This gets weird with regards to space, but the impression I get is that it still can't change the current vector.

    Putting it another way, I'm pretty sure that if the Flash tried to speed boost a rock that's just sitting on the ground, it would just heat up and explode. Which, would be useful in space travel, but also just a rocket.
    I was asking if he passed by an asteroid field if he could steal the speed of a few moving rocks and use it to adjust his own course.

    has flash ever pulled a gambit like feat of stealing every bit of kinetic energy in atoms and freezing everything AOE in general? IIRC he hasn't done anything like that though he has been shown to move so fast that everything seems to be frozen in place relatively.

    As far as I'm aware, the Flash has to touch an object to take speed from it. If he's close enough to touch it, then he can just move it around normally and maneuver like that.

    He drained excess speed out of the entire earth in JLA Obsideon Age to offset the force of Wonder Woman, Superman and Martian Manhunter dragging it around.

    Way back when, IIRC, Flash (original Barry) wanted to travel to another star (for reasons I don't remember). He propelled himself by vibrating molecules out of his feet to propel himself. I think he only did this once. I have no memory of how he dealt with the rigors of space.

    ah so he hasn't done it actually but going by this feat he could pull it off if he so chooses though of course it doesn't explain why he didn't simply use that power to counter gamemnae. surely he could have redirected the water with his power much like she could do so magically?

    He was speed stealing the shockwaves that would rip the planet apart. That feat is pretty weird, thoughm and I'm not sure how it translates to other situations.

    By that point, the planet needed to be moved back into position and he didn't have any way to do that. Speed stealing isn't telekinesis. I'm not sure how he's supposed to move water around except by hand, and even with super speed that's going to work poorly.

    He has speed stolen people and left them as statues on a couple of occasions. Speed steals generally wear off once the Flash lets go, so it's usually a temporary tactic. I actually only remember Wally West trying to make it permanent once, and he probably would have been better off just putting the dude in prison.

    Or is moving off-planet something he point-blank has never done on his own without external help?

    Can pretty much run on *photons - light waves/particles, and release atoms (particles/waves) in specific directions to re-direct himself.

    What is really hard to resist launching into the discussion is the end of the first set of scans above: "When the aroused speedster..."

    Um. What, DC?

    Really? Another one of those?
