By James Daily and Ryan Davidson, Gotham Books, a division of Penguin, 320 pages, $26

Does Superman violate the Fourth Amendment when he uses X-ray vision? If Spider-Man testifies in court wearing his costume, does this violate the Sixth Amendment’s Confrontation Clause? Can the government regulate superpowers as weapons without running afoul of the Second Amendment? Would a court recognize Batman and Robin as a limited partnership? If a supervillain commits a federal crime against an American superhero on Mars, can the supervillain be charged in federal court in the U.S.? These are just some of the questions the authors ask in an interesting and quirky new book that certainly deserves praise for originality.
