> It was shown in the previous issue that, even after getting the crap beat out of him, Flash was able to steal Amazo's superspeed (I'm presuming by that Wally means the Flash specific powerset). Therefore Amazo would just have had Kal's and Diana's speed in operation.
Lord Majestros:
I read that as Flash taking Amazo's superspeed period, not just Flash's since the whole point was to prevent the rest of the team from having to face an Amazo capable of using his powers against them at superseed. Flash just taking his own speed away would still leave Amazo with Supes and Diana's speed which means the team would still have the same problem. BUT, I think you're right that Flash is supposed to have just taken his own speed even though he COULD have taken all Amazo's speed.
> To be honest, I've yet to see any proof that Amazo stacks physical attributes like strength and speed one on top of the other. Because if so, an Amazo with Diana's and Kal's strength combined wouldn't even have felt WW's strongest blows.
Lord Majestros:
He's definitely supposed to and there are examples where he had to be stacking power like when he fought a few dozen JLA members in the "JLA" series at once and it included people like Supes, J'onn, Wonder Woman, and Orion. Even in the most recent fight, Diana even said that he was stronger than her and Supes put together. Realistically, the JLA should never be able to beat Amazo. However, his powers tend to get dumbed down in order to give them a chance. Writers definitely let him get damaged easier than he should be.
> Of course none of the above really weakens your point which is that its nonsense to believe that WW could be as fast as Amazo. And it shows since, even after stunning Amazo with a huge kick, she still couldn't hit him with her follow up punch.
