Just finished The Physics of Superheroes by physics professor and comic book fan James Kakalios. There’s a great section about how Seigel’s gravity-based explanation for Superman’s superstrength can only work if Krypton was actually a dead neutron star. Even though the existence of neutron stars was first proposed in 1934, it’s seems unlikely Seigel would have known about or understood them when he started developing Superman. Great intuition Jerry.
