Peyton Westlake is a scientist who has discovered a way to produce synthetic skin. This could revolutionise skin grafting, except for one minor glitch; the synthetic skin degrades after 100 minutes of exposure to light. When gangsters attack Peyton, he is horrifically burnt, and assumed dead. In his quest for revenge, Peyton, aka the Darkman, is able to take on the appearance of anyone (using the synthetic skin,) but he only has 100 minutes per disguise.Written by
During the scene in the lab when Peyton and his assistant discover that the synthetic skin is photosensitive, they alternate using the microscope though neither of them re-focuses the lenses. No two people have exactly the same eyesight and given the magnification used, they would almost certainly have to adjust the lenses for their own eyes after they use it. Yakitito also keeps his glasses on while looking at the microscope but this could be down to his excitement at the discovery. See more »
