Via submitted fan videos (…from Lil), Lil asks underrated questions about DC’s The Flash, Marvel’s Captain America and AMC’s/Image Comics’ The Walking Dead.
We saw an older Flash played by John Wesley Shipp on last season’s The Flash finale. That made me wonder: Would an older speedster like a 70 year-old Jay Garrick be necessarily slower and/or weaker than a 25 year-old Barry Allen?
Do speedsters age? Obviously, they do in the Greg Berlanti DC-verse because John Wesley Shipp was meant to look his age–a very handsome 61! If so, how much slower than normal humans do speedsters age, if they age differently at all?
RUN ON THAT.
Captain America is just a regular human being at the peak of human regenerative, athletic, and physical capabilities. Causal movie-goers may not know this very important detail but he is, in fact, not a “super”-hero, not technically. So yes, Cap CAN get super-super chunky if he chose to give up crime-fighting and just binge Netflix for a living while exclusively eating Chipotle for the rest of his life.
The question is: How long would that take?
- How long would it take Captain America to lose his six-pack (or twelve-pack, really) and acquire a dad body?
- And how long before his incredible metabolic rate can’t prevent him from tipping the scales toward a verdict of “morbidly obese”?

Which pop and/or movie stars do you think survived the Walker Apocalypse in the universe of “The Walking Dead?”
When I say “stars,” I don’t mean celebrities like Bear Grylls or Dave Salmoni. I mean specifically singers and actors like Beyoncé, Eminem, Tom Cruise, and Jamie Foxx. The artists.
Still, let’s keep in mind that a lot of these superstars came from humble and often-rough beginnings. It might not take as long for them to revert back to basic survivalist instincts as you would think for someone with so-called “champagne problems.”
