Source/Explanation
Hiro tells Ando that "with super speed, [Daphne] is the world's greatest thief" (The Butterfly Effect). Edgar's list also explicitly names the ability.

Exert greater force?

  • Exerting greater force wouldn't make you run faster. It would make you jump higher. At best, it could give you some kind of gigantic stride, but it's not gonna help you run up walls.--Hardvice (talk) 16:06, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

Super speed

  • The power the agent exhibits is super speed. Common names come before descriptive names. Therefore we HAVE to change it. It is all in the power naming convention. Am I wrong? *eats pie to cope with Heroes withdrawal* Jason Garrick 16:30, 16 December 2007 (EST)
    • I'm not sure where they "enhanced speed" and "enhanced strength" are not common names comes from. I think it is, as "Hippolyta" and "Ant" both use "enhanced" instead of "super".--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:52, 16 December 2007 (EST)
      • It's all the same to me. And judging from the general disdain the community has towards power name changes at the moment, I'd rather not stir up anything for what I consider to be an even trade. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:54, 16 December 2007 (EST)
        • That doesn't make any sense. If Jason can show evidence that "super speed" is a common name and "enhanced speed" is not, then I think we should change it. That said, I don't think this is the case so it should stay the same.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:00, 16 December 2007 (EST)
          • Well, common or not, doesn't it make sense to change all "Enhanced"'s to "Super" to keep up with Super Strength, since Super Strength is canon?--Riddler 17:03, 16 December 2007 (EST)
          • That's my point. I don't see any evidence to prefer one name over the other, or more specifically, that one name is "more common" than the other. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:03, 16 December 2007 (EST)
            • Ok, then I've changed the level to "common names for abilities", end of story?--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:13, 16 December 2007 (EST)
              • I'm glad you said that. I shall give you proof! First off, go to any comic book store in the world, they will tell you the name is super speed. Obviously that is not my evidence. But! Grand jury if you'll turn your attention to exhibit A!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_%28comics%29 Once nicknamed the Scarlet Speedster, the Flash possesses "super-speed," which includes the ability to run and move extremely fast, use superhuman reflexes and violate certain laws of physics. Thus far, four different characters, each of whom somehow gained the power of "super-speed", have assumed the identity of the Flash: Jay Garrick (1940-), Barry Allen (1956-1986), Wally West (1986-2006, 2007-), and Bart Allen (2006-2007).

Among the other information provided on that wikipedia page there is other evidence directly leading to Super speed.

http://www.marvel.com/universe/Speed

This is a link to a page on MARVEL COMICS . com. It is about a character in the Young Avengers named Speed with the power of super speed. The marvel.com people say that his power is super speed!

http://www.marvel.com/universe/Quicksilver

This is another marvel.com link to a more well known super hero also stating the word super speed.

The following links are other links that you can enjoy looking at that all explicitly state super speed.

In the DC and Marvel encyclopedias they state that the speedsters have SUPER speed.

That's the proof. And there is more where that came from. Super speed is clearly the common name. Jason Garrick 18:19, 16 December 2007 (EST)

