Summary:

• Super-hero jumps are characterized by an enormous jump magnification.
• Push time is very short for a realistic jump to have an enormous magnification.
• Using slow-motion is an old trick for disguising the timing of an enormous jump.
• Jumps may be enhanced by launching the character, such as a human cannonball.
• Humans have a limited tolerance to extreme accelerations (g-forces).
