Not many people saw JUSTICE LEAGUE when it came out last year, so you may not know why this movie is perhaps the Scariest thing DC has ever made. I'm not kidding. Superman literally obliterates Earth at the end of the movie, and I can prove it!

[music]. ladies and gentlemen what you have. witnessed here today is a flash mob of . flashing flashes flashing truly the. comedic stylings of this show have hit a. new low. [music]. hello internet . welcome to film theory the smartest but . definitely not the fastest of shows on . youtube unless you measure speed by the . time it takes to make you cringe in . which case call me usain bolt hey you . remember last year when justice league . came out no no what well not all that . surprising since this thing earned less . than man of steel which means that most . you watching probably didn't go out see . it but don't worry you didn't miss all . that much here i'm gonna catch you up on . the best bits by the way spoiler alert . yeah basically the flash told a whole . movie aquaman wine wonder woman was the . victim of oddly sexist jokes and batman . just refused to act ever hear of . superman he died fighting next to me oh . yeah i guess cyborg was there too but. even in writing that recap i completely . forgot that he was even a part of the . team so you know nope the flash was the . only useful one my special skills . include viola a web design fluent in . sign language that only was he a well . realized character but he was also the . only character to demonstrate truly . useful powers in the movies big place. seeds the situation is so bad that . batman overwhelmed by dealing outclass . by the actual superheroes with actual. superpowers attempts to commit suicide. as a part of the final battle . i'm not even exaggerating when i say. that everyone else has to be like no . batman you are useful to this team you . you you're great you you add so much of. so much leadership to the team even . though your decision to revive superman . almost gets us all killed . oh yeah superman gets himself for a born . and record time it way through the movie . which is treated as this big reveal . supt you know you can't reveal stuff. that's already on the boxart . he even gets himself some really neat . cgi lips in the process and the zombie . soup's turns on the crew because you . know dc wanted another crack at the . whole superhero v superhero concept . because it went so well last time and . then he flies off to a cornfield assault . because the movie needed a reason to . ensure that the grossly overpowered . character didn't save the day until the. final battle best word of the ending . steppenwolf is seated batman chooses the . justice league hq there's a deathstroke. easter egg superman destroys all life on . the planet earth and end credits like i . said you didn't miss all that much oh . i'm sorry. were you wondering about that whole . superman destroying all life on the . planet earth bit yeah well you don't . actually see it happen on screen but it . is definitely an unintended consequence . of superman's actions throughout this . movie based on what we see during the . easter egg ending of justice league i . can prove for a scientific fact that . superman would decimate the earth that . he had sworn died and was reborn to . protect to understand how that works . though our story begins with the flash . so barry allen was a scientist who one . night gets struck by lightning next . thing you know he can move at incredible . speeds as you do that freak accident . gives barry the ability to tap into . what's known as the speed force an extra . dimensional source of energy that allows . him to not only move fast but . fundamentally alter the way physics . works around his body . in short the speed force allows barry to . move at light speed too ludacris feat . ludacris speeds pitch honestly is . probably a more accurate descriptor . without having to worry about all the . messy consequences that physics demands . would come with moving quickly and let . me assure you those consequences are . definitely messy you see when you swim. the water in front of you has to . out of your way and this is true for any . fluid that you're moving through water . certainly but it can also be things like . pudding. if you pull it lava juice and fill your . bathtub with random liquids for those. sweet sweet youtube kids views but more . than anything else the fluid we deal . with day to day is air when we normally . run through air we pass through the air . molecules pretty darn easily because . their velocity is so much higher than. our own the molecules just move out of . the way but when you start running at . ludicrous speeds the particles are. forced together they get trapped in . front of you becoming in essence a . molecular traffic jam because they can't . get out of the way of each other and as . you can imagine not only is weird stuff . happening in front of you but you're . also leaving a path of chaos in your . wake as well as the flash builds up . these molecules in front of him he's . creating a mini vacuum behind himself a . low density area left in his wake and as . a result air molecules rush in to fill . that space like the red sea post noah . what is this collection of air molecules . really that big of a deal well just how . much damage all this would cause would . depend on the flash's speed now in the . comics the flash has been shown to . travel any speed he needs to and he's. been able to reach those ludicrous . speeds i keep mentioning as just one . example in jla number 48 a series . covering the adventures of the justice . league a nuclear warhead is launched . towards north korea threatening to kill . over half a million people to save all . those lives the flash wally west at this . point rushes in and rescues each and . every one of those people . carrying them all 35 miles away but . here's the catch he rescues them after. of the bomb has already detonated so . he's rescuing . comic says is point zero zero zero zero . one microseconds that means he ran 35 . miles there and 35 miles back at least . 