We already know that flying around a virtual world as a super hero makes us nicer in the actual world.
But what if we suddenly gained super strength or the ability to fly. A fun, cleverly designed group of TED-ED videos explores the idea of gaining super powers and what that means in terms of physics and formulas. Yes, learning occurs as you watch the videos.

Super Strength–Not all that helpful catching people falling from the sky.
Super speed? Turns out to be really painful for you…and the person you are rescuing from the speeding bullet.

You know, thinking about being a super hero in real life sorta spoils the entire super hero thing. On the other hand, if you had every super power then you might be just be OK!
