Example text

A typical example is shown in fig. 2, featuring a scene from World’s Finest # 93, from April 1958. The big superstars at National Comics (which later became Detective Comics and is today known as DC Comics) are Superman, Batman, and Robin and each issue of World’s Finest contained a team-up adventure of the Man of Steel and the Dynamic Duo. In this story, a crook, Victor Danning, has his intelligence accidentally increased to “genius level” during a botched attempt to steal a “brain amplifier” machine.

I don’t know whether this is true or not, but I do know that if you want to reach out to understand popular misconceptions, then exploiting where we get our cultural perspectives from is a good place to start. And if that means borrowing from Superman, or Star Trek, I am all for it! Now, I don’t want you to think that I bring up comic books and popular misconceptions in the same paragraph because I want to denigrate the former. Far from it! Indeed, the comics sometimes actually get it right, and as James Kakalios describes in his introduction to this far-reaching journey from the gravity of Krypton to the quantum mechanics of the X Men, students often seem to grumble about how the standard examples from his introductory physics class have nothing to do with the real world they will encounter upon graduation.

I have listed, where known, the writer and artist for each comic listed in the endnotes. My omission of the inkers should not be construed as denigrating their contribution to the finished comic (I most certainly do not believe that such a job is equivalent to “tracing”), but rather a reflection of the fact that the artist, along with the writer, typically have the primary responsibility for the physics in a given comic-book scene. Any discussion of physics in comic books naturally invites the scrutiny of physicists as well as comic-book fans, both of whom are known for their, let us say, attention to detail.
