No speed steal, best feat includes toying with SuperGirl, who was not holding back, not convinced for Flash right now. What can cannonball do?

Cannonball possesses the ability to bodily generate thermo-chemical energy and release it through his skin. Accompanied by smoke, flame, and condensation, the equal and opposite reaction to this energy release propels his body through the air like a human rocket. Originally, Cannonball was unable to stop the propulsion until his immediate store of energy was depleted or until he hit an object of sufficient mass to stop him. With practice, however, Cannonball can now cut off his propulsive power at will. As a side effect of forming the thermo-chemical energies over the surface of his body, Cannonball is rendered virtually invulnerable while in flight. Accompanying the release of energy is a half-inch thick energy field that channels the explosion and protects his skin from the direct effects of the blast. It also negates momentum and related effects, thereby cushioning his body from any impact up to a half-minute from the depletion of his energy. Cannonball's "blast field" extends to any person or object with which he is in physical contact, and he can extend it further by concentrating to form a protective shield, even while standing still. Cannonball is also able to absorb kinetic energy through the field he generates and use it to either strengthen his field or redirect it as concussive force. Cannonball once recovered from mortal injuries that left him seemingly dead. It has been theorized that Cannonball's recovery was an indication that he was an External, one of a group of immortal mutants. However, since it has subsequently been demonstrated that even Externals can be permanently killed, doubt has been cast on his alleged immortality.

Okay Thanks, I can see Flash being tagged, Hyperion seems to have decent speed, If cannonball can steal momentum, it decrease Flashes chances...

Cannonball can absorb Flash's kinetic energy on impact and amp himself like he did to Gladiator. Technically, Flash will beat himself. However CB has only EVER done this ONCE in his entire career so take it for what you will.

He doesn't have to. Flash just has to hit CB and then CB inherits all of the energy Flash hit him with. CB will therefore = Flash until he releases the energy. Then he can hit him.

You can bet people are going to argue that Cannonball can't do that because Flash will hit him before he thinks, but I'd disagree. Seemed like an automatic power from what I recall. Just saying it now before the swarm of Flash fanatics roll in. =)

But remember folks, Cannonball has only ever used this power once and therefore could be considered as PIS.

Yea. People like to use the CB/Gladiator incident as a low showing for Gladiator, but what really happened was Gladiator punched CB, CB absorbed the kinetic energy and then used it against Gladiator. Gladiator technically punched himself. Not to mention Kallark was back on his feet on the next page, with the x-men shitting their pants.

Cannonball wasn't even really sure what happened himself until Gambit explained it to him. It's a pretty intense defense mechanism if you ask me.

Food for thought!
