Makes you wonder, why this isn’t a thing in Marvel/DC. Any given super team could fund it’s self this way.
How do you think hero groups get the unlimited funds for all their fortresses, gadgets, and supersonic space planes?
Doing detective work, owning a company, selling their genius research, Deadpool sponsoring them, government funding.
Also some supers are working for Damage control, the company that specialized in “there was a hero stopping a petty thief”.
Deadpool can hardly sponsor himself, half the time.
Yes, he didn’t pay his men in order to sponsor some Avengers team so he could be an avenger.
Given the insanely high density of super heroes in Shitropolis, they could probably only get slightly above minimum wage. A workforce glut is horrible for wages.
Depending on how his flight power works, getting it to space and giving it enough velocity for it to stay there https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low_Earth_orbit might be another matter.
Pretty much exactly what I was thinking.
Plus, even if he could give it enough velocity, getting it into precisely the right orbit would likely be impossible without the aid of a computer.
Or AWACs or Aegis cruisers or…
That’s what his helmet radio’s for. So he can be given instructions: “Left a bit. Up a bit. More prograde!”
Yeah, the folks on the ground monitoring him will be able to give specific instructions.
If the engineering departments are closed, who’s building the satellites?
NASA is closed. Raytheon isn’t.
Hell, each company that wants a satellite in orbit has to pay for it.
I had a PC in a Marvel RPG a while back that did pretty much exactly this. Seriously, when you’re space-capable in your shirtsleeves and have an 80-ton lift capacity, fueled by nothing but sunlight (in complete defiance of thermodynamics), there are way more useful things to do with that than beat up petty crooks.
Heh. Brilliant. Change the world and become rich. Well, you can still punch bank robbers as a hobby.
I think that might backfire quickly. There was quite teh Kerfluffle about Russia launching sattelites that could approach other Sattelites for Repair – and possibly military sabotage too.
A superhuman is another story altogether.
Since the tile includes a 1, I wonder where this storyline goes…
“Since the tile includes a 1, I wonder where this storyline goes…”
Well, since Space is the Final Frontier… To Infinity and Beyond?
Superman, a transitional power source
I have had once a joke discousion about that if superman was real, the lunar landing hed never hapens.
“Just fly it into space” doesn’t sound like the extremely precise instructions that would be needed to have a real satellite in orbit around Earth. Likelihood is it will fall down or get lost into deep space.
They should not save in engineers and astrophysicists in any case, really.
Since nobody mentioned it: It looks like he not only will need to “fly it to space” but that box strongly suggests that “some assembly may be required”.
Let’s just hope they’re not hiring IKEA to create their satellites or he will be left out of air before he finishes assembling the thing, specially if they don’t provide him with the right wrench…
I had the Same idea Month ago. And who do you think works at the nuclear power Station?
I THOUGHT More of it as a joke without answer. Hut now i think it would be Radio Active Man. And Fallout Boy brings ihm bis lunch during break.
And all the glowing people work at night at the solare power station.
Typo: sattelites should be satellites
This… is an oddly pragmatic use of super powers for anyone from Shitropolis. That has to create some sort of cosmic-imbalance that will eventually rend the fabric of space-time.
Great, after seeing this Spaceman, now I can’t take this song from my head:
