#WEOPPOSEBLACKADAM AND ASYLUM FOR CRIMINALS

In Doomsday Clock, Prime Earth is divided by the Supermen Theory. In fact, 97 percent of metahumans on Earth are of American nationality. According to the theory, their existence is due to a superhuman arms race between governments. As a result, many nations have created their own superhuman teams. Notably, Russia has created the “People’s Heroes.” Indeed, their objective is to defend against “America’s manufactured metahumans.”1 Furthermore, the Justice Leaguer Firestorm has been angered at his purported links to the theory.

In Doomsday Clock (2018) #5, Black Adam makes a public announcement. As Batman intercepts Adrian Veidt in the Owlship, the police pursue in the air. In fact, Veidt is wanted for the purported assassination attempt on Lex Luthor. As the Owlship hurtles down after being hit, Batman watches the Black Adam report. Sinisterly, the former JSAer invites all persecuted metahumans to Kandhaq for asylum. Though a welcome gesture, we suspect it was to build Kandhaq’s own metahuman criminal army. Hence, #WeOpposeBlackAdam and asylum for criminals.

In 'Doomsday Clock' (2018) #5, Black Adam offers asylum to persecuted metahumans on Kandhaq.

AGAINST BLACK ADAM: HE HARBORED KNOWN SUPERVILLAINS AND VIOLATED THE AGREEMENT AMONG NATIONS

In Doomsday Clock (2019) #8, Firestorm accidentally commits terror. Illegally, Firestorm enters Russia’s airspace to clear his name. When the “People’s Heroes” confront him, Ronnie accidentally turns civilians into glass. Then, he escapes. In Metropolis, Clark and Lois watch the news report. Immediately, Clark changes into Superman and heads for Kandhaq.

There, he greets Black Adam and is in search of Firestorm. Quickly, he notices the Creeper and Giganta. Clearly, Black Adam is harboring known supervillains. Sternly, Superman scolds the head of state for his breach. Specifically, it is the agreeent for metahumans to not cross any nations’ borders without sanction. In addition, Black Adam metes out justice without due process. For his part, Superman is the only hero authorized to cross nations’ borders.

FOR BLACK ADAM: HE OFFERED ASYLUM TO SLAVES ON KANDHAQ

In Doomsday Clock (2019) #8, Black Adam reveals he is also harboring slaves he freed. Among them, is a youg boy named Nabil Azmah. As a metahuman, his codename is Sandstorm. With his sand powers, the Syrian boy frees children slaves in Syria.

Though, Black Adam is not really a humanitarian nor activist. As a head of state, he defends the Supermen Theory. In fact, he claims some metahumans in Kandhaq were part of it. Certainly, he plans to raise his own metahuman army.

Overpowered Beings: As Fernus, J’onn J’onnz Is #AWeaponOfMassDestruction Spawning In An Extinction-Level Event

OVERPOWERED BEINGS

Variant Comics

IN EXTINCTION

J’ONN J’ONNZ IS THE LAST SURVIVOR OF MARS

In Detective Comics (1955) #225, Dr. Erdel accidentally teleports J'onn J'onnz to Earth.
In Detective Comics (1955) #225, Dr. Erdel accidentally teleports J’onn J’onnz to Earth. DC Comics.

During the Silver Age, Martian Manhunter debuted. Over the years, Martian Manhunter’s super powers expanded. In The Brave And The Bold (1960) #28, Martian Manhunter joins the new Justice League of America. In later stories, Martian Manhunter was often a replacement for the Silver Age Superman.

Post-Crisis, the 1988 four-issue limited series Martian Manhunter established his modern origin: Martian Manhunter is the last survivor from Mars. Teleported to Earth by Dr. Erdel’s experimental beam, he became a champion on Earth. In fact, J’onn J’onnz was displaced in time and space. Indeed, the Martian race has been dead for years.

OVERPOWERED, J’ONN J’ONNZ HAS THE POWER TO MOVE A PLANET

In JLA (2003) #75, Superman, Wonder Woman and Martian Manhunter pull the Earth back into orbit with the magic lasso.

