Overview

What is it about a superhero's muscles that endow them with super strength or super speed? When a superhero reads someone's mind, what are they reading? How does a superhero instantly teleport themselves to a new location? How do normal processes of healing differ from super healing?

In his book, Kevin Boldt, PhD, describes normal human physiology and uses scientific principles to simply, theoretically, and practically answer these questions and more! Each chapter approaches a different superhero ability, describes the analogue physiology in humans and select animals, and describes reasonable theoretical ways human physiology could be adapted or modified to endow an individual with super-human ability.
