Deathstroke wins. He's tagged the Flash before.

I would pick Deathstroke both times, even though in Round 2 he should get logically beaten.

If he's tagged the Flash, Quicksilver would be even easier.

He tagged the Flash due to certain circumstances, one of them being that Flash wasn't moving faster than Deathstroke could react, another being that he prepped for him, and the other being that Flash wasn't paying attention when he was shot him with the blasting staff (and later ended of tripping over his staff because he was still dazed from the attack). It's not like he can hit the Flash if he's moving several times faster than sound or at light speed.

I'll give DS round one, but he loses round two (especially if Quicksilver's going all out).

You made him sound like he's supposed to be Midnighter. When has Quicksilver done this?

I hope people aren't using that as the basis of their argument. Not saying that Quicksilver is faster than the Flash, but it seems as if people aren't considering the actual reason as to why Deathstroke is able to tag the Flash, albeit not considering that Flash could beat Deathstroke if he really wanted to.

Even then, tagging someone who's coming in at the speed of sound should be child's play for Slade.

But, would be quite an adventure for someone who moves many times faster than sound. The Flash can easily achieve that, not to mention Quicksilver.  

Anyway, Slade tagging anyone at Mach 1 is weird, when street-levelers consistently tag Slade. Something is wrong with that.

I wasn't aware that Pietro moves a lot faster than the speed of sound.

quicksilver can reach the Mach 5. Quicksilver wins this easily before opponent can see him coming.

I guess you've missed virtually all of Slade's high-end reaction feats (particularly in his performances against Wally West)

Wally West never used the high-ends of his speed against Deathstroke. So, it doesn't even matter.

Even at that, Bart Allen still blitzed Deathstroke and managed to get caught in the process.

So is it safe to say that if street levelers are tagging Slade, then Quicksilver can tag him as well?

There are still a few more examples of Slade countering speed blitzes faster than that of Pietro, even without prep being a factor.

Because Bart wasn't moving at speeds that would be considered at the high-ends of his ability to move at superhuman speed.

Yet, Slade hasn't shown to out-react anyone that was moving faster than sound or greater in any of those examples.

Hasn't Slade easily evaded Starfire's bolts before (I'm pretty sure that they're at least Mach 1)?

Quicksilver is Mach 5, and possibly greater. So, the starbolts don't tell me much. Not to mention that Quicksilver has recently dodged lightning from the sky, which was also channeled through Thor's hammer in Mighty Avengers #34. Lightning is faster than sound.

I've actually heard some people say that the starbolts are faster than the speed of sound, but I'm not positive.

Well, I'm leaning towards simply agreeing to disagree in this thread. I've always felt that Slade's speed/reaction abilities have been pretty consistent through the years, but all of your points are still valid.

Slade's reaction time is consistent. But, people have to understand that the Flash doesn't utilize his higher-end speeds unless the situation calls for it (like the time Bart had to break light speed to out-run the blast of a photon cannon, or the time Wally had to fight Zoom at a speed that made time appear to stop, or the time he had to move at near light-speeds to save everyone in a city in Asia from a nuclear explosion). Other than fighting people like Zoom, or being in situation that required desperation, Flash doesn't move at these speeds because he doesn't need to. No writer would ever allow Deathstroke to tag Flash at those speeds, either. Quicksilver is used in the very same manner, but since he's allowed to kill and go all-out here, there isn't a reason as to why he wouldn't be able take out Deathstroke with ease, especially if he's able to move from Tibet to Indonesia and back in a few seconds.

I vaguely recall a scene from Loeb's 90's X-Force where Quicksilver sword fights Shatterstar to a standstill. I'm not sure what that means here, but I think it's relevant.

He lost that power, and gained his superhuman speed back in X-Factor.

If someone would display Quicksilver doing creative feats with his speed, I would give round 2 to him. As of now I don't believe he's a good enough fighter to win.

I feel like Quicksilver is a character who never utilizes his power to the fullest because of his personality. Even in Round 2, when he should logically win by virtue of his speed, he'll give Deathstroke opportunities to take him out because he's sloppy and undisciplined. If it was just the power-sets, I pick Quicksilver's in Round 2 every time.

@Static Shock: I have no idea who Midnighter is lol but i thought all speedsters could process info much faster than most people. But i've seen Quicksilver understand entire books in seconds. input hundreds of pass codes in seconds. he has to see, hear, react and process his surroundings when moving at super speeds. speedsters just move and think faster than most people. IMO
