6 Eerily Specific World Events Predicted by Comics

Is it possible that comic book writers have super powers of their own? Cracked has four examples from Superman comics (and one each from Wonder Woman and Spider-Man) that were eerily prescient of real-world events, from the atomic bomb to 9/11. The panel to the left is a detail from a Superman comic that was prepared months in advance and released on September 12, 2001.
Obviously there was nothing DC could do to pull the comic out of circulation by then (not to mention that their offices are in downtown NY, so they probably had other things on their mind at the moment). They did make the comic returnable, but few if any were actually returned, because people understood that this was nothing but an unfortunate coincidence and not DC's fault.
