    James Daily is an attorney with the Stanford University Hoover Institution Project on Commercializing Innovation. He lives in St. Louis, Missouri.

    Ryan Davidson is an attorney living in Hershey, Pennsylvania. He obtained his law degree from Notre Dame Law School in 2009.

    An intriguing and entertaining look at how America’s legal system would work using the world of comic books.

    Two brave heroes take on the comic multiverse, wielding the greatest superpower of all: the law.

    James Daily and Ryan Davidson?attorneys by day, comic enthusiasts all of the time, and founders of the popular website lawandthemultiverse.com?have clearly found their vocation, exploring the hypothetical legal ramifications of comic book tropes, characters, and powers down to the most deliciously trivial detail.

    The Law of Superheroes asks and answers crucial speculative questions about everything from constitutional law and criminal procedure to taxation, intellectual property, and torts, including:
    • Could Superman sue if someone exposed his true identity as Clark Kent?
    • Are members of the Legion of Doom vulnerable to prosecution under RICO?
    • Do the heirs of a superhero who comes back from the dead get to keep their inherited property after their loved one is resurrected?
    • Does it constitute ?cruel and unusual punishment” to sentence an immortal like Apocalypse to life in prison without the possibility of parole?
    Engaging, accessible, and delightfully educational, The Law of Superheroes is a must-have for legal experts, comic nerds, and anyone who will ever be called upon to practice law in the comic multiverse.
