Cannonball

I was wondering about it. I mean if you think about it his powers are similar to Wally West's. I know he's not as fast as Wally. but on a scale of 1 - 10: With 10 being Wally and 1 being, let's say The Turtle where is Cannonball?

@Jayso4201:

Shouldn't this be on the Cannonball page instead of the X-Men!?

Maybe, didn't know there was one. I just wanted replies not semantics.

@Jayso4201:  Maybe a 7?

Compared to the speedsters of the DC universe, Cannonball is slow. Those other guys could reach the speed of light. Not even Quicksilver and Northstar could run that fast. Cannonball I'd say could fly at supersonic speeds at best. So compared to DC's speedsters Quicksilver is a 7, Northstar is 8 and Cannonball would be a 5.

I don't think he is even at sonic or mach speeds but I think he is still pretty fast. I can't recall an issue where it has given anything definitive on how fast he flies. I think I have a handbook that put him around 150 mph as a max but it's not updated.  I think that would at least put him in Firestar/Human Torch/Sunfire flight speed range.

I'm not one for comparing 'stats' of things like strength & speed.  So in non-specific terms, he's as fast as a rocket but not as fast as the speed of sound...

aren't rockets faster than the speed of sound?

Some are.  He's certainly not faster than the speed of light.

agreed

I'm not saying he constantly moves at the speed of sound but I'm pretty sure he's had sonic booms where he breaks the sound barrier.
