Can a character use Hypersonic speed and throw and object?
Ex: Black Adam Starts his movement and picks up an object 3 spaces away. He continues his movement and throws the object at movement 5. Then he continues to run back the 5 spaces that he was originally standing.
To the best of my knowledge, the FAQ does not change this.
I just looked through the most recent one - it makes it clear that HSS does NOT grant a close/ranged combat action (or power action) - just a ranged/close attack. As far as I know, the rulebook has not changed throwing objects to anything other than a ranged combat ACTION.

I did it this weekend also and 2 different judges said that that move is normal and definitly legal. In fact one judge says he uses that move all the time. If you can pick up an object with HSS and hit with it then you should be able to get in range and then throw it and move out of range. What sense is it that you can grab an object continue on and smack with it but can't throw it. Either way you are using it.
Good saying :

And one for you City Of Heros players ...........

Good Trader Site :
It may not make any sense, but it is still an illegal move. From the PAC --
HYPERSONIC SPEED (optional): Choose one of the following: (1) When you give this character a move action, it automatically breaks away and may move through squares adjacent to opposing characters. This character receives one free action during its movement that it may use to make a close combat or ranged combat attack. It can continue to use the rest of its movement after making the attack.
and from the Rules --
A character with Super Strength can throw an object at an opposing character, as shown in Figure 19. To throw an object, give the character a ranged combat action, even if its range value is 0. A light object can be thrown 6 squares, and the target of a successful attack is dealt 2 damage. A heavy object can be thrown 4 squares, and the target of a successful attack is dealt 3 damage.
You can only make a ranged combat ATTACK when using HSS, and it takes a ranged combat ACTION to throw an object.
In my day, we didn't have Heroclix. If you were being attacked by Superman with a 3d dumpster, you just had to hope you could outrun him.