Notably, Martian Manhunter has been called the Swiss-Army Knife of the Justice League. Regularly, he serves as the League’s telepathic link, strategist, advisor and detective. In fact, Martian telepathy has been able to scan minds, repair damage, contact over vast distances and enter into mental battles. Indeed, J’onn is able to effect his super powers on a vast scale. Even, to the Planetary-Level.

In JLA (2003) #75, Martian Manhunter showcases why he is one of the strongest beings in the DC Universe. In the issue, the Earth is pulled out of orbit by the Atlantean villain Gamemnae. With a spell, Manitou Raven increases the size of Wonder Woman’s lasso. Heroically, Superman, Wonder Woman and Martian Manhunter pull the Earth back into orbit with the magic lasso.

Really, Martian Manhunter has too many super powers as a result of Martian physiology: Super strength, super speed, nigh invulnerability, flight, heat vision, EM vision, telescopic vision, microscopic vision, super hearing, super breath, regeneration, invisibility, phasing, shapeshifing, telepathy, telekinesis, matter absorption. Later, we will see what happens when his powers are unleashed against his friends.

BECOMING #AWEAPONOFMASSDESTRUCTION, J’ONN EVOLVED INTO FERNUS THE BURNING

In JLA: Trial By Fire, Martian Manhunter becomes Fernus The Burning. On multiple occasions, Martian Manhunter has been stated to be the most powerful being in the DC Universe. In fact, the Burning Martians were so powerful that the Guardians of The Universe had to genetically suppress them. Thanks to his love for Scorch, J’onn J’onnz overcame his fire weakness. Indeed, he became Fernus who was so powerful that it took the entire JLA to match up to him.

Only Plastic Man was able to take him on mano-a-mano since his brain was no longer organic. Sinisterly, the Burning Martian needed fire and pain from human extinction in order to spawn. Using his love for Scorch, he detonated the nuclear weapons on Earth. Desperately, the JLA managed to destroy them. However, Superman failed to destroy the last one. Catastrophically, the weapon exploded in Chongjin, North Korea.

In JLA (2003) #89, Flash (Wally West) was able to save the 532,000 inhabitants of the city in a fraction of a second.

In JLA (2003) #86, the JLA battle Fernus for the first time. On the lunar Watchtower, they find Superman phased onto the Justice League table. Soon, Fernus attacks them. Eventually, Batman revives Superman and Manitou Raven opens his mystical eyes. For the first time, Superman sees the enemy: Fernus!

Fortunately, the JLA manage to escape the attack. Soon, they regroup at the Fortress of Solitude. There, Superman plans to use the Phantom Zone Projector. First, the Leaguers must check on the White Martians imprisoned there after Terror Incognita.

Shockingly, the Leaguers find Fernus with the butchered corpses of White Martians. Behind Fernus, they are floating in the Phantom Zone. Though the genocide occurred off-panel.

Per our calculations, Fernus performed a Galaxy-Level feat of Energy Projection.

IN POWER LEVEL

SUPERMAN AND HULK HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR INFINITE STRENGTH

In 'Superman Beyond' (2008) #1, Superman and Captain Marvel lift the Book of Limbo, a book with an infinite number of pages.
In ‘Final Crisis: Superman Beyond’ (2008) #1, Superman and Captain Marvel lift the Book of Limbo, a book with an infinite number of pages. AP Photo/DC Comics.

At DC and Marvel, Superman and Hulk are the top two powerhouses in terms of super strength. Previously, we showcased five feats where Superman demonstrated the potential for infinite super strength. At the same time, Hulk has shown on many occasions feats of infinite power. To find out about Hulk’s time travel feat, visit THE Marvel Universe Strength Hierarchy Ranks The Top 10 Heroes And Villains By The Potential For Infinite Strength.

Over the years, flaming wars have raged over who is the stronger: the Last Son of Krypton or the Green Behemoth. Indeed, if Superman has near-limitless strength, the madder Hulk gets, the stronger he gets. Though they are in the same strength class, let’s list five reasons why Superman may be stronger.

5 REASONS WHY SUPERMAN IS STRONGER THAN HULK

5. GREATER WILLPOWER

In Action Comics (1987) #589, Superman increases the GL energy beam by 20 percent with his willpower.
In Action Comics (1987) #589, Superman increases the GL energy beam by 20 percent with his willpower. DC Comics.

