As for this scan, it's from JSA (1999) #77 written by Geoff Johns. Coming from the guy writing Green Lantern and who doesn't even know how to spell Eiling's name... I'm not really surprised by the outcome.
Do you have the scans of Superman racing with flash around the world at 2,000 miles a second? In the race, flash comments he could reduce superman's kinetic energy to zero, but it would send supes flying "from here to moscow."
