NEW EARTH

In ‘Superman’ (2004) #207, titled “For Tomorrow, Part Four”, Superman performs a super speed feat. In the Middle East, investigating the Vanishing, Superman fights a mercenary called Equus. During the fight, Superman speedblitzes Equus.

How much super speed does it take for Superman to speedblitz Equus?

IN THE ISSUE, SUPERMAN SPEEDBLITZED EQUUS WITH FIVE PUNCHES DAMAGING HIS CYBERNETIC GOGGLES WITH STRESS OF 8,704,409 MEGAPASCALS.

IMPORTANTLY, SUPERMAN GENERATED THE EQUIVALENT OF 144,493,200,000 NEWTONS OF FORCE TO DAMAGE EQUUS’ CYBERNETIC GOGGLES. SIMILARLY, A SPEED BLITZ AT 56929.5087978 METERS PER SECOND, 56.929508797 PERCENT OF THE SPEED OF STARS.

SUPER SPEED FEAT:

STELLAR

Super Speed: Stellar 67%

NUMBER CRUNCHING

First, let’s find the acceleration using the Fourth Kinematics equation.

a = (v12 – v02) / (2 s).

We know F = ma, so a = F/m.

The equation to calculate the final velocity is:

a = (v12 – v02) / (2 s) = F/m.

v1 = (2Fs/m)^(1/2) = ((2*144493200000 N*1.2 m)/(107 kg))^(1/2) = 56929.5087978 m/s.

Calculations for Superman, ‘Superman’ Vol 2 #207

Mass Of The Moon = 7.34767309 × 10^22 kg.
Number Of Suns In Milky Way = 100*10^9 suns.
Gravitational Force Of Milky Way = (3.54*10^22 N)(100*10^9 suns) = 3.54*10^33 N.

a = (v12 – v02) / (2 s) = F/m. v1 = (2Fs/m)^(1/2) = ((2*144493200000 N*1.2 m)/(107 kg))^(1/2) = 56929.5087978 m/s. Comparison to Stellar Speed = (56929.5087978*100)/(100000) = 56.929508797.
