Smurph Post 1
We're traveling at Mach 1. That's pretty much indisputable. The lowest of comic street-levelers easily move a few times faster than real life athletes, and Wolverine and Iron Fist have no shortage of feats consisting of them dancing around even the most well known superheroes with superior speed. For comparison, fitting Wolverine with Iron Fist's chi powers and training would make Logan to his former self what Iron Fist is to human athletes and fighters. This would put us over three times what the speed cap is, so even if Omega Vision wanted to argue that we're not that much better than real people, it doesn't make any difference- we still exceed the speed cap at the 4x as fast that he said he'd believe.
So, we're covering a kilometer at Mach 1.
Mach 1 = ~340.3 m/s
Kilometer = 1000 meters
1000/340.3 = 2.9s
That's how long it would take for Ruin to personally reach his opponents. If the judges for any reason believe that we would need to take this to hand-to-hand (a match that would be ridiculously spiteful in our favor), then we would spend less than three seconds before Ruin's claws move through his opponent's skulls backed by Iron Fist's chi-amped blows.
For reference to how powerful Iron Fist can hit:
He's recently gotten a huge upgrade since Omega Vision's scans regarding him vs. Luke.
He accomplished this with one strike:
Yes, that's a helicarrier.
Here, he put down a dragon significantly bigger and stronger than the original dragon that he put down to gain his powers, and he did it in two strikes:
Here, he damages Luke with an unamped kick, then puts him down in one blow:
Keeping in mind once again that Ruin not only has this chi at his disposal, but also Wolverine's claws. Ruin will make extremely short work of any opponent that he comes across physically, and, as shown, he will arrive there in less than three seconds.
It won't even take that long. 2.9s is how long it would take Ruin to physically reach the other team and one-shot them. Why need to physically reach them though, when we have the most powerful long-range attacks in the entire tourney?
Ruin is capable of replicating the above feat at greater power, with greater range. In truth, we wouldn't even need to move from our position to one-shot our opponents. We're doing that from the getgo of the match. We can reach them in 2.9s, but it would take an incredibly small fraction of that time for our blast of pure physical force to wipe out them along with everything around them. They would be blasted just like that sentinel, and entire buildings would fall on them.
Omega's only sole hope to avoid this fate was ludicrously impossible: He hoped that Mr. Terrific would realize what was happening, instruct his T-Spheres to dive-bomb us in a fashion that would avoid the constant obliteration of Ruin's optic blasts, and that the T-Spheres would accomplish this task not only before we kill the opponents, but before we turn our heads to look at them (which would destroy the objects regardless).
Iron Fist was fast enough to deflect around 50 flechettes from 5 feet away prior to his massive amp:
Ruin has that speed 10 fold, as well as both Iron Fist and Wolverine's hyper senses, amplified further by current IF's massive chi store.
Ruin does not need to slap these T-Spheres away. He does not need to dodge their impact, shrug it off, or do anything remotely fancy. He simply needs to turn his head. That in itself would obliterate anything incoming as optic blast meets small metal orb.
It's all pointless anyways though, as we wouldn't even need to destroy the T-Spheres. Why? Well, we have Wolverine's healing factor.
He eats explosions for breakfast.
If he was conscious after THIS:
A T-Sphere isn't going to do much.
I also don't see high-speed velocity explosions doing much to a man who kept fighting as a walking skeleton immediately after crashing in the Blackbird.
Anyways, here's the hilarious part: Omega's vaunted SOS plan is a bust anyways, as Leo has ruled:

all gear is also capped at mach 1.
So not only would he have absolutely no time to implement it, not only would there be absolutely no chance of getting hit, not only would we survive it regardless, but the whole thing is illegal in the first place.
Ruin one-shots them from the getgo. If you have any doubts about his capability to do so via-optic blasts, I encourage you to review Cyclops feats in the opening post. If there is still nagging doubt, realize that we could be an amalgam of two without Cyclops, and still have little problem speedblitzing our opponents with greater power output and deadliness than they can muster, and with greater skill and speed than they can hope to match, topped off with healing and dodging more than sufficient to ensure that they can never put us down.
