How Fast is the Flash?

How Fast is the Flash?


Hello. I’m Tyler. This is the Imaginary Axis And I can apparently run a mile in roughly seven minutes and eight seconds, despite the fact that I have asthma. But is that impressive? Well, it depends who you ask. I mean I might be kind of fast to some people, but I’m not the Flash. But what if I was? The Flash is a superhero capable of moving at speeds even faster than light. He gets his powers by tapping into the Speed Force, an extradimensional energy that surrounds and encompasses the multiverse. If he can siphon enough of it and manipulate it properly, he can basically control the laws of physics to do whatever he wants. Without damaging himself or the surrounding environment. And it’s a good thing too, because moving at those speeds in real life would be… Dangerous. And impossible. For starters, someone of the Flash’s size and weight would burn over 273 trillion calories running at even half the speed of light. Which means first, he would have to eat four-hundred twenty-one billion Big Macs. Or drink three-hundred sixty billion milkshakes Which, actually, sounds kind of great. But what WOULDN’T be great is the nuclear fusion caused by running at such high speeds. The Flash would be moving so quickly, that the air molecules in his path wouldn’t have time to get out of the way. He would tear apart the surrounding atmosphere, atom by atom. Destroying himself and annihilating everything within miles in an enormous atomic explosion. But see, that’s why he has the Speed Force. The Speed Force protects him from all that and from the Flash’s perspective He’s just having an ordinary jog. Besides, without all the sci-fi, you just can’t get anywhere near the speed of light. Because Energy is Mass Times the speed of light Squared. Meaning the more energy you put into moving something, The more mass it gains. They’re the same thing. And it just makes the object harder and harder to accelerate. In DC comics, the Flash has demonstrated his ability to ignore E equals MC squared With the Speed Force, if need be. But he’s also displayed an ability to work with it: The Infinite Mass Punch. By vibrating his fists near the speed of light, he can increase its mass to that of a white dwarf star before hitting an opponent. A white dwarf can be about 1.4 solar masses. Greater then the combined mass of our entire solar system. So it’s very powerful. And theoretically, he can increase the mass even further if he needed to. But working with physics isn’t the coolest part about being the Flash by a longshot. How fast can he go while bypassing it? Well, you’ll see in this race, the Flash actually manages to outrun the gravitational pull of a black hole, Which even light has never escaped from. There was also that time he and Superman had a casual dinner and full existential conversation In less time than it took their tripping waitress to spill a cup of coffee. He evacuated the entire population five-hundred thousand person population of Chongjin, North Korea In point zero, zero, zero, zero one microseconds. He fought Zoom across every inch of the planet, circling Earth dozens of times at speeds so fast, not even the other superheroes noticed. He outran the concept of Death itself And he can perceive events that happen in less than an attosecond. An attosecond is point Zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero One (That’s 17 zeroes!) Seconds. In one second, light can circle the Earth seven-and-a-half times. In one millionth of a second (microsecond), light can travel the height of Tokyo Tower. But in one attosecond, light barely has enough time to get from one end of a water molecule to the next. If you were immortal, living in this timeframe, you would outlive the entire age of the universe in less time than it takes the average person to blink. But you know what? That still isn’t the fastest the Flash can get. Do you want to know the number? The undeniable cap on DC’s famous speedster? Are ya sure? For that answer, we turn to a title called In this story, it’s revealed that a pair of nigh-omnipotent beings known only as the Cosmic Gamblers exist at the edge of the universe. With their vast power, betting against each other is one of the few things capable of entertaining them And they’ve been forcing the fastest beings in existence to race through time and space so they can place wagers on the outcome. To ensure the speedsters give their all, the penalty for losing is destruction of the loser’s home planet. Naturally, Earth gets caught up in the bet because, well that’s just our luck. And the Flash is nominated to represent us. You would think this is the point where the Flash breaks out his fastest speed ever But no. That comes during a minor pit stop, when he changes the rules on the Cosmic Gamblers. Knowing they can’t turn down a friendly wager, the Flash bets them he can travel back to Earth faster then they can. One of them tells him that’s impossible. They can teleport and you can’t move faster than instantaneous transportation. But the Flash insists on the bet and they accept. Before the race starts, the Flash contacts Earth and tells everyone there to start running. Boys. Girls. Men. Women. Prison inmates. The Justice League. Every needs to make as much kinetic energy as they can And when the signal is given, he taps into more of the Speed Force than ever before. Siphoning all of their kinetic energy, all of his own, every joule he can possibly get. AND THEN…! This happens: He moves at a time interval so small, there exists no word to describe it. For the record, the smallest unit of time that exists is called a Planck Instant. It’s a little difficult to explain, but according to quantum mechanics, this is the smallest amount of time that can exist in our universe. We can say the universe came into existence when it had an age of one Planck Instant. And we measure this time period by seeing how long it takes a photon to cross one Planck length: the smallest distance capable of existing in our universe. But if something managed to cross a distance in a shorter time period than this, We’ve Broken speed. Our theories don’t work at this velocity. The Flash could be anywhere or everywhere at any time or every time. The Flash would be traveling so fast that what he’s doing isn’t even classified as a speed anymore. He’s reached trans-time velocity. To give you a good idea of what I’m talking about Usain Bolt is the fastest human being on record, reaching speeds just below 28 miles per hour. Spiderman has reached speeds over 200 miles per hour. Sonic the Hedgehog’s normal running speed is around Mach 5. That’s five times the speed of sound. Rip Van Winkle’s magic bullets can travel at least Mach 33. Quicksilver once crossed the Earth at Mach 640. Decepticon missiles can go as fast as Mach 1,419. Mega Rayquaza smashed a meteor at Mach 13,815 While Beerus and Goku fought at relativistic speed before a few drops of water could fall to the floor. (here we go) Sora’s Keyblade can shoot beams 3 and a half times the speed of light. Doctor Fate outraced the Big Bang at 100 times the speed of light. The warp drive of the USS Enterprise can move over 1,300 times the speed of light. Iron Man once flew over 111,000 times the speed of light. The Millennium Falcon moves faster than 9 million times the speed of light. The Silver Surfer flies at around 32 million times the speed of light. Superman flew from the edge of the universe at 274 billion times the speed of light. Green Lanterns can travel at 41 trillion times the speed of light. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann can dodge attacks over 7 quadrillion 861 trillion times the speed of light. The alien playing Galaxy Marbles at the end of ‘Men in Black’ must have been moving at least 2 quintillion 932 quadrillion 848 trillion times the speed of light. And…in this scene, The Flash has to be moving a minimum of 23 tredecillion 759 duodecillion 449 undecillion times faster than light. The Flash does win, by the way. Outracing instantaneous travel and saving the Earth. But after a race like that, even he just wants to slow down. So slow down. Relax. Enjoy life. Because it’s going by pretty fast. You don’t want to miss a single of Planck Instant.

