How much is estimated g-force experienced by people grabbed and moved by Flash, and many times does it exceed fatal dose of (around) 65g?

Why don't these people die because if the G-force?

    Nobody has been shown to die (or even suffer any real effects) from being moved at speed, so I'd assume it never approaches a fatal amount. I'd assume that whatever aspect of the Speed Force protects Barry from G-forces also applies to anything/anybody he's in contact with. – Anthony Grist Mar 2 '16 at 14:03

  • Yeah, it's basically the same reason Superman can pick up an iceberg without ending up with an iceberg-size pile of ice-cubes. Super powers extend beyond the body in non-obvious ways. – Harry Johnston Mar 2 '16 at 20:57

The Speedforce allows the Flash, and by extension, people he carries, to ignored things like relativity, acceleration, and the environmental destruction that would normally be associated with moving at Mach speeds in atmosphere.

  • So, is it 0gs then? Or is there, say 0.5g, 1g, or some other non-lethal amount of acceleration on people he carries? – Ellesedil Mar 2 '16 at 21:10
  • There's no answer to this. The Speedforce allows him to vary all those factors, so it could be any of the above. – Emma Vega Mar 4 '16 at 6:38
