No. He's the fastest Arrowverse speedster, but FOX Quicksilver was much faster than them anyway.

Only thing we can say from today's episode is Barry's neuron firing is 5 times faster than season 3 Barry who's neuron firing speed was never stated.

@webinyoureye11: Gotten a crap ton faster after being in the speed force thing for 6 months and some people said Barry challenges FOX QS in speed before this ep so I wondered if anything changed...

@tj849: well tbh, he didn't seem any faster. He was only stated to be. And if you really think about it, he those windmills were spinning even while he was running in slow motion. So based on that, he is even slower than before

No there was no feats to suggest that all we know is he's faster than any of the other CW speedsters

@webinyoureye11: it makes no sense how he could be slower than before, hes ran faster than any other speedster (CW) according to Caitlin in that scene. We'll see some more feats as the season progresses.

@tj849: I'm sure he's faster. But the only scene we can quantify his speed, it's nowhere near his previous best

If Nightmare52 was active we would have known how fast was Barry in today's episode.

Yeah he is faster due to having been in the speed force for so long but he hasn't shown he is as fast as QS just yet.

He's not really consistent enough to know where his speed is at. Dodges lighting in the first season and then gets nailed by Livewire's lighting a couple times in season 2.

Not enough feats to suggest it. The only feat that says so was an outlier and wasnt even a combat feat. Only time can tell.

He could be but then Cisco and Caitlin are going to throw some random Mach number out and it will be slower than Qs even if his feats prove he is faster

@webinyoureye11 Well when he came out of the speed force the first time. He ran around the city faster then ever and it was like REALLY fast. I don't think he is faster. He could be but he is SIGNIFICANTLY faster than last season.

Yes, if it wasn't for the writers randomly deciding to retcon his own feats.

Depends on how you look at it. Barry dodged real lightning in s2 iirc and even perceived the lightning in slow motion. That feat by itself would make Barry faster but the writers don't know science and throw out random numbers. IMO feats over word of god because writers don't science.

His speed wasn't impressive by the show's own standards this episode. What WAS impressive though, was that he casually busted out of the Pipline. There have been a lot of powerful individuals in those cells, from teleporters to speedsters, and nobody has ever escaped. Barry just walked out without even seemingly using his phasing, which those cells prevent anyway.

Savitar ran around so fast that he was everywhere in the city at once.

I think Barry definitively surpassed Savitar by the end of the season, but some people make the claim Savitar was weaker outside of the speed force prison. OK, but Caitlin stated today that Barry was running faster than anyone ever has before.

Being everywhere in the entire city at once is probably faster than Quicksilver effectively being everywhere in the mansion at once.

I believe he was found 300 miles from his current location. He did run really fast, but all his high end feats are constantly contradicted and he isn't fox QS level. He has never seen a hypersonic+ explosion move an inch every second. QS sees explosions slower than Flash sees bullets. QS also saves numerous people in the midst of the explosion.

Not even close quicksilver is so fast it's as time comes to a complete stop when he runs

This one was pretty good, from Flash's perspective, the crashing train, the people, papers and stuff flying around were completely still, looks a lot like QS's and it was only season 1. Still if only they had a semblance of consistency but he's much slower most times, I think his highest end feat was travelling around the world in the three way crossover.

Well I think the question has been answered. While inconsistent at times (was much more consistent in S3) he has feats that put him above Fox Quicksilver in speed.

The issue with the flash is that each episode has a different writer and director.

Like comic books, his feats aren't consistent.

By some feats, he's far faster than Mach 10, yet by statements in other episodes... He is not.

The majority of the audience that watches this show probably doesn't even know how fast lighting or a bullet is. So the statement probably triumphs over the feats... Sadly...

That being said, Fox QS runs casually around an explosion which is easily exploding at Mach 5++

The explosion was mach 5 in speed?
