I’m a nerd. And while that means I love superhero movies, it also means I look at the physics. How does the Hulk become almost indestructible? How does the material used on Iron Man’s suit absorb kinetic energy? But it is the recent The Falcon and the Winter Soldier that got me thinking about how Captain America’s shield is tossed and caught.
One of the the most iconic MCU superhero moves is Captain America throwing his shield against an opponent, only to have it bounce right back into his muscular arms. And now, one YouTuber has created a Cap shield that actually bounces back when you throw it against an object.
Maybe physics and superheros can co-exist. Check out how us lowly humans can become super — Just takes a little science.
