review The Law of Superheroes Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Acters and powers down to the most deliciously trivial detail The Law of Superheroes asks and answers crucial speculative uestions about everything from constitutional law and criminal procedure to taxation intellectual property and torts includingCould Superman sue if someone exposed his true identity as Clark Kent Are members of the Legion of Doom vulnerable to prosecution under RICO Do the heirs of a superhero who comes back from the dead. I enjoyed reading this book The authors consider the actions and behavior of both superheroes and supervillains in relation to the laws of the real world and the applicability of the laws of the lands today Overall I thought the authors did a nice job discussing various legal aspects in regards to superheroes and their behavior how superheroes might be breaking laws than they realize in their zeal to uphold those same laws It does get dry in some parts but even then the authors do a nice job of keeping everything understandable instead of falling back on legalese while trying to explain the applicability of the laws to a given situation There were some parts of the book I thought were very interesting some pretty boring but still educational The weakest aspect of the book is how abruptly it ends It felt like the last chapter could have gone on a bit further and it really needed a final chapter to wrap it all up Instead we get a final paragraph in the last chapter to end the book and it definitely feels like something else is missingIt focused mostly on DC and Marvel which kind of makes sense considering how long these two companies have been in existence and pumping out comics with an occasional dalliance with smaller companies Dark Horse is mentioned a couple of times Of course as the focus is super heroes and super villains that could explain why smaller indie companies are not considered or utilized in the various chapter discussionsview spoilerI did find the discussions about Superman s issues with the IRS and owing back taxes to be interesting and amusing He does have uite a bit of wealth that he has never paid taxes on it would be interesting to see how he would justify not paying the taxesespecially as he claims to be an American citizen It was interesting that technically he could not be taxed for turning coal into diamonds but he could be heavily taxed if he gave the diamonds away as gifts However if he gave a person a lump of coal first and then turned that lump of coal into a diamond both he and the recipient of the lump of coal could avoid having to pay any kind of taxes on the coal I found it fascinating hide spoiler The Laughing Buddha Zen and the Comic Spirit reading this book The authors consider the actions and behavior of both superheroes and supervillains in The Shadows Part 1 Black Dagger Brotherhood #13 relation to the laws of the Nation as Mother real world and the applicability of the laws of the lands today Overall I thought the authors did a nice job discussing various legal aspects in Provenzalische Verwicklungen regards to superheroes and their behavior how superheroes might be breaking laws than they Things to leave behind realize in their zeal to uphold those same laws It does get dry in some parts but even then the authors do a nice job of keeping everything understandable instead of falling back on legalese while trying to explain the applicability of the laws to a given situation There were some parts of the book I thought were very interesting some pretty boring but still educational The weakest aspect of the book is how abruptly it ends It felt like the last chapter could have gone on a bit further and it Lover Awakened Part 1 Black Dagger Brotherhood #3 really needed a final chapter to wrap it all up Instead we get a final paragraph in the last chapter to end the book and it definitely feels like something else is missingIt focused mostly on DC and Marvel which kind of makes sense considering how long these two companies have been in existence and pumping out comics with an occasional dalliance with smaller companies Dark Horse is mentioned a couple of times Of course as the focus is super heroes and super villains that could explain why smaller indie companies are not considered or utilized in the various chapter discussionsview spoilerI did find the discussions about Superman s issues with the IRS and owing back taxes to be interesting and amusing He does have uite a bit of wealth that he has never paid taxes on it would be interesting to see how he would justify not paying the taxesespecially as he claims to be an American citizen It was interesting that technically he could not be taxed for turning coal into diamonds but he could be heavily taxed if he gave the diamonds away as gifts However if he gave a person a lump of coal first and then turned that lump of coal into a diamond both he and the The Stench recipient of the lump of coal could avoid having to pay any kind of taxes on the coal I found it fascinating hide spoiler

review The Law of Superheroes Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Get to keep their inherited property after their loved one is resurrected Does it constitute “cruel and unusual punishment” to sentence an immortal like Apocalypse to life in prison without the possibility of paroleEngaging accessible and teaching readers about the law through fun hypotheticals The Law of Superheroes is a must have for legal experts comic nerds and anyone who will ever be called upon to practice law in the comic multivers. Despite a lot of the comments in the comment section you don t have to enjoy comics to enjoy this book If you ve seen superhero movies or shows you will enjoy this just as much since most of the characters used are characters even the Casual fan know of Spider Man Additionally if you enjoy reading about and learning about the law you can enjoy this book a lot as wellPros1 The comic book examples used to explain how each law could realistically apply in this book is so entertaining1a Each example is an applicable example I was worried that the authors would have to stretch a particular comic example to make it connect with the particular law or rule being explained However the authors mostly select comic book events that involve the law or elements of the law in some way For example one comic book example that is used in this book involves Bucky Winter soldier being tried in a courtroom2 The book includes pages from actual comic books so you can read various comic scenes throughout the book The comic book sections provide a break for the non legal person out there The authors also go back and forth between comic book stories and legal explanations to ensure that the reader doesn t get boredCons1 The last 3 chapters of the book and some chapters in the middle of the book are boring compared to other ones The middle chapters focus on the areas of law that are even boring not that popular among those in the legal field or those that readwrite about the legal field so it s hard to be interestedapply what s mentioned thereAnd the author s in the last 3 chapters of the book chose to look into the legal ramifications of powers like immortalitydual personalities which ended up being not interesting as the legal implications of Superman turning coal into diamonds or Spiderman testifying in a superhero costume2 There was a proper balance between legal jargon and comic book storytelling until halfway in the book or sothe legal jargon would seriously outweigh the comic book portions in certain sections of the bookmaking it kinda boring at timesSummary Overall an enjoyable experienceyou learn about the Law and how it would realistically apply to Superheros
