SHAZAM (BILLY BATSON)
PRIME EARTH

In ‘Justice League of America’ (2013) #8, titled “Paradise Lost”, Shazam performs a super strength feat. The Justice League has been imprisoned in prisons that are actually illusions created by the Crime Syndicate with technology. Finding Shazam’s prison, J’onn is engaged in a fight. During the fight, Shazam at full power punches Martian Manhunter who is at less than half strength.

How much super strength does it take for Shazam to punch Martian Manhunter at less than half strength?

Shazam has been imprisoned in a prison by the Crime Syndicate that turns out to be an illusion. Martian Manhunter states Shazam is at full power whereas J’onn is at less than half strength.

We will use this statement to estimate J’onn being at less than half strength.

MARTIAN MANHUNTER’S SUPER STRENGTH



In ‘Action Comics’ (2014) #34, Superman and Martian Manhunter together manage to slow the descent of the Brainiac Mothership that was descending on Earth at 36000 miles per hour.

We will use this feat to calculate Martian Manhunter at less than half strength.

NUMBER CRUNCHING



In the issue, it is stated that the Brainiac Mothership is bigger than Earth. Let’s estimate it to be twice the size of Earth. K2-18b exoplanet has been found to be 2.6 times the Earth’s radius and 8.6 times its mass. If we assume the Brainiac Mothership to be the size of K2-18b, then its mass is roughly 8.6 times the mass of Earth. Let’s calculate the kinetic energy of the Brainiac Mothership.

KE = (1/2)(mv2) = (5.972 × 10^24 x 8.6)(16093.44)^2) = 1.3301972*10^34 J. Let’s calculate the gravitational force F. Then, since both Superman and Martian Manhunter contributed, we divide the force by two.

F = Gm1m2/r2 = (6.67 × 10^-11 m3/kg s2)(8.6)(5.972 × 10^24 kg)^2)/(2*10^12 m) = 1.0229017*10^28 N.

To find the strength of Martian Manhunter at less than half strength, we divide by two.

Shazam at full power = Martian Manhunter at less than half strength = 1.0229017*10^28 N/2 < 5.1145083*10^27 N.

Then we calculate the work done punching J’onn 10 meters away which is 5.1145083*10^28 J. This super strength is more than the gravitational force of the sun on Earth. This means Shazam is less strong than Martian Manhunter at half power but probably at least Planetary Level.

SUPER STRENGTH



Shazam generated 5.1145083*10^27 N of force at full power to punch Martian Manhunter at less than half strength 10 meters away making him bleed. Shazam had to generate a Solar System Level of Super Strength since he likely hit Martian Manhunter with a punch 144477.635593 times greater than the gravitational force of the sun on Earth.

Mass Of Sol = 5.972 × 10^24 kg.
Gravitational Force Of Sun On Earth = 3.54*10^22 N

KE = (1/2)(mv2) = (5.972 × 10^24 x 8.6)(16093.44)^2) = 1.3301972*10^34 J.
F = Gm1m2/r2 = (6.67 × 10^-11 m3/kg s2)(8.6)(5.972 × 10^24 kg)^2)/(2*10^12 m) = 1.0229017*10^28 N.
Shazam at full power = Martian Manhunter at less than half strength = 1.0229017*10^28 N/2 < 5.1145083*10^27 N.
Work done = 5.1145083*10^27 N * 10 m = 5.1145083*10^28 J.

Feat: Superman, ‘Justice League’ #25

IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

SUPERMAN (CLARK KENT)
PRIME EARTH

In ‘Justice League’ (2019) #25, titled “The Sixth Dimension! Conclusion,” Superman performs a super strength feat. In a battle against the World Forger, Superman sundips then breaches the Sixth Dimension and shatters the Forger’s Multiverse creation with a dimension-shattering punch.

How much super strength does it take for Superman to shatter the World Forger’s Multiverse creation with a dimension-shattering punch?

SUPERMAN SUNDIPPED TO TIME TRAVEL AS A WAVE FUNCTION 20 BILLION YEARS TO THE BIG BANG IN THE SIXTH DIMENSION TO DESTROY THE WORLD FORGER’S MULTIVERSE.

SUPERMAN HAD TO GENERATE AN INFINITE AMOUNT OF ENERGY FROM HIS DIMENSION-SHATTERING PUNCH, IN ORDER TO DESTROY THE 19.7265937 BILLION LIGHT YEARS MULTIVERSE CREATED BY THE WORLD FORGER.

Superman travels faster than light from his prison on Prime Earth to the Sixth Dimension. Superman travels so fast that he becomes a line where all timelines are present to him and he arrives at the time of a new Big Bang. Superman destroys the World Forger’s Sixth Dimension Multiverse creation with a dimension-shattering punch.

