Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What if we could really create Captain America-should we? We are now approaching the point where the Super-Soldier Serum and Vita-Rays meet the reality of bioengineering. Thanks to the convergence of biology, engineering, and technology, we can now alter our abilities through surgery, pharmaceutical enhancement, technological fusion, and genetic engineering. E. Paul Zehr (Chasing Captain America: How Advances in Science, Engineering and Biotechnology Will Produce a Superhuman), Mark D. White (The Virtues of Captain America: Modern-Day Lessons on Character from a World War II Superhero), Daniel H. Wilson (Amped, Robopocalypse), and G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel, Alif the Unseen) discuss the physiology and philosophy of superhumanity with moderator Andrea Letamendi (Under the Mask).
