Man Builds Super Strength ‘Suit’

A comic book fan turned wacky inventor has come one-step closer to realizing his dream of becoming a superhero – by building his very own exoskeleton. The prototype has already allowed James Hobson, 25, to curl 170lbs, lift a Mini Cooper with ease and even pick up a truck. James, from Ontario, Canada, hand built the exoskeleton in his garage – which he has dubbed the ‘Inventorium’. Inspired by one of his favorite comic book characters, Tony Stark – aka Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr in the Hollywood film franchise – James set up his own company called Hacksmith Industries. Like his childhood hero, James designs and builds an array of interesting devices – attributing his passion for building machines to his love of comic books.
