Why is Superman #1 at speed?

Shouldn't that be Flash?

It's more of a popularity contest than a actual ranking system.

yeah and besides there are faster things than flash

#4 Posted by Methias (437 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman is #1 in unarmed combat... obviously these are off by a LOT.

Hey, I totally believe that the Flash is and should be faster than Superman. Flash is faster than light for Pete's sake!!

I agree that the flash is faster, but this is a popularity contest

the rankings are fan based,because there is no way that batman is the smartest overall,he's up there but not number one

I'd said that Zoom is number one at speed.He's not really a speedster but somehow messed with time to make other move slower.

There's also no way Batman is a #1 in Escape Artist.Mr.Miracle should be the one.

Well then Quicksilver should be higher than 12. Now that he can mess with time as well.

But yeah, it sucks that these rankings are just popularity. Superman should be up there...but definitely outside of the top 3 or 5.

a lot of the rankings are off, for example how do you rank flight?

actually it should probably be a draw between the Runner and the Beyonder...

but thats beyond the point lol

the rankings are basically an overblown popularity contest, i remember a while back Gambit had a higher ranking Blast Power than the One Above All...

I always think that Flash or the runner is very fast,but then again,I forgot that Superman was travelling so fast that he nearly goes into heaven and speak with God Almighty himself.At least that has happenned once in the Bronze Age.No Speedster can really go this fast with sheer power(No dimensional force,or any magical help)

I know, those Ranking things are so fked up!

So is speed based of flight not running then? If so any speedster should be taken off that.

Because he's f**king fast? working it out he has actually flown faster than Flash has ran several times now... so, yeah, he's faster... sorry fanboys M "

But it could be argued that Silver Surfer is on par with Superman's speed to right ? "

Hes faster.

Well, I dont think Superman is the fastest. But he isnt that far from the number 1 spot

Speed is based on any movement, running, flight, whatever

Thats cause in hyperspace you can go to your destination even faster. Why fly at light speed and above when you can just take hyperspace?? Would you use a skate board or a bike??

Speed is based on any movement, running, flight, whatever

If thats the case then flash should really be up there. He actually shows thing people never though you could do with just speed. That vibrating of the molecules use to be so amazing lol.

yeah, even speed of nuerons in your brain. superman could be the smartest due to the fact that his brain can function really really fast. as for his speed, well i won't say he's not quick, but he can be in two places at once.

Just how are these rankings done? I hit the rank button but my picks don't seem to get counted. I checked the total # of wins/losses for the character...made my picks and checked again...numbers did not change.

to tell you the honest go od truth the fastest person in the comic universe is actually silver surfer....for those who say superman should be on top 5 he really should be but yes flahs and supes are equal.

Adam Warlock is just as fast as Silver Surfer

If these were accurate, One-Above-All would be number one at everything.

For besarker strength it should be superman or superman prime. Also superman prime should be # 1 for super sterngth and berserker stergth.

The one above all isn't number one at divine power, that should tell you never to trust the ranking system.

#32 Posted by DarkLineTeam (17 posts) - - Show Bio

Flash faster, I think he beat all speedster in dc comic and marvel. Barry allen run so fast more faster then light and jump to marvelverse than he got amnesia and he change his name to buried alien and he race all speedster including quicksilver,makkari,the runner etc etc and he win it. Supes doesn't have a change to flash, flash can steal his speed.

God damn, people really like voting batman #1 at as much things as they can:

Smartest

Best Escape Artist

Best In Hand To Hand Combat

Etc

@2cool4fun:

it depends in what fields you are talking about in tactics and detective natured situations Batman is the best but if you want to build a transdiminsional gateway he can do it but your better off calling like 10 other people before him.

He is the best human escape artist but not the best thats Mr Miracle when you have the powers of the new gods and their tech thats hard to beat

Now Batman isnt the best hand to hand fighter that Wonder Woman becuase of her great strength and skill and even Superman beat him in that reguard but Batman is the best martal artist which makes him the best "human" hand to hand fighter the differance being skill while Batman is more skilled their stregths bascialy make his skills not worth much which is why when fighting meta humans Batman has to supplement his fung fu with some gadgets or even a suit

True. He is the best tactician, but not sure in detective work since we have "The Question"

@2cool4fun:

He is not the best escape artist ( Mr. Miracle is ) or human escape artist, Calvin Rose is that now.

Wonder Woman is better not because of powers, but because she was trained her whole life by amazons and the god of war him self.

But He is the best "Human" fighter.

@2cool4fun:

WORLDS GREATEST DECTIVE so ya i think he beats the Question

Well Carlvin is dead so techicaly iam still right

well ancient greek fighting styles might as well be ping pong for all thats worth in modern combat but all in all it just dosnt really matter
