Marvel Movies Are More Realistic Than You Think

A lot of crazy stuff happens in those mega-popular Marvel movies. Like, the kind of stuff that just defies the laws of physics as we know them. But some of those seemingly impossible antics are actually scientifically possible, or at least plausible.
