Welcome back pursuers of superhero based science facty... erm... stuff! For those who managed to stay awake/alive during our last little venture into the world of The Science Of Superheroes, you’d best be prepared for more of the same, because at The Comics Code we believe that if it ain’t broke, then it doesn’t require a call out charge.
Well, something like that anyway.
This time around we’ve moved away from looking at the science behind the weapons of some of the mightiest superheroes and instead have decided to look at the wildlife behind some of the mightiest superheroes. Fear not though, we don’t just throw this shit together; oh no, we’ve spent ages researching this crap especially for you. Oh and this is the sort of tosh that should really please all those insomniacs out there as well... which is currently over 80% of our readers!
For The Science Of Superheroes: Science GoesWild we’ve divided our study of the animal kingdom into three subcategories called Creature Feature, Animal Magic and The Truth About Cats And Dogs. First up, Creature Feature will look at those superheroes who take their names from a variety of creepy crawlies from the insect world. Next up is Animal Magic, which looks at all those animals that turned to crime fighting and became superheroes and finally The Truth About Cats And Dogs looks at everyone’s favourite animals... yep you guessed it... cats and dogs! What we’ll be uncovering is how alike these guys and gals are to their animal counterparts as well as who is more powerful? Hopefully you won’t get too freaked out when we start discussing bugs!
Now most of you will have noticed that I keep mentioning ‘we’, well that’s because once again I’m joined by Ryan the work experience lad for this next journey into the world of science. Yes I know I’m a saint for letting him get involved again after last time, but that’s just the kind of guy I am and anyway I’m keeping him in check thanks to the introduction of the newest member of the team – R.Y.A.N II! Unlike the work experience lad, R.Y.A.N II is not human and he’s is also a useful addition to The Comics Code, something that will hopefully make Ryan take note. R.Y.A.N II (short for Robotic Yes And No) is instead a supercomputer with more processing power than I can even begin to talk about here and with the right input R.Y.A.N II will be able to give super accurate information, the likes of which has never been seen before. Sadly I’ve lost the instruction manual to R.Y.A.N II so for now his input will be limited, but that doesn’t mean his contributions won’t be far superior to anything that Ryan comes up with, so I’m sure it will all be useful. You’ll also notice that this time around The Science Of Superheroes will not be travelling halfway across the globe, mostly because we’re still strapped for cash thanks to Ryan’s previous antics; so instead we’ll be remaining here in stately Comics Code Manor. Anyway we’d best get started, so prepare yourselves for the first chapter, which is all about ants!
