That isn't even his name. If you look in the trailer, the setting is Brightburn, Kansas.

That feat in that gif isn’t impressive at all in comparison to DCEU Superman. Idk though, maybe he has better feats in the movie.

DCEU Supes made bullet timers look like statues. The feat in that gif isn't even close to that (the kid traveled like a dozen meters in less than a second, that isn't even close to sub-sonic let alone statuing supersonic people).

Probably his best speed scene, but I don't know how to qualify it at all.

Loading Video...

So we can see there was nothing on the window in 0:34, then bam! The woman saw so many BB logos without noticing Brandon in 0:39.

He's fast, but not that fast.

FTE speeds, but nothing involving reacting time.

That’s about what Harry did in Spider-Man 3 but a bit better, so I’d say no.

@balancedtruth: *nose starts bleeding*

So all of a sudden DCEU Supes is beyond light speed coz he can outpace Wonder Woman and Flash, even though the latter is equal to him in terms of speed. Wow.

There's two specific unquantifiable speed feats in Brightburn where Brandon is able to "poof" himself from the forest his dad hunts in / his family camps and the rest of the town.

The most impressive of the two being after Brandon was shot in the head. The boy in a split second disappears from the shooter's eyesight, goes back to his home to get his "superman" costume and reappears infront of his father in full costume.

The other was Brandon stalking a girl in her room, leaving his family's campsite 30 some odd miles away, to repeatedly open up her laptop to play a love song. While she spots him behind the curtain staring at her, the next moment after his mom had began shouting his name he was back at the same campsite.

Now Superman himself has a better "poof" feats, but his are because Zack Snyder has no concept of how big the world is when he has Superman "pop" back in Metropolis from half way around the world and when he also just "pops" up to prevent Lois from falling off a random building somewhere in the city in BVS.

But, again, Superman's "pop" feats are just him doing things he can't do, either because he's not actually that fast (his world-engine to Metropolis teleport feat is way better than anything he's ever done after or before) or just impossible (as in finding Lois falling from a random building after talking to his ghost dad on a mountain). Otherwise he would have been able to clean out that court house as the chair exploded, rather than watch them all die around him.

Brightburn's Breyer at his best is functionally as fast as he is, Superman is not by any measure.

What he did there doesn't compare to Superman doing near the same to Wonder Woman.

@isaac_clarke: Superman's feat is very consistent throughout MoS

  • Flew to mexico to save a girl from a burning building right after he just heard the news.
  • Flew from the Canadian Arctic to the African Savannas in a few seconds.

Then we saw Zod bullrushing Superman to orbit in less than 4 seconds. Superman also easily flew from US to Russia though we don't know how fast it was.

Otherwise he would have been able to clean out that court house as the chair exploded, rather than watch them all die around him.

That would be FOX Quicksilver level shit, obviously he's not that fast. It's likelier that he simply wasn't experienced enough to use his speed that way in this specific instance.

Yeah the issue with characters who have super speed is they need to be aware that something is taking place or is about to take place. Clark let his guard down during the Senate trial, something he lamented when talking to Lois on her balcony.

That stated, in no way is Brandon faster than Supes. He's not faster than Diana or Billy/ Darla either.

You're taking for granted the power of CUTS in action scenes to over-sell his flying of Zod into orbit.

If Superman was fast enough to be anywhere in the world in seconds, as you're suggesting, then he can easily empty the building of people as the explosion happens or just fly the explosive out of the ceiling since he's already there as it goes off. I mean hell, he could easily speed-blitz Snyder's Flash in these movies whose no where near that speed and the rest of the JL.

Functionally, Superman ISN'T that fast though.

You're acting like Superman wasn't immediately aware of the bomb going off when he turns his head right to it just before the explosion. He's obviously aware something is happening with that chair and its beyond clear he's no-where near fast to react to it.

While we fudge the numbers and say this version of Superman can fly really fast or bullrush someone at high speeds - his functional super-speed is not at the same level and consistently never reaches that level.

Brandon Beyer is functionally is as fast as he is. According to his dad in a scene of the movie, where this family hunts and camps, is over 30 miles away from where folks in this town live. Brandon's covering these distances within a blink of an eye he reappears decked out in his outfit. The credits of this movie then consists of him going around the world dropping buildings and so on, with no one having idea what is crashing into this stuff at high-speed.

Superman by comparison is only causinf sonic booms when he's flying place to place. I know folks like to pretent him and Zod where perpetually causing that stuff with their fists (but a TON of folks do the whole shock-wave thing in film at sub sonic speeds...) but that's just not what happens.

I'm not... This is proven by BvS' opening scene. Clearly Snyder made them that fast on purpose. The feat you're trying to disprove also makes his intentions even clearer.

I mean, this makes it seem like I'm making unreasonable claims, where I simply recalled what happened in the movie :/

You've said this in your first post already, bro. I've given my thoughts on it.

I mean hell, he could easily speed-blitz Snyder's Flash in these movies whose no where near that speed and the rest of the JL.

How do you know Flash isn't that fast? He was clearly very fast, but just very inexperienced. He doesn't have anti-feats either, just very sloppy.

Functionally, Superman ISN'T that fast though.

Well, a running Flash implied to be as fast or even faster than Superman's flight. And we saw in JL that Superman is capable of perceiving a running Flash, so... At least we know JL version is also meant to be functionally fast, by feats.

He wasn't aware hence his dialogue with lois. The people who were aware that something was really wrong were Senator Finch and Mercy. Supes was wondering why Senator finch looked panicked. That did not make him aware of an explosive device that was incased in lead.

Wait so supes creating sonic booms is a testament to how equal in speed Brandon is to him? Come on bro.
