Feat: Superman, ‘DCeased’ #6

IN CRISES

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.

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.

THE KHERUBIM/DAEMONITE WAR

You may have seen the TV show in the ’90s: Spartan, Grifter, Zealot, Warblade and Co. participate in a war between two alien races. In Season 1 Episode 6, Majestyk awakens from a stasis pod. He immediately assumes command of the WildC.A.T.s. to Spartan’s reluctance. He intends to oppose Helspont who seeks an orb that can conquer the universe.

VOLUME 1 COLLECTS THE KHERUBIM/DAEMONITE WAR

In ‘WildC.A.T.s’ (1992) #1, we are introduced to the Wild Covert Action Teams. AP Photo/Image Comics

Volume 1 collects the Kherubim/Daemonite war. Volume 1 collects the following issues:

  • WildC.A.T.S Covert Action Teams – Collects # 1-4
  • A Gathering of Eagles – Collects # 10-13
  • Homecoming – Collects # 21-27
  • Gang War – Collects # 28-34

Despite being an Image series, the series suffered from frequent delays. After September, the frequency would decrease and it would take at least two years in order to get on a monthly schedule.

The Alan Moore run suffered from the lack of a consistent artist and missed deadlines. Though it added some significant contribution to the mythos.

THE KHERUBIM

The Kherubim are human in appearance though they are stronger, more durable and virtually immortal. The downside is that Kheran are almost infertile and rarely produce offspring. However, Kheran do have the ability to produce offspring with other species, such as the existence of Kheran/human hybrids. Some Kheran are known are Lords and are more powerful, with abilities to manipulate energy and other psionic abilities.

Shapers are a subspecies of Kherans. They are shapeshifters and they are able to change their bodies into a mercury-like substance. The Titans are part of Kherubim society and are purple in appearance. They can increase or decrease their mass. They have large yellow horns on their backs. When they change their mass, they lose intelligence.

THE DAEMONITES

The Daemonites are reptilians from the planet Daemon that are capable of possessing host bodies. Daemonites need to possess someone in order to survive on a planet other than their native planet such as Earth. When a Daemonite possesses someone he has access to all the abilities the host has.

The Daemonite can change the host into its Daemonite form for a short period of time. Daemonites are near immortal. They have the ability to regenerate from injuries. The Daemonites are often drawn with sharp claws, sharp teeth and hunched. Though Daemonite Lords like Helspont look different.

Millennia ago the Kherans came into contact with the Daemonites and a war erupted between both species. This war would last several centuries. A small group of Kherans and Daemonites would crashland on Earth and would inspire humanity with tales of gods, angels, demons and monsters. Their conflict would continue till the end of the 20th century, while in space the Kherans would go on to defeat the Daemonites. Kherans imposed heavy indemnities on the Daemonites and their society went bankrupt trying to pay them off. Khera allowed Daemonites to migrate to the more prosperous planet, but all Daemonites on Khera had to live in ghettos.

However, Desaad points out that Cyborg will likely not survive the process and the ALE will cease to exist. At that moment, Darkseid summons the Black Racer with the Motherbox. After Desaad grows Cyborg a new tongue, he takes a piece of the Black Racer and corrupts the ALE merged to Cyborg with it. The ALE virus was born. Though Desaad was immune to disease.

Cyborg is Boom-Tubed to Metropolis. Immediately, he goes online. The ALE virus spread from its patient zero as a techno-organic virus to the Internet. Cyborg attempted to firewall himself but it was too late. an Elseworlds story, was this a celebration of darkness, a romanticization of horror stories? As the pandemonium in Metropolis will prove, Elseworld stories tend to be too dark. That may also be the case for mainstream continuity stories.

Reminiscent of the best horror stories, the ALE virus jumped from media to media spreading horror. People literally tried to tear the equation from their heads. They have turned into zombies.

Thor must search the universe for Galactus even if it takes an eternity. In ‘Thor’ (1996) #502, while waiting for the end of the Onslaught saga, Thor explains to Red Novell the chants he was intoning at night: Thor was trying to enter the Warrior Madness, though he did not succeed, which would increase his super strength ten-fold. However, the Warrior Madness is Berseker Rage and threatens Thor’s sanity.