    Stop stop stop the flash max speed was with supergirl and that was 62% of light while he said it was 7 mach (mach is the speed of light and idk how much Miles but its over a 1000 And lower than 1500) and light is going So fast like 300000 km in a sec he has never gone that fast its impossible for him to go that fast even with the speedforve he cant handel it idk how superman Did it but he is superman So yea

  • Elmar Zeinalov says:

    Honestly, I hate it how they make these absurdly OP heroes… It almost feels as though each one of them can defeat whoever they want. It's boring in that sense.

  • JoshuaProGamer says:

    He could get a lot faster if he were to go into the speed force and spend a while there soaking up its energy kind of like superman with the sun but instead of getting stronger he's getting faster

  • Shazam can fly and run at at least 133 Billion times the speed of light just saying he can contend with Sups…He cought up to Wally West once…Yes I'm a fan fan boi sue me.

  • Ramon Chito Pudelanan says:

    Barry Allen (Flash in DC) / Burried Allen (Fastfoward in Marvel) already defeated Runner and Makkari on first run in the Galactic Race (See in Marvel"s Quasar # 17 and # 58) but he loses on purpose in middle of the game because he sees that other players (5 players to be exact) is sabotaging the race so he run back and forth to stop them (yet Runner and Makkari didn't notice it)… Even Marvel recognized and admit that Flash is the fastest man alive (comics)…

    The flash: You guys crack me up

  • "The alien playing Galaxy Marbles at the end of 'Men in Black' must have been moving at least 2 quintillion 932 quadrillion 848 trillion times the speed of light." Okay, a question: what is this?

  • Wait wait, you say he's transcended speed, what he's doing doesn't even qualify as speed, then you give his speed? I'm calling bullshit here

  • Roblox_ Gamer_YT_Ireland says:

    The flash can't travel at or faster than the speed of light
    He could travel slower, at or faster than the speed of light
    Only about 1.1 times slower than the speed of light, at the same speed as the speed of light, 1.1 times faster than the speed of light

  • This is such bull shit. Nobody knows what the fastest object or thing is in this world or universe. Do we humans actually think the creator of this universe will give us the answer to this? The creator gave us minds to think and learn but not even us humans know everything. We just live, eat and die. That’s it.

  • @The Imaginary Axis, what would happen if The Flash ran at the speed of light…without his superhero costume on? in fact, why does he need the costume to begin with?

  • Is this Barry? If so Wally can go faster. (White Wally that is.) Wally is the fastest speedster so if u were talking about wally flash i apologize lol.

  • tell no one this. I get super baked and I watch your videos.. and I gotta say.. good job guy. your good at this buddy. anyway, tell yo momma I said hi. I'm out p.s I dont know your mom i dont know why i said that.. it just felt right.

  • And this is the problem with D.C. Comics superheroes. Absurd.

    Marvel was smart enough to make their characters powerful, but limited.

  • No, he’s way faster than infinity as he’s been directly stated to be faster than Superman who’s broken through the speed equation (speed=distance/time) and traveled back in time, which is called immeasurable speed. Now I could also go ahead and say that the DC universe is much much larger and the speed of light is also way faster in DC than in real life (which has been repeatedly proven) but I think you get the picture.

  • The speed of light is not something you can go faster than it by some cosmic force or superpower, it's the maximum speed of existence. if you go that fast the space stops existing and time stops, nothing exists for you anymore, if you go faster than that you would never arrive because time would reverse for you. and even if you can eat the whole galaxy still wouldn't have enough power to go anywhere near light speed

  • You know what's faster than his movements? His brain!While running against the ship that was teleporting, in that fraction he must have thought at least "I need to stop here" or "turn left, turn right, no wait that's Jupiter". So doesn't this make his thinking even faster than himself?
