Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon dare to take on a subject that others won't touch: are comic superheroes plausible? Are some more plausible than others?

What are the chances now or in the future that we will see anyone with the powers of:

Batman / Green Arrow
Captain America
Wonder Woman
Iron Man
The Flash
The Fantastic Four
Thor / Green Lantern
The Hulk

Are there technologies -- current, emerging, or that we may see someday -- that would make it possible for human beings to possess and leverage the same kinds of amazing powers these fictional people do?

Tune in and explore.
