Vulture may not be faster on his legs but rather depends on his wings.

Known by Adrian Toomes, Vulture’s wings allow him to fly higher and a lot faster than any birds.

Momentarily it’s quite challenging to select faster MCU character between Vulture and Falcon as both rely on wings.

MCU Adrian Toomes made his Vulture suit with the technology of Chitauri.

Furthermore, it has inbuilt “Jet Propulsion Systems” that boost his speed at maximum level and could attain a maximum height of 11,000.


Ariana Saddiqi aka Black Racer

Ariana Saddiqi aka Black Racer was a Member of fourth Serpent Squad.

Introduced in “Captain America #33” as a supervillain, Ariana possesses super-speed ability.

She can run at an incredibly super speed. Hence capable of attacking multiple opponents at once.

The reason behind Black Racer’s super-speed is her strength. She got super-human strength in her legs that allows her to run faster.

In Marvel Comic issue “Quasar #17“, the Runner organized a race.

Everyone from superheroes to villains who had the power to run at immense speed participated in the race.

However, sadly enough, Black Racer outmatched in early in the race.

Spitfire, also known by Lady Jacqueline Falsworth Crichton, is a superheroine with the ability to run at super lightning speeds.

Furthermore, Jacqueline’s body granted with hardened skin that can withstand the rigours of super speed.


Vision fastest avenger

Created by Ultron, Vision possesses many superhuman abilities, and the flight is one of them.

Vision is capable of flying at a much faster rate.

The humanoid android has precise control of his air movement that allows him to fly at high speeds.



One of the infamous foes of Thor, Hela first entered in Journey into Mystery #102.

She is the Asgardian goddess of death.

Thus, Hela possesses all typical Asgardian abilities.

Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Master noted Hela top-notch speed whic


Jeanne-Marie Beaubier as Aurora

Jeanne-Marie Beaubier is Canadian superheroine famously known as Aurora.

What’s surprising is that she is Northstar’s twin sister.

So, undoubtedly, Aurora possesses powers flight as well as non-human speed.

However, she uses her ability differently.

Aurora propels her body at superhuman speed like a projectile.

According to WIKIPEDIA, Aurora theoretically runs at a speed of light meaning 186,272 miles per second in a vacuum.

Though even she can run at this speed, she won’t.

Its because this maximum speed would create a huge disaster that could break Earth’s gravitational forces.

However, practically Aurora can move at a speed of sound worth of 770 miles per hour at sea level.


Jeffrey Walters as Blue

Jeff Walters is the stranded character from demolished Earth-148611.

After he survived the destruction of his universe, Jeff founded on Earth-616.

To resurrect his family, he joined New Squadron Supreme along with other lost heroes.

Goes by heroic codename Blue, Jeff can run as fast as 300mph.

With this incredible superhuman speed, Blur proved himself to keep up his pace with Quicksilver and Squadron Supreme Vol 4 #3 just showed it.



Hercules is the King of the Olympian gods who possess extraordinary superhuman strength that could rival the strongest Marvel characters likes of Thor.

His super strong legs allow him to run way faster than you think.

Thor #126 proves that Hercules can achieve the speed of over 100 mph.


the Whizzer Marvel's fastest character

Probably most of the people don’t know about this guy. Marvel’s the Whizzer known by Robert Frank has been in the Marvel comic book for nearly 70 years since his creation.

If I talked about his origin and how he gets his superhuman ability, then let’s take a look. Once Robert went on an expedition with his father Dr. Emil Frank where Robert was bitten by a cobra.

But nowhere from sudden Mongoose appears and Dr. Frank recalled an old wives’ tale about him. He injected Mongoose’s blood into Robert’s vein which somehow recovered him. Due to Mongoose’s mutant blood reaction with him, Robert had developed the ability to move at superhuman speed.

In his unexhausted condition, the Whizzer can move at a superhuman speed up to 100 miles per hour for an hour only until his fatigue impaired his performance.

Because of this ability, his thinking capacity also increased about four times faster than an average human being thus making him his brain just as fast as quick-thinking.


3D man Marvel

3-D Man is Marvel’s first superhero which is composite of two brothers, Charles & Hal Chandler.

Due to an explosion of Skrull saucer, Chuck flew exposed to external radiation. It caused his image to imprint on Hal’s glasses.

When Hal’s wore the glasses and concentrates on it, Chuck materializes into a three-dimensional existence and becomes 3-D Man.

Chuck gained an ability that tripped his ordinary human skills.

According to FANDOM, 3-D Man has marked his top speed as 105 miles per hour.


Samuel Thomas Wilson as Falcon

Samuel Thomas Wilson is a Marvel’s one of famous superheroes goes by name “Falcon.”

He has mechanical wings to fly that allows him to fly at speeds up to 250 mph.

In the comic, Black Panther improvised Falcon’s suit by including holographic “hard light” wings that create maximum wingspan of up to 50 feet.

On the other hand, MCU Falcon uses a winged jetpack that allows him to attain subsonic speed.

So in conclusion, when it comes to flying speed, Falcon would be the winner against Vulture.

In the Marvel’s TV series Agent of SHIELD, her counterpart character Alena went through terrigenesis experiment which grants her the ability of super-speed. Live-Action Yo-Yo can run at speed of 300 miles per hour.

Another element to Elena’s ability is that she can run in time during the period of her one heartbeat.

As the heartbeat is complete she automatically returns to the same place where she started.

In the comics, Slingshot can snap from one place to another in a blink an eye. But like I said before after she exhausts her powers, she automatically returns to where she started.


war machine fastest mcu character

Same as Iron Man, War Machine also has inbuilt flight ability to fly at a faster rate.

It has the repulsor booster that speeds him up to the Mach 3 same as Tony’s several Armors.

However, War Machine solely made for battle purposes, which incredible offensive as well as defensive gadgets.

Hence, even though War Machine called as physically most durable Armor, still it may loose to Iron Man in a one-on-one dual race.


Iron man fastest marvel character

It’s obvious why Tony Stark is one of the fastest Marvel characters.

With the help of Iron Armor, Tony can flight at a much faster rate.

By properly channeling the Nova Force, Richard Rider can travel faster than the speed of light. Nova is capable of making Star Gates to quickly travel long distances in space.

He was successful in becoming faster than ever but as a side effect, Makkari has to cost many of his powers like flight, matter manipulation, project energy blast, teleport, etc.

His obsession leads him to damage his own health and stamina. But he was not a fool enough to let it happen.

After Sprite’s treachery, Makkari regained his original Eternal abilities which were not limited to speed alone. Hence, this is no longer appears to be Makkari’s weakness.
