Summary
What if you could fly or have super strength or super speed? You'd be a superhero BUT are these superpowers feasible in the real world? Superpower Science: Fantastic Forces and Motion tells you all about the reality of these superpowers when looked at through a scientific lens. The series Superpower Science focuses on the superpowers commonly associated with superheroes and reveals just how scientifically realistic they could be to us mere humans. Each title focuses on four superpowers and explains which science principles would come into action if the superpower existed and what effect these science principles would have on the body. Momentum builds through each superhero story as we question everything and clearly explain the science behind their powers as they would exist in real-life. The comic book format and vintage-looking colorful illustrations paired with quirky and humorous explanations turn what would be considered by many as dry physics principles into high interest exciting books. By pointing out the physical limitations of superpowers, the series aims to not crush children's dreams but inspire them to be interested in science