  • No, super speed is clearly a common name for the power--not necessarily the common name.--Hardvice (talk) 19:24, 16 December 2007 (EST)
    • There shouldn't really be an argument though... if The Flash and even Superman have it as "Super Speed", that should classify it THE. In any case, we should keep it SUPER speed to match Super Strength and switch hearing and memory as well.--Riddler 20:07, 16 December 2007 (EST)
      • See, that's the part I object to. I don't think we need to be slavishly consistent, and that if we are, we're in for trouble when we have conflicting canon sources. What happens when we change everything to "super" and then we get a canon source for "enhanced memory"? Do we change everything back? Do we change half of them back? Do we ignore the canon mention of "enhanced memory" just to keep our names consistent? "Foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds." I have no explicit objection to calling this "super speed", but I do have a problem with using "making our names consistent" as the justification for doing so. Each power (each article, even) should have the best name we can give it as an individual article, without any regard whatsoever to what other articles are called. With the exception of canon source names, all of our names are, to some extent, temporary. They're our best guesses. They're not necessarily the actual name of the article. Why worry about making names which are for all intents and purposes guesses consistent? It seems likely to cause much more trouble than it's worth, particularly when the current name is every bit as good as the "consistent" name.--Hardvice (talk) 20:17, 16 December 2007 (EST)
      • I think that would be pretty pointless, seeing how "super" and "enhanced" in this case mean pretty much the exact same thing. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 20:08, 16 December 2007 (EST)
        • That's what I'm thinking. Does this whole thing really matter?--Ice Vision (talk)
          • Okay, I have to say, it should be changed to super. I've never heard anyone say Spiderman has enhanced strength. Barry Bonds got enhanced strength when he took steroids. There is clearly a difference between enhanced and super. And Heroe, I totally understand what your saying but I feel there is a difference. I agree with Riddler. This one should be changed. Hardvice, yes, SUPER speed IS the common name. I can guarantee you that much. It is absolutely the common name. I do agree that we should think of every enhanced page as an individual to prevent what you described. Jason Garrick 20:27, 16 December 2007 (EST)
            • Both enhanced speed and super speed are used in comics. Generally, "enhanced speed" refers to someone who is faster than human but slower than the frickin' Flash, who has, at various points in his history, moved fast enough to vibrate through walls, fast enough to enter an alternate "speed" dimension, and yes, even fast enough to go back in time. Characters described as possessing "enhanced speed" include Namor and Marrina from Alpha Flight (significantly faster than humans, not as fast as Flash/Superman types), Super Sabre from Freedom Force (around the speed of sound, but again, nowhere near Superman or the Flash), Wonder Woman (faster still, but nowhere near the fastest). I just don't see, based on how little we know about the agent's power, how we can categorically prefer one over the other.--Hardvice (talk) 20:44, 16 December 2007 (EST)
              • Most of the characters I've seen mentioned above so far for "Enhanced" aren't characters that are KNOWN for their speed. They're "enhanced" because it's just an extra aspect of their character, while people like The Flash are "Super" because that's their main ability.--Riddler 15:47, 17 December 2007 (EST)
                • Whether or not it's their main ability doesn't matter, it is a term that is used thus both are "common names".--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:17, 17 December 2007 (EST)
  • Superhuman Speed describes it better though IMHO. Enhanced Speed doesn't do it quite so well; enhanced from what? If I walked really slow and then discovered I could walk a bit faster one day, have I got this superpower? --Tesphen 17:26, 17 December 2007 (EST)

Enhanced speed is enhanced from normal top speeds, which is around 40 MPH, last I checked. It's enhanced to extreme levels, like 600 MPH. ...Although, "enhanced" isn't really saying much. But then again, neither does "superhuman." Superhuman is merely above human, right? Which leaves "super" speed. Super speed describes the ability fine, but it just doesn't sound... Professional. But according to our naming conventions, we have to use it.--ERROR 09:54, 22 June 2009 (EDT)

Sources

Hardvice is right, both "enhanced" and "super" are used in the comics; I checked out Jason's sources, found this:

"Flash" in the NBC TV series had the ability of enhanced speed.
Speed has "super speed", but it is the power to increase the speed of atomic matter.
Quicksilver's and Whizzer abilities are actually called "superhuman speed" by Marvel.
In Smallville/Superman, almost every power is "Super", cause it's about "super"-man.

Now check mine:

