Unbreakable and the "Real World"

In the film Unbreakable, it was posited that comic books were based on reality. Someplace, someone, experienced something akin to comic books. Then the commercial machine took hold of that and pulped it out into what we think of as comics, with super powers and so forth.

The four part series from Marvel, "Unstable Molocules" demonstrates that. You see, the "Fantastic Four" were not fictional people. They were based on real people that the comic artists knew. And "Unstable Molocules" is that story. No superpowers, nothing incredible... just real people. Real events. With sources and notes at the end of every issue.

Terribly cool shit.
