Default Vantablack

Vantablack is the new black, so black it's the blackiest black ever made, it's so black that if you coat something with it you can't actually see it because it absorbs all but 0.035 of visible light so there's no light bouncing off it to your eyeballs, whoa, my new TSHIRT!

Probably not, as it would heat up from all the light absorbed.

True! Carbon nanotubes are being trialled for different heat absorption/transferral systems because they are so efficient at soaking it up.

Still, the tech is cool.

Predicted in comedy by Father Ted, where the shop "Habit Hat" has the blackest possible socks, preferred by priests.

Also predicted in the fantasy novel "The Book of the New Sun", where the torturer Severian wears a cloak of "fuligin" the colour that is darker than black.
