Superman, Spider-Man, Ant-Man, Flash, Thor or Iron Man - superheroes that save the world and help teach students. The physicist James Kakalios has a special use for them. Their extraordinary feats help him explain various principles of physics - from Newton's laws to quantum mechanics. And he does even more than that. Do you know how your alarm clock or your fridge work? The man who has the answer claims that the human superpower is intelligence and it's only up to us how we use it.
