We are that much closer to living out our adolescent power fantasies

Thank the lord above, X-ray vision is now available. And you don't even have to be from Krypton or take a little swim in a pool of radioactive waste to get it! Advanced Warfare Making Crime Fighting All That Much Easier:

Troops conducting urban operations soon will have the capabilities of superheroes, being able to sense through 12 inches of concrete to determine if someone is inside a building.

The new "Radar Scope" will give warfighters searching a building the ability to tell within seconds if someone is in the next room, Edward Baranoski from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Special Projects Office, told the American Forces Press Service.

Finally! The technology is here! Its time for us with troubled pasts involving wholesale slaughter of those who are near and dear to us to start dispensing vigilante justice, because that was all that we were waiting for! And yes, I know what you're thinking: Is it waterproof and rugged and run on AA batteries?

Think no more:
The Radar Scope will be waterproof and rugged, and will run on AA batteries, he said.

That's hot shit! You think Punisher had that kind of equipment at his disposal in his first mini-series? Hell no!

You're back! *Faints from the excitement, a total disgrace to her gender. Is dragged home by bitching Zamarons*

And while I was gone, comics up and got sexist on me. A Superman comic grabbed my ass last week at the comic shop!

Okay, I don't get it.

If no bullets are coming out of the building, then it's either empty, or the occupant is friendly and as such you can just knock and go in for a cuppa.

If bullets are coming out at you, then call an airstrike or break out the grenades.

Don't need any of your fancy X-ray vision in this army!
