    Please reread my comment: JUST AFTER The Crisis on Infinite Earths.

My apologies. \:\)

    For a time after the Crisis, Wally was not quite up to Barry's power levels as I recall. Eventually he got to Barry's levels then comes the speed force, etc etc and Wally is now at least as fast as Barry was if not faster....though HOW one can be faster then someone who can run fast enough to breach time and space.....but I digress....


    So if Wally raced Superman just AFTER the Crisis had ended and the dust settled from the reboot, Superman would win hands down.

Yes, just after. ;\)

But they did race afterwards once Wally became faster (much faster) and Wally won. \:\)

    Once Wally was one with the speed force and all that, then he'd leave Superman eating dust.

Hmm, not really. In the race I am thinking of, Superman was right behind him by mere seconds. Wally didn't win by much. And this was after Wally had become one with the Speed Force and gained new powers.

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?
