The Universal Trouser Constant

October 7, 2015

The Universal Trouser Constant (UTC):  The little-understood physical force existing in superhero stories that ensures that no matter what happens to the person wearing them, their pants will always fit.

(I’ve been re-watching some MCU movies (Age of Ultron out on DVD now!), and it isn’t just the Hulk that this applies to.  Seriously, keep an eye on those pants, y’all.)

  1. So, sort of a companion to the Magic Pants trope, then?
