The Danger Room started out believable enough (by comic book standards, anyway). Built by Professor X, it functioned like a giant Super Mario Bros. level, a training room filled with metal obstacles and firing projectiles. Then it was destroyed by Colossus and rebuilt to include alien Shi’ar holographic technology, which projected images onto force fields to simulate real life, basically turning it into the Holodeck from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Like the Holodeck, its main function is to spice up main plots with a little bit of action and conveniently malfunction for drama’s sake, inevitably releasing a malevolent holographic projection into the real world.
