Boomstick: A long, long time ago, mankind began to walk. Wiz: And then, we ran. And ever since that moment, we’ve been pushing speed to it’s very limit. Or in this case, past the point of absurdity. Boomstick: The Flash, DC Comics’ scarlet speedster. Wiz: And Quicksilver, Marvel’s fast-talking Avenger. Boomstick: He’s Wiz and I’m Boomstick… Wiz: And it’s our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills, to find out who would win….a DEATH BATTLE. Wiz: From Wonder Woman to Superman. There’s no shortage of DC heroes capable of achieving superhuman feats. But only one is synonymous with speed itself. Boomstick: The Flash. Ahhh! Wiz: But before he became the Flash. He was only known as Barry Allen. Boomstick: Like many superheroes. Barry’s lacking in the whole, “living parent” department. Wiz: One day after returning home he discovered his mother had been murdered. And his father had been wrongly convicted of the crime. Boomstick: Knowing dad was innocent. Barry vowed to clear him of the crime and became… A forensic scientist for the Central City Police. Buuut dear old dad died before Barry could set him free. Wiz: Wracked with grief this only strengthened Barry’s resolve to find his mother’s real killer. Boomstick: And on one fateful night: While he was doing some… Sciency stuff, he got struck by lightning. And then fell into some chemicals. Wiz: Now normally this would be incredibly fatal. But since this is comic books. Allen was imbued with the power to move his body at incredible speeds and became the Flash! Boomstick: Ahh! You’re probably thinking “Ok cool, now he’s fast enough to run on water now.” But there’s a whole slew of other benefits that come with this new power! Like accelerated healing, Enhanced strength, The ability to absorb kinetic energy from others, A brain that works faster than a supercomputer. And the ability to throw lightning. Wiz: To do any of this. Flash draws his power from the Speed Force. An extra dimensional energy source which. When synced with a living being’s bio-electric field. Amplifies and destores their perception and placement in individual time. Versus time outside their own field. Boomstick: What? Wiz: Uh, in layman’s terms, it’s kinda like, uh, the Force in Star Wars. But instead of Jedi tapping into it’s powers, it’s comic book speedsters. Boomstick: I see… Wiz: Think of it as it’s own dimension. That the Flash can use as a power source, and also enter on his own whim. Plus, it’s pretty handy for getting the Flash out of jams when an author writes him into a corner. Boomstick: Sure…also, while other speedsters like Max Mercury and Wally West use the Speed Force. Barry is actually the one who generates it! And boy, can he do some ridiculous stuff. Wiz: When push comes to shove, he can easily break the speed of light, over 670 million miles per hour. Boomstick: He once rescued everyone from a collapsing apartment building. Then used the public library to learn everything he needed to rebuild the whole place. And then he did it, all before the cops showed up! Oh, and he can run on clouds. Wiz: Apparently, he does this by vibrating his feet in such a way that the ice crystals within the clouds are collected underneath him to provide footholds, which is an affront to science! Boomstick: Speed Force, Wiz. Wiz: Anyway, his brain is fast enough to perceive events in less then an attosecond. He once called the Justice League supercomputer slow. Which, by the way, processes at one hundred thousand trillion calculations a second. Boomstick: The Speed Force also absorbs damage like a shield, because at this point, what can’t it do? Make waffles? Probably. He was once blown up by enough grenades to send him flying into a tree, breaking it in half. Wiz: To snap a tree like that, requires at least 70,000 pounds of force. Boomstick: Ouch, but he was up and running around in no time, thanks to Speed Force healing. Wiz; Right. Like the time he got stabbed through the leg. but minutes later. stood up and ran fast enough to outrace a nuclear blast, and break the time barrier, yes, I said time barrier. Boomstick: Did you ever hear the phrase, “New 52”? Like, where DC rebooted it’s whole universe and everyone’s backstories? Yeah, Flash….Flash did that…all of it….Batman’s dad told him to. Wiz: You’d think time travel would be an awesome skill to have, but not really in Flash’s case. While well intentioned, his hot headed time hopping adventures usually end up making things worse. Boomstick: Like when he tried to save his mom’s life and ended up ruining the entire universe instead! Professor Zoom (Reverse Flash): Break the sound barrier and there’s a sonic boom. You broke the time barrier, Flash, time boom. Ripples of distortion radiated out through that point of impact, shifting everything just a tiny bit, but enough. Wiz: Also, it is possible for others to disrupt Flash’s connection to the Speed Force, making him lose his abilities. Boomstick: But with fast healing, time travel, extra-dimensional power, he’s done a lot for a guy who can run really fast. Boomstick: An amazing man once said, “To achieve great things, one must sacrifice stability and push one’s limit past sanity.” And few people embody those words better than Quicksilver. Wiz: Wait. Who said that quote? Boomstick: I did, last week when I got my sweet, new dune buggy and jumped that lake! Wiz: No. You just said ‘Hold my beer’ and drove it straight into the water. Boomstick: Wiz, come on, stay on topic, Quicksilver goes fast. Wiz: Uh… Yeah, that’s true, and I guess your fake quote kind of applies because Quicksilver’s life has been anything but stable. I mean, his origin story is absolutely insanely conveluted. I guess that’s what happens when competing movie studios both inadvertently own the rights to the same character. Boomstick: Yeah, don’t worry, I got it. Basically Quicksilver and his twin sister the Scarlet Witch were born Pietro and Wanda to a pair of gypsies named Django and Marya Maximoff. But as babies they were kidnapped by a guy they call the High Evolutionary. He experimented on the two children and then returned them to their