To begin, one of Superman’s greatest strengths in his fights is his willpower. Despite overwhelming odds, Superman never backs down but continues fighting. Over the years, it has been explained that Superman has some of the strongest willpowers in the DC Universe. At one point, Superman was a candidate to receive a Green Lantern ring. In Action Comics (1987) #589, Superman and the Green Lanterns fight a mount of dirt. In an assault, Superman adds his willpower to the GL beams, increasing it by 20 percent.

Though Hulk also has unbelievable willpower. However, in most incarnations, he lacks the corresponding intelligence. And in a battle against such a savage foe, willpower is everything.

4. STRONGER ENEMIES

In ‘Superman/Batman’ (2004) #13, Superman is angry at the death of Kara Zor-El and battles Darkseid. AP Photo/DC Comics.

Notably, this argument is debatable. Indeed, Hulk regularly meets with top-tier and cosmic-level foes. Some of them include the U-Foes, Abomination, High Evolutionary, Silver Surfer, Thor, Sentry, Galaxy Master and even Marvel Zeus. However, Hulk has suffered from low-quality opponents. Due to his baseline strength being lower, Hulk has had trouble with street-level opponents. For example, Spider-Man once knocked out Hulk with a punch.

In the Post-Crisis continuity, Superman more often fights opponents in his strength class. Many are Superman-level, but others like Darkseid, Brainiac 13, Fernus, Imperiex, Dominus and Mandrakk are Planetary, Universal to Multiversal-level threats.

Perhaps, one department of super strength that truly separates Superman and Hulk is lifting feats. Unquestionably, Hulk has better striking feats. In fact, his punches often explode with the force of bombs, or turn back time.

However, Superman may outclass Hulk in raw strength. On two occasions, he has pushed past the boundaries of infinity. In Final Crisis: Superman Beyond (2008) #1, Superman and Captain Marvel/Shazam lift the Book of Limbo. Indeed, it contains infinite pages all occupying the same space. On another occasion, Superman lifted eternity. In JLA/Spectre: Soul War (2003) #1, Superman and Wonder Woman lift Spectre.

2. SAVING THE DAY

In ‘Justice League’ (2019) #25, in a battle against the World Forger, Superman breaches the Sixth Dimension and shatters the Forger’s Multiverse creation with a punch. AP Photo/DC Comics.

In Superman, The Greatest Story, I argue that Superman is the strongest hero. Both on the strength of his story and by feats. What really makes Superman work, is that he is the quintessential American superhero. In fact, Superman always saves the day. In part, it is due to his willpower. Also, it is due to his humanity. Indeed, proving that super strength is also a matter of determination.

Though, Hulk also is a superhero. However, he lacks at times his humanity. In fact, a factor that may mean life or death in a crisis.

In Superman/Batman (2005) #23, Superman uses pressure points on a Kryptonite-Man-possessed Batman.

When it comes to fighting, both superheroes have had a bad reputation. Over the years, Hulk has been viewed as a mindless brute. At the same time, Superman has often fought like a brawler. Generally, Superman is the better fighter. Post-Crisis, he has received combat training from Mongul, Batman and Wonder Woman.

In Superman/Batman (2005) #23, Superman uses the pressure point technique against a Kryptonite-Man possessed Batman. In addition, Superman has mastered the Infinite Mass Punch. Recently, in Rebirth, Superman performed the speedblitz on Doomsday.

In ‘Cyborg’ (2016) #9, Cyborg turns himself in due to the Federal Cybernetic Registration Act. At the JLA Watchtower, Cyborg convenes a meeting with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam. Imminently, the Federal Cybernetic Regulation Act will pass in Congress. After the Technosapien Invasion, anyone infected with cybernetic enhancements will be detained indefinitely. Under so-called National Security, their tech will be made to comply.

At the Batcave, Cyborg hacks into N.S.A. databases to find the concentration camps. There, he finds three locations off the grid operated by a company called Cyber-Tech. No wonder, Cyber-Tech is lobbying for the legislation. In the draft, the same company will outfit every detainee with a standard Remote Access System Override Sequencer. In other words, Cyber-Tech will replace Cyborg and others with their standard microchip. At Amnesty Bay, Cyborg reveals his plan to turn himself in to federal agents. In fact, Cyborg knows his body will be disassembled and his tech reverse-engineered.

