    Well i don't think Supes should be above the Black Racer, but the rest looks decent.

    Interesting. I wish we had a better image. I would like to read the captions.
    I've seen your end and it starts with you challenging me.

    That's pretty cool. I IIke how Williamson gives reasons for their ranking which includes other aspects besides just pure speed but also individual characteristics.

    Yeah my boy Wally is number 1. Lol.

    I think they got Barry's caption box mixed up with something else.

    And I think wonder woman and cheetah should be way lower. WW I sent exactly known for her speed unless she has something like the sandals of Hermes to give her a boost. And cheetahs are fast but not supernaturally so.

    But still very cool list.
    Favorite Heroes - Flash/Wally West, Superman, Green Lantern/Hal Jordan, Nightwing, Hawkman, Firestorm, Supergirl/Linda Danvers, Zatanna, Robin/Tim Drake.

    Current Comics Picking Up - Action Comics, Superman, Wonder Woman, Hal Jordan & the GLC, Flash, Hawkman.
    Bane Conquest, Mera, Brave and the Bold, The Terrifics.
    Go Go Power Rangers.

    No, especially not below Shazam.

    Complete nonsense, the Sandals of Hermes don't amp speed at all and WW had anyways the Speed of Hermes on her own as she used the sandals.

    And of course is WW known for her speed, did you just sleep for the last decades?

    Cheetah is literally a supernatural Cheetah empowered by a God you genius...

    But i find it pretty interessting that you start with strong WW and Cheetah lowballing, while Supes is above the goddamn Black Racer.

    I mean, part of Wonder Woman's tagline is "Swifter than Mercury."

    I like that list. The only thing I would change is put BR above Superman. Superman should be faster than all others except the Flashes and their OP enemies like RF.

    Poor Wallace at the bottom of the list, even if Williamson acknowledges he has the potential to be faster. Although I wouldn't be surprised if he feels really self-conscious when Bart comes back and proves to be faster then he is.

    Having Wonder Woman on this list feels kind of weird. Not that I don't think she can be super-fast, but writers hardly ever emphasize her speed for the most part, though she generally has rapid reflexes. Although even the description just says she's high up because she's a trained runner, rather then because of her natural abilities.

    Has Cheetah been depicted with impressive super-speed in the comics recently? I can only recall cartoons depicting her with speed on par with The Flash.

    I think Black Racer should be above Superman and closer to the Flashes. Between Thawne, Wally, Barry, and Black Racer it should be neck-and-neck. Not with Superman in my opinion.

    Yeah, he needs to get in line when there is Bart, Irey and even Jesse as the top contender. The same thing was said for them too ("they can be the fastest when they realize their full power" etc. etc.). I also noticed the lack of Avery as well.

    She could tag Barry back in New 52 and before that she had superspeed thanks to an affair with Hunter.

    I think Black Racer should be above Superman and closer to the Flashes. Between Thawne, Wally, Barry, and Black Racer it should be neck-and-neck. Not with Superman in my opinion.
    I agree.


    I also found it interesting that Eobard's weakness is a similar weakness Wally carried back in Mark Waid run. The only difference is that Wally overcame that limit while Thawne couldn't.

    Cheetah the last time in New52(as she also transformed Supes into another Cheetah) and WW just theoretically very recently against amped Supergirl, but i see that list also as a possible sign that DC maybe finally stops ignoring WW's and especially Cheetah's superspeed that often(i mean they also learned that completely depowering her is a very stupid idea, after they pretty much tried it with Supes too...).

    I completely agree with that.

    Why? Superman is historically the only hero who could match Flash.

    It's called SUPERspeed for a reason. Superman was fast before Flash was even a concept.
