Techbeat has recently reported about X-Men enthusiast and inventor Colin Furze, who has somehow figured out how to create real-working Wolverine claws, as well as magnetic boots reminiscent of Magneto himself. Well, it turns out Mr. Furze isn’t content to just let his past successes carry him into the future, as he has successfully decided to transform himself into another X-Men character.

 

This time around, Furze decided to turn up the heat a little and figured out a way to turn himself into Pyro – that mutant who is able to shoot flames out from his body. One can only wonder if Furze is intent on becoming each member of the X-Men. I have to admit, it’d be pretty awesome if he figured out a way to become Cyclops.

As usual, Furze documented his whole transformation experience in a Youtube video. Of all his videos, this one seems the most dangerous, as he straps on a gas canister and creates wrist controls which shoot flames out using a pilot light and propane. The flames are pretty impressive, too – going about 12 feet into the air – worthy of Pyro himself, maybe. Check out the video below.

 

Part of me thinks Furze is so popular right now because he’s doing what all of us wish we could be doing – turning ourselves into our heroes! But, since not very many of us probably have that much time on our hands, we’ll have to be contented with Furze’s efforts. He’s been successful with Wolverine, Magneto, and now Pyro – who will he seek to become next? Anyone’s guess is as good as mine.

 

 

What do you think?

HAHAHA! I just watched all three of his videos. This guy is insane. I love it!

 

We need him working in like special weapons research for the military or something.... or he'll officially become the world's first actual superhero... or villain which will probably end somewhat tragically.

So he'll either become Gear from Static Shock, or Syndrome from The Incredibles. Should be fun to watch either way.

 

Or we can lock him in a cave. With a box of scraps. See how long it takes him to make Iron Man armor.

Dammit, I read this thread yesterday and just ignored it, but it keeps popping up and is bugging me now. Pyro cannot shoot flames out of his body, he can only manipulate flames....granted this guys invention works pretty much exactly how Pyro utilizes his power (by generating the flames from a device, then manipulating said flame using his power), that statement of "able to shoot flames out of his body" is just wrong.

 

That being said, the wolverine claws he did were pretty awesome, I agree with DConnell, put him in a cave with a box of scraps so he can build an arc reactor and some combat armor.
