"And to take your example of a living back-up power supply, do you think that any tech company would pay to have a human being just stand around waiting for a black-out? A human being who might fall asleep or go to the bathroom right when the black-out occurs?"

Yes, I do. There's a whole multi-billion dollar industry dedicated to that very idea, known as disaster recovery. My company pays money...a LOT of money...to store computers at a remote site for this very reason. The same site that companies displaced by 9-11 relocated to and ran their businesses from after they had to evacuate Manhattan. He wouldn't be there to keep the systems continually running, but he would be invaluable in a power outage or at a disaster site.

I'm sure you could make a whole scenario where it all works...but I don't credit Millar with that much effort. And yeah, I remember loving that heat vision/mirror trick. Which I think they explained that it was a fragment of mirror from his spaceship, so it wouldn't warp or be destroyed from his vision powers. :)
