Feat: Superman, ‘DCeased’ #6

IN SUPERHERO BATTLES

SUPERMAN (KAL-EL)
DCEASED

In ‘DCeased’ (2019) #6, titled “End of the World”, Superman performs an energy projection feat. Superman has succumbed to the Anti-Life Virus and battles the heroes of Earth. Faced with the overwhelming odds of the Green Lantern Corps, Superman absorbs the yellow sun condemning the solar system to grow cold and die.

How much energy projection does it take for Superman to absorb Sol?

Superman absorbed the energy of Sol, triggering a fusion process that caused Sol to go supernova within a minute.

Superman generated THE EQUIVALENT OF 1.8*10^47 JOULES of energy, 3292 TIMES THE ENERGY PRODUCED BY THE SOLAR SYSTEM, ENOUGH TO DESTROY A LARGE STAR.

Superman has been turned into the Anti-Living by the Anti-Life Virus. Faced with overwhelming odds at the arrival of the Green Lantern Corps, Superman heads for the sun. Superman absorbs Sol condemning the solar system to grow cold and die.

We will use the lifetime of the sun in order to calculate the energy projection of Superman.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

Superman absorbed Sol causing the yellow sun to collapse and turn supernova within a minute. According to Homework 7 : Sunshine & Sunspots, the fusion process normally converts 0.7 percent of the mass of the sun to energy and uses 10 percent of its mass. In Superman’s case, since the process took about a minute, the fusion process used 100 percent of the sun’s mass.

Let’s calculate the amount of energy in the supernova.

E = mc2 = (2*10^30 kg)(3*10^8 m/s)^2 = 1.8*10^47 J.

ENERGY PROJECTION

Superman absorbed the energy of Sol, triggering a fusion process that caused Sol to go supernova within a minute.

Superman generated 1.8*10^47 J of energy. Superman had to generate a Galaxy Level of Energy Projection in order to absorb Sol.

Calculations for Superman, ‘DCeased’ #6

Mass Of Sol = 2*10^30 kg.

E = mc2 = (2*10^30 kg)(3*10^8 m/s)^2 = 1.8*10^47 J. Ratio Of Energy Per Solar System = (1.8*10^47 J* 1 year*1 month*1 day*1 hr)/(3.846*10^26 J/s*4.571*10^9 years*12 months*30 days*24 hr*3600 s) = 3291.81758307.
