Heroes Wanted (No Tights Required)

 

You don’t need superpowers to be a super hero. All that’s required are strength, courage, and one copy of The Superman Handbook, the first real-world training manual for heroes of all ages. It’s full of illustrated, step-by-step instructions for defeating villains and rescuing innocent bystanders. You’ll discover:

 

     •  How to tackle a criminal

     •  How to stop a runaway train

     •  How to save someone from a teetering car

     •  How to treat someone who’s been electrocuted

     •  How to save someone from a burning building

     •  How to rescue a kitten stuck in a tree

 

. . . and dozens of other crucial skills for any super hero in training. Up, up, and away!

Synopsis:

This guide to the iconic superhero shows readers how to channel their own inner Superman and save the day. Learn how to knock out a villain, stop a runaway car, enter a burning building, and more.

Synopsis:

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the latest illustrated handbook from Quirk — hot on the heels of our bestselling Batman Handbook and just in time for the June 2006 release of Superman Returns. The Superman Handbook shows readers how to channel their inner super hero and make the world a better place. No special powers are required (and you don't have to wear tights, either). Handy step-by-step instructions will teach you: - How to knock out a villain - How to stop a runaway car - How to jump in a single bound - How to find someone buried in an avalanche - How to tackle a runaway goon - How to enter a burning building And much more, including a special section on practical skills (like "How to fix a broken photocopier"). Complete with a mix of step-by-step and full-page illustrations, The Superman Handbook features everything you need to become a super hero. Up, up, and away!
