Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

We have decided to move to an every other week schedule from now until the end of the year. We’ve been struggling to get back to once a week on time comics with everything that’s been going on, between one or both of us on overtime, the season for our nonprofit ramping up, and general brain fatigue.  Because, you know, 2020.

There will be a comic this coming Wednesday (9/30) and then every other week after that, with filler during November as per usual.

Hazel Smash!

Stay tuned next week for an explanation of the physics!

Clue: She is not a superstrength, nor does she have any sort of invulnerability.

    If she has super speed, she in fact HAS invulnerability of some kind – to her own power effects at the very least.
    Otherwise sonic booms, atmospheric friction and heating, joint or optic damage, metabolic collapse and the abrasive effects of super speed on her feet and costume boots would have been lethal and completely crippling long ago. She isn’t bursting into flames or walking with a cane from arthritis, so I’m guessing there’s a defense in there somewhere.

    I suppose a lot of her ability could be explained by using time control as her real power instead of actual super speed, but the dangers and issues there are really so much worse than bursting into flame, like breaking reality….

    How about if she bends reality, with it actually breaking it?

    Sonic BOOOOMMM!

    She looks to weigh maybe 120 soaking wet, so the obvious explanation to powerful attacks is more speed. If a twister can punch a piece of straw though a tree and a bullet no wider than a nickel can create a temporary cavity the size of a beach ball…. well, same physics apply here.

    Vibration trick. It’s always a vibration trick.

    Vortex created by a high speed circular motion.

    Speed is strength, or rather, acceleration (and deceleration) is strength.
