  • Scan 1: He has the "Speed of a god"
  • Scan 2: He out ran a World Army "helicopter"
  • Scan 3: He can run up walls, super-speed parkour!
  • Scan 4: Saves a couple from a hord of apokorats.
  • Scans 5-6: There's no way of knowing for sure, so I'll just say 15 seconds. In roughly 15 seconds he runs from Lansing Michigan to Silesian Beskids Poland. That's a distance of 4,593.1 miles. So he was running 306.2 miles per second. That's also 18,379.6 miles per minute. That's 1,102,358.3 miles per hour or Mach 1448.6.

Keep in mind all that stuff^ is within minutes of getting his powers.

There's no way of knowing for sure, so I'll just say 15 seconds. In roughly 15 seconds he runs from Lansing Michigan to Silesian Beskids Poland. That's a distance of 4,593.1 miles. So he was running 306.2 miles per second. That's also 18,379.6 miles per minute. And that's 1,102,358.3 miles per hour.

So in other words, roughly Mach 1450.

Awesome stuff. I love his outfit but I kinda wish he'd lose the helmet.

I feel like that "infinity" is going to end up being the speed force.

I like how no one comments for a month, then we both make the same comment within minutes apart.

@monsterstomp: and @allstarsuperman: mach is the speed of sound at sea level which is 760mph or 761mph, 770mph is just the speed of sound at normal temperature.

I like the respect thread and this 'new' jay garrick he is really cool, and i read the part he ran beguier to 'infinity' and am sure that is not his fastest/maximum speed though that may be the fastest he has reached. @arturocalakayvee: high possibility, but only speedforce users should be able to see or 'dumb' people in the speedforce, maybe he was almost teleporting and left her in void/oblivion or 'infinity'.

I would like to see how the meet up between jay and barry would be in this new52(well if they will ever meet).

I love Jay, both pre and post Flashpoint, although I have to say that I love the change in origins. 1940's Jay had the worst origins story in comics that I've ever read (fumes from hard water). 2010's Jay is given an inspirational speech by a dying god in a scene that alludes to great works of art.
