Flash counters by noting Flash. The catch is while the ring's constructs and projectiles are that his advantage is being able to also ''react'' much faster than most people.fast, Sinestro isn't.

[[caption-width-right:300:If you [[SlowElectricity see it coming]], it's probably not travelling at light speed.[[note]]And since it disperses enough of its ambient energy to be visible even in clear atmosphere, it'll be ineffective even at astonishingly close ranges.

%%** Less destructive but highly effective microwave emmitters in the form of modern complex radar and ECM units can be used to track, blind and ''hack'' enemy radar and communication mechanisms. This was apparently used by Israeli strike craft against Syria in the recent past. The [[CoolPlane F-22's]] radar, among several other AESA systems, has been rumored to be capable of such feats as well.

* There's an arcade ShootEmUp called ''{{Strikers 1945}}.'' As the title suggests, it ostensibly takes place during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. You have a choice of six or so planes to fly against the ostensible Axis powers. Ostensibly because ''these are WWII-era planes in 1945 shooting these at transforming HumongousMecha.''
