An oldie but a goodie — this video gives you an amazing, scientifically accurate explanation as to what would happen if Superman punched you. Here’s a hint: it ain’t pretty.

YouTube user Vsauce3 has brought us some pretty fascinating videos, often applying the laws of physics to some of our favorite cartoon and comic characters like Sonic, various Pokémon, and Goku. His explanation behind Superman’s nuke force, dimension-shattering punch is simply mind blowing.

According to this theory, the superhero’s unrestrained uppercut would be 2,800 times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, and would in fact produce so much energy that it would burn over 45 trillion calories and produce a temperature of 80 trillion Kelvin. I can’t even.

Watch the video to hear all the other incredible ‘facts’ about the Man of Steel’s punch and one word of advice: never get in a scuffle with him.

Nobody mess with the Man of Steel, especially not after hearing this scientific explanation for what would happen if he punched you…
