Thing, ‘Fantastic Four’ Vol 1 235

 

IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

THING (BENJAMIN GRIMM)
EARTH-616

In Fantastic Four (1981) #235, titled “Four Against Ego!”, Thing performs a super-strength feat. And in order to avenge his defeat, Ego The Living Planet is headed for Earth. In space, the Fantastic Four intercept him, but Ego attacks them and they land on the planet’s surface. During the battle, Thing transports a bomb which Mister Fantastic fashioned out of one of Ego’s propulsion device’s jet packs.

How much energy projection does it take for Thing to transport the propulsion jet 200 miles below the surface to Ego’s brain?

THING TRANSPORTED THE BOMB 200 MILES BELOW EGO’S SURFACE TO 6701480 METERS TO ITS BRAIN.

RELEVANTLY, EGO THE LIVING PLANET HAS HALF THE EARTH’S SIZE WITH SIMILAR GRAVITY AND ATMOSPHERE. IN ADDITION, WE ASSUMED THE PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE BELOW THE SURFACE ARE SIMILAR TO EARTH’S.

THING GENERATED 6.9490995*1015 NEWTONS OF NET GRAVITATIONAL FORCE. SIMILARLY, THE EQUIVALENT OF 2.3284626*1022 JOULES OF WORK. ENOUGH TO SHATTER A COUNTRY.

Thing transported Ego’s propulsion jet 200 miles below the surface to Ego’s brain. We will calculate the total work done in order to estimate Thing’s super-strength.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

From Marvel Universe: The Appendix! and Marvel Database, we learn Ego has gravity similar to Earth with a diameter of 6701480 meters. Also, we will assume Ego has the same mass as the Earth of 5.972*1024 kg and that the conditions below the planet’s surface are similar to Earth’s.

According to geologists, three miles below Earth’s surface, the temperature is 75 ºF. However, for every mile below, the temperature increased by 15 ºF and the pressure increases at 7300 pounds per square inch.

Let’s calculate the mass of the propulsion jet. From Silver Surfer, ‘Silver Surfer’ Vol 3 22, we calculated their thrust to be 5.858532e+25 N. Since there are two jets, we divide by two. Also, Ego reaches hyper velocities in space which are around 1000,000 m/s.

First, let’s calculate the mass of one jet.

Gravitational binding energy = U = (3/5)(GM/R2) = (3/5)(5.972*1024 kg * 6.674×10−11 m3⋅kg−1⋅s−2 )/(33507402 m) = 4.2622245e+32 J.

KE = U = (1/2)(Mv2) = (2KE/M)^(1/2) = ((2 * 4.2622245e+32 J)/(5.972*1024 kg ))^(1/2) = 11947.3960036 m/s.

KE = (1/2)(Mv2) = Fd = mad.
mjet = KE/ad = (4.2622245e+32 J)/(9.81 m/s2 * 9.461e+15 m) = 4.5923002e+15 kg.

Then, we calculate the work done by Thing. To note, Thing had to withstand the planet’s interior pressure and thermal stress.

Temperature at 200 miles = 75 ºF + (15 ºF * 193 miles) = 2970 ºF = 1632.222 ºC.
Pressure at 200 miles = (7300 psi/1 mile) * 200 miles = 1460000 psi = 10066345648 N/m2.

Omni-Calculator.

Force = (10066345648 N/m2)(9.15 m2) = 92107062679.2 N.

Then we calculate the net work done.
Wnet = Fd – (Thermal stress + Weight) = ((2.929266e+19 kg)(6701480 m * 9.81 m/s2 cos 30)) – ((14561250223.1 N)(6701480 m cos 30) + (92107062679.2 N)(6701480 m cos 30)) = 2.970488e+26 J = 6.9490995e+15 N.

SUPER-STRENGTH


Thing generated 6.9490995e+15 N of net force to transport the propulsion bomb to Ego the Living Planet’s brain. Thing had to generate a Multi-Planetary-Level of Super-Strength.
