Superheroes may always win, but how well does that theory hold today?

New Scientist and physicist Pablo Gleiser (via Hot Air) talk about why superheroes always win. If only that could still be regarded as true, but, as Identity Crisis, Avengers: Disassembled, Countdown to Infinite Crisis, and Civil War have shown they can pretty much lose because the editors dictate it to go that way, regardless of whether it makes sense or not.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
