What if Superman punched you in the face? (Real science explains!)

With Man of Steel blowing up the box office this weekend, we got a nice refresher course on the ass-kicking power of Superman. But what if his Kryptonian fist crashed into your frail human face?

One intrepid YouTuber set out to break it all down using math and science, and the results are pretty insane. Taking into account all the near-limitless power Supes has received from decades of comic writers, he figures out the cataclysmic results of just one full-powered super-punch.

From a shockwave to face-melting insanity, it doesn't sound fun. To skip to the punch line: You really, really don’t want to be punched by Superman.
