How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Wolverine’s blades are made from a fictitious material called adamantium. According to the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, “Adamantium is a virtually indestructible man-made steel alloy which does not occur in nature…. Adamantium is not an element: its properties do not qualify it for any known space on the Periodic Table of Elements.” What super material do you wish you could create? Do we have any materials similar to adamantium? Can you think of any real inventions inspired by fiction?

Why do you think superhero movies are becoming more serious? Is this trend more or less in keeping with the original comic book stories?
