That’s right, an unnamed 11-year-old girl from Vietnam is allegedly able to set things on fire with her mind.

Yes, Magneto exists in the wild, or at least partially. Six-year-old Croatian boy Ivan Stoiljkovic can purportedly hang up to 55-pounds of metal from his chest, including cutlery, coins and even a heavy non-stick frying pan.

Ivan, it is also claimed, is much stronger than other children his age and is able to easily carry bags of cement as heavy as 50-pounds. And that isn’t the end to Ivan’s unusual talents, his family say Ivan has also used his ‘healing’ hands to alleviate his grandfather’s stomach pains and take away the pain of a neighbor who hurt his leg in a tractor.
