Batman is not your average crime fighting superhero. Lacking any superpowers, technology is Batman’s greatest weapon. He creates out of necessity, using science to give him an edge over his enemies. But is it fiction, or could it really exist?
From the Batsuit and Batarangs to the Batmobile and the Batplane, Batman Science explores real-life science and technology, and their often very real connection to Batman’s remarkable success.

What could be better?! Great for kids who hate textbook reading. My son loves graphic novels, so this works great for him!
This is such a fun book. My son sits and reads it all on his own without me having to tell him to.
He loved all the neat facts in it.
This is by far my 7th grader's favorite part of his curriculum! He sat down and read through the book and then reread everything a month later. He is full of fascinating facts he learned from Batman Science!
I don't like reading. I always get bored easily, and put the book down quickly. My mom bought Batman Science for me to read. At first I thought: this is childish. I don't like Batman anymore. However, I was wrong. This is an amazing book! I read the entire book in one day. It's set up in short sections, with lots of colorful pictures to go along with the facts. I loved it. Awesome book!
