However, I think it could possibly be explained by the greater solar energy he gets exposed as he gets closer to the suit. So his maximum speed is constantly increasing as he gets closer and then would gradually decrease as he travels away.
That makes plenty of sense. Whether they get too far into the science of it or not, I think that could work.
I also don't need him to be able to leave our solar system unaided. I just feel like if he does, they have to remain consistent with his flight speeds.
The public likes you, Bernie. That's the only reason this might fly. But that means it's on you. They're all coming after you now. Not just the banks: politicians, journalists, cops. Anyone whose wallet's about to get lighter. Are you up to it?
