iPhone Powered SuperHero in ‘iBoy’

You have seen it all alien from seeking refuge on earth to Spider bitten superheroes now it’s a turn for SmartPhone powered superhero,  ScreenDaily reports We’re the Millers star Will Poulter, will lead an adaptation of Kevin Brooks’ hit thriller novel which follows a teenage boy who gets super powers when shattered fragments of an iPhone get lodged in his brain.

Sounds funny but there is more to tell from the story and it seems interesting.

Official synopsis of the book:

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hat can he do with his new powers — and what are they doing to him?

Before the attack, Tom Harvey was just an average teen. But a head-on collision with high technology has turned him into an actualized App. Fragments of a shattered iPhone are embedded in his brain. And they’re having an extraordinary effect on his every thought.

Because now Tom knows, sees, and can do more than any normal boy ever could. But with his new powers comes a choice: To avenge Lucy, the girl he loves, will he hunt down the vicious gangsters who hurt her? Will he take the law into his own electric hands and exterminate them from the South London housing projects where, by fear and violence, they rule?

Did he need to upgrade himself onto the new iOS ? His maps will be all out-of-order!.. maybe a discussion for some other day.
