Forget about what the RIAA and MPAA are saying about Bittorrent: its real danger comes from the fact that supervillains use it!
In Marvel Comics’ Fantastic Four issue 549, sonic supervillain Klaw is back with a vengeance. Made of “solidified sound”, Klaw can create sounds powerful enough to kill and destroy. He was believed to be dead, but was brought back to life as a clone by the evil genius, Wizard. How? BitTorrent. Here’s the relevant panel:
This brings up a few questions, including:
- Who recorded Klaw?
- What recording equipment would you need to properly capture a creature of living sound, and what format and level of sound quality would do the job properly?
- What would the size of the file be?
- Who would download such a thing? “Dude! Never mind the new Arcade Fire album — I want a supervillain in my iPod!”
