I'm pretty sure the questions were rhetorical, and it was more about you having trouble getting into the spirit of the show. That said.. It has been shown numerous times that she caused a disturbance in the air, and papers have moved or fallen off desks. Does it happen everytime? I really don't pay attention. The only point for me is that she kicked into superspeed mode and did whatever. Got it. Then I go with it. The show had quite a narrative on how she needed to swipe the security card, but if she slowed down too much, she'd show up on camera, but if she didn't slow down enough, the card reader wouldn't pick up the swipe. How did she manage it? Beats me. I've forgotten. But at least they addressed it.
I could put together long list of things that "don't make sense" but in the real of superheroes, I think it's consistent within itself for the most part. They have not said anything yet about Michael Chiklis having super density in addition to super strength. For instance, if he stepped into a swimming pool, would he have to walk to the shallow end to get out? (Due to sinking to the bottom if he has super density.) Stopping a bullet isn't about strength in the traditional sense. It's either about density or tensile strength. If Chiklis had super density, he'd break chairs by sitting down, etc. He doesn't. That leads me to believe he has super traditional strength and super tensile strength (ability to withstand opposing forces). Which brings us to his super jumps and landing on buildings. You could drop a human being from a plane and it wouldn't damage the roof of skyscraper. Therefore his landings shouldn't damage them either -- unless he has superdensity (which we've ruled out). They could have addressed this easily by pointing out out he has trouble stopping and having them show him crashing into ventilation ducts, satellite dishes, etc. instead of leaving craters in the roof. But again, I just go with it. As I said, I could come up with things like this all day. Luckily, I've been able to mostly avoid even thinking about them and just go with it.
