Well is he?

Yes. The Speed Force, and those who channel it, are the fastest men alive. To the point that when all of Marvel's speedsters raced to the moon and back, a battered Barry Allen, bearded, wearing the tattered remains of his costume, and suffering from amnesia, appeared on Earth and beat them all there, despite them all having a sizable head start.

Hunter Zolomon is faster & Runner w/space gem debatably could be faster.

Nope because teleporters can get to points across the universe faster.

But if you count comics like Star Trek and Star Wars, Flash would be really slow in travel speed compared to these ships.

Zoom's time-manipulation pushes the boundaries of what exactly is meant by "speed"...it all muddies up if you include him.

@lightsout:Going off the title "fastest character of all" he should be included.

Fine, fine. But IMO if I challenged Usain Bolt to the 100m dash, stopped time and casually walked to the finish line (then resuming time & crossing it) - I may have won the race, but it takes the spirit out of asking who the fastest between us was.

I thought we were talking about characters, not rocket ships.

Pre-Retcon Beyonder is faster.

So very much faster.

Depends what you mean by fastest.

Through sheer running speed, without the aid of time manipulation or teleportation, the Flash is essentially the fastest (though, could the Black Racer give him a run for his money? I mean, it is the grim reaper of the speed force.)

However, in terms of simply getting from A to B, teleporters and time manipulators can move much faster.

Flash is possibly the fastest kinetic motion character.

But he's not the fastest character of all. Goku's instant transmission speeds are faster. (BUT INSTANT TRANSMISSION ISN'T KINETIC MOTION)
