James Daily, J.D. and Ryan Davidson, J.D. are the co-authors of The Law of Superheroes (Gotham Books 2012). The book uses comic book scenarios, much as previous volumes on physics and philosophy, to answer questions such as "Would mutants have civic rights?" and "Could Batman patent the Batmobile?" The authors deftly combine their legal background with a keen sense of the comic book universe to introduce a variety of legal concepts in an approachable fashion. This humorous take on legal topics could easily fit into an introductory public law class or general education course on law and society.
