CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


Critically, Static Shock #1 is the event that skyrocketed Static into superstardom in the DC Universe. Normally, a teenage genius, Virgil Hawkins becomes a black superhero. In the issue, Static has to face public distrust, protect his family and work undercover at S.T.A.R. Labs. Indeed, Static’s first issue starts with a bang! And let’s not forget the rise of the Slate Gang that has put the black superhero on notice.

The comic is excellent for your collection. You will definitely love the friendly art and the joyful expressions on the characters. This is the graphic novel to own in order to build your Comixology collection. Moreover, the issue is collected in Static Shock Vol. 1: Supercharged (The New 52).

This product has 13 global ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.7 out of 5.

One customer review said: “The main writer resigned after one issue- so I’m not sure what’s going on there- maybe some creative differences with others on the book team. The art is great; nice detail but a bit “cartoony” at times. I wonder if any comic artist alive can do a good job with African-american people- I haven’t seen any yet.

This one is worth jumping aboard with, althought the long-term direction is uncertain with the changing creative team. Static is a idea that merits a wider audience.”

There was one negative review. The negative review commented on the price: “I really didn’t want to pay this much finally found #1 #5 #7 #8 on midtown comic website for $2.39 I got 7 and 8 good quality and way cheaper.”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION

  • Kindle and Comixology formats available.

LEX LUTHOR WANTS TO JOIN THE JUSTICE LEAGUE

Previously, Jessica Cruz was chosen by the Ring of Volthoom. After the demise of the Criime Syndicate, the Ring wanted her as the new Power Ring. Elsewhere, at Wayne Manor, Lex Luthor confronts Bruce Wayne. Finally, he has deduced that Bruce Wayne is Batman. Before Lex can continue his accusations, Alfred mounts his gun at the criminal’s temple. Quickly, Bruce knocks Lex down. When Lex notices a clock on the wall, he blows it.

Then, the passage to the Batcave appears behind the rubble. In reality, the billionnaire has come to join forces with the Batman. In fact, he believes a threat is coming to Earth. After Batman tells him a modified tale of the scorpion and the frog, Lex departs. Suddenly, Superman and Wonder Woman alert Bruce. In Oregon, a green energy detonation has been detected. Fortunately, the Doom Patrol arrive to help.

THE JUSTICE LEAGUE AND THE DOOM PATROL FIGHT OVER JESSICA’S LOBOTOMY

In Justice League (2014) #33, the Doom Patrol and the Justice League fight. Previously, the Doom Patrol had come to recruit Jessica Cruz. When her powers are out of control, they elect drastic measures. Heroically, Luthor arrives to save the day. In fact, he threatens to blow Chief’s spine out. Meanwhile, the Ring reveals why he chose Jessica. As matter of fact, she is the lone survivor from a murder attempt by two gunmen in the woods. When Jessica realizes it, a big explosion follows.

Strangely, the detonation reaches to Anti-Monitor. Sinisterly, she tells him of Prime Earth. Dangerously, the cosmic being promises to “consume it.”1 As the fight rages, Lex tells Batman his plan. As matter of fact, the Ring of Volthoom works like a power ring: indeed, it works on emotion. If Luthor can use shock therapy on Jessica’s synapses, he can severe her emotional connection. Drastically, Chief favors psycho-surgery, an euphemism for lobotomy.

BATMAN SAVES THE DAY

But Batman saves the day. Courageously, he reaches out to within Jessica’s energy field. Honestly, he tells her he too is a victim. In addition, she should face her fear. Instead of fearing the darkness, she should embrace it. Reassuringly, Jessica takes Batman’s hand. Together, they summon their wills and Jessica manages to extinguish the Ring of Volthoom’s blast. Finally, Batman tells Lex they never needed him to save the day.

In fact, the Justice League held the Doom Patrol back for Batman, not Luthor. Sternly, Lex replies: “But you will.”1 Later, Batman advises Superman and Wonder Woman to recruit Lex Luthor. For two reasons: In order to keep him in check and investigate Lexcorp. Though Superman opposes revealing their secret identities. Eventually, Superman formally welcomes Lex Luthor into the Justice League. To end, he lays down some ground rules.

