We are all familiar with the saying that Superman is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. I know that Superman’s abilities far exceed these standards, but allow me to put that in a literal sense. The average bullet travels at 1,700 miles per hour, which means Superman would have a minimum speed of 2,000 miles per hour. A locomotive can carry about 336,000 pounds, which means that Superman’s minimum strength level would be to lift between 350,000 to 400,000 pounds. When it comes to leaping tall buildings in a single bound, the tallest building in New York City is 1,776 feet tall, which means Superman would need to jump about 1,780 feet to go over it. What would you do if you could do all of that in real life?
