Reply Subj: "Faster than Clark? Fast as me?" A little logic here. . . .

> We cannot accept the conclusion that WW is faster than Superman because she said he was "faster than Clark," and "fast as me." Here's why:
> Amazo had all of the League's powers, including the strength of WW and Superman, which is why he was stronger than both of them put together, i.e., WW + Superman + rest of League > WW or Superman. Given this truth, logic requires that we impute the same conclusion concerning Amazo's strength to his speed. And, once we've done that, we are forced to admit that Amazo is faster than both Superman AND WW. If that's true, and we know it is because (i) Amazo has the combined powers of all the league and (ii) WW would otherwise have been able to tag him, then WW's statement that Amazo is "fast as me" is false insofar as it suggests that she's as fast as Amazo. And if she's not as fast as Amazo, which we have established as true because she's not as strong as Amazo, then the statement that Amazo is faster than Superman also applies to her. Thus, there's no way to determine whether she is, in fact, faster than Superman based on her statement.

Well we know full well she isn't as fast as superman anyway so the only way to read her comment is purely by her noting that since Amazo has replicated all their powers she is in fact fighting herself here - hence her saying he's as fast as she is.
It's one thing to say Amazo is stronger than her and superman combined but we know from how DC speed physics work that Amazo can't possibly be faster than her and Superman too as Speed is still limited to lightspeed in the DCU. Superman can't go faster than light, Flash has the Speedforce that bypasses physics but Amazo demonstrated speed no greater than Supermans. He has a clear limit in that regard and it was proved in the previous issue as we saw he was definitly not faster than The Flash anyway! \:\)
