Only 1/2 the story

Yeah, yeah, we've heard it before. The same old babble about contaminated ground water, radiation, and negligence...yada, yada, yada. Well, you know it's about time we start hearing the other side of the story. There are always two sides. I want to hear about all the good that comes from nuclear contamination. I mean, there almost isn't a Superhero anywhere who does not owe their superpowers to radiation.

Spiderman: radioactive spider
Hulk: gamma radiation
The Fantastic 4: You guessed it, space radiation

In fact, with the exception of those from the lucky sperm club (Superman, Thor, Wonder Woman), radiation is boss. So enough with this bias reporting, I want the whole story.

PS: I don't really count Batman as a superhero in the traditional sense, because his super power is just being so rich he can buy lots of cool gadgets. Ditto Iron Man.
