If superheroes stepped off the comic book page or silver screen and into reality, could they actually work their wonders in a world constrained by the laws of physics? How strong would Superman have to be to 'leap tall buildings in a single bound'? Could Storm of the X-Men possibly control the weather? Face front, True Believer, and wonder no more! Because in "The Physics of Superheroes", you'll learn what the physics of forces and motion can reveal about Superman's strength; the true cause of the destruction of his home planet Krypton and what villains Magneto and Electro can teach us about the nature of electricity. Fun and provocative, "The Physics of Superheroes" will make both comic-book fans and physicists exclaim, 'Excelsior!'
