View Full Version : I clocked Supermans flight speed

So Im working on that pain the butt achievement where you gotta fly 10k miles. Instead of rubber bands I use scotch tape and have superman flying at top speed circling Metropolis. Only problem is that my wireless controller shuts off after 15min. So out of curiousity I did the math on how far he traveled in those 15 mins.

15 MIN=200 Miles therefore Superman flies at 800Mph in the game.Just thought that was interesting.Seems though that in the game you actually break the sound barrier but I dont think 800 Mph is fast enough to do that.

The speed of sound isn't a constant number, but it waivers around 770mph. So 800mph would be enough.

I'm such a nerd. LOL

It really doesn't seem like he's going that fast in the game. I thought he could have gone faster.

Isn't Mach 1 around 800mph? So its safe to say in Superman Returns game his top speed is slower than an F15.

At sea level, speed of sound is 761.2 mph. Which is odd because in the game, top speed is shown as a little over 300mph. Which is even odder because he breaks the sound barrier twice. Oh well, the whole game was poorly done, so I suppose you can't expect much.

i remember this game was really played up in game informers before its release. guess you can never tell about a games true quality.
