Science Behind What Makes Marvel Superheroes So Lethal Explored in Video Doc

There are over 5000 characters in the Marvel Universe, the majority of which are superheroes with extraordinary powers. A lot of these powers can be extremely dangerous. Heroes with these powers use them to fight evil, but still, they're deadly and could harm the people around them.

Screen Rant has released a short doc that explores certain aspects of the science behind the powers that these superheroes possess and how they could be lethal to the people around them. 

Ask the average comic book or superhero movie fan to name the deadliest, most lethal, and brutal comic superheroes, and the same names will probably rise to the top: Wolverine is almost guaranteed to take the top spot, with insanely powerful heroes like Thor or the Hulk close behind. But those characters are only blessed with superpowers that let them destroy enemies one by one, with brute force, or directed attacks. But what about the heroes whose very abilities threaten the lives of everyone around them?

The movies won’t go into too much detail, since it’s the claw-slashers, punchers, kickers, and enchanted hammer-swingers that get the most attention. And usually, the least convenient side effects of a cool superpower are written off or ignored completely. But not by us. In the interest of giving the unsung heroes their time in the spotlight – and pointing out how the science of their superpowers poses a threat to everyone they meet – we’re taking a look at Marvel’s most lethal heroes in our latest Docu series.
