So Superman can turn up the intensity of his x-ray vision to emit gamma radiation,weve seen in AC #2 him emitting micro waves and stuff,so this seems pretty logical(as logical as real world science can get in comics) so anyway......
i'v read about a radio surgery technology known as the gamma knife(used for brain tumors),not a knife but more like a concentrated release of gamma rays that destroy brain tumors,malignant or benign without affecting the surrounding healthy brain tissue(unlike chemo which is unpredictable) so Superman can emit concentrated gamma rays from his eyes.....i don't kno if its been discussed in comics before about superman curing cancer and if he can or not and if he should or not...i, so far haven't come across a story like that and im unsure if its been done.
what im getting at is clearly if he wanted to he could try,so does 'with great power comes great responsibility' hold up here? and everything he's been taught about being a good person and helping people out?
Should Superman spend an hour every other day curing people with brain cancer? does he go down that path or not? is it his moral responsibility? i kno its comic books but still should it be addressed in comics if it hasn't been already?
i don't really know what to think about it, thats why im sharing my thoughts here.So,what do you guys think?
