IN SUPERHERO BATTLES
|WONDER WOMAN (DIANA PRINCE)|
In Superman: Doomed (2014) #1, Wonder Woman performs an energy projection feat. In Botswana, Wonder Woman rescues Steel from Doomsday. During the battle, Wonder Woman pierces Doomsday’s skin with her magical sword.
How much energy projection does it take for Wonder Woman to pierce Doomsday’s skin with her magical sword?
IN THE ISSUE, WONDER WOMAN PIERCED DOOMSDAY’S SKIN WITH HER MAGICAL SWORD. DOOMSDAY IS DURABLE ENOUGH TO WITHSTAND SUPERMAN’S HEAT VISION AS SCALE.
RELEVANTLY, A QUANTUM FEAT SINCE WONDER WOMAN’S MAGICAL SWORD CAN CLEAVE ELECTRONS OFF ATOMS. POSSIBLY, THE HEPHAESTUS SWORD CAUSES A THERMIONIC EMISSION BY HEATING DOOMSDAY’S HYPOTHETICAL TUNGSTEN SKIN TO HIGH TEMPERATURES.
IMPORTANTLY, WONDER WOMAN GENERATED 3.7295762*1014 WATTS OF POWER. SIMILARLY, THE EQUIVALENT OF THE ENERGY RECEIVED BY A CONTINENT. ENOUGH TO DESTROY A LARGE TOWN.

Wonder Woman pierced Doomsday’s skin with her magical sword. We will use Doomsday’s durability to estimate the energy projection of Wonder Woman’s sword.
In the issue, Superman arrives later and blasts Doomsday with heat vision.
In ‘Superman: Doomed’ (2014) #1, Superman blasts Doomsday with heat vision. DC Comics.
We will use this feat to calculate Doomsday’s durability.
In the issue, Doomsday survives Superman’s heat vision. In Superman Unchained, it is stated that Superman’s heat vision can reach 5000 degrees Celsius, the temperature of the surface of the sun. Let’s calculate the heat energy of Superman’s heat vision.
However, there are no metals on Earth that can withstand the temperature of the sun’s surface. The metal with the highest melting point is Tungsten with 3900 degrees Celsius. We will assume Superman heated Doomsday close to that temperature to defeat it. Tungsten has a specific heat capacity of 130 J/kg°C. Let’s show the results from the Omni-Calculator.
Hence, since Wonder Woman was able to pierce Doomsday’s skin she was able to generate at least 199345250 Joules of energy. Importantly, Wonder Woman’s magical sword was forged by the Olympian god Hephaestus. Incredibly, it is able to cleave electrons off an atom.
There is a phenomenon in science called thermionic emission. Really, whenever a tungsten filament is heated to a high temperature, it may emit electrons. Here, we hypothesize that Wonder Woman’s magical sword cleaves electrons by thermionic emission. According to a book, the work function for tungsten’s thermionic emission is 4.52 eV. And 1 electron Volt is 1.60218e-19 J.
Let’s calculate the number of electrons she was able to cleave. We assume 1 eV per electron.
Wonder Woman’s Energy Projection = (4.52 eV * 199345250 J * 6.022*10^23 electrons * 415000 g * 1 mole * 9.1093837 * 10^-28 g)/(1 eV * 55*10^-5 g * 1 mole * 1 electron) = 3.7295762e+14 J.
ENERGY PROJECTIONWonder Woman generated 3.7295762*1014 W of power in order to pierce Doomsday’s skin with her magical sword. And Doomsday can withstand Superman’s heat vision. In order to pierce Doomsday’s skin, Wonder Woman had to generate a Continent-Level of Energy Projection.
