The Science of Man of Steel: The Good, The Bad, and The Iffy

By Becky Ferreira Jun 19, 2013

It's tough to make Superman super-scientific. He's a humanoid alien with X-ray vision and frost breath who flies around kicking other aliens' butts. However, Man of Steel attempts to fill in some gaps here and there, and the film certainly has no lack of captivating alien technology for audiences to drool over. Here's where we think the newest Superman saga got it right, got it wrong, and just eked by with a pass. Warning to the uninitiated: there are spoilers! Warning to people who think overanalyzing movies ruins the fun: STOP READING HERE! And finally, warning to invading Kryptonians: just take your World Engine to Venus, you greedy weirdos!
