(((Come join us! I haven’t seen this version of The Hulk in years, heard some very mixed things about it, but we’ll see how it holds up.))) (((We’ll chat, have fun, maybe a few laughs and maybe draw a little afterwards.)))
(((Thanks for stopping by, guys! I had a blast! We shall do this again soon. Had so much fun talking with you peeps.)))
(((We now have a FAQ! Might be subject to change in the future)))
(((This started off as just something silly I did last night with all the Mars awesomeness going on, and I remembered there was an ask I could answer with this so I decided to kill two birds with one stone! I did this fairly quickly so forgive the sketchiness.)))
((( I also have no idea what device Bruce is holding, I’m assuming Tony gave him some fancy cell-phone so he could stay in contact with Bruce.)))
Ever fantasized about being a superhero? Wondered whether it’s really possible to build a suit like Iron Man’s, or what you’d have to do to become a real-life Batman? Do you think gamma radiation could really create an Incredible Hulk?
Join host Adam Weiner for an evening that will explore the “real” physics behind many of your favorite superheroes by connecting the actual science to the superhero fantasy. His interactive presentation will analyze how the fundamental laws of physics are used, misused and manipulated by our favorite superheroes.
Taking scenes from “Superman” (1978), “Spider-Man” (2002), “The Hulk” (2003), “Spider-Man 3” (2007), “Hancock” (2008), “Iron Man” (2008), “The Dark Knight” (2008), “X-Men: First Class” (2011) and “Thor” (2011), the program will demonstrate how the fictional world of Hollywood movies is also an effective and fascinating springboard into investigating science.
The evening will include conversations with some of the films’ creative teams, who will reveal how many of the scenes were created. Scientists will also be on hand to offer their unique perspectives on the intersection between superhero fiction and current scientific research.
Adam Weiner, author of Don’t Try This at Home! The Physics of Hollywood Movies, currently teaches physics at The Bishop’s School, a private high school in La Jolla, California.
Panelists: E. Paul Zehr – author, professor and director, Centre for Biomedical Research at the University of Victoria Spencer Cook – animation supervisor (SPIDER-MAN and SPIDER-MAN 3) Sean Carroll – author and senior research associate in physics at Caltech, and science advisor on THOR

(((Hello, lovelies! I thought I’d come out of character for a moment to share a really cool little event that’s happening in LA/Beverly Hills next Wednesday. So if any of my super-hero lovin’ followers are in the L.A area such as myself, it might be worth checking out! I bought my ticket last night, but the events sell out fast! The tickets are only $5 dollars, $3 dollars if you’re a student. Plus, events at the Academy are always a blast!)))
I’d like to keep the hairiness of my anatomy to myself, thank you…
(((WELL, THIS TOOK LONGER THAN EXPECTED. Hope you lovelies enjoy it despite the wait.)))
(((OOC: Hee hee! Thank you so much! I’m so happy that this little ask blog I made to get out and share all my feels for a fictional scientist and his angry alter-ego have garnered the interest of peeps like you! I put a lot of thought, heart, and FEELS into these asks, even though there haven’t been too many yet.)))
(((But I can assure you, there are many more on the way. Also, I plan on throwing a livestream later this evening in case you lovelies want to watch me work. )))

(((Final part at last! And now I am going to go sob in a corner with all my Bruce Banner feels.)))
