Iron man was a block buster movie last summer, and now the technology may not be science fiction. Lockheed Martin, in conjunction with the US Military, is perfecting a set of super soldier exoskeletons. This system will not allow American soldiers to fly around the battlefield, but it will increase strength, speed and endurance. The system is called the HULC anthropomorphic exoskeleton.
It is a hydraulic system made of light weight titanium that allows soldiers to carry a lot more weight at much greater speeds. It uses an onboard micro computer to marry it to the user movements allowing a full range of motion.
So, super villains, or just enemies of the US: beware!
