    By all rights, I should have loved this book. I mean look at it! It combines two of my favorite things, as you loyal readers should know: science and superheroes.I've been a big fan of science since I was a kid. I used to flip through Carl Sagan's Cosmos when I was young, just barely understanding the enormous ideas he was presenting in it. My father had the Time/Life Science Series (which I still have somewhere in a box back in my mother's house) and I spent days going through those, learning a [...]

    This book is AMAZING. If you love science and super heroes it's for you. If you love comics and their history, and are interested in the scientific possibilities of superheros this is for you. If you need a book that will introduce you to probably about half of all modern scientific concepts of any value, and want a really interesting leeway into it (superheros) this is for you. I basically can't say enough good things about this book and how damned awesome it is.What happens throughout most of [...]

    It’s been ten years since The Science of Superheroes by Lois Gresh and Robert Weinberg was published. Over that time, and especially in the five years or so that the book has been on my shelf, there is absolutely no doubt that comics and superheroes have gone mainstream.2002 was also the year that the first Spiderman film was released, a huge film that can be credited with the explosion of comic-based blockbusters as well as kick-starting Marvel’s revival (they went from being nearly bankrup [...]

    Until the recent blockbuster comic book movies convinced sports fans that men in tights who were not pro wrestlers could be cool, we comics geeks hid our books like family secrets. But the days of proudly admitting readership might be at an end, because The Science of Superheroes deals a blow to comic book credibility that not even $100 million in opening weekend box office receipts can heal: while superheroes may be cool, many of their powers are scientifically unsound.Authors Lois Gresh and Ro [...]

    Quite an entertaining book, but aside from a few interesting science facts and comic book history information, it doesn't tell us anything we didn't already know. The main premise of the book is to explain exactly why most superheroes are impossible. As readers, however, we already know they are impossible. We read comic books for the same reason we read novels: to be entertained. If we are looking for accurate science info, then we go elsewhere.The thing that really bothered me is the debate th [...]

    #2013-1So as reading this book some of well-known superheroes are proved either impossible or probable, scientifically of course. Some hardcore geeks might defend their heroes. But Mia tends to go for weirdos the likes of Batman, seriously guy who hides behind mask and lives two different lives definitely has some issues, then Hawkeye, more because of the archery -Robin Hood was her first book along with Jane Eyre- and the fact that it's Jeremy Renner who portrays him.Oh she's still falling head [...]

    85 - 2014Baca ebooknya tidak tamat-tamat, eh baru belakangan tahu tahun kemarin sudah terbit terjemahannya, mana yang nerjemahin Mas Ronny lagi.Jadi memang harus kuakui, kalau aku membaca komik, terutama komik superhero, biasanya akal sehat dan logikaku kusingkirkan dulu jauh-jauh. Kalau tidak, bisa-bisa aku tidak menikmati jalan ceritanya. Pokoknya, segala keabsurdan sains dan teknologi yang disajikan penulis komik, aku terima saja bulat-bulat bahwa anything can happen in comic world. Jangankan [...]

    Good idea, bad execution. I’m honestly kind of impressed by how The Science of Superheroes manages to insult its readers. It’s bizarre to read a book where the authors talk down to the primary audience.Divided into chapters about specific superheroes (and then focusing on parts of their story), the book takes some weird tangents. For example: out of everything interesting about DNA as it relates to mutations (superheroes involved: X-Men), the authors decided on a diatribe about the creationi [...]

    عبر قراءتي في هذا الكتاب فإني لم أتوقف عن الاندهاش والاستمتاع. كنت مستمعاً لأني أحب هذا النوع من القصص والكتاب أعطاني خلفية ممتازة عن تطورها التاريخي كشخصيات وكصناعة ترفيهية أيضاً، وربطها لي بتطور كتابة الخيال العلمي في الغرب. ذاك كان الشق الممتع. أما الفائدة ففي القيمة الع [...]

