how many speedsters does marvel have

#2 Edited by DaAwesome2 (266 posts) - - Show Bio

Quicksilver, Makkari, Speed Demon, Whizzer (but he's from an alternate universe so I don't know if he counts)

Marvel is really weak in the speedster dept compared to DC.

PS. I don't know if Runner counts.

Technically Pulsar (Monica) was a speedster too, she's faster than on par with Makkari and Northstar in term of speed, in fact, she has better speed feat than virtually any Marvel character.

There's a ton, maybe define what you mean by speedster. Does fliers count or do you want only runners

Super-speed is my favorite power set and Marvel is wanting. i think mainly because Flash is THE man when it comes to speed feats. Flash had done it all pretty much. Id like to see a character explore an aspect of their speed like showing Spidermans spider-speed. even tame feats like Cap running literally a mile a min is impressive

Thor (with the aid of moljinar) and Silver Surfer can be as fast as any comic character. Including maybe Flash. But if you mean someone whose power set is defined by their speed, or speed is their only super-power. That's always been more of a DC thing.

@Manwhohaseverything: Don't put thor in the same category as Silver Surfer or the flash, both have shown going to speed well beyond speed of light.

@Therrieur When in flight Thor's hammer can move at twice the speed of light, which means Thor can fly at that same speed. Granted, he's still not as fast as Flash but he can move faster than speed of light when flying.

You counted northstar but not Aurora ? "Aurora has the power of flight and is capable of moving at superhuman speeds.When concentrating, she can accelerate her body to a velocity in direct proportion to the amount of kinetic energy she has tapped. It is theoretically possible for her to come close to moving at light speed"

@fesak:

Yeah, I'm assuming he means runners and people that can have all around super speed (reading, thought processes, etc.,) like Whizzer. But I could be wrong.

If it's just people who travel at super speed than the list is quite long as virtually anyone who flies is moving at several hundred miles per hour at least.