250,000 times as he could be carrying. two people at a time in point zero zero . z . zero zero zero zero zero zero zero one . seconds doing the math that translates . to him moving nine trillion times the . speed of light but since that's an . absurd number and since i'm specifically . interested in justice league let's just . stick to how the flash behaves in the dc . eu if i'm being thorough and i kind of . got to be for anything involving comics . neither as i get inundated with really . angry emails i should technically . mention that we've seen the flash move . faster than the speed of light back in . batman v superman flash appeared to . bruce wayne telling him to look into. lois well some people have written this . off as just a part of batman's nightmare . that would actually make no sense at . this point in the movie bruce has no . idea that superman is clark kent has . never seen the flash before and would . only have known lois lane as a reporter. so this is the flash reaching out to . bruce by running faster than time itself . but since that's just a theory i have . let's look for something a bit more . concrete luckily justice league gives me . exactly what i need while flash is . trying to outmaneuver a newly. resurrected superman a dramatic moment. reveals that superman is keeping his . gaze locked on the flash as he moves. this tells us one very important detail . that the flash is not moving faster than . the speed of light in this scene in fact . at this moment flash is moving slow . enough that superman from a few feet . away mind you can keep a visual lock on . him. you see sight works when the eye takes . in light that's been reflected off of . another object as a result what you're . seeing is always slightly behind what's . actually there as it takes time for the . light to travel between the object in . your eye and then for your brain to . process that image so if you were to . move faster than the speed of light well . weird things would happen because . relativity as we know it would start to. break down but one thing other people . certainly wouldn't be able to do is . accurately track your movements superman. may be super but even he can't speed up . the rate at which light is traveling and . also yeah he may be tracking flash using . some other method but it seems like it's. clearly meant to be that superman sees . the flash so even though it's very. possible that barry allen is able to . travel faster than the speed of light . it's very possible that superman is . tracking the flash's movements using . some other method for our purposes today . let's just assume that barry is . traveling slightly slower than the speed . of light allowing superman to see him in. the scene don't worry it doesn't change . the end results all that much the speed . of light is 671 million miles per hour . so let's put barry slightly below that . at 670 million miles per hour here's the . problem at speeds that high barry would . be walking around with a fusion bomb . going off on his chest no joke humans . right now have a hard time achieving. fusion because of a little wrinkle . called the coulomb barrier for fusion to . happen particles have to get really. really close together about 10 to the . negative 15th meters close in order for . the strong nuclear force that exists in . atoms to fuse the particles together. however there's a problem with that . just like magnets to protons that are . pushed together repel each other due to . their mutual positive charge this is the . coulomb barrier now the barrier can be . overcome by traveling really really . really fast speeds that under most . normal circumstances are nearly . impossible for humans to achieve i'm . talking 44 million seven hundred . thirty-eight thousand seven hundred . twenty-five miles per hour and levels of . fast but superheroes don't operate under . normal circumstances like i said barry. is traveling at 670 million miles per . hour on a conservative estimate . that's nearly 15 times faster than . what's needed to overcome coulomb's . barrier and so fusion reactions would be. happening over and over again in that . dense cloud of molecules that's building . up in front of him and each of those . reactions would correspond to a . temperature of around five billion . degrees and that's not all according to . work done at the university of. california san diego these sorts of . temperatures and energies would turn . little bits of air molecules into plasma . left alone those small particles of . plasma would explode to the size of . football fields in pointone milliseconds . so as he ran barry would be lighting off . thousands of high-energy fusion . reactions and giant plasma explosions. wherever he went close to light speed . which is why in justice league and the . comics it's so lucky that he . access to the speedforce which renders . all of this a moot point . remember the speedforce warps the . physics of the air around him so he . doesn't overheat and cause a plasma. streak and that would be the end except . for one man super man at the end of the . movie flash suits go in for a race . superman stop you're gonna kill us all . you see despite his ability to move . incredibly fast superman doesn't have . access to the speed force he's not what . the dc universe refers to as a speedster . superman travels fast because his . strength and his muscles not because he . has access to some extra dimensional . power sure in the movies and comics . superman has moved fast often multiple . times faster than speed alight but he . has never once in all the research that . i did tapped into that special force and . that becomes a serious problem because . superman is about to race barry allen . around the world and at least try to . keep up and thanks to this moment from . man of steel we know based on the fire. surrounding his body that superman. actively collides with the atmosphere. and burns on re-entry at really fast . speeds. unlike barry though there is no magical. field extending a millimeter away from a . skin that can magic away this problem . with no speed force to control the air . molecules around him all those awful . things i said about barry . absolutely applied to superman he's . gonna ignite the air wherever he goes . and in a race of this magnitude that . definitely means fusion level reactions . and plasma eruptions across the globe. happening in less than a blink of an eye . when superman reaches even half of light . speed he's already generating an . incredible 9. 8 times 10 to the ninth . power joules of energy that is roughly . 40 times more powerful than the . strongest hydrogen bomb ever detonated . that is going to devastate the planet . below him wherever he goes . it's completing the job that dodd and . steppenwolf couldn't do on their own. earth's greatest threat was its greatest . hero all along baby batman v superman . was right he has the power to wipe out . the entire human race and if we believe . there's even a 1% chance that he is our . enemy we have to take it as an absolute . certainty oh i just feel dirty even . saying that but hey that's just a theory . a film see . and before we end today's episode a . special announcement cirrus merch is on . sale now but supplies are super limited . so if you want to look cool and nerdy .
