I read that as him refering to Barry once I read the whole thing. Think about it the mission was to retrieve Barry so he could help the Legion in the future so it makes sense at that point it was an allusion that they got the speedster who is faster (or something along those lines).

I can't see KK trying to say he's faster than a speedster when he's placed so much importance on the mission (aka Barry)

Read it again. After Wally says "I'm faster than anyone" Val gets up out of the rubble and says "No, you're not". You'll note that Val is alive, in one piece and not fried. He's implying that he's faster because he got out of the way of a direct hit by the lightning. This is backed up by the second to last page of the issue when the "mystery person" asks Val "How'd you not got fried by the lighting?" and Val responds "I ducked." He doesn't mean he's faster in a foot race or anything like that, he means that he's "faster" (at that instant) because he got out of the way of the lightning.

"Probably the most famous speech from the GREEN LANTERN/GREEN ARROW story is the black guy coming up to Green Lantern and saying 'You helped the green guys, you helped the purple guys, you helped the blue guys. What have you done for the black guys?' And my answer would have been, I saved the world 15,000 times, duh. I didn't go out to save the white guys, I saved the world. So get off my back."
