Fans of DC stories know that in this great and popular franchise we can find many characters that have qualities and skills which are quite impressive and prominent, which make it much easier for them to combat any type of threat that may arise.
The one who stands out the most and is even considered the representative hero of DC is the popular and beloved Supermanwho thanks to his great strength and toughness is literally known as “the Man of Steel”.
On the other hand, another hero who is also pretty prominent is Flashwho is one of the 12 fastest superheroes that exist, also being considered by some as the fastest hero of DC.
However, there are people who differ in this opinion, and compare Flash with other characters, such as Superman, therefore DC has given a definitive answer to the question: Flash vs. Superman: who is faster?

Flash vs. Superman: who is faster?
for quite some time, Flash has been compared to other characters of the same franchise in terms of speed, and even with other characters that have no relationship with the company to which this hero belongs, for example, the time it was stated that a race between Sonic and Flash would be something epic .
Also, a big question that has been around for a long time is: Who is faster between Flash and Superman?because both heroes have incredible abilities and skills, among which we can find super speed.
On several occasions the question of who is faster between these two characters has been raised, who they have run together on several occasions in comics, movies and animated series. The first time they both ran together was in volume #199 of the comic. Superman, in the year 1967; both heroes made a race around the world with the goal of supporting charity.
In several of the occasions in which they have run together it has been shown that Flash is faster, while others show that Superman is faster, as is the case in the Justice League movie, which shows how the Man of Steel can see, predict and counteract Flash attacks.
In volume #49 of the comic Flashfrom DC, shows us Barry Allen and Wally West participating in a high speed chase that threatens to destroy the earth, as the Speed Force produces shock waves that affect other aspects of reality.
In order to stop Amanda Waller from placing a deadly ban on them and their teammates, the Justice League and the Titans decide they must do something to stop them. It is then that Superman begins to fly after the heroes with the aim of stopping them and discovering the reason why they are so agitated.
It is not long before Superman returns with his allies and the ARGUS group led by Amanda Waller, and surprisingly he returns panting and exhausted, having to take a moment to breathe, because hasn’t been able to reach either of the Flash nor get close enough to be heard.
This gives us a clear sign that between Flash and Superman, flash is much fasterWell, in this comic we have been able to witness that the Man of Steel has not even been able to get close to the two Flashes.
Other evidence that Flash is faster can be seen reflected in volume #3 of the comic. The Flash: Rebirthin which Barry Allen admits that on occasions when they ran for charity has let superman win.
Although Superman is a very distinguished hero of the DC franchise, and has demonstrated great skill on numerous occasions, the reality is that The Flash is DC’s fastest living hero.which leaves the Man of Steel in second place.
Although this comic has given an answer to one of the biggest questions that exist among DC fans, by showing the two Flash, Barry Allen and Wally West, running together, it raises a new big question, and it is: which of the two Flash is faster? It remains to wait some time to see if this great question is answered soon in DC comics.
