Here's the feat. Pretty straightforward. He moves his arm from resting position to an outstretched angle before the lasers can hit him. So we just need to measure the distance from him to the fire-team and measure how long a quarter circle made by his arm would be.

Superboy Height - 1.7 meters

Shin Length - 106.68 px

Thigh Length - 86.4 px

Torso and Head Length - 131.75 px

Arm Length - 108.73 px

106.68+86.4+131.75 = 324.83 px

1.7/324.83 = 0.00523 meters per px

108.75*0.00523 = 0.57 meter long arm

That looks weird but I guess it'd be normal considering his height.

2*3.14*0.57 = 3.5796 meter circumference

3.5796/4 = 0.8949 meter swing


Alright now for the distance.

Panel Height - 488 px

Assumed Marshal Height - 6 feet or 1.82 meters

Marshal Height - 113 px

2*atan(113/(488/tan(70/2))) = 12.52 degrees

8.2958 meters to the Marshal

Superboy Torso Height - 137 px

Superboy Thigh Length - 98.08 px

137+98.08 = 235.08 px

Knee Height/Real Height Ratio - 0.264 to 0.339

The shin is roughly the same length as your thigh, with most proportion measurements having the thigh be so slightly shorter it barely makes a difference.

98.08+235.08 = 333.16 px

1.7/333.16 = 0.0051 meters per px

Kneeling Height - 237 px

0.0051*237 = 1.2 meters

2*atan(237/(488/tan(70/2))) = 25.92 degrees

Using angsize calculator again...

2.6072 meters to Superboy

8.2958-2.6072 = 5.6886 meters


Now finally for the actual speed.

5.6886 meters/c = 18.975 nanoseconds

0.8949 meters/18.975 nanoseconds = 4.716e7 m/s

Final Tally

Superboy Blocks a Laser - 15.73% SoL
