    Getting hold of the titanium alloy with gold laminate used would be expensive.

    You know I was thinking…
    If Dean used layers of newspaper with starch and cardboard properly cut and shaped the frame structure and finally painted over to waterproof… he could reproduce the armor, almost…

    There was an ancient captain marvel comic where a scientist comes up with a formula that makes newspaper bulletproof. A crook grabs it, sews a “suit” from newspaper, then dunks it in the formula. Robs banks and so on. Stuff is so rigid that Captain Marvel practically cold-conks himself when he tries to hit the crook. Like all such things, it had ot have an achilles heel: after some hours the chemical burst into flame.

    Iron is 100% recyclable. Always has been. That’s why they had scrap drives during WW2.

    Well since he dipped it in the solution after it was sewn that wasn’t a problem was it? Apparently you missed that part.

    Didn’t Ma Kent go through this kind of cross-examination when she sewed Superman’s costume?

    Ginispics: As Alec Guiness’ character explained in The Man in the White Suit, “The needle will pass between the threads in the weave, just like normal.”
