@segamarvel: yea science says a normal human would only have to run at about 60 mph to run on water

@musa56: At least his bouncing speed. His running speed would be lower.

Admitting that he's 200 times stronger than a normal guy (enabling him to lift about 15 tons), which speed could he achieve regarding his strength ?

@skyleat: he can lift 20 tons dude. no offense for the strength . but yah his bouncing speed is faster than his running.

Im not able to post scans.But from readingcomic books, playing the games, watching the movies, and being a general fan for over 23 years(Im 33), I can tell you he is fast enough to dodge an entire clip of semi-to automatic gunfire,making fun of the guy trying to tag him, right out in the open while simultaneously punching him in the head just hard enough so that it doesnt explode while webbing him up for the police w/ the other hand nonchalantly.

Doesnt sound too impressive with the way some folk build up their fave characters on here sometimes, but if you let that process for a minute,,, you'll think "Whoa!"lol

@musa56: Yeah I know he can lift far more than that but I set 15 as a minimum to see how fast he could go at least.

Pete can go as fast as quick silver can run if he relies on his inner instincts, which have been proven magical, meaning Spidey literally has no limit in physical performance.

I think we're misreading that scan. Now I could be wrong but when the scans says 5 seconds, 2 miles it means 5 seconds, 2 miles away from Spider-man's current location. Unlike DC, Marvel keeps super-speed pretty limited in city area, mostly because the damage a sonic boom would do to the surrounding area.

I'm cool with him running near or over 100mph but twice the speed of sound is pushing the limits here. That speed at that time made him faster then Quicksilver and most of Marvel's top fliers.

He's dodged light before (if you want scans google it, I'm on my phone for a while)

Laser/Energy beam? He a precogs with amazing reaction time, so that's not something I would question. Hell, I'm sure there pics of Wolverine, Batman and Cap doing the samething.

What I'm questioning is this moving twice the speed of sound over New York roof times.

@lord_shiva: He's covered miles in seconds before. He's also outpaced handgun bullets while webswinging. They're outlier feats, but he's replicated them.

he is supposed to be able to run over 200 miles an hour. however, i haven't seen him do anything that rivaled his asm 2 counterpart. movie spiderman actually out paced electricity. he didn't just aim dodge. he actually saved several people and stopped a car before the electricity even moved up a railing. that is just crazy fast.

Travel speed. I'd say it has something to do with his strength and his weight, after that comes endurance. Don't know the exact number since I've been drifting in and out since one more day.

Reflex is how fast the communication from your brain to your body.

Speed is how fast you can move your body.

The comic said "5 sec and 2 miles LATER" not away...

Faster than Cap for sure. I'd say Spider-Man's maximum speed is around 200 mph.

It depends really.

He goes from dodging multiple lasers from multiple angles to getting tagged by Chameleon or Kingpin.

So he would leap up to 89 m, run up to 448 km/h - 720 mph, and lift 13 tons while sticking to the ceiling. Wow.

I cant help but want to chim in here again to state my thoughts on this.

Spiders (depending on the species) have run at speeds that range from 33 to 48 times their body length per second. Peter is 5foot10inches tall so since he is constantly boasting about having the proportionate speed and strength of a spider Peter should be able to move at these speeds which for his size ranges at about 130 to 190 mph. I don't know about you guys but I see no reason to argue with that logic since there is no reason for spidey to be slower than his namesake. Heck he maybe even faster than that. The guys strength is already blown out of proportion for a spider so why shouldn't he be at least as fast if not faster than any spider? His speed/reflexes are stated to be 15x faster than the average joe (average healthy humans should be able to easily run 10 to 15 mph) so that should mean Peter can plausibly move at at least 150 to 225 mph. Now THATS fast and awesome. I'd even consider him a borderline speedster or a low level speedster given the crazy feats he has shown.

You're doing that math wrong. You said some spiders can run at 33 to 48 times their body length per SECOND. Then you did the math and gave us a per mile rate for Spider-Man. The actual math would be 70 inches times 48 per second. So he'd be able to go 3,360 feet per second. That translates to 201,600 feet per minute, and 12,096,000 feet per hour. 2,419 miles per hour would be his speed. So, he'd be able to dodge most bullets, but if he were to try and race someone like say Quicksilver it wouldn't end well for Spidey.

For Travel Speed: Spider-Man should be able to run at 200 mph on foot, but when he's Web Swinging he probably travels a lot faster, maybe close to the Speed Of Sound.

For Combat Speed/Reaction Speed: Spider-Man's feats are insane in terms of reaction & combat speed, like the dude can dodge normal pistol gunshots, automatic firearm gunfire, machine gun gunfire and sniper rifle gunshots (at close range I might add) after they've been fired. Being able, to consistently dodge Electro's lightning blasts whenever they fight each other, reacting in under a microsecond and he has even demonstrated the capability of dodging THE SPEED OF LIGHT, not only ONCE, but TWICE!

@fromapov: unless it's aim dodging, dodging the speed of light is a massive outlier.

@thiagl156: Tbh, I agree, dodging the speed of light would be pretty unrealistic for him even with Spider Sense, but I do believe that he is at least a lightning timer, because he has demonstrated it several times in the comics when he fights Electro, that he can dodge/evade his lightning blasts, well except for that one time after he met Silk/Cindy Moon, but I think it was just Dan Slott being Dan Slott, as always.

@fromapov: WITH Spider-Sense, yeah, he's close to being a lightning timer. And the whole Silk arc was so dumb I want to forget that character existed. The excuse Slott came with up for her being such a good fighter was that she had watched tapes of Peter fighting, not only that, but adding a massive plot armor in every tiny bit of her character and nerfing Peter to a fodder against Black Cat and Electro when he has beat groups of villains far more dangerous.

At least that a-hole isn't writing Spider-Man comic books anymore.
