Take last year´s Spider-Man 2. Spidey´s webslinging is impressive, but my favorite part is when Dr. Otto Octavius, a nuclear physicist who turns evil after one of his experiments goes awry, explains that he needs giant, artificially intelligent mechanical arms fused to his spine with nanowires and held in check by an inhibitor chip to control the elements of his homebuilt fusion reactor. Right. A close second: a scene in The Hulk in which mild-mannered Bruce Banner, who has recently absorbed a lethal dose of gamma radiation, sits up in his hospital bed and explains to a colleague why he isn´t dead. Why, it´s the nanomeds. â€I mean, I don´t know,â€ Bruce says. â€They must have, like . . . fixed me.â€ And what are nanomeds?
I mean, I don´t know, but they must be like . . . scientific.
