About: SUPERHERO SCIENCE: Could Superman REALLY Crush Coal Into Diamond?
COUPLE OF THINGS
1) I know it's no longer the holiday season, but I recorded this in December. Just, y'know, cut me some slack maybe?
2) Also, THANKS FOR BEING HERE IN 2018!!! You all are awesome!
3) Here are those two videos I mentioned. VariantComics collab: https://youtube.com/watch?v=qeNcwcQQ0JA
and Star Wars video https://youtube.com/watch?v=C25xry0NywY
4) We already have the next two videos written and recorded, so we're ahead of schedule this year! Make sure to subscribe if you haven't already!
5) Five is too many things.
If Superman's skin absorbs the Sun's energy then shouldn't he be wearing ... "way less"?
What’s your Snapchat bro
You are dressed with lots of style. I like the bow tie!
He uses his heat vision to super heat the air between his eyes and the thing he's looking at. Superheated gas is plasma. Science fiction commonly sites controlled plasma as what makes a laser sword/gun happen. It's laser vision.
Well maybe coal in the DC Universe is a much higher content of Carbon than in our reality? I mean, it's a place where Earthlings gain Superpowers from exposure to rays from a Red Sun, after all...
I came here for NerfSync. Instead, I get Film Theory.
I'm pretty sure that's Chuck Norris
I always figured this would look more realistic if Supes gave the lump a few zaps of heat vision while he was compressing it. He could burn out the impurities in the coal, leaving only pure carbon, and if he's just squeezing it no doubt he'd just mush it into dust (I once read the 50s Superman story that introduced Titano the Super-Ape and at one point he tries to make a diamond out of coal but just makes coal dust because - to quote Lois Lane - "he doesn't have super-strength like Superman")
ooo nice foreshadowing.
You're not considering Superman's ability to remove the impurities from the coal dust which he Then compresses into a diamond. Trust me, anyone who can shoot tiny Supermen out of his fingertips can extract impurities from coal dust.
Learning about the science, Yay!
diamonds are a supergirls best friend
It almost sounded like Scott said "I got married" at the end when he said "it got barried"
Isn't there a company that turns human ashes from cremation into diamonds?
You mean the Chaos Emeralds
So you can't buy a Coal Mine and Stampede it with elephants like Scrooge Mcduck did in Duck tails and get a Diamond Mine.
Your style is great!!
coal makes power and power equals money
