Fist of God

What does a supercell updraft look like when it explodes upward in 5000 J/kg CAPE? Some chasers describe this as the fist of God, which is what is seen here near Binger, Oklahoma, on May 31, 2013. (The crisp anvil indicates the presence of supercooled water in the anvil and thus a powerful, active updraft.)
