    Barry's speed lets him travel in time and cross dimensions, ergo he should be the winner

Agreed, Barry should win. \:\)


    If this were Wally West just after the Crisis on Infinite Earths then I would say Supergirl or Superman would be faster.

You don't know Wally very well, do you? Prior to Flash: Rebirth it was established that Wally had not only surpassed Barry's achievements but was also faster than Barry. It was also established that Wally was most definitely faster than Superman. But then Flash: Rebirth came along and a new status quo was started where Barry was the faster of the two.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
