In rare free moments, when Kim Jong Un isn’t calling President Trump a dotard, launching ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan or engaging in general dictatoring, he apparently goes on leisurely mountain hikes and flexes his never-before-reported superpower: controlling the weather.

The case for the North Korean leader’s cameo role in a new X-Men movie came during a brisk two-mile stroll up snowy Mount Paektu a week or so ago, as reported by the state-controlled Korean Central News Agency.

  ‘Surprise’ North Korea Missile Launch Didn't Fool U.S. U.S. intelligence also had advance knowledge about North Korea’s previous two missile launches.U.S. military intelligence detected preparations for the missile event at least 72 hours before the launch on November 29, according to The Diplomat.

Kim Jong Un to North Korean weather forecasters: Get it right. Kim Jong Un slams forecasters over "incorrect" weather predictions, says state media . Improvements needed to protect people and the economy, Kim reportedly says .

The 9,000-foot mountain is normally a wintry mess in December, according to the news agency, but during Kim’s visit, it was a “marvelous scene with glee at the reappearance of its great master.” When Kim ascended to the top, the mountain showed “fine weather unprecedented.”

It was obviously an homage to Kim, KCNA reported, the man “who controls the nature.”

The fine weather was fortuitous, as pictures showed Kim made the arduous trek up the mountain in dress slacks and shiny leather shoes.

Of course, it should be said that KCNA and other state-sponsored media are known for making claims about North Korea’s leaders that range from mild exaggeration to “Chronicles of Narnia.”

S. Korea to impose new sanctions on Pyongyang: report

  S. Korea to impose new sanctions on Pyongyang: report <p>South Korea will impose new unilateral sanctions against nuclear-armed Pyongyang, a report said Sunday, in Seoul's latest effort to pressure the North after a series of weapons tests that have sent regional tensions surging.</p>The move comes after a rare visit to North Korea by a senior UN official, who called for dialogue between Pyongyang and the international community to avert a potentially catastrophic "miscalculation" in the high-stakes nuclear crisis.

Kim Jong - un “ controlled the weather ” while scaling a 9,000ft sacred mountain in “dazzling sunshine”, according to the latest crackpot claims from North Korea . 'A true gentleman'. First pic of dad-of-three bin man run over and killed by his own lorry.

■ Kim Jong Un and Korean scientists formulated a miracle drug, according to Newsweek — a combination of ginseng and “rare earth elements” that, with one injection, can cure or treat AIDS, Ebola, many cancers, heart disease, impotence, the common cold, “harm from use of computers,” epilepsy, all forms of hepatitis, venereal disease and aging. It also, for some reason, renders its users “anti-radioactive.”

■ Kim Jong Un could drive at age 3 and was a competitive sailor at age 9.

■ Kim Jong Un and North Korean archaeologists also found a unicorn’s lair, or at least “recently reconfirmed” the location of unicorns ridden by the ancient Korean King Tongmyong, according to the Guardian. If people are distrustful of the discovery, it has a rectangular rock in front that reads: “Unicorn Lair.”

North Korea’s prisons are as bad as Nazi camps, says judge who survived Auschwitz

  North Korea’s prisons are as bad as Nazi camps, says judge who survived Auschwitz An inquiry found that North Korea’s Kim has committed 10 of the 11 defined crimes against humanity."I believe that the conditions in the [North] Korean prison camps are as terrible, or even worse, than those I saw and experienced in my youth in these Nazi camps and in my long professional career in the human rights field," said Buergenthal, who was in Auschwitz and Sachsenhausen as a child, as well as the ghetto of Kielce, Poland.

And as The Washington Post’s Avi Selk reported in August, Hasbro could practically make a series of action figures based on the various glowing iterations of Russian President Vladimir Putin: Hang-Gliding Putin, Judo Master Putin, Classic Horseback Putin, Fighter Pilot Putin and, of course, Putin’s tiger cub Mashenka.

But North Korea appears to be taking a lesson from the ancient Egyptians, essentially deifying the leader of their country.

Paektu the appearance of a powerful socialist nation which dynamically advances full of vigor without vacillation at any raving dirty wind on the planet,” the article about Kim Jong Un’s ascent up Mount Paektu read.

And while standing atop the sacred mountain, the supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, in full control of the wind and the snow and the clouds, chose to make a few declarations, according to the article.

Perhaps, he said, they should consider sprucing up the visitors’ center.
