I've searched and been unable to find clarification of a question I had about momentum and super running.
If I have a speedster:
Agi 5 Bra 1 Mnd 1
Super Running 5
Super Speed 5 w/Second Nature to negate Tiring

His speed per panel is 40 sq which would give a +3DM from momentum.
Do I have to actually move 40 sq to get momentum bonus or is it applied just because that's how fast I am?
If I do have to move, can I just run in a circle for 40 sq before hitting the bad guy and get the bonus?
Also, since I'm a Super Speed +5 I get 3 panels. Can I do this attack 3x per page?
And, if I'm hitting the same bad guy all 3 times, does he soak on each panel? or soak at the end of the third panel?

This seems overpowered but I'm not clear if it's legitimate or not.

My interpretation is that Momentum DM bonus is based on speed rather than number of squares moved.

On the second issue, the target would soak damage each time he is hit.

Personally I interpret it that you have to have moved that many squares first. Essentially you are building up momentum behind the blow.

I'd say by turning in circles, you might lose *some* of your forward momentum. But nothing says you can't double back on your path, either.

If you are in a small room, however, and you can run fast enough to run on the walls and cielings, we often have people run loop-de-loops around the room as the "wind up" before a really epic punch. They still have full momentum because they are moving straight the whole time; it just happens to be around a curved surface.

You soak damage each time you are hit.

Thanks for the response. You reminded of another soak question I had as well.

Does this apply to Swift Strike and Paired Weapons? So both hits from Swift Strike get soaked separately?

The speedster "winding up" before he hits you is a good example of comic book physics, even if it would leave Newton scratching his head. Wink

Yes, it applies to each separate attack, because each one rolls damage separately too.

Yes, that was my thought exactly when I was writing it about the wind-up. Like that episode of JL where the Flash sprints around the entire earth before punching Luthor... he could have just ran 10 feet at the same speed... But this is the genre we are emulating, people! We cannot question this, but be okay with a human running faster than light itself!
