the closest star to earth is the sun and its takes 8 min for light from the sun to reach earth so if they can travel faster than light

Never figured Thor to be a speedster, given that he doesn't show it..... Ever.

The gun was an inch or two from his head. You don't have to be that fast to stop a bullet, somebody did the math in the other thread.
It works out at  almost 16,000 mph roughly equivalent to Mach 20 in speed  
 
So its not something  Thor or Ms. Marvel are unable to do
 
Sentry should be faster than most Avengers in a straight line but Reaction time, I believe Quicksilver or Photon might also make it into the top 5

I think he doesn't blitz because he's either a bit of a numbskull when it comes to pure brains or else Thor follows some warrior-code where he has to meet people face to face in a fair battle and not blitz them...if he blitzed everyone he might not be worthy of holding the hammer
 
Some examples of blitzing would be, ripping Ironman to bits before Ironman can react
Smacking heralds when they are attacking him at light speed, smacking other cosmic bricks like Hyperion, classic Drax, Gladiator etc
Reacting to guys like Living Lightning
Giving Superman the fight of his life in a crossover many of you fans call "canon"
JMS Thor run, a bunch of bandits with semi automatic rifles from some place like Kenya open fire on  UN soldiers. After the bullet have been fired Thor moves in puts his body in the way of the bullets 
 
While Thor's speed feets are a bit rare, and the number of feats pale in comparison to the feats of Superman and Flash he doesn't have a long list. However Thor's speed feats are still consistent, they are on panel and proven and he can use speed if he really wants to

Not fighting speed, reaction. KS also didn't specify which he was referring to.

True. Although, reaction speed is usually the speed one associates with fighting.

I never figured Thor's Fighting-Skill to be so average, guess the Vikings don't really have many fighting styles beyond club-you-to-death
 
BTW what comic did you get that scan

But just because you can react to something doesn't always mean you can move as fast as what you reacted to. I'd say Thor also has better reaction speed than Sentry, though.

No he's not.Quicksilver's current top speed is Mach 5,Iron Man's top speed in his current series is unknown but in his Extremis Armor it was Mach 8.5.

I got my order mixed up.Quasar and Thor are FTL,Photon moves at light speed,Sentry moves at high mach speeds.Mach 15-20 maybe above that,and Iron Man moves at Mach 8.5.

I agree with Vance, the Avengers Thor, Quasar and Photon are up there 
Binary would also be there (Ms Marvel's strongest form)
 

I'm not sure who has the fastest reactions, Thor is a fast hero doesn't have too many reaction feats, he's not like Superman who normally snatches bullets out of the air
I believe Photon can easily re-act at light speed but because she is electromagnetic energy she does not fly beyond light speed

Thor doesn't really fly, the hammer helps him fly. Thor only goes FTL by holding onto the hammer as it drags him

I dont understand how this pertains to what I am saying here... I was simply asking what makes Photon and Quasar faster than Thor in terms of Flight Speed... this has nothing to do with the means of how Thor actually flies... even if Thor cant Fly under his own power... he still can indeed Fly FTL with the Hammer and we know Thor keeps the Hammer with him pretty much all the time...

alright... then how come you have Thor at Three on your list... and Photon at Two... when Thor has been able to excel Lightspeed in Flight

Good answer
 
This explains why Photon can't beat Thor's top speed
However she might have a faster reaction time than Thor

makes a joke of quicksilver
reacts and travels from the sun to earth by truning into a gamma laser  
literally catches bullets
makes a joke of Spider-Man's speed
searches every inch of the oceans in minutes
So quickly that Marvel react that others seem frozen in place

I don't think his reaction time is better then there's.Every speedster in the Avengers has superhuman reflexes so how do you determine who's faster?
#41 Posted by Pulsar (2333 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm gonna say Quasar. I'll look for the scan, but in one of the parts of Operation: Galactic Storm or whatever it was called, he was flying it 8X the speed of light. It was in outer space, but it's still him flying. I have to look for the scan.

We are going on reaction time. Spider-Man reacts before things happen.

Daredevil isn't an avenger. And Daredevil doesn't react before something happens. He reacts as it happens because of his enhance senses. Spider-man has an "early warning" sense.

It also stated that Spider-Man reacts 15 times faster than humans. If the reaction time wasn't there, that wouldn't have been stated.

That's not my point.My point is knowing what someone will do before they do it is an aid.It doesn't have anything to do with reaction time itself.Daredevil DOES react before something happens.I've seen him locate a sniper from a window 3 blocks away and move him and his wife before shots were fired.His wife doesn't have peak human reflexes and speed like he does so it's obvious he realized there was a shooter way before hand.Not to mention he had no idea there was a sniper after him.

You make it sound as if Spider-Man doesn't have superhuman reaction time because of his spider-sense, immediately dismissing it. That's what I meant by that.
