Pyro from X-Men isn't one of the best known characters in the Marvel universe, but that doesn't mean his backpack mounted flamethrower isn't cool as all heck. And for our amusement, one tinkerer decided to bring it to life.

Watch inventor Colin Furze (the same guy who made retractable wolverine claws) takes on a nerdy tinkering challenge and sets stuff on fire in the process . Throw some space marine armor and that could also pass as a sweet Terran Firebat costume.

It should be noted that strapping a tank of propane to your back and having wrist-activated flamethrowers is probably incredibly dangerous and stupid, so whatever you do don't try this at home.