parents, only now they had super cool powers. But Pietro and Wanda were later tricked into believing that they were the mutant children of Magneto, abandoned by their mother and handed off to gypsies by a cow lady midwife. Wiz: What the hell!? Boomstick: Y’know, it doesn’t even matter They’re the kids of gypsies and they have super cool powers. Wiz: Well, with all the instability in his personal life, it’s no wonder Pietro Maximoff has been known to bounce from alliance to alliance. Like when Magneto saved him from an angry mob, he joined the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, where Magneto gave him is sleek costume, and his new name: Quicksilver. Boomstick: But, when Magneto got his ass kicked. Quicksilver joined the Avengers. Because what’s loyalty when you can’t even keep track of who your dad is? I wish I at least knew WHERE my dad was, though. Wiz: Probably as far away as possible ….ahem, well, one benefit in all this hopping back and forth across the line in the sand. Is that Quicksilver’s had training and experience from both sides of the spectrum, from the likes of Captain America to Mastermind. Boomstick: But really, when your fast enough to disappear in the blink of an eye, who wouldn’t want you on their team? After all, Quicksilver is all about speed. He can heal fast, Think fast, Learn fast. And of course, run around really friggin’ fast. Wiz: He can run around an opponent so fast, he forms a tornado. Sucking away the oxygen and suffocating them. Boomstick: He can easily run on water, and maintain speeds of more than 700 miles per hour, for extremely long periods of time. And if things are looking serious, he can crank it up even further, and become fast enough to outrun a radio wave. Wiz: Radio waves are a kind of electromagnetic radiation, and thus, travel the same speed as light. Meaning, Quicksilver can run well over 670 million miles per hour. Boomstick: Much like Wiz seeing himself in the mirror every morning, Quicksilver has survived some pretty terrifying things. Wiz: Yeah…hey! He has taken a hit from some of Marvel’s strongest heroes, including Hercules, the god of strength himself. Boomstick: He doesn’t even flinch at the destructive shockwaves made by his own speed. And one time, he ran up a mountain so fast, he accidentally launched himself into an airplane, and fell 39,000 feet, down into the ocean, and survived! Man, that’s crazy to think about. Wiz: Speaking of thinking, his brain can process and retain information so quickly, that he memorized Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” by ear. And could play it himself, in just about a minute. A feat which takes an average person years to perfect. Boomstick; Despite having a taste for calming and refined music, he’s incredibly impatient. And has been known to lash out in anger and annoyance. Wiz: Why does that sound familiar? Boomstick: YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH BEFORE I SHUT IT FOR YOU! Wiz: I rest my case… Quicksilver also has a tendency to run headfirst into danger without thinking things through. Boomstick: Rest your case? I’ll rest your case! Wiz: Alright, just don’t trip on that… Boomstick: (Groans) I hurt my balls…just finish the rundown! Wiz: (chuckling) Well, despite his brashness, Quicksilver is a tragedy hardened speed-freak, who I wouldn’t cross for even a second. Quicksilver: Oh, I get it, your supposed to stop me, well go ahead, try. Next time, try a little harder. Wiz: All Right The Combatants are set! Let’s end this debate once and for all! Boomstick: IT’S TIME FOR A DEATH BATLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Captain America: Please stay calm, miss! I’m coming up there! The Girl: Aaah! Ahhhhh! Captain America: No! The Flash/Quicksilver: I got her! Quicksilver: Wait, who the hell are you? You trying to steal my spotlight? The Flash: “Uh, seriously? Have you been living under a rock? I’m the Flash. All star hero? Fastest man alive? Quicksilver: Fastest? Bullshit, that’s me. Let’s race to Japan! The Flash: Well, what the heck? I’ve got time. Quicksilver: Ok, on the count of three. Three! The Flash: Hey hey hey! Cheap trick pal! Quicksilver: I got another one for you! The Flash: So that’s how we’re gonna do this, huh? Announcer: FIGHT! Quicksilver: Catch ya later! Hmph, what a loser! The Flash: Hey man! Did you miss me? Quicksilver: Too slow! The Flash: Ow! Whooooooa! Quicksilver: How’s it feel to lose, chump? The Flash:Let’s turn this around! Quicksilver: Agh! What? The Flash: Aw crap… Quicksilver: Ahh! God damn it! All right Flash, so you’re fast! But I’m stronger and smarter! The Flash: Prove it, tough guy! Ok, this is getting dumb. Quicksilver: …Flash? The hell? What’s going on? The Flash: You’re in the Speed Force. MY Speed Force. I’m sure you feel it. The raw energy coursing all around you. This is the source of my power. And here… I AM KING! Quicksilver: (screaming) (Continues screaming) The Flash: Eww… Well, at least you beat me here! Bye! Announcer: KO! Boomstick: Flash Fact: Sharp things hurt. Wiz: As fast is Quicksilver is, the Flash is just… MUCH, MUCH faster. Boomstick: Quicksilver clearing the speed of light is great and all. But the Flash has gone ten times that. Wiz: Which would put him at more than 6 billion miles per hour! Boomstick: Plus, Barry can pull people into the Speed Force and fight them there, giving him a homefield advantage. Wiz: In addition, the Flash’s brain can process events in less than an attosecond. And in case you’re wondering, 12 attoseconds is the shortest amount of time humanity has ever been able to measure. This means that while Quicksilver’s Beethoven feat proved he could think over 500 thousand times faster than an ordinary person. The Flash can think many trillion times faster. He had plenty of time to predict every perceivable action Quicksilver may have taken. Boomstick: Quicksilver had the upper hand in formal combat training. But when you’re fighting someone who can move, think, and act WAY faster than you, there’s not really much you can do. You could say this battle was over… in a Flash! Wiz:.. The winner is the Flash.
