History Channel’s Modern Marvels series on gadgets and technology of fictional characters and universes are always interesting. No character’s gadgets are perhaps as interesting as 007 himself, James Bond. The series has covered Batman’s gadgets, Spider-Man, etc, but Bond (along with Batman) are perhaps the most reality-grounded characters the series has covered. The super spy’s gadgetry is put to the test to surprising results.
Gizmos like Bond’s jet pack, various Q-related gifts and gadgets, along with Bond’s training itself are discussed and given a reality-grounding plausibility. It’s not surprising to learn that characters like Bond actually do exist. Spies are a reality. Most are highly-trained badasses, one imagines.
