There's a scene in my story where a character is required to save another from a sniper shot. This character has enhanced sense, the ability to use manifest energy that can be condensed as a shield, and superhuman strength/toughness. However, I wanted to at least try following the laws of physics, and this character while physically impressive, is only a 300 year old vampire, while there are much older vampire out there.
Basically, I'm trying to find a balance in power scaling, to where empowered humans can keep up with this 300 age vampire, without needing to make them 30x stronger than regular people or crazy numbers like that.
I was thinking the vampire would use enhanced senses to pick up the bullet and a barrier to stop it. But what sort of reaction time would this require? Is it possible to physically react to it, say swipe it with claws, without being obscenely strong? And what sort of sense would the vampire use to plausibly pick up the bullet?
