* ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'': ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} already displays this power in the first chapter when she travels to the future by flying faster than light.
-->Within five seconds, she performed her ablutions in the bathroom, did her hair and makeup, zipped on deodorant and a mild perfume, threw on her Supergirl uniform, and was out of the building at super-speed.\\
The air friction formed a corona of fire around her as she streaked invisibly through the skies. She ignored it.\\
Supergirl burst out of the ionosphere, vibrating at a certain frequency, still accelerating. An IFF device in her belt identified her to American and Russian radar trackers as the Girl of Steel, not an ICBM. They only registered her for a few seconds, anyway.\\
The reaches of near-space gave way to the unsettling kaleidoscope of time-flux. It wasn't that hard to do, Kara reflected, if you knew how and had enough power and speed to do it Superman had had to drill her for a week before she could pop out with pinpoint accuracy at a targeted time.\\
A subseries of flight ring pulses signalled to her the date and time from which the alert was being sent. She rocketed on, well past the speed of light.\\
[...]\\
The red-caped woman sighed without breath, reduced velocity to Mach 12, and sped into the atmosphere.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'': Italy has this. Let's just say the only way Germany and Japan were able to catch him in a chase was to trick him into going back to them.

** In another Bronze Age story -''Comicbook/KryptoniteNevermore''-, Superman loses most of their power. However, even when weakened, Superman can run so fast that he doesn't sink. After getting his powers back, he tests his speed by flying across space:

** As of ''Siege'', Quicksilver is comfortably moving at FTL speeds (outrunning radio signals). And more recently, it was confirmed in-universe that he can run faster than the speed of light (meaning he can now more or less catch up to the Flash)

*** In ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', he does it again, allowing him to save dozens of people from an explosion that's already happened by tossing them out of the blast radius (and setting up cushions for their falls) in a matter of ''nanoseconds''. [[spoiler:Then he uses it to beat the crap out of ''[[BigBad Apocalypse himself]]'', until the latter uses some of [[SuperpowerLottery his many powers]] to alter his own perception of time to keep up and lays a quicksand trap under Quicksilver's foot.]]]

** He's not the only one, either. Jet aka 002 also had it (though it's not his ''main'' skill), and IIRC several enemies had that same skill too (MagnificentBastard Vog Bogoot and BloodKnight Cain among them)

** An example of Speed's speed, he ran from New York to Genosha (off the coast of Africa IIRC) before Wiccan could teleport there. He also searched the entire place in the time he spent waiting for Wiccan's near instantaneous teleport. As Wiccan put it "Um, Tommy, how fast are you exactly?"

*** And now Earth-19's Accelerated Man joins the growing list of speedsters in the Arrowverse with his purple lightning, bringing the total count to 9: Flash (Barry), Reverse-Flash, Zoom, Velocity, Flash (Jay), Jesse Quick, Kid Flash, Savitar ([[spoiler:Barry's time remnant from the future in a fancy suit]]), Accelerated Man. H.R. also mentions his world's Flash. It's never made clear if the Flash of Earht-19 is the same person as the Accelerated Man or a different speedster.
