    Makes me wonder, due to his insane speed.

    • So far as I can recall, the Flash does not have super-strength. He wears a special suit that protects his body from the effects of travelling at super-speed. As far as strength is concerned, his one great advantage is the fact that the faster an object is moving, the greater the force of impact when it makes a sudden stop. (Because there is more energy built up in the momentum of his movement, and that energy must be transferred when he comes to a stop). So, if the flash is punching you at super-speed, it has the effect of super-strength, because his arm has built up more momentum than, say, Batman's would, and therefore, has the effect of hitting a motionless object with more impact force.

      PHYSICS'd!

      All that said, if he was to make high-velocity impact with something of a greater mass than him, chances are, he would crumple like origami... so we have to suspend our disbelief a little, or assume that the special suit protects him.

    • If you mean the "my favourite wikis" links on your userpage, those are added automatically based on where you edit the most... so we might already be there.

      If you hover your mouse over the upper right corner of that box, there's an edit button you can use to remove wikis from your favourites, but not add them.

    • Oh, alright. Well, then, I'll just have to be more active on here. Btw, thanks for your insightful response, and it answered exactly what I'd been wanting to know! Btw, who removed my reply?

    • I did. Because you posted that question in three different places.

    • Flash has been seen (e.g. Flash vol 2 #101 May 1995) single-handedly reconstructing ruined buildings and moving heavy beams and girders into place. So, when he wants to, he CAN simulate super-strength effects by manipulating the inertia of objects that he's handling. For most practical purposes (villain-punching, infrastructure repair, etc), he honestly might as well have super-strength.

    • @Dave Thank you :D

    • I think its just moving fast enough and heals quick enough not to feel the force of the impact or the amount of weight.

      PS: Its just a theory.

    • No, The Flash is protected by the speed force from the damages that running at those speeds would cause, not only to himself, but also to the environment

    • I believe that the Flash (all Flashes) does have superhuman strength, but not at the kind of levels characters like Cyborg and Aquaman would be at. Now I'm gonna assume you're talking about Barry. Now, Allen I believe is probably physically stronger than Batman, so I think he is probably able to bench press between 1,500 lbs and 3,000 lbs.

    • no but the super-sonic punch is basically like super strength so yes-yes he does, he has super strength

    • He can also fly due to the speed he picks up by rotating his arms back and forth letting the air pick him off the ground
