Ever wonder how the Flash deals with friction, momentum, and body odor? And how can his neural synapses and caloric intake keep up with his super speed? How do Aquaman and Namor the Submariner breath underwater? Is there any scientific evidence for a lost continent of Atlantis? Are mutants real? Would gamma rays really turn Bruce Banner into the Incredible Hulk, or would they simply kill him? This entertaining and insightful look at the history of comic book superheroes is a nitpicker's paradise as the authors pick apart the superhero science. Oliver Wyman presents the material in a straightforward manner except when quoting from comic books, at which times he dons the disguise of clichéd speech patterns, perhaps with a bit too much ridicule in his voice.
