HANK’S NEGATIVE DAMAGE:

Toggle the Toggle Arrow below to view the calculations.

-12 DAMAGE PTS.

Ton Of TNT For Dubai = (1500 mi^2)(1 Ton of TNT)/(80 mi^2) = 18.75*10^6 Ton of TNT.
-(12 DAMAGE PTS * 18.75*10^6 Ton of TNT) = -225000000 PTS * Ton of TNT.
Giant Man’s Durability = (-225000000 PTS * Tons of TNT)/(18.75*10^6 Tons of TNT) = -12 PTS.
Durability = 3 – 12 = -9 PTS = NEAR DEATH.



DURABILITY: NEAR DEATH

Durability: Near Death 1%
CREEL’S NEGATIVE DAMAGE:

Toggle the Toggle Arrow below to view the calculations.

-9 DAMAGE PTS.

Ton Of TNT For Dubai = (1500 mi^2)(1 Ton of TNT)/(80 mi^2) = 18.75*10^6 Ton of TNT.
-(9 DAMAGE PTS * 4.3921356*10^32 J * 1 Ton of TNT)/(4.2*10^9 J) = -9.4117191*10^23 ​PTS * Ton of TNT.
Absorbing Man’s Durability = (-18.75*10^6 PTS * Tons of TNT)/(9.4117191*10^23 Tons of TNT) = -1.9921972*10^-17 PTS.
Durability = 3 – 1.9921972*10^-17 = 3 PTS = CITY.
