Deadly Tesla Lightning Battle: Gotta-See Video

//

Superheroes like Iron Man make their way to being super through technology, and now we have some of those powers today.

This video shows two people battling it out using electricity. They're throwing lightning bolts at each other while doused in red and blue lights. The whole choreographed show took place on the streets of Belfast, Ireland and though the fun starts at about 1:40, these guys are workin' it the whole time.
