In the first issue of the All Star Superman comic book mini-series, Grant Morrison famously reduced the Man Of Steel’s origin to a simple eight words. Well, artist Matt Cowan has taken Morrison’s minimalist superhero story idea and stripped it down to pure pictograms. Cowan’s series of “superhero math” prints take basic superhero elements, like Superman’s weakness to Kryptonite or Batman’s secret origin, and explains them through simple mathematical equations.

Head over to Cowan’s deviantART page for all the superhero math equations, plus a bonus set of figures explaining the difference between three of Harrison Ford’s most famous roles.
