But what is the science behind strength, speed, sight, and flight? And does anything or anyone in our world have similar abilities to Superman? Superman Science explores how real-life science and engineering relates to the Man of Steel's famous powers—and the real-world connections may surprise you.

"In this science book readers learn about flight, X-rays, speed, strength, and more. The text is broken down into examinations of each power Superman has at his disposal and expands upon it with real-world science. . . .The information is presented in easily digestible paragraphs that can be read discretely. Small scientists can read about one area or several with ease. . . .A serviceable science text for curious and nerdy readers." - Kirkus Reviews

"The authors found a great hook to make science cool — Superman. Learn about flight, sight, speed, and strength all within the framework of superman. Text boxes accompanied by color photographs, illustrations, and backgrounds make this a digestible and interesting nonfiction science book. (Also check out Batman Science to learn about engineering vehicles, body armor, wings, and more.)" - Imagination Soup

"STEM connections abound. . . .Illustrations, faithful to Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s original comic-book stylings, share space with full-color photographs for a highly engaging layout. In the margins, trivia about Superman’s origins and abilities are offered and will satisfy comic-book fans. By celebrating the most iconic superhero of all time, Biskup is inspiring the next generation of engineers and generating excitement about future scientific advancement." - Booklist

Tammy Enz became a civil engineer because of her awe of the massive steel bridges that spanned the Mississippi River. She just had to figure out how they worked. Today, she still likes tinkering and figuring out how things work. When she isn't tinkering, she fixes up old houses and conducts experiments in her garden and kitchen. Most of all, she loves reading books about anything and everything and asking 'why?'
