Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Have you ever wondered how laser beams might actually shoot out of someone's eyes?

What could cause wings to sprout from the back of a man, allowing him to fly?

If your skeleton was bonded with a flexible but indestructible metal, how would your blood flow and nerves be affected?

Through a combination of informed speculation and science fact The Science of the X-Men gives a scientific investigation of the most popular mutant super hero team in the history of comics. Using such cutting edge science as genetic manipulation, biotechnology, quantum physics, string theory, biophysics, and the Human Genome Project you'll learn how the powers of Wolverine, Professor X, Jean Grey, Rogue, Storm, Cyclops and many more X-Men and their adversaries could work in the real world.

The Science of the X-Men goes beyond the characters and includes an analysis of their equipment and some of the alien races that have crossed paths with the X-Men. You'll discover how Professor X's amazing computer, Cerebro, can find mutants, the technical specs on the X-Men's specially modified airplane, the Lockheed SR-71, and the amazing robotics and holograms that make up the X-Men's amazing adaptive obstacle course known as the Danger Room.