I already gave Ant and Hyppolta from Wikipedia. Here's some more examples of "enhanced":
Marvel itself describes Shathra's powers as including "enhanced speed" and "enhanced strength; see here
Marvel also describes Captain America's powers as "enhanced speed" and "enhanced strength" here.
Since you are using wikia for Smallville, I also note that Wikia's marvel uses "enhanced speed" for several characters including Spider-Man and Crystalia Amaquelin, and it actually references DC Comics name for the Flash's ability: The Speed Force, heh.
  • So, imho, both enhanced and super are common, and since enhanced was preferred before, it should stay.--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:50, 16 December 2007 (EST)
    • Good point. Another good point is that they're frequently used interchangeably to describe the same individual's power, depending largely on the phase of the moon and who is writing.--Hardvice (talk) 21:06, 16 December 2007 (EST)
      • So, we should pick one (perhaps take a vote to find which is more popular) and be consistent with all "Enhanced"s and "Supers"s. -- Lulu .:talk:. 21:08, 16 December 2007 (EST)
        • I'm not convinced we need to be consistent in changing powers with "super" to "enhanced" or vice versa. They're names which might change anyway, since they're not canon names. What if Hiro says, "Man, that Charlie, she sure had an enhanced memory!"...then we've got two canon sources, one which says "super" (Micah said it to Niki), and one which says "enhanced". Since there is no canon source for this particular power, either "enhanced" or "super" works. I'm not at all opposed to "super speed", but I'd hate to change it to "super speed" simply because we want to change all our power names to look the same. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:15, 16 December 2007 (EST)
          • I'm not saying that we should treat all enhanced pages the same. I agree with you guys. But I think we just need to do a little bit more editing on the power naming convention. I love it but I feel that it has certain flaws. Besides lots of the wikia's, I found The Marvel Encyclopedia which says superhuman speeds. I've always personally favored super speed because it is what I've heard all my life. In an everyday conversation would you say "enhanced" or "SUPER". :) And I must say, in every instance the Flash is ever mentioned SUPER speed is used, was used and will always be used. Jason Garrick 23:05, 16 December 2007 (EST)
            • Did you check my sources, Jason? Even The Marvel Encyclopedia uses "enhanced speed" for some characters.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:45, 17 December 2007 (EST)

Alternatively wikipedia has this really good list. [1] --Tesphen 16:05, 17 December 2007 (EST)

  • Yeah, wikipedia calls it "superhuman strength" and "superhuman speed", but we don't always go the same as wikipedia.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:17, 17 December 2007 (EST)

Just a comment

NBC´s "Create your Hero" asked to choose an ability for the new character. One of the options was "Superior Physical Speed", and the option was accompanied by a small picture showing a leg running very fast. I don´t know if it was referring to this specific power (the running leg strongly suggests it, but I´m not certain), and I don´t know if whoever organizes "Create your Hero" is a reliable source. I have no idea if "Superior Physical Speed" would be an appropriate name, so I´m just noting it here. What do you guys think?--Referos 14:35, 22 January 2008 (EST)

  • Although it is made by NBC, I doubt that they are using that phrase as the cannon name for the power. If they were, all poor characters should be referred to as "hippies". --Piemanmoo 17:59, 22 January 2008 (EST)

Reminder

This should be moved to the regular abilities section for Portal:Abilities and Template:Power, and have the GN tag disabled in the infobox after tonight.--Bob (talk) 18:15, 22 September 2008 (EDT)

  • Thanks for the reminder. What's nice is that template:power self-updates once the category on this page changes--and that happens once the GN tag is changed. Yea, automatically! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:01, 22 September 2008 (EDT)
    • You and your wiki-magic.--Bob (talk) 19:09, 22 September 2008 (EDT)

Move to super speed

  • Hiro says it. He says Super Speed, not super human speed or moves super fast... he said super speed. Just clarifying. Jason Garrick 23:27, 22 September 2008 (EDT)
  • We should then move Intuitive Aptitude to The Hunger since that is how Gabriel Gabriel Gray (exposed future) & Angela Petrelli have referred to the power. --Snow Leapord 11:55, 12 October 2008 (EDT)
    • I thought "super speed" was Hiro's rather comic book way of saying it, rather than something that should be taken literally. I'm in favor of moving it back to "enhanced speed"--Matchu 02:58, 13 October 2008 (EDT)
      • Since super speed is the only reference in the highest canon level on the ability naming conventions, I say we stick with it until there's another source of the same level calls it enhanced speed. Intuitive Empath 18:08, 13 October 2008 (EDT)
    • He describes something that comes with the ability. Future Gabriel said his ability comes with a hunger, he never said his ability was a hunger. Angela also stated that the hunger comes with his ability. And IE, correct, the "enhanced speed" name was descriptive for when there was an agent in the first possible future in a GN. We did the same with super strength, because at the time, there was no explicit name for it, so we described it. Micah, then Niki both described the ability as super strength, so we changed the name. However, the Company AT named the ability as enhanced strength, so we moved it back. But correct, Hiro has been the only canon source to explicitly name the ability, so this is the most-canon name.--Bob (talk) 18:17, 13 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Sorry to revive this again... I don't have a problem with the name as it is but it's the citation in the naming convention box that bothers me. Daphne asks Hiro if he has super speed too? I'm pretty sure asked him if he was a speedster too... Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 17:59, 28 October 2008 (EDT)

