    Actually none of those guys had anything to do with radioactive waste…Cosmic rays, gamma rays, radiated spider. Mutation and metal bonding. OMG, I’m so sorry. Jason Moment. This whole comment was a reactive waste of time.

    Sorry, kid, you’d just get leukemia anyway.

    From The Onion’s “Our Dumb Century”, Aug 29, 1963:

    Boy Bitten by Radioactive Spider Dies of Leukemia Peter Parker, 17, Was Avid Student of Science, Photography

    “This was no ordinary case of leukemia,” said attendant physician Dr. Henry Pym, an expert in the field of radioactive-insect-induced cancers. “This ripped through young Peter’s body almost overnight, affecting his reflexes, destroying his coordination, sapping his strength and scrambling his senses to the point where almost all the boy could detect was a constant tingling. It’s almost as if this hyper-irradiated cancer had the proportionate strength and speed of a spider.”

    Parker’s death marks the sixth atomic-accident fatality in the last month, arriving on the heels of Reed Richards, Ben Grimm, and Susan and John Storm all succumbing to cosmic rays during the maiden flight of Richards’ experimental rocket, and U.S. Department of Defense scientist Bruce Banner’s irradiation by the Gamma Bomb, a weapon of his own devising.

    freeholder, earlier I was going to point out the same thing as to Wolverine, although I was going to let the others slide as at least being radiation-related. But I figured I’d let somebody else have the first Fanboy Moment…
