Superhero Project – U.S. Military Secretly Worked on This
(UnitedVoice.com) – Iron Man is arguably one of the coolest superheroes in the Marvel universe. In the comics, billionaire Tony Stark creates a mechanized suit of armor and becomes a member of the Avengers, a crime-fighting team. A former Navy SEAL now alleges the US military tried to bring the comic to life.
On June 1, former Navy SEAL Kristin Beck, 55, appeared on “The Joe Rogan Experience.” During her interview, she told Rogan about a project named “Carnivore,” originally known as the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS). The program intended to create an Iron Man suit.
According to Beck, designers made the suit out of carbon fiber, titanium, and kevlar fiber. She said the suit was very strong, allowing someone to “carry a thousand pounds,” and it would have been able to stop a lot of threats.
Beck’s revelation wasn’t exactly a surprise. In the 1960s, defense contractors worked on submissions for a similar suit. Then in 2015, the Department of Defense published an article about the TALOS suit. Army Gen. Joseph L. Votel, then-head of the United States Special Operations Command, said designers intended for the suit to “enhance the strategic effectiveness” of its operator in the future. However, the project ended in 2019.
Do you think the US military should continue the quest to develop an Iron Man suit?