Extent of Daphne's ability

Fellow Heroes fans, Daphne's ability as well as other superhumans who possess this ability could possibly have the ability to achieve immortality. Theoretically couldn't a superhuman who has this ability achieve immortality? Within the DC Universe Flash (Jay Garrick i think) was able to cheat death by running away from it. As i am a fan of comics Flash was able to run back and forward in time, fly due to command of his sped, run through objects (speeding up molecules like D.L) and enter different dimensions.Though the DC Universe and the Heroes Universe are very much different it could possibly happen, couldn't it? Perhaps she could access this advancement similar to how Matt discovered "new" techniques which come with his ability? Please post your comments as they will be very much appreciated. Many thanks to all. --ACDC1989 15:56, 18 October 2008 (EDT)

  • This is very much a theory, so it can go on a theory page if you want, but it doesn't belong on this page. Don't really know why the topic was started.--Bob (talk) 16:02, 18 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Besides, DC is a different universe with a different set of laws of physics, types of beings, and other such things. I doubt that a lot of stuff and concepts like that that exist in the other comic universes would find its way into the Heroes Universe. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 19:12, 18 October 2008 (EDT)
  • On a separate note, they haven't been exactly consistent with her actual speeds. She goes from Paris to Berlin in under a minute, yet can't get across a room in the time it takes Hiro to activate his power (unless he was actually going back in time rather than teleporting). It's about 550 miles to Berlin, and she got there in 45 seconds realtime, so if we round down to 500 and up to a minute, she's going at least 30,000 mph, which is 8 miles a second. Since the writers told us Hiro slows time to a nano of a nano second (1 x 10^-18 seconds), she'd have to be going on the order of hundreds of quadrillions times faster than she was when going to the Moviehaus. Even accounting for the time it took her to get to 'up to speed' when time was slowed doesn't make things much better. Of course, the comment by the writers was likely in jest (or at least without considering what it meant), and none of this really matters, as it's a minor issue/inconsistency anyway.  ;) Stevehim 19:55, 18 October 2008 (EDT)
    • Daphne's potential seems to be vast. She can move at speeds equal to Hiro when time is stopped. However, it seems she does not run at her full potential all the time. From Daphne's point of view, she ran in, grabbed the formula and then saw Hiro out of the corner of her eye, and then sped up even further to get to the point she could move while time was 'stopped'. If I could run like her, I would just run fast enough to not get caught, however Hiro caught her. It would be like running from someone, you only run fast enough to not get caught, you don't super exert yourself if it isn't needed. I think she's just doing the same thing there. Also, when the camera is at normal speed, we can see her blur away. If she was moving as fast as she did when Hiro stopped time, we wouldn't see her.It's late, I hope that made as much sense as it did in my head. Dracomaster4 22:59, 27 October 2008 (EDT)

Peter

The article says Peter absorbed this from future Daphne, but technically the first time he saw this ability was earlier in I Am Become Death when one of the many people who now has this ability speeds past him and future Peter. So could he have not absorbed it from that person? Just putting it out there. Super-Hiro 13:35, 23 October 2008 (EDT)

  • Truth lies here.--Riddler 23:21, 26 October 2008 (EDT)

Assignment Tracker Map

Gives her ability as enhanced speed. Don't know how this figures in. Therequiembellishere 23:01, 26 October 2008 (EDT)

  • That strikes me as a more credible source than a description by someone in the show (going by the logic used for Gravitational manipulation), thoughts? Ricard Desi 00:52, 27 October 2008 (EDT)
    • I was wondering whether Hiro's description was indeed a description, which would put enhanced speed higher, or an outright naming of her power, which keeps it at super speed. I'd also like to say that I think we should try to keep consistent as we have enhanced hearing, strength and memory already. Therequiembellishere 00:57, 27 October 2008 (EDT)
      • We are using Daphne's comment to Hiro, which was very explicit about her ability's name being "super speed". And unless