    Adventures of Superman

    Watching the episode where the 10 yr old girl wins a contest to go around the world with Superman and he says they will he back in 2 hours. That's just about 10,000 miles an hour. And she is just in her street clothes. Pretty sure the wind resistance alone would have cooked her skin.

    more like 12,450.775 mph. Superman's protective aura kept her safe.

    She could not see anything if they went around the world in 2hrs so what is the point?

    Byrne’s run said he had an aura is why his clothes never tore or got dirty except his cape

    Byrne--phhtt. Superman's aura is charm and tact.

    Yep Byrne's dealie, how else would he be able to fly people around like that otherwise? I'm more wondering how he can catch Lois in a free fall and not have her break her neck or something from the sudden stop.

    Well Byrne's aura only extended a few millimeters and while it kept his costume from being shredded it did not protect his cape. Plus by the time of the flight Superman had cured her blindness. Thus the blind girl won the contest but a sighted girl took the trip. Finally yes an equatorial round trip would be 12 thousand mph but thus trip went from Metropolis and over London and Paris and such. That was why I lowered my estimate to 10,000 mph.

    Guess that would depend on where Metropolis is. Given that Los Angeles was used for shots in the show perhaps its in California.
