** Most of Spider-Man's foes posess a similar level of speed, such as the Scorpion, ComicBook/Venom, and ComicBook/Carnage (who is even faster). Special mentoin should go to Speed Demon, the only flat-out speedster in Spidey's rogues gallery, who reaches Sonic levels of speed.

* ComicBook/IronMan has armors that can fly at Hypersonic speeds and after becoming infected with the Extremis Virus, he gains the Superhuuman reflexes to boot.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBook/SpiderMan:
** Spider-Man himself has reflexes that are 15-40 (DependingOnTheWriter) times greater than that of a trained human, and in conjunction with his Spider-Sense they make dodging bullets child's play. It also makes him difficult to hit in close combat, even by those who posess true SuperSpeed such as Thor and Quicksilver. Spidey once even covered a gun's barrel ''after'' the trigger was pulled, but ''before'' the bullet was fired. As a result of his reflexes and SuperStrength, which also extends to his leg muscles, Spidey can maintain a comfortable running speed of over 60 mph, which might seem slow compared to other examples on this list, but is still well over twice the top sprinting speed of a real-world athlete. He can also reach much higher speeds via web-slinging.

* Marvel comics has a character from ComicBook/PowerPack and Loners named Julie, nicknamed Light Speed. She can move fast, react fast and heals fast. However, despite being called "Lightspeed", in one comic, upon breaking the sound barrier, she claimed she was at her limit.

** From the '60s to the '90s Quicksilver is the benchmark/topline speedster of Marvel. In the various Marvel Universe handbooks, nobody could run faster than him (though in the case of Aurora/Northstar and Makkari of the Eternals, they can go faster than him because of flight). Unfortunately back then, his top speed was...175 miles an hour, so Marvel's next fastest speedsters - the Whizzer and Speed Demon would run 125 or 150 miles an hour.

** Aquaman can swim much faster than Clark can.



*** In the second season, Barry meets Jay Garrick, the Flash from [[AlternateUniverse Earth-2]]. Unfortunately, Jay lost his connection to the Speed Force after passing through the portal, but he has invaluable experience and takes over the mentor role. His new enemy is Jay's EvilCounterpart Zoom, who is obsessed with killing every other speedster in every world to be the only one. There is also a metahuman known as "the Turtle", who is able to slow down everyone around him, which seems like he's super-fast to anyone looking at him. He even manages to sap Barry's power.
* Ricky Fitness of ''TheAquabatsSuperShow'' has this power.

* [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] is canonically faster than Superman, having been blessed with the speed of Mercury, and while he also cannot outrun Flash, he is fast enough to sneak up and grab him if Flash were at rest.

* In ''Anime/{{Charlotte}}'', Joujirou is capable of doing this, though for some reason he calls it "teleportation". Unfortunately he can't stop on a whim, so he often crashes into things as a result, such as buildings.

Unfortunately he He's a somewhat comedic example of what happens when you lack the RequiredSecondaryPowers. He can't stop on a whim, so or change direction once he often crashes gets going--all he can do is aim where he wants to go and shoot himself at the target--so every use of it ends with him violently crashing into things as a result, something. He uses it rather recklessly in attempts at MundaneUtility such as buildings.cutting in line at the cafeteria, and often gives himself AmusingInjuries, though he compensated by buffing up his body for extra toughness and wearing armor concealed under his school uniform.

** Pinkie Pie was in "Party of One" able to follow the flying Rainbow Dash on foot, turning into a blur like she, but that's more of a RuleOfFunny thing. Later on, in "Power Ponies", Pinkie Pie becomes "Filly-Second" in the comic book world, a parody of The Flash, and Rainbow's got nothing on that; Filly-Second's speed is basically infinite for all applicable intents and purposes (like getting cupcakes from 65 blocks away in half a second, which might mean around a hundred times the speed of sound).
