Given that the shuttle was clearly dead and out of thrust while still thousands of feet in the air, she would have still hit the ground at terminal velocity.
    Just to nitpick, this in bold above is ABSOLUTELY not true. Terminal velocity is different for every different thing, because it's limited by friction. A feather has a VERY low terminal velocity, you have a significantly higher one, and a teflon-coated piece of gold in a streamlined shape has one significantly higher still.

    I mean that's not a nitpick, that's a foundational error, a person for instance can have their terminal velocity vary by nearly a hundred miles an hour depending on whether they're spread eagle or in a nose dive

    Even more: skydivers spread eagle versus making a delta vary by more than that. But yeah, I guess it's not a "nitpick" really. :-)

    It's the classic confusion of what gravity does versus how friction limits it. In a vacuum, a feather and a lead ball fall at exactly the same rate. But we don't have that condition on earth in general.

    I'm guessing you guys are talking about her in End game


    Yea, she is very durable, esspecially if we would use other characters as reference, but even if we don't... Feige said she would be the strongest hero and yea..


    Physically strongest anyway.
