Superhero FYI: The Flash is WAY faster than Superman


I find myself having to explain this a ton: Flash is way fucking faster than Superman.

For a while, it was a really fun debate. Fastest man alive vs Fastest being alive.  It’s spawned more than a few races over the years both in the comics (ifanboy), and on TV (Smallville , Superman: The Animated Series). Alex Ross even gave it the old “Alex Ross” treatment in 2004 (above)

These races often ended in ties, or were interrupted by some supervillain catastrophe.  But facts are facts: Superman is faster than a speeding bullet. Flash is so fast he ran BACK IN TIME. Any debate was put to bed in 2009’s Flash Rebirth #3 (below):


Boom Roasted. Flash Fried. 



There will be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed most. No matter how buried it gets, or how lost you feel, you must promise me that you will hold on to Hope.
