For absorbing the sun's rays, definitely Venus. When I want to lift, Olympus Mons is my place to go.


Wait, as in the whole thing? How is that like?


Not going to lie, it was rather tough at first!

It took most of my strength to try and lift the massive volcano. However, as I began to push, the mountain slowly started to rise above my head. I can feel the molten hot lava splash around my body as my arms barely pushed the mountain clear above my head. I then smiled as I then hovered up in the air, pressing the mountain a bit more. I even tried some compound lifts like squats and bench-presses for a full-body workout before I then placed the mountain back.

Oh, and if you hear any reports of lava spewing underneath the mountain, you guys know what really happened ;)


Have you been taking suggestions from some of my morphs Link ?

That is an incredibly impressive feat, you must have been delighted when you pulled it off. Not only the greatest lift in human history but being the first person to walk on another planet.


How did the gravity affect you with the lift, too, since it's less on Mars then it is on Earth. Does that mean stuff on Earth would be easier to lift considering the great feat?

You know, I didn't really notice the difference in gravity to be honest. But since I did lift the heaviest thing possible there with less gravity, then that means that lifting things on Earth should be pretty easy now. Which is awesome, but not really since that means there isn't anything on this planet that can challenge me. That's not good considering I really like to exercise and workout. Hmmm, maybe I should just start doing some isometrics from now on?

You'd think that superspeed would make me more punctual, huh?

Do you believe in the Death Penalty? Would you ever pass judgement on someone and kill them outright?

But he's right though, even I can't fully break the laws of physics. It took me about an hour there, then another hour finding the mountain and lifting it, and an hour back. Thankfully, all those times taking icy baths and exploring the ocean floor 'trained' me for holding my breath that long.


Based on this figure, I guess that you were travelling at about 1/3 of the speed of light tops, but probably a lot slower. This figure is based on the hypothesis that Earth and Mars were at the most distant points in their reciprocal orbits. In that case moving at lightspeed would take you about 22/23 minutes to get to Mars from Earth. Since this would hardly be the case I think that you were actually much slower.


Hmm, so maybe not 1/3 of the speed of light, 1/4th maybe or 1/8th?


I don't know, to be honest my guess was based on some simple math. I don0t know enough about astronomy to actually estimate your speed. Technicly to guess your speed, you should run multiple tests over a known distance very spaced between them. For example, the average Earth-Sun distance is about 8.32 light-minutes (which roughly equates to 144,000,000 Km), but this distance isn't fixed due to the eliptic orbit. So if you run Earth-Sun several times over a year it would be possible to make a more accurate guess.

Anyway, I made a little more math and I think I can approximate my estimation of your average speed to 13.5% of that of light (which is rough 1/7). Based on the fact that Earth is average 8.32 light minutes away from the Sun, while Mars is usually 12.7 light minutes away.

The fact that you didn't feel much of a difference, and that you were able to keep such a large volume together, makes me think. Perhaps (and I'm going on a pretty wild guess here) you have some level of gravity manipulation ability, linked to your super-strength. Eventually this might be linked to you ability to fly.

Hmmm, I don't think so to be honest. If my powers are based on being able to manipulate gravity, then that wouldn't explain all of my other powers and the fact that it is based on absorbing radiation. Though I do notice that I have this rather innate ability to adapt to my environment rather quickly. Remember that I said that it was hard at first, like I had to pour every single ounce of my strength just to lift it above my head.

That is a pretty good guess though, but since my powers are linked to my ability to absorb radiation, I don't think it's likely.

Though I value all forms of life. However, if the criminal is proven to be a continuous threat to the general population, then I think they should be stopped by all means. Especially if reform or rehabilitation is not working and the criminal shows signs of being willing and capable of committing their crimes again.

However, that is not for me to decide alone. That is up to the justice system to decide and I don't think it would be right if I act judge, jury and executioner. So for me, I'll just apprehend the criminals and thwart whatever plans they have, but I would not execute them on the spot.

On that note, I do believe that the U.S Prison System and certain laws need major restructuring.

bigbrian wrote: after you got your powers what the was the first superheroine thing you did?


To be honest, not much other than rescue a cat from a tree. I was still a little bit new and scared of my new powers at the time. When I went back to school after summer break, I did go patrolling and the first thing I did was stop a rape at a frat house. I talked more about it a few pages back, but needless to say, I was quite proud of how things turned out.

You'd think that superspeed would make me more punctual, huh?

Yeah, I've had some regrets with it in the beginning. The Starbucks Incident is probably one of my worst instances with my powers. But I think it was just the feeling of isolation and loneliness that made me wish that I didn't have these powers. Sometimes, I looked around in a classroom and I felt these stares at me, as if they could sense that something was very different, very foreign and alien. They looked at me at times like I was just unapproachable because I was just in a different league all together.

Eventually though, I was able to cope with it and I actually found a group of people that didn't give a damn how I look like, just as long as I was a decent person. And I've gotten used to having these powers so I don't have any regrets with it. Plus, I did find someone that didn't treat me like an approachable goddess, just a girl with superpowers. :blush:

I ask this honestly, if you were able to pit your strength against anything on Earth, no consequences of such a thing, what would it be? It can be anything.

