This is kinda cool news. I love the Anime. And I do have the Manga (it's huge), but I haven't done more that skim little bits (like Watchmen...my bad), but I like his angle. I enjoyed Steamboy (amazing visuals) as well, so I'm looking forward to this. I have no idea what to expect, but that just makes it all the more interesting.
Perhaps it's about an old experiment with a cross shaped scar, and he uses reverse powers that blow him up.
GIANT MILK FUJI BABY!