In fact, his tech has evolved to re-grow Victor’s body fully. Now, the boundaries between man and machine have been blurred.

Before, Dr. Silas Stone had intellectual rights over Cyborg since he invented his tech. Now, with Cyborg fully human, he can no longer be considered a machine. Indeed, he is Victor Stone. Nevertheless, Victor complies since he plans to infiltrate Cyber-Tech and find out their operation.

AGAINST CYBORG: IN A RUSE, CYBORG FOUGHT FELLOW JLAER SHAZAM

Since Cyborg planned to surrender, he needed a diversion. In a staged fight, Cyborg was going to clash with fellow JLAer and friend Shazam. In fact, Shazam was going to be pro-Regulation. On the other hand, Cyborg was going to be against-Regulation.

But, resisting arrest would diminish Cyborg’s status as a Justice League member. In fact, given the nature of his tech, it would make Cyborg “Public Enemy #1.” Officially, a potential conflict between the government and the Justice League.

IN REDEMPTION

#WESTANDWITHZATANNA AND VICTIMS OF RAPE

In “Identity Crisis,” the JLA is faced with an ethical question. Indeed, the rape and the murder mystery of Sue Dibny drove deep wounds within the superhero community. Without a doubt, the Elongated Man’s wife was beloved. Regularly, she visited the Justice League atop the Watchtower.

Because of Sue Dibny’s rape, the Justice League faced a daunting ethical problem. In addition, Doctor Light was a threat to the League and their loved ones. In order to stop the psychopath, it was going to require drastic measures. But, the JLA members who responded to Sue’s signal and took down Doctor Light were split.

ZATANNA’S MINDWIPE THOUGH JUSTIFIED, WAS EXTREME

Divided, the JLA put the mindwipe to a vote. On one side, Green Lantern, Green Arrow and Black Canary voted against the mindwipe. On the other side, Zatanna, Hawkman and Atom voted for the mindwipe. Decisively, Flash (Barry Allen) broke the tie in favor. Without a doubt, a watershed moment in DC history that led to a breach of trust. When Zatanna lobotomized Doctor Light, Batman also arrived on the Watchtower. To prevent opposition from the Dark Knight, Zatanna also mindwiped him.

Later, during “Identity Crisis,” Batman recovered his memory of the event. Because of the breach of trust, this led to Batman creating Brother Eye to spy on the metahuman population. As Superboy-Prime argued, the heroes stopped behaving like heroes. The consequences were the Omac Project and the “Infinite Crisis.” In retaliation for Superman’s mind-control, Wonder Woman killed Maxwell Lord in cold blood.

AGAINST ZATANNA: THE JLA SHOULD HAVE INCAPACITATED DOCTOR LIGHT’S POWERS

Given its intrusive nature, mindwipe is highly traumatic. Definitely, the mindwiped may end up worse off morally and personality-wise. In Batman’s case, this may explain the dark path he set upon after recovering his memory of the incident. For Doctor Light, it set him on a path to revenge. To this end, to destroy the JLA and the Teen Titans.

Later, Doctor Light accepted membership into the Secret Society of Supervillains. Certainly, it was a darker DC Universe. For its part, the JLA should have followed Green Lantern’s advice. Instead, Zatanna should have incapacitated Doctor Light’s use of his super powers. Also, to protect Sue, Doctor Light should have been sent under solitary confinement at a maximum security prison.

EXTINCTION

WITH SCORCH’S HELP, MARTIAN MANHUNTER OVERCOMES HIS FIRE WEAKNESS

In “JLA: Trial By Fire,” Martian Manhunter becomes Fernus The Burning. In ‘JLA’ (2003) #84, J’onn J’onnz meets with Superman over barbeque. Joyfully, he tells Superman he has overcome his fire weakness. With Scorch’s help, it has taken training to the limits of his mind and body. Soon, J’onn invites Superman to stay for dinner. But the Man of Steel has to respond to a JLA signal and flies away. As he departs, J’onn tells him he wants to remain on his vacation. Though, he intends to come back soon.