We will use string theory to calculate the energy necessary to travel to the Sixth Dimension according to the Many-Worlds Interpretation. Please Toggle the Toggle Arrow below to see the calculations.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

In order to calculate the energy necessary to travel to the Sixth Dimension, we must calculate the universal wavefunction interpretation of string theory. According to ‘Justice League’ (2019) #22, the multiverse created by Perpetua and her three beings is 20 billion years old. We can assume the World Forger in the Sixth Dimension created the Multiverse with a Big Bang 20 billions years old. In order to dimension travel to the Sixth Dimension, Superman had to travel faster than light 20 billion years old into the past of the DC Universe. For all intents and purposes, we can assume Superman travelled at the speed of light. The equation to calculate the wave function is below:

ψ(L,T) = exp(i ʃ0Tdτ ʃ0 Ldσ/lptp) ψ(0,0).

Integrating the double integral we obtain the integral of the inside function first:

ψ(L,T) = exp(i ʃ0Tdτ (σ/lptp)|0 1.8662410^26 = exp(i ʃ0Tdτ (1.8662410^26 m)/(1.616*10^-35 m * 5.39*10^-44 s).

Then we obtain the integral of the outside function.

ψ(L,T) = exp(i ʃ0 9.331210^15 (τ)(2.142582e+104 s^-1) = exp(9.331210^15 s)(2.142582e+104 s^-1) = ∞.

We get an infinite amount of energy.

SUPER-STRENGTH

Superman generated an infinite amount of energy in order to become a wave function at the Planck scale and time travel to the Sixth Dimension.

Superman had to generate a Boundless Level of Super Strength since he essentially hit the World Forger’s Multiverse with an infinite amount of energy from time travel to the Big Bang.

L = length of causal horizon = vt = (3*10^8 m/s)(9.3312*10^15 s) = 1.86624*10^26 m = 19.7265937*10^9 light years.

SUPERMAN, MEET H’EL!

Supergirl meets Clark at his apartment as Lois is visiting. When Lois departs, the two fly to Metropolis Centennial Park. Superman is surprised at Supergirl’s ability to speak English. She tells Superman she has made a friend who can help them restore Krypton. Immediately, H’el flies in. He introduces himself and tells Superman he was part of the space mission that would ultimately send Kal-El to Earth. However, he arrived 27 years after Kal-El.

Superman does not believe H’el and tries to convince Supergirl otherwise. At that moment, H’el teleports Superboy. Superman is shocked at H’el’s speed and at his violence. H’el tells Superman that he is going to kill Superboy, since being a clone he is considered an aberration whose species destroyed Krypton ages ago. A fight follows where H’el’s super powers outmatch Superman. Having defeated Superboy, H’el departs promising to restore Krypton with Kara’s help.

H’EL PLANS TO DESTROY THE SOLAR SYSTEM BY A REVERSE BIG BANG TO PREVENT KRYPTON’S DESTRUCTION

After an attack by H’el, a powerful Kryptonian, Superman visits Lex Luthor in a military prison designed to specifically hold him. General Garrison initially refuses to let Superman meet Lex Luthor, but Superman convinces him. Lex Luthor is held in a containment cube defended by antimatter cannons. H’el has taken control of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude and only the most intelligent mind on Earth can help him. Luthor has a scarred face which was caused by Superman. He reveals to Superman that he is aware of H’el and Superboy.

Superman asks if it is possible to go back in time in order to prevent the destruction of Krypton. Lex Luthor reveals Superman’s mind is second to his. He asks to speak with Superboy which results in an exchange about Superboy’s genetic structure. Luthor reveals it is possible by creating a reverse Big Bang that will destroy the solar system. Luthor tells Superman that the Man of Steel already guessed it, though he meant to ask whether it would have to kill H’el in order to prevent it. Superman and Superboy depart with the Man of Steel contacting the Justice League.

AS THE JUSTICE LEAGUE ATTACKS, WONDER WOMAN BESTS SUPERGIRL IN COMBAT

At the location of the Fortress of Solitude, H’el prepares his Star Chamber in order to time travel to the destruction of Krypton. Wonder Woman prepares to fight Supergirl. Though Wonder Woman admires Supergirl’s bravery, she has no sympathy for her misguided grief. In the mean time, Superman fights H’el. He scolds H’el for manipulating Supergirl’s grief to his nefarious ends. At that moment, H’el punches Superman into space.

Meanwhile, Wonder Woman has managed to tie Supergirl in her Lasso of Truth. She comments that though they are a close match in strength and speed, experience is the difference-maker. This is significant since in Post-Crisis continuity, Supergirl has been stated to be stronger than Superman. Though, however, Superman is ranked as stronger than Wonder Woman by Checkmate. Post-Flashpoint, Wonder Woman and Supergirl are matched physically.