Damn, good answer. My other question is if you were able to try and lift anything on Earth, without having to worry about consequences, what would it be? It can be as big and (seemingly) heavy as you like.

Hmmm, I think I would definitely try Everest. If I absorbed a lot of energy that day, I'll shoot for Australia. But I think I really need a bit of energy for that. However, if someone invents a large magnet on two ends so I can place magnetized weight plates, I'll definitely give that a shot.

That would still be about 90 MILLION miles per hour, more times faster than any spacecraft has ever reached! It must have been an incredible experience to travel that fast.

I am slightly surprised that you still need to breathe (and sleep and eat). How long do you think you would be able to go without for before you started to suffer?

It was as if everything around me slowed down, but I was able to see everything speed up to me. I don't know how to describe it, but it was pretty awesome!

Hmm, I dunno how long I think I would last. I think for sleep, I can maybe last about 2 weeks or so before I start going batshit crazy if I'm sleep deprived that long. I mainly eat for enjoyment or for appearance, but I don't think eating would be a necessity for me anymore. As for breathing, well since blood still pumps into me, I need oxygen for that right? I mean I can fill my lungs with oxygen but I can only hold out for a few hours at most. Otherwise, if I don't need to breath, would that make me undead? I wouldn't think so since I can still feel my heart beat (and I can see it for that matter if I look at myself with x-ray vision).

I think that these needs are more psychological needs, rather than a phisiological ones. It's just speculation, but a normal will start to show symptomes of sleep deprivation after about 120 hours (although this depends from many factors) and will be at risk of going crazy in about 10 days (current record for going without sleeping: 264 hours). I guess that your body won't need sleep to survive, but your brain still does. Regular sleep is required for the brain to be able to power down and reorganize informations.

Considering the level of control over your body, Camille, perhaps you can try to do as some animals and shut down different areas of the brain in turn and see what happens.

Or she could just dream at hyperspeed. I mean, since the normal human synaptic speed is 120 meters per second, and since hers operates at the speed of light, 300,000,000 meters per second—that means she could cram eight hours of REM sleep into a fraction of a second! She'd experience her dreams in "real time" since time to a dreamer is subjective anyway, but to an outside observer it would look as though she simply blinked her eyes!

That...actually...kinda makes sense. :blink:

Interesting tidbit about the sleep deprivation record. The human body only needs ~8 hours to fully recover all cognitive and motor skills not matter how long a human goes without sleep.

Camile, from a fellow European, is there any chance you can get back over to the states and help us beat the yanks at the ryder cup golf ? You could blow their balls offline with a puff of your superbreath, maybe even incinerate a few of tiger's mid-flight and guide our own into the holes. The last day's just started so hope you can be on your way soon. Godspeed! and much appreciated!

Hi Supian,

First off, I'm an American through and through. I'm not from Europe but if I play my cards right, I might be an ex-patriate given that my transfer goes okay.

Second, I don't condone cheating in a competitive environment or tournament. Hence why I don't participate in sports anymore, as a matter of fact I don't participate in competitive video game tournaments since my reaction timing is just too great. So I'm sorry but I won't help, especially against America.

You'd think that superspeed would make me more punctual, huh?

Hmm, I dunno how long I think I would last. I think for sleep, I can maybe last about 2 weeks or so before I start going batshit crazy if I'm sleep deprived that long. I mainly eat for enjoyment or for appearance, but I don't think eating would be a necessity for me anymore. As for breathing, well since blood still pumps into me, I need oxygen for that right? I mean I can fill my lungs with oxygen but I can only hold out for a few hours at most. Otherwise, if I don't need to breath, would that make me undead? I wouldn't think so since I can still feel my heart beat (and I can see it for that matter if I look at myself with x-ray vision).


I think that these needs are more psychological needs, rather than a phisiological ones. It's just speculation, but a normal will start to show symptomes of sleep deprivation after about 120 hours (although this depends from many factors) and will be at risk of going crazy in about 10 days (current record for going without sleeping: 264 hours). I guess that your body won't need sleep to survive, but your brain still does. Regular sleep is required for the brain to be able to power down and reorganize informations.

Considering the level of control over your body, Camille, perhaps you can try to do as some animals and shut down different areas of the brain in turn and see what happens.


Or she could just dream at hyperspeed. I mean, since the normal human synaptic speed is 120 meters per second, and since hers operates at the speed of light, 300,000,000 meters per second—that means she could cram eight hours of REM sleep into a fraction of a second! She'd experience her dreams in "real time" since time to a dreamer is subjective anyway, but to an outside observer it would look as though she simply blinked her eyes!


That...actually...kinda makes sense. :blink:

Interesting tidbit about the sleep deprivation record. The human body only needs ~8 hours to fully recover all cognitive and motor skills not matter how long a human goes without sleep.


(Author's Note: I think the forum ate my response to the whole sleep conversation)

Wow! 8 hours of deep REM sleep in just a blink of an eye?

Th-that's just crazy! But given that the data is correct, I may try to do this. But does that mean that those two or three hours of sleep I get is like someone going into a deep coma for a few months, maybe even years?

Anon, I don't think I am going to try to shut down parts of my brain. I don't feel comfortable with tampering or experimenting on one of my most important body parts.
