Superhero Backstory
John was born with a rare genetic mutation that gave him extraordinary abilities. He is able to see patterns and make connections that others couldn't. His mind can run through a combat situation millions of times, covering every possible outcome before it even starts. This allows John to counter an adversary's move before it's even executed.

John became known as "The Strategist." and used his abilities to solve crimes, prevent disasters, and protect the innocent.

Game Theory Explained
Game theory is the study of strategic decision-making in situations where the outcome depends on the decisions of multiple players. Nash's work on game theory helped to explain how players would behave in certain situations, and his work has been used to study everything from economics to politics.
The Nash Equilibrium
Nash equilibria can be found in many different types of games, from simple games like rock-paper-scissors to complex games like chess. They can also be found in real-world situations, such as the market for goods and services.
