And before anyone says anything the reason Oliver is higher than the super soldiers is because he has arrows. So no debating whether or not he is faster than the super soldiers or whatever. If Thanos is shot 10 times with arrows he loses.

Potentially stops at 5, don’t know 8, so true-stop at 9.

Lol, why does the list go so far? Who's gonna argue that? Who TF would argue MCU Thanos, or any Thanos, being nearly as fast in combat as the last 4....

@cromulor: he's not faster than wonder woman or Darla who makes time crawl with her speed

Could stop at 5, likely stops at 7 or 8, hard stop at 9.

@ancient_0f_days: Like I said, I don’t know shit about Darla, so I wasn’t debating it. And, you’re assuming an in-character DCEU Wonder Woman would avoid getting tagged by Thanos. He doesn’t need to be faster thanks to those conditions.

@ancient_0f_days: I guess the last 4 are there to show who's the wankers/fanboys.

Honestly... 1. Batman has an absolutely insane skill edge on Thanos and probably as good if not better speed feats

Edit: Didn't realize it was DCEU Batman nvm

I'd say there's absolutely a hard stop at 7. Wonder Woman doesn't need Superman's speed to land ten taps of her sword inside Thanos' guard. Clark can be faster all day but he's sloppy and goes for big slams which leaves him open to Thanos countering a single hit before Clark gets to ten. 6 is hard to gauge because he's got few combat feats and he's very inexperienced.

5 and 6 are going to have a hard time due to inexperience. Both characters should be able to do it with training but have never shown sufficient repetition in CQC with speed.

@jashro44:

1. Clears

2. Clears

3. Clears

4. May stop here, Thanos has the feats to swat away arrows easily but Ollie is obviously above a fodder archer

5. Stops here likely, has a chance of passing due to skill

6. Clears (?)

7.Clears if she fights like she did against Steppenwolf / Doomsday, Stops if she fights like at the Bank

8.Stops

9. Statued

10. Statued

Stops at 5, Thanos doesn't have any feats that puts his combat speed above supersonic.
