DC Confirms Who’s Faster: The Flash or Superman?

by Lidia Lucovic

The latest issue of The Flash comic book series has finally resolved a long-standing debate among fans of comic book trivia: who is the true “Fastest Man Alive” – The Flash or Superman? The question has been subject to various official answers since the two superheroes first raced for charity in Superman #199 in 1967.

Subsequent races between them, in different media such as comics, cartoons, and movies, have produced conflicting claims. Generally, the comics depict The Flash as the faster hero, with different versions of the character, including Barry Allen, Wally West, and Jay Garrick, having surpassed Superman in various instances. In contrast, other media tend to portray Superman as the faster of the two, as demonstrated by the Justice League movie, where he anticipates and counters The Flash’s high-speed maneuvers.

Superman Unable to Pursue Either Version of The Flash

The Flash issue #49 features Barry Allen and Wally West engaging in a high-speed pursuit, which poses a threat to the Earth due to the repercussions of The Speed Force on reality. The Justice League and the Titans intervene to stop the two speedsters, who are being targeted by Amanda Waller and the ARGUS organization. As the situation escalates, Superman takes to the skies in pursuit of both Flashes, hoping to determine the cause of their agitation.

Within a matter of seconds, Superman returns to his team and the ARGUS personnel, but noticeably out of breath and gasping for air. His appearance shows signs of physical exertion, with his hair disheveled, his face flushed, and his skin sweaty. Superman informs the group that he failed to catch up with The Flashes and was unable to make himself heard by them.

The Flash has Always Been Faster Than Superman

Flash Rebirth issue #3 confirms that Barry Allen had intentionally let Superman win some of their past charity races. However, The Flash remains the true Fastest Man Alive, surpassing even Kryptonians in speed thanks to the Speed Force. While Superman is undoubtedly a powerful hero and a close contender for the title of the world’s fastest, he falls short of the capabilities of the Speed Force.

While some Superman fans may refuse to acknowledge this fact and insist on his unparalleled power in all domains, this story further bolsters the reputation of both Barry Allen and Wally West. The ongoing Flash War event may provide more insight into which version of The Flash holds the title of Fastest Man Alive.
