Out of Thor and Deathstroke, who has the superior reflexes/reaction time?

#2 Posted by jeanroygrant (20191 posts) - - Show Bio

Thor has microsecond reaction time

What's Deathstroke's

#3 Posted by Spartan101 (2281 posts) - - Show Bio

pretty sure thor is better

Without the hammer and in the ground perhaps arguable.

With the hammer Thor :)

What does it matter for Thor? 
 
Thor has at least microsecond reaction speed, at best light speed one.

Really? Where did you see that? This isn't travelling speed, we're talking Pure reactions speed on the ground, when he's stationary.

I haven't seen many reaction speed feats from Slade. What has he done?

When he was helping Rulk, when Rulk was going into Black Hole. Thor was flying FTL (without that speed he wouldn't be able to help Red Hulk) and was able to react fast enough to catch Rulk at full speed. 
It is debatable (that is why I've said "at best"), but microsecond one isn't. 
 
And Mjolnir doesn't amp Thor's stats at all.

But the point is that he was flying FTL. Obviously when a character is traveling FTL or at around the same speed they have to exhibit reaction of a similar speed.

Reacted to kid flash. All though we don't know how fast kid flash was moving.

I would assume Thor has the greater reaction speed but Deathstroke definitely utilizes his more.

Thor is just a brawler and rarely fights smart.

I would give Thor the majority, as he's reacted to speedsters as well (once KO'd Quicksilver by a ground-smash before Pietro could get to him). Deathstroke may use his reaction time more, due to his skill, yet Thor isn't completely without skill, he fights smarter than Namor, for sure.

That's not a reaction feat. That's Thor devastating a wider area of effect to prevent QS from running because he otherwise failed to react to him directly. Deathstroke, on the other hand, has reacted to speedsters directly on multiple occasions. Of course, everyone will start saying it's either PIS or that he has only ever done it with prep (both of which are untrue).
 
Thor has supposedly better feats than Slade if we dig up 50 year old scans where he reacts in microseconds. And pretty much nothing else that I have ever seen.

Pretty much this. Thor's reaction time hasn't been consistent for awhile now. In fact most of Marvel's strong guys that do have super human speed and reflexes tend to have slower feats and trouble tagging supposedly less fast opponents. Thor's got a few good speed feats decades ago, but nowadays he's admitted Wolverine is faster and he doesn't have current feats on the ground that really suggest otherwise, at least to my knowledge.

@god_spawn: I have read the past two Thor volumes in their entirety, and I honestly don't recall him reacting at explicitly stated or demonstrated superhuman speeds in either one of them (akin to what characters such as Superman are portrayed to do regularly). If anyone has any recent examples of him doing so, I'll be more than pleased to concede and revise my statement.

@Morpheus_: I would be very pleased to be proved wrong as well. I would be very happy if they gave Thor his speed back. I don't think street levelers should be faster than he is.

Co-signed. I'd much prefer it if the major Marvel powerhouses were written similarly to DC's in terms of reaction timing.

False. They were not yet at the event horizon (the part of the black hole where you need to be faster than light to escape). The event horizon is the black part (Because you need to be faster than light to escape...)

Not sure what you mean by exhibit reaction of a similar speed, but you can go extraordinarily fast and have crappy reaction times, especially if you're flying in space where there are not a lot of things you'd need to dodge or go around and they tend to be hundreds of thousands of miles apart.

I'm not following you in the first part.

And of course you can go at incredible speeds and still have extremely crappy reaction times, but you shouldn't make an argument that Thor has a light speed reaction time in combat by using a feat he used in travel speed.

I want to say Thor, but considering he has gotten blitzed by characters with literally almost no speed at all on multiple occasions and street levelers have remarked about how slow he is, as well as even admitting that Wolverine is faster than him.....I'm having second thoughts.

Thor IMO is the victim of bad writing, not always....I mean he's not as fast as Flash or Surfer but someone of Thor's showings are poor

some of Thor's showings are just down to writers lowballing Thor to make his fights vs street levelers more interesting

I'm not saying Thor is a speed blitzer. Personally I think Thor has super speed in a straight line and his reflexes might be bullet time or his reactions might only be bullet time

but Thor does have a few feats that might be considered FTL or microsecond reaction...Thor has high showings too, are we supposed to Ignore all these !?

I don't believe Thor is that fast, but he did show speed in his last space fight....just throwing that out there is all