Later, the Justice League of America convenes on the Watchtower. Recently, at Arkham Asylum, Blackgate Prison and other prisons have reported their prisoners bawling over their crimes and watching Sesame Street on television. Green Lantern (John Stewart) hypothesizes it is a telepath. Soon, the JLA also find out that President Luthor is catatonic. Courageously, Superman enlists Martian Manhunter’s help. Unfortunately, J’onn is unable to repair Luthor’s mind. Moreover, he is caught in an energy feedback. And, the disembodied voice of Fernus speaks about its mysterious “gifts” to the JLA.1

THE GUARDIANS OF THE UNIVERSE FEARED THE BURNING MARTIANS

In ‘JLA’ (2003) #87, Green Lantern (John Stewart) tells the origin story of the Martian race. 20,000 years ago, Mars was peopled by the Burning Martians. In a few words, the Burning Martians lived on a planet of Chaos. Certainly, they were a “barbaric, ruthless, brilliant” species.2 Moreover, they constantly battled amongst themselves. Eventually, their wars and tremendous power attracted the Guardians of the Universe’s attention. As the self-appointed Guardians of Order, the Guardians felt it necessary to intervene to stop the spread of Chaos. Indeed, Mars was centuries away from achieving space travel.

Battling the Burning Martians, the Guardians wanted to avoid genocide. Then, they turned to genetic manipulation. Brilliantly, the Guardians repressed the Burning Martians with the psycho-somatic weakness to fire. But, as John notes, they were short-sighted. Truly, they neglected to account for the Martian collective consciousness. So, J’onn J’onnz overcame his weakness. Effectively, he gained access to the Burning Martian genetic block through the Martian collective consciousness. As Fernus, he needs the suffering and the burning of the entire human population in order to reproduce asexually.

FERNUS TAKES ON PLASTIC MAN AND THE JLA

In ‘JLA’ (2003) #88, Fernus takes on Plastic Man and the JLA. Previously, Batman recruited Plastic Man (Patrick O’Brian) into active duty. Going toe-to-toe, Plastic Man is able to contain Fernus for some time. Correctly, Batman states Plastic Man’s mind is no longer organic. His shape-shifting which is based on inspiration, can adapt to Martian telepathy. However, Superman fails to destroy the last of the nuclear warheads that Fernus detonated. Unfortunately, the warhead detonates in the city of Chongjin in North Korea.

In ‘JLA’ (2003) #89, Flash runs at light speed to save its 532,000 men, women and children. Suddenly, Scorch turns the tide of the battle. Courageously, the demon absorbs Fernus’ fire allowing Superman and the League to obliterate the Burning. Sadistically, Fernus triggers Scorch’s fire. Jubilantly, Fernus is about to spawn only to find Martian Manhunter ripping through his entrails. The faith of the JLA freed him from the Dreamwalk. Meanwhile, Green Lantern turns off the city-wide flames with a wave of water. Finally, Martian Manhunter obliterates Fernus with his Martian vision.

MISTER FREEZE (VICTOR FRIES)
NEW EARTH

In ‘Batman: Mr. Freeze’ (1997) #1, Mr. Freeze performs an energy projection feat. In a flashback, Mister Freeze remembers his battle against Batman and Robin. During the battle, Robin is frozen by Mister Freeze’s Cold Gun.

How much energy projection does it take for Mister Freeze to freeze the 57 kg Robin with his Cold Gun?

IN THE ISSUE, MISTER FREEZE BLASTED HIS COLD GUN AT ROBIN TURNING HIM INTO FROSTBITE.

IMPORTANTLY, MISTER FREEZE GENERATED -8959505.1 JOULES OF HEAT CAPACITY. SIMILARLY, THE EQUIVALENT OF 803.603118317 TIMES THE POWER OUTPUT OF NEW YORK CITY’S 6TH AVE. SKYSCRAPER.

In the issue, Mister Freeze froze Robin with his Cold Gun.

In our calculations, we will use the fact that the Cold Gun gives frostbite.

MISTER FREEZE’S COLD GUN


In ‘Batman: Mr. Freeze’ (1997) #1, Batman has recovered Mister Freeze’s Cold Gun. Successfully, he reverses the defrosting process of the Cold Gun. In the end, Robin is restored.

In 'Batman: Mister Freeze' (1997) #1, Batman reverse-engineers Mister Freeze's Cold Gun's defrosting to save Robin and Gotham City.

