Maxwell J. Axiom is no ordinary superhero. He is an African American Super Scientist! He was born to a marine biologist mother and nuclear physicist/park ranger father in Seattle, Washington. He is the scientific version of Shaft; swift, dynamic, & cool. His super-powers come from a lightning bolt that struck him one day and gave him a newfound energy and motivated him to travel the globe and earn degrees in every aspect of science.
Equipped with this enormous knowledge that he was ready to share, he assumed a new identity: Max Axiom, Super Scientist. His superpowers include super-intelligence, ability to shrink to a size of an atom, time travel and X-ray vision. He uses all of his powers to explain the science to the readers.
