Hi there, first time posting here, nice to meet you guys.
I'm currently working on a comic book proposal, and I started thinking about the stats of my characters. One of my characters, the main one in fact, can temporarily increase his abilities at the cost of damage to his own body.
I was wondering about the exact effects of a single, powerful attack on a villain. So, the key stats we need to focus on is the attacker's flight speed, strength and how he augments the strike. With that in mind, these are the stats that we're working with.
- The attacker starts a charging attack from a mile away, flying at a speed of 5400 miles per hour, accelerating to that speed almost instantly. We can assume he has the durability to withstand the forces that are hitting his body as he flies at that speed.
- At this point, the attacker's strength while at a stand still would be capable of lifting 675 metric tons.
- The attacker has augmented his attack with energy that, upon impact, would supply the concussive force of three basic hand grenades.
The attack would be aimed at the target's jaw, and the target itself is able to survive the impact of the hit, receiving damages in the range of a severely broken jaw and being knocked out cold from the strike.
The target, despite his durability, weighs around 220 lbs.
The attack takes place in Chicago, the attacker begins his charge three quarters of a mile off shore in Lake Michigan, the target is standing a quarter of a mile in-land. East Jackson Drive, if we want to be specific.
There are no bystanders, the only thing in the streets other than the two combatants are parked cars and random debris from a previous fight.
What I want to know is how far does the defender fly upon impact, and if a building got in the way, how much would that do to stop him? Not looking for exact science, but through comic book science and general rationality (considering the situation at least) what do you think will happen upon the target being struck?
