This literally explains itself:
Soon real human beings will have duplicated Akira’s power. (For those of you who don’t want to read through hundreds of manga pages, among other things, Akira can duplicate the big bang on a smaller scale. But even a “small scale” event for Akira wrecks a whole city and throws civilisation into turmoil.) I wonder if maybe we should try and duplicate something a little less dangerous, like Spiderman’s abilities or something? Just a thought.
In any case, if the Earth gets eaten by dark matter, I’ll be awfully disappointed that I didn’t get to see the Watchmen movie.
EDIT: I was awfully disappointed in the Watchmen movie for sticking too close to the original comic. I had forgotten how depressing the original comic was.
