The Human Lantern

Fox reports:

This one seems right out of the latest X-Men film.

Scientists have merged light-emitting proteins from jellyfish with a single human cell to create a unique first: a living, biological laser.

[Scientists] pictures a future where cells could even "self lase" from within the body's tissue.

It's a brave new world - with all the ominous connotations.

The character you're thinking of is not DC's Green Lantern, but this minor villain from the Marvel Universe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_Laser

I stand corrected.

Well done.

Would you need special gear to see the glowing?