Cyborg, Dr. Magnus and the Metal Men attack Grid near Happy Harbor. Grid retaliates with the Secret Society. After the death of Mercury, the battle is on between Cyborg and Grid.

The battle to decide who is the true cyborg!

DAMAGE SCALE



The fight starts out with Cyborg and Grid in a stalemate with their sonic cannons. After an explosion, Grid connects to Cyborg’s forehead and sends him into the digital dimension.

CYBORG ENERGY MANIPULATION – EXPLOSION ATTACKS: 6 DAMAGE PTS – 5 DAMAGE PTS = 1 DAMAGE PT.
GRID ENERGY MANIPULATION + REALITY WARPING – EXPLOSION ATTACKS = 6 DAMAGE PTS + 8 DAMAGE PTS – 5 DAMAGE PTS = 9 DAMAGE PTS.




On the following pages, Cyborg lands a reality-warping attack by destroying Grid’s digital body. Grid recovers and lands three reality-warping attacks by scratching and destroying Cyborg’s digital body..

CYBORG REALITY-WARPING – REGENERATION ATTACKS = 8 DAMAGE PTS – 3 DAMAGE PTS = 5 DAMAGE PTS.
GRID REALITY-WARPING ATTACKS x 3 = 24 DAMAGE PTS.




The battle kicks into high gear when Grid turns Cyborg into his human form with reality-warping attacks. Accepting his human form, Cyborg deals Grid with one final reality-warping attack, disconnecting Grid by leaving it in the dark. Then, Grid goes offline.

GRID REALITY-WARPING + INTERNAL BLEEDING ATTACKS = 8 DAMAGE PTS + 3 DAMAGE PTS = 11 DAMAGE PTS.
CYBORG REALITY-WARPING + BATTLE FIELD REMOVAL ATTACKS = 8 DAMAGE PTS + 6 DAMAGE PTS = 14 DAMAGE PTS.

ORIGIN STORY


200,000 years ago, an alien scientist named Bertron had the dream of creating the Ultimate on Krypton. Early Krypton was very harsh and hostile and the life-forms living there were the deadliest creatures in the universe. The child that would become Doomsday was created by a process of forced evolution. He was exposed to the harsh environment, killed, its remains collected then cloned then the process was repeated a thousand times. Eventually, the creature evolved the ability to come back from the attack that killed it. Doomsday proceeded to eradicate all the harsh life-forms on Krypton.

Per it’s genetic programming, it returned to Bertron’s lab and killed Bertron and all the scientists there. Then it boarded the cargo ship that supplied Bertron’s lab and went to other planets destroying lives.

Doomsday ended up on Calaton, a very scientifically advanced world. For three years it laid waste to the planet until it reached the capital. The scientists worked to devise a solution and finally, the members of the Royal family who had meta human abilities were merged into the being called the Radiant. For a week, he battled Doomsday until in an all-out energy attack he was able to kill the creature. Doomsday was bound but its body was not destroyed to prevent it from entering the afterlife and sent into space. It crash-landed on Earth, buried deep within its mantle.1

Calculations for Cyborg, ‘Cyborg’ #9

Energy of a lightning bolt (Max durability of Shazam) = 1000000000 J.
Ratio Energy of re-entry/Energy produced by New York = (1000000000 J-hr)(100)/(11000000000 J-hr) = 9%.
(1000000000 J)(1 Ton of TNT)/(4.2*10^9 J) = 0.238 Tons of TNT

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


This is the most significant DC crossover of the New 52. It re-introduced He-Man and The Masters Of The Universe to a new audience. It also helped fill in the story from the Masters Of The Universe and explained questions concerning some of its major characters and how they end up on Earth.

This product is well reviewed and has 60 ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.5 out of 5. There seems to be a great satisfaction with the product.

One customer review said: “One of the most burning questions I have with this series is why did ORKO betray the Masters? It is explained in this issue and reveals where He-Man’s mother the Queen is after Skeletor wiped their minds. So many answers in this collection that I thought was going to be a what if comic or alternate universe comic. I was wrong. This collection made me love the actual series just a little bit more!”

The reviews were overall very positive with only one negative review. Two problems cited by the negative review were the story-telling and art: “This story lacks depth, excitement and most importantly — passion. I think Keith Giffen and Dexter Soy were just collecting a paycheck and pushed this story out. Low energy ‘sketchy’ art and mediocre storytelling at best.”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Availability in multiple formats: Paperback, Kindle, Comixology.
  • Affordable price.
  • Kindle Discount.
  • 1-Click
  • Great Customer Review Ratings.

NEGATIVE:

  • Due to the large file size, there may be slow downloads.
  • The book is only available in English.
  • The New and Used Paperbacks with Free delivery are expensive.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:


We recommend this book as an earth-shattering re-introduction of Masters Of The Universe to the DC Universe.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