    Pur non essendo appassionata di fumetti questo libro mi è piaciuto molto: parla in modo approfondito dei vari eroi spiegandone non solo le caratteristiche "scientifiche", ma anche il contesto sociale in cui sono nati, il carattere e le peculiarità più prettamente narrative. E allo stesso tempo spiega il fenomeno "fumetto", che mi ha aiutato ad entrare meglio nel contesto e a capire anche alcune scelte degli autori. Autori dei quali è riportata una interessantissima intervista alla fine del l [...]

    preso in bibliotecaA metà tra un excursus sulla storia del fumetto supereroistico e un testo di divulgazione scientifica a tutto tondo, gli autori presentano una carrellata di personaggi DC e Marvel (con qualche incursione nella "minori") e ne analizzano la genesi e le caratteristiche, spiegando perchè e come la loro storia sia o meno plausibile e "realistica" scientificamente.Probabilmente quello che mi ha fatto abbandonare la lettura è stato il tono troppo serio e le lunghe spiegazioni astr [...]

    This book had an interesting way of presenting where the science behind superheroes was incorrect, but noting ideas that could theoretically happen. For example, the book identified that the infamous gamma rays could not make an average person into a 300 pound angry green monster, the "GFP Hulk" could actually exist! The book also explains why Bizarro could not have come from a square planet. Again, if you enjoy a fun and interesting look at science applied to the superhero world, check out this [...]

    It was an interesting book all around. Taking each of the big super heroes, like Superman, Batman, Spider-Man etc. and discussing how real or fantastical their powers/abilities are or could be. It was a very male superhero oriented book, but, the authors also explain even that.Truthfully though, my favorite part of the book had nothing to do with comic books, or super heroes, or any of that, but it was the small section where they totally and utterly took apart Creationism. Put a smile on my fac [...]

    Ok, l'idea di partenza era già particolare: confrontare i fumetti con la realtà del mondo fisico e dimostrare quanto di vero o falso possa esserci.Il problema degli autori è che forse avrebbero dovuto ricordarsi che i fumetti nascono soprattutto per svagare chi li legge, quindi non è necessario arrivare ad "annientarli" per scrivere un buon libro di divulgazione.L'idea di base però era molto carina.

    If Sheldon Cooper would have wrote a book, this would be it. Despite not being a science expert, I found the book easy to understand and fun to follow. It picks various superheroes and explains what would need to occur from each to be real and how each would and could adapt to our world. If you are a superhero dork , give it a shot.

    Stephan Anstey
    Well, obviously I loved this. The best part was that I never bought it, I just read a little at a time every time i visited borders over more than a year. It was so engaging and fed my adoration of comic books.

    Melinda
    AMAZING! Ever wanted to know how Superman flies,,,what the story behind Antman wasis is the book for you! Centric more on the comics than the movies, so beware!

    Alex
    An interesting take on the fantastic powers displayed by superheroes and the possibility of their abilities functioning in our world.

    i am a nerd. fun book

    Boyd
    Great Read for the Scientist and Comic Geek.

    Rafael Lam
    Ótima leitura para quem sempre teve a curiosidade de como deveria ser os super-heróis no mundo real.

    Paul
    A fun and insightful book which lost a star because of a long tangent about why creationists are wrong (the argument did not really help the thesis of the section).

    Brian Carr
    this book is really fun to read and you also learn a little science to boot.

    Jagoan super yang terakhir dibahas dalam buku ini betul-betul kejutan!

    Eric F Knox
    Nice, fun little book with solid science behind it.

    Adam Flor
    Batman is the only superhero that can withstand the rigors of science.

    Robert Mclean
    Read one with a different cover.

    Timothy Boyd
    Want to know what makes the Hulk or Superman really work. Interesting book on the real science applications of the powers of superheroes. Recommended

    Cade Bengert
    Wonderfully entertaining and informative, this book is a must ready for comic and science nerds alike. Very interesting and enjoyable read. Highly recommend.

    Got me hooked on books by Lois Gresh. A superfun read!
