I found this book to be a great read starting with the entertaining introduction by Dean Koontz all the way through the end of the book, concluding with a panel of comic book writers and artists talking about their feelings about science in comics. The authors wrote this book in an easy to follow style that didn't confuse the reader with too much technical material, but that blended together the comic book characters with the real-life science that contributed to their powers. The book featured a good blend of real science and imaginary science and pointed out how some comics like Batman relied on the real stuff, while others like the Flash completely ignored the basic rules of modern physics. This was a fun book and I only hope the authors produce a follow up volume covering some of the characters like Daredevil and Birds of Prey that aren't studied in this first book.
