There was a post a while back which asked the question who's faster? Flash or Superman. I noticed that someone tried to explain why flash is
definitly faster than Superman nowadays, and yet there were some fanboys who insisted that Superman was faster because they said so.
Superman doesn't have to be the best at everything or the best at everything he does. In truth i don't like the idea of an invincible superhero
anyhow. But even without invincibility superman is extraordinarily powerful.
Flash is considered to be the fastest man alive, even Marvel has respected that. But Superman could compare with him when he had his Silver Age
powers(now called Prime). But as witnessed in sinestro corps war and infinte crisis he no longer has that, so he can't do that anymore.
Even when he was prime was he better or equal with flash, not really because even though he could go the speed of light, Flash's powers have varied
and he has been able to go beyond that level of speed. They don't call him "The Fastest Man Alive" for no reason and that's what he is.
