"Now get out of there before you get hit with enough gamma radiation to make Hiroshima look like a small bonfire."Jimbo interjects, "But ma'am, here's his one chance to be a superhero." The lab erupts with laughter. "Don;t be silly, Mr. Bo," retorts Dr. Tucker. "Superheroes only belong in comic books."You make a slight chuckle as well.