SUPERMAN EXCEEDS A STELLAR LEVEL OF SUPER-STRENGTH

In 'Justice League' (2012) #6, Superman bullrushes Darkseid into a Boom Tube.

Since “Superman Reborn,” the New 52 Superman and the Rebirth Superman have been merged into one. In effect, it is the same Post-Crisis Superman. Moreover, the Rebirth and New 52 universes merged into a single DC Universe. Nevertheless, Superman’s Post-Crisis history has been preserved. In addition, the 10 years stolen by Doctor Manhattan have been restored.

Over the past decades, Superman’s strength level has fluctuated. Noticeably, John Byrne’s Superman decreased Superman’s strength level considerably. Since the “Death of Superman,” the Man of Steel has steadily increased in super strength. Normally, Superman can move or shatter planets. Also, he is strong enough to hold a miniature black hole in his hand. Therefore, the Man of Steel can exceed a Stellar Level of super strength.

However, since Post-Crisis, Big Blue has performed feats that displayed a potential for infinite strength. Let’s list five feats that show Superman’s infinite strength.

‘FINAL CRISIS: SUPERMAN BEYOND’ (2008) #1

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/Shazam lift the Book of Limbo. Really, it is a book with an infinite number of pages. In “Superman, The Greatest Story,” I argue that it is feats that define Superman’s story. In ‘Final Crisis,’ Superman is not only the strongest story, he is also the strongest hero. Definitely, this feat takes the top spot on this list.

‘JUSTICE LEAGUE’ (2019) #25

In the conclusion of the “Sixth Dimension” storyline, Superman battles against the World Forger. Freed from his prison on Prime Earth, Superman sundips multiple times in yellow suns. Then, flying at high speeds through the cosmos, Superman reaches the speed of light. In an instant, he becomes a line and all time and space is perceptible to him. With a devastating punch, Superman shatters the World Forger’s 20 billion years old multiverse.

Superman and Wonder Woman are two of the strongest warriors in the DC Universe. In ‘JLA/Spectre: Soul War’ (2003) #1, the Spectre comes to ask the JLA for help to stop the Trans’ invasion. During the invasion, Spectre merges with the JLA. As the Spectre and JLA investigate, Spectre is knocked unconscious. In free fall, Superman and Wonder Woman lift Spectre.

Indeed, considering the free fall and that Spectre’s weight is eternity. Definitely, this feat requires infinite strength.

‘ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN’ (2006) #649

In 'Adventures of Superman' (2006) #649, Earth-One and Earth-Two Supermen clash over the death of Earth-Two Lois Lane.

To sum, “Infinite Crisis” is largely a question about who is the true Superman. Indeed, Earth-One Superman, Earth-Two Superman, Superboy and Superboy-Prime all contended for the title.

During the crisis, Earth-Two Superman successfully brought back Earth-Two with Alexander Luthor Jr’s help. And, when Earth-Two Lois Lane died, Earth-One Superman journeyed to Earth-Two to help. However, Earth-Two Superman blamed Kal-El for her death.

Dangerously, a clash followed between the two Supermen that threatened time and space. The Men of Steel’s punches threatened reality and opened a rift of chronal energy. Then, each Superman was transported to the other one’s Earth, reliving its history.

Eventually, Wonder Woman had to come to Earth-Two to restrain Earth-Two Superman. To consider, opening a chronal rift requires time travel. Definitely, this feat requires infinite strength.

Well put, Superman asks Brainiac-13 “What’s infinity times infinity?” In ‘Action Comics’ (2001) #782, a cosmic Superman transports B-13’s Warworld an instant after the Big Bang.

During “Our Worlds At War,” Imperiex sought to hollow the universe. When Imperiex’s armor was cracked, Brainiac-13 absorbed its energies into Warworld. To that end, Brainiac sought to rule the universe.

Via a temporal Boom Tube, the sundipped Superman transported Warworld to the beginning of time. Though, the temporal Boom Tube was created by Steel’s Entropy Aegis. Nonetheless, Superman’s feat still involved time travel.

