I'm just wondering what super hero you'd pick to win a 100m Dash, and why?

(Trying to see if my pick would beat yours!)

(and yes I'm bored)

Hmm.....

I've got several. Sonic the Hedgehog. The Flash. E-man. Superman (of course). Goku (he can teleport)

Probably Goku (because he can teleport)

I would pick, Night Crawler[...] however we run into a problem....

How do we differentiate start and finish....would we both get 0.0's in the 100? lol

Night crawler takes a brief amout of time to teleport becuase he transitions to an alternate demension through which he moves at obsene speed through. None the less he still takes the smallest amount of time to pass through. Goku on the other hand actually transitions from one place to the other instintaneously and sometimes can appear slightly before he takes off.

I'd guess that it takes about the same time to determine where to teleport as it does for the flash to determine where to run to..... Is there really a place that gives how long it takes to teleport? I'd like to know that answer also. But um... In these comments somewhere, it says that Goku can partially appear in one place before he finishes his teleportation...if so... he really does have us all beat...and I'll put my money on him

I thought about that after I posted haha (I wish there was some kind of editing feature). I'm working under the completely non-evidence based assumption that the act of teleporting involves additional thought (i.e. determining where to materialize). The question now is really how long it takes to teleport and materialize. The answer is probably somewhere on wiki but 30 Rock is on.

Why can't they be thinking about it at the same time the flash is thinking he's gonna take off?

Even if things like teleporting are considered movement, I can't think of anyone who could do so before the Flash had already won. The time it would take to even think about the act of teleporting would already be too long.

But then again....Dash can be defined as "the act of moving with great haste" or "run or move very quickly"

Which means you don't necessarily have to run...

I'd put mine on Mr. Incredible's son or flash (If it came to only picking dashers)
Posted by Maikuru 8 years ago

Okay, seriously now. Focusing on the dash alone and ignoring "outside" abilities like teleportation and mind control, I'd put my money on the Flash or Silver Surfer.

lol It's kinda cheating to use GOD tho! That's like the creator of a game (who posesses all the secrets of how to beat the levels) jumping in a competition of becoming the first to competing the game.
