      I personally never saw anything heroic or super heroic in the ability to shot a gun...
      I like my heroes with powers which I don't possess, hence the reason I HATE Flash

      Couple days late to the conversation but Northstar at super speed vectoring off, a logy a SPLAT while it might not be fatal sure did bring a smile to my face. Now let's replace said hocker with mouthful of seed...

      The vectoring off is going to have to happen. I image it'd be like spitting into the wind while it would be hualing as soon as it left his mouth air friction would soon begin to slow it and then splat right in his own eye.

      Time to e-mail mythbusters.

      Just a thought; have AF ever actually classed themselves, or at least referred to themselves, as superheroes?

      If they're Canada's protectors then is the use of arms part of protecting the nation & it's people at any cost?

      Not defending it, just playing devil's advocate.

      Not sure, it's something I'd probably gloss over without thinking about it; but:
      From the second origin story, called 'Purpose'
      (The Fantastic Four) ""Transformed into... What's this the paper calls them? Super Heroes! That's it!"
      At that moment James Hudson finds the one element missing from Department H. (...) Purpose!"

      So, yeah, according to Mac their whole purpose was to be superheroes right from the beginning. In so many words.

      Or maybe Thompson... but it couldn't be because he was a real jerk to Peter Parker.

      All the more reason for CMSS to hate him?
