    How strong would Superman have to be to 'leap tall buildings in a single bound?' Acclaimed university professor and author of 'The Physics of Star Trek' shows what the physics of force and motion can reveal about Superman's strength and the true cause of the destruction of his home planet. Along the way, Kakalios also explores everything from energy, to thermodynamics, relating the physics in comic books to such real-world applications as automobile air bags and microwaves. Fun, provocative, this book is packed with more superheroes and superpowers than an Avengers-Justice League crossover. Notes, index. 365p.
