@pooty: the runner can run many many many many times the speed of light. he is arguably the fastest character in marvel universe. you know they have not really explore on this character. if he is consistent in comics, he will be the faster character in both marvel and dc comics. The Runner's greatest power is his unparalleled speed. He is easily able to travel at and far exceed the speed of light. He has proven himself to be greatly faster than even the Silver Surfer. The Runner is arguably the fastest living being in all of the known galaxies. i just wish they explore on this speed star. silver surfer had no chance on this guy. he blitz silver surfer like nothing. zoom as never face one like this character before.
I believe that. but can't prove it. in fact his own statements show otherwise. scans below. he was faster then Surfer. But how fast was Surfer going? We don't know. So we can't say for sure that Runner was even going at light speed. these scans below show Runner WITH the space gem. he even says himself that he is not faster then light. not even as fast as thought. that said, he DOES have feats that imply being multiple times faster then light.... sadly no CONFIRMED evidence.
Zoom is one of the most overrated characters. The only reason why he is hyped up here is because of fanboys saying he has control over the entire timestream. If that was so, why did he get KOed by a pipe or predicted by Wonder Woman then subsequently KOed? I've seen scans contradicting his feats, such as Wonder Woman stating he is about lightspeed. That isn't enough to beat The Runner or even a top-tier Flash like Wally West. These guys are faster than Zoom by far.
Zoom at max potential (no jobbing or PIS) is untaggable. Runner may win a fight, but he wont be able to tag Zoom in a speed contest. Zoom would run circles around him so fast that Runner wouldn't even know he was there, and this would be while Runner was moving at max speed.

@willpayton: Makkari did indeed beat "The Runner" in a race, but it seemed he took him by surprise imo, plus Makkari is clearly not used to moving at such speeds and the amount of concentration it took him to achieve this feat makes it obvious he would not be able to pull this feat off in combat, during this race Makkari hit Absolute Speed which is apparently the speed limit in Marvel where you get trapped in a Speed Loop or something, The Runner being aware or this and capable of moving at said speed himself helped Makkari out of it since he was incapable out getting out himself.
As for the fight "The Runner" should take this, as of true Marvel fashion he is
DCs Zooms Superior in every way.
I'd say Zoom would have a strong chance of outrunning Runner. The Flash with the added speed of other Flashes could still only barely detect Zoom, but still couldn't tag him. We're talking an amp'd Wally. And Wally is the fastest Flash there is. And Zoom was still radically faster.
