FLASH (WALLY WEST)
NEW EARTH

In The Flash: Rebirth (2010) #5, titled “Mother, May I”, Flash performs a durability feat. In Central City, Professor Zoom has returned from the past to kill the Flash family. During the battle, Wally survives being hit into a bus by Professor Zoom.

How much durability does it take for Flash to survive being hit into a bus?

IN THE ISSUE, FLASH SURVIVED A 10-METER CRASH THROUGH A BUS AFTER PROFESSOR ZOOM HIT HIM WITH A BAT AT MACH TWO.

RELEVANTLY, THE SHEAR STRESS EQUALED THE PRESSURE INSIDE A BUS TIRE.

IMPORTANTLY, FLASH WITHSTOOD 525948 PASCALS OF STRESS. ENOUGH TO DESTROY A BUS TIRE.

DURABILITY FEAT:

METAHUMAN

Durability: Metahuman 17%

Zoom hit Wally into a bus with a baseball bat. We will calculate the strain on the bus in order to estimate Wally’s durability.

NUMBER CRUNCHING


In the issue, Professor Zoom hits Wally West with a baseball bat 10 meters into a bus. Let’s differentiate the acceleration of Zoom’s hit.

a = d/dt(10/dt) = -10/dt2 . dt2 = -10/a.

If we assume that Wally and Zoom were fighting at sonic speed, then his velocity was 343 meters per second. Then, we can calculate the time it takes to accelerate Flash to Mach 2 with the bat. And we square it.

dt2 = (ds/dv)2 = -10/a = -10dt/dv. dt = | -10/dv | = (10 m)/(686 m/s) = 0.01457725947 s.

a = |-10 m/(0.01457725947 s*0.01457725947 s)| = 47059.6000337 m/s2.

F = ma = (47059.6000337 m/s2*79 kg) = 3717708.40266 N.

Finally, we can calculate the shear stress with the Omni-Calculator.

ENERGY PROJECTION


Professor Zoom hit Flash with a baseball bat 10 meters away into a bus. In order to survive the collision, Flash had to generate a Metahuman-Level of Super Strength.
