This week in our Comic Book / Graphic Novels Highlight we bring you Inventing Iron Man The Possibility Of A Human Machine by E. Paul Zehr and Steve Stiles.
About the book:
Tony Stark has been battling bad guys and protecting innocent civilians since he first donned his mechanized armor in the 1963 debut of Iron Man in Marvel Comics. A half century later, the man who showed us all what it would take to become Batman probes whether science and humankind is up to the task of inventing a real-life Iron Man. Applying scientific principles and an incredibly creative mind to the question, Zehr looks at how Iron Man’s suit allows Stark to become a superhero. But superherodom is not just about technology, and Zehr also discusses whether or not an extremely well-conditioned person could use Iron Man’s armor and do what he does.
They do say science fiction usually becomes science fact. This book sounds like it blends an interesting combination of both. Do you think a real life Iron Man is possible?
