FAN THEORY

SPOILERS AHEAD

Flash. Justice League (2017).

IN UNIVERSAL AND MULTIVERSAL ANOMALIES

AT THIS MOMENT, THERE ARE FEW DETAILS ABOUT ‘FLASH’

Despite recent news, there is no official synopsis on the ‘Flash’ movie. According to DC Movies Wiki, the movie is based on the Flashpoint storyline that gave birth to the New 52.

Namely, Barry Allen goes back in time in order to save his mother from death. However, his actions create a DC multiverse with an alternate catastrophic timeline.

THE ‘FLASH’ COSTUME IS INSPIRED FROM THE NEW 52

Perhaps, to confirm the new direction is the Las Vegas Licensing Expo 2022. At the Expo, Flash’s and Supergirl’s costumes from the movie were exposed.

According to Den of Geek, Flash’s costume design is inspired from the New 52. On the other hand, Supergirl‘s costume is uniquely inspired from Injustice.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


To begin, Superman/Batman, Vol. 2: Supergirl deals with Supergirl’s most popular origin story. In fact, the Hardcover was a sell-out at the time.

Importantly, as the Girl of Steel causes tensions within DC’s Trinity, a new threat rises. Dangerously, Darkseid has set his sights on Superman’s Kryptonian cousin. And Supergirl must choose between Earth and Apokolips.

The comic is good for your collection. You will definitely marvel at Michael Turner’s strong pencils, the characters’ erotic physiques and the color palette.

CUSTOMER REVIEW RATINGS

This product has 116 global ratings with a customer review rating of 4.7 out of 5.

The customer review said: “Michael Turner’s artwork is the epitome of what comic art should like. In the introduction, Jeph Loeb said that Turner drew the best looking females in all of comics. I’d happen to agree with him. Not only the women look good though. Turner’s Batman is one of the coolest looking versions of Batman ever. Even as much as I love Jim Lee’s art, Turner’s Batman put Lee’s to shame. Like Jim Lee, Turner’s super-detailed work caused him to become one of the hottest artists in comics. It’s really sad that Turner passed away a few years after this volume came out.”

There are seven negative reviews. One negative review pointed the poor plot: “This was a shame. I think supergirl is a cool character and can be done well, but this just makes clear that DC has no idea what to do with her. There is no characterization, no back up characters and the story can only loosely be called a “story.” The art is cool and it seems that is all this book has to offer. It’s a real disappointment, especially after Peter David’s run on the previous Supergirl (linda danvers) which was excellent. Stick with Many Happy Returns, possibly the best supergirl story ever (along with Crisis on Infinite Earths).”

Overall, this comic was good.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Paperback and Hardcover format available.
  • Popular Supergirl origin story.
  • DC’s Trinity.
  • Hardcover sell-out at the time.

NEGATIVE:

  • Hypersexualized females.
  • Poor plot.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:


I recommend this comic as the most popular Supergirl origin story in Post-Crisis continuity.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

IN DC DAY EXPLAINED

IN THE NEW 52, WONDER WOMAN AND SUPERGIRL ARE EVENLY MATCHED IN STRENGTH AND SPEED

In ‘Supergirl’ (2013) #17, Wonder Woman and Superman attack H’el’s Star Chamber at the location of the Fortress of Solitude. In reality, H’el intends to time travel to the past in order to prevent the destruction of Krypton, in effect, creating a Big Bang. During the battle, Wonder Woman fights Supergirl. Though Wonder Woman admires Supergirl’s bravery she has no sympathy for her misguided grief.

Though, it appears both fighters are evenly matched in strength and speed. As Wonder Woman manages to tie Supergirl in the Lasso Of Truth, she states the difference-maker is experience or perhaps, fighting-skill. In some ways, this is true. However, Supergirl has been stated to be stronger than Superman Post-Crisis. How does this work?

CHECK OUT THE STORY: WHY APOLLO IS “FASTER THAN A SPEEDING BULLET!”

POST-CRISIS, SUPERGIRL HAS BEEN STATED TO BE MORE POWERFUL THAN SUPERMAN

In ‘Superman/Batman: The Supergirl From Krypton’, Supergirl arrives on Earth in a pod. Her arrival immediately creates conflicts within the superhero community, notably with Batman and Wonder Woman. The Trinity is at odds with Kara: Superman trusts her and wants her to experience Earth culture, Batman sees her as a potential threat and Wonder Woman wants to train her in case of a war. Unfortunately, things go awry and Kara is captured from Themyscira and brought to Apokoolips by Darkseid.

The Trinity prepares a mission to rescue Kara from Apokolips. But it may already be too late for the Kryptonian teenager who was brainwashed by Darkseid and his minions. Superman is forced to fight Kara. During the battle, Superman notes that Kara may be stronger than him. This does not prevent him from winning the fight by using a lead-lined Kryptonite ring. There have been other instances where Supergirl has been stated to be more powerful than Superman.

During “Supergirl: Girl Power,” Lex Luthor used Black Kryptonite to split Supergirl into two: Good Supergirl and Evil Supergirl. During the storyline, Supergirl fights Superman again.

During the fight, she reiterates the statement that the superhero community thinks Supergirl is more powerful than Superman. But Superman counters that she should not believe everything she hears. However, it has been explained that the reason is because Supergirl does not know how to hold back.

POST-CRISIS, SUPERMAN AND WONDER WOMAN ARE EVENLY MATCHED

IN POST-CRISIS AND NEW 52, SUPERMAN AND WONDER WOMAN CAN DEFEAT SUPERGIRL

In the New 52, Superman is portrayed as stronger than Supergirl. During the “H’el On Earth” storyline, Superman takes on H’el in the Star Chamber for the second time. In their first encounter, H’el dominated Superman all across the board. In their second encounter, Superman no longer holds back. By delivering devastating punches, Superman gains the upper hand on H’el.

It appears that in the New 52, Superman is stronger than Wonder Woman and Supergirl. On the other hand, Wonder Woman manages to keep up with Superman due to her experience. At the same time, Wonder Woman managed to defeat Supergirl because of her experience and perhaps, because Supergirl in the New 52 does not hold back also. In any incarnation since Post-Crisis, Wonder Woman has the advantage.

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.

THE FIGHT

Superman watched Darkseid murder Supergirl with his Omega Effect at the Kent farm. Now, he is going to avenge Supergirl, in a battle that takes Darkseid to the edge of the Promethean Galaxy!

The battle to decide who is the true warrior!

-28 DAMAGE PTS.

Gravitational Pull Of Sun On Earth = 3.52*10^22 N.
Distance From Earth To Sun = 149.6*10^9 m.
Kinetic Energy Of Universe Expansion = (0.5 * 1.5×10^53 kg)(73300^2 m/s) = 4.0296675*10^62 J.

-(28 DAMAGE PTS * ((149.6*10^9 m * 3.52*10^22 N) + (4.0296675*10^62 J)) * 1 Ton of TNT)/(4.2*10^9 J) = -79.5944464*10^52 PTS * Ton of TNT.


Durability = We therefore can calculate that the total energy the sun has to burn is around 1.3 x 10^44 Joules. Dividing 3.8 x 10^26 Watts (the rate at which the sun is giving off energy) into this number gives an approximate value of 10 billion years for the sun’s lifetime.