To sum, Mister Freeze’s Cold Gun turns individuals into ice by giving them frostbite. Then, we will use this statement to calculate Robin’s frostbite.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

In the graphic novel, Mister Freeze gave Robin frostbite with his Cold Gun. As a matter of fact, NHS defines frostbite as damage to skin and tissue as a result of exposure to temperatures below -0.55C° (31F).

Let’s calculate the heat capacity required to lower body temperature from 37C° to -0.55C°. First, “Chapter 95 Cold Weather Survival Time” states water has a specific heat of 4186 J/kg C°. Second, the equation to calculate the heat capacity is:

\begin{equation*} Q = mc\Delta T \end{equation*}

Q = mcΔT = (57 kg)(4186 J/kg C°)(-0.55C° – 37C°) = -8959505.1 J.

ENERGY PROJECTION

To sum, Mister Freeze generated -8959505.1 J of heat capacity. Moreover, Mister Freeze had to generate a negative City Level of Energy Projection since he likely hit Robin with a blast 803.603118317 times greater than the power output of 6th Ave. New York skyscraper.

Toggle the Toggle Arrow below to view the calculations.

Calculations for Mr. Freeze, ‘Batman: Mr. Freeze’ #1

Specific Heat H2O = 4186 J/kg C°.
New York Skyscraper Power Output = (40137000 J/s*1 hr)/(3600 s/1 hr) = 11149.1666667 J.

Q = mcΔT = (57 kg)(4186 J/kg C°)(-0.55C° – 37C°) = -8959505.1 J.
Comparison = (8959505.1 J)/(11149.1666667 J)= 803.603118317.

WONDER MAN (SIMON WILLIAMS)
EARTH-616

In ‘Avengers’ (2012) #31, titled “End Times”, Wonder Man performs a fighting skill feat. To begin, the Avengers are recovering from the fallout of “AvX”. Meanwhile, Wonder Man has come to Avengers Tower to ask Captain America for help. Suddenly, Red Hulk attacks him. During the fight, Wonder Man chokes out Red Hulk.

How much fighting skill does it take for Wonder Man to choke out Red Hulk?

IN THE ISSUE, WONDER MAN CHOKED OUT RED HULK IN A PLANETARY LEVEL ATTACK.

IMPORTANTLY, WONDER MAN GENERATED THE EQUIVALENT OF 1.545431*10^18 CALORIES BURNED. OR, 6.4660831*10^21 JOULES OF BIOCHEMICAL EXPENDITURE.

SIMILARLY, THE ATTACK WAS STRONGER THAN 9.2958253*10^12 MEN AND 2.5 TIMES THE ENERGY RECEIVED BY THE EARTH. TO SUM, ENOUGH TO DESTROY A SMALL COUNTRY.

Wonder Man choked out Red Hulk. Wonder Man likely held Red Hulk longer than he can hold his breath.

We will use Hulk’s lung capacity from a crossover comic to estimate Red Hulk’s lung capacity.

HULK’S DURABILITY

In ‘Batman vs The Incredible Hulk’ (1995) #1, Batman attacks Hulk with sleeping gas. Since Hulk can hold his breath for half a year, the Dark Knight attacked a pressure point. Using martial arts, Batman kicked Hulk at the solar plexus. Incredibly, this caused the Green Goliath to gasp for air, knocking him out.

In 'Batman vs The Incredible Hulk' Batman performs a super strength feat. During the battle, Batman kicks Hulk at the solar plexus, depriving him of air and making the monster susceptible to sleeping gas.

We will use this feat to calculate Hulk’s lung capacity.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

In “Feat: Batman, ‘Batman vs The Incredible Hulk’ #1”, we extrapolated the Hulk’s lung capacity. The energy of Hulk’s vital capacity was 6.4660831*1021 Joules.

Since Red Hulk has the Hulk’s super powers, we can estimate him to have similar vital capacity.

FIGHTING SKILLS

Wonder Man generated 6.4660831*1021 Joules of biochemical energy to choke out Red Hulk. Simon had to generate a Warrior Madness Level of Fighting Skills since he likely hit Red Hulk with a Planetary attack.

According to Battle Ranker: The Competition, since Wonder Man generated a Planetary Level choke hold, he can defeat 500000001-10E13 men in combat.
