Dr. Edward Thomas dreamed of the superpowers of Magnedo from his island home of St. Thomas. While Ed enjoyed snorkeling through her waters, he was also inspired by gazing at the stars and became interested in the properties of plasma. Inspired as a child by the chance to “work” in his uncle’s lab where he felt instantly at home, Ed went on to establish his own lab at Auburn University, where he serves as Dean of the College of Science and Mathematics. Your Career, Your Superpower is a journey of learning, discovery, the potential for collective innovation, and “finding ones superpower.”
