfound scientific powers Furze can freeze water, air condition a room and even make his own ice cream. What else could you ever really need from a superpower?
