    Age of Apocalypse #14 came out today and Northstar has some good scenes, mostly lifting really heavy things and throwing them really fast and hard into other things. Kind of fun if you think about it and nicely done. Would read again.

    Wow they are giving Northstar huge props in this series, making him a huge heavy hitter.

    What kind of props? A cane and top-hat? Some really long skis? A lemon pie? Trombone? I was imagining him carrying an inboard-outboard motor, but maybe just a really big and heavy baseball bat would make more sense?

    Yeah, it seems like he's still got his Children Of The Vault enhancements, which is odd...

    Yeah as they officially lost it, but guess their giving the twins a speed push like they did for Quicksilver to compete against Flash.

    Hasn't Northstar's running speed always been kind of ambiguous? He ran really fast in the Marvel Fanfare he was in.

    Not, y'know, lightspeed fast... but fast.

    It was fast, but no where close to light speed

    Calculation:
    speed=distance/time
    speed=4500km/30min
    speed=150
    km/min
    speed=2.5 km/sec

    He was certainly in a hurry at the time - but the mist that stopped him flying may have slowed him down a bit.
