What about science behind becoming Super Saiyan? There's this really nifty feature they have in which they get a lot stronger and tougher if they are severely injured but don't die from it.

I'd rather have teleportation.......

maybe throw in a little rapid healing and say the ability to call a astral weapon into existence with just my mind and you'd have a great combination......

About Batman. Wouldn't an exoskeleton be helpful here? I always thought that Batman's suit (Bat suit) was sort of an exoskeleton itself, where it enhanced his powers and absorbs ALOT of force. Wouldn't this keep him alive when landing at 50 km/h or faster?

@klaats: well the fundamental action/reaction is the same. He would still die. If you are on a plane and the plane crashes do you survive? NO. The only way is if the suit had some kind of dampners (highly unlikely in that small space) or the suit absorbs all the forces you act on it and doesnt react with the same force on you (again, highly unlikely),

@exxces_4@klaats: Just was thinking about the jet pilot suits, which have some absorbers (silicone pads or something, do not remember the specifics, sorry) just to absorb the ridiculous amounts of gforce. That concept came from flying bugs (dragonflies), who could manoeuvre instantly when flying and they have a lot of water in their bodies to absorb all their gforce.
Now obviously, if you apply this to Batman's suit, it will not absorb all, but it could absorb enough to survive the 50 km/h drop.

@exxces_4@klaats: yes this ^^

also, to consider, is all the organs in the body would be traveling at the same speeds. so when you stop your brain, heart and other organs would still have to deal with the same inertia that the exterior body would feel. so the force on the outside of the body may get dissipated, but without some way of securing and dissipating the inertia on the inside, its still rather moot.

pilots who fly super sonic plans have special suit to keep their blood flowing properly or they black or red out even those suits have a limit as to what they can do

These Reality Checks have a way of taking subjects I thought I had no interest in and making me absolutely fascinated. Well done!

@iandizion713: "Superpower: Power greaterinscopeormagnitudethanthatwhichisconsidered naturalorhaspreviouslyexisted."

The ability to take down a tiny fraction of the villains Batman has would likely be considered a superpower by many.

@iandizion713: Isn't there a comic with some sort of virus... Spoiler... Batman gets infected, and loses his sight. He gets a super sonic blast however and super hearing. This super sonic blast can blast superman, wonder woman, and lex luthor in his mech suit throgh a solid wall.

@iandizion713: Well, I mean, he did wield a lantern ring at one point. But I guess even then it still only counts as glorified accessorizing.
