    Aparently the Gremlin also has the power to make his head ethereal to avoid the propeller blades that would otherwise be making fruit salad out of his skull.

    Wow, good point Dan. That little cloth hat must be tougher than it looks, too!

    I also wondered how in the heck he’d steer. “I charge forward into battle! Directly forward! If you’d just not move at all that’d be great, thanks … “

    Even with a durable hat (or gravity helmet), I imagine the constant hammering of the propeller on his head must be disorienting or, at the very least, distracting.

    The physics of the thing are mind numbing in many ways.

    Granted, with the Gremlin basically offsetting his own weight it wouldn’t need to be as great, but what does the power to weight ration have to be on a floor fan to carry itself through the air along with a bomb?

    @Jeff: Since his power is, apparently, merely ‘to float’, I’d assume he still has normal mass, just negligible weight. That said, he probably steers by shifting himself around – I believe hang gliders work on a similar principle, but I’m not 100% sure on that.

    Can’t speak for the Bulletcap.
