For my elevator pitch to better the world I would like to submit the idea that we need more chemical spills, and more exposure to radioactivity to increase our ability to have super heroes. The general thought is that radioactive material is unsafe and deadly, but according to comic books and graphic novels it is also the key to make humans evolve and become super humans. Would 1000 deaths be acceptable if out of the chaos we got one spiderman, a group like the fantastic four, or something else that we haven’t conceived of? the losses might be massive and unfortunate but wouldn’t it be nice to have someone like superman to refreeze the polar ice caps so we don’t have to worry about global warming, to blow up the asteroid from Armageddon and save bruce willis’ life, and save a small kitten out of a small tree?
