Scientists and…

…super heroes.

I was watching Ant Man and the Wasp last night and started thinking about the science roots of ant man’s stories. Ant Man aka Scott Lang is an engineer working with physicists. Then it occurred to me how much of the Marvel Universe is based on science. Tony Stark was a scientist and all of his powers come from his science knowledge. Bruce Banner is a scientist and the Hulk. Peter Parker is a science nerd and becomes spider man on a tour of a large lab. Thor’s GF is a scientist, that’s how she finds and helps Thor. Her research assistant is in WandaVision and seems to be the only person who can make sense of any of what’s happening there. I hope it sparks an interest in science for those who watch it. The modern superhero doesn’t exist without science – like the rest of us. It’s pretty cool.