Indeed, it is debatable whether the feat required an infinite amount of super strength. At the same time, pushing Warworld through a temporal Boom Tube definitely required an incalculable amount of super-strength.

THE JUSTICE LEAGUE LOST THE BATTLE AGAINST PERPETUA

In ‘Dark Nights: Death Metal’ (2020) #1, Wally West in Hellscape on Earth 0 recapitulates the Justice League’s battle against Perpetua to Wonder Woman. In the beginning, Perpetua’s origin story is told: She is a being of the Void tasked with creating multiverses. Wally explains that there are two poles of energy: positive or connective energy also called anti-crisis energy and crisis energy.

To sum, connective energy connects all histories in the DC Universe making the past, the present and the future matter; crisis energy focuses on the present and the self with people not remembering the past. They are both parts of the seven forces of the universe. When Perpetua created the Prime multiverse she used anti-crisis energy in order to restart it infinitely. Destructively, she wanted a multiverse that would be vampiric and prey on others.

When Perpetua’s brothers found out, they trapped her in the Source Wall so she would learn from the growing multiverse. However, Perpetua continued to create crisis after crisis. During Barbatos’ invasion, the Source Wall was shatttered and Perpetua was freed. Not long ago, Doctor Manhattan who is a being of connective energy attempted to heal the fractures in the DC multiverse but with no success.

So the Quintessence gathered Doctor Manhattan’s connective energy and gave it to the Justice League. Finally, they fought Perpetua in a terrible battle that left both forces exhausted and created a blast so powerful it burned out the sun. Using the Batman Who Laughs, Perpetua has a conduit to the dark multiverse where crises are happening forever.

WONDER WOMAN PLANS TO CREATE THE FIRST ANTI-CRISIS

In ‘Dark Knights: Death Metal Trinity Crisis’ (2020) #1, Wonder Woman sets her plan into motion in order to create the first anti-crisis. Meeting the Justice League, she informs them that Perpetua is using the crisis energy from three worlds created in the Dark multiverse by the Batman Who Laughs. In those worlds, the three major crises (“Crisis On Infinite Earths”, “Infinite Crisis” and “Final Crisis”) are occurring forever supplying Perpetua with Crisis Energy. Hence, the plan is for Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Jonah Hex and Harley Quinn to infiltrate Castle Bat to stop it.

At the same time, Superman orders Martian Manhunter and Hawkgirl to destroy Perpetua’s throne while the Lanterns destroy the antennae to free people. The ultimate goal is to re-direct the energies stored in three Alfred Boxes to Wally West in order to restart the Prime multiverse. Despite traps and surprises along the way, the DC Trinity makes it to Castle Bat. There, they travel to three worlds: Batman travels to Crisis On Infinitie Earths, Superman to Final Crisis and Wonder Woman to Infinite Crisis. However, their plans are foiled by the Batman Who Laughs though Wonder Woman succeeds in recruiting Superboy-Prime.

In 'Dark Knights: Death Metal Trinity Crisis' (2020) #1, Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman travel to the three major DC crises to collect their Crisis energies.

WONDER WOMAN SEES ALL DC HISTORY MATTERS WITH THE ANTI-CRISIS ENERGY, FORCING THE HANDS TO RESTORE THE DC MULTIVERSE

In ‘Dark Nights: Death Metal’ (2021) #7, Wonder Woman engages in an epic battle across time and space against the Batman Who Laughs. The Darkest Knight informs Wonder Woman of three things: he is stronger than she is, he can recreate the DC multiverse and kill the Hands, and the Hands are going to erase the Prime multiverse if he doesn’t take her offer. Using the Connective energy, Diana sees the importance of DC history and of how every life is connected.

As the two fighters bolt into the Death Sun that is the end of the DC multiverse, Wonder Woman understands she must allow all of it to end. As she strikes the Batman Who Laughs one final time, there is an explosion at the center of the Death Sun. Then, there is nothing. Finally, there is Light.

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.

Calculations for Shazam, Justice League of America’ #8

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.
Comparison = (5.1145083*10^27 N)/(3.54*10^22 N) = 144477.635593.

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 Multiversal 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.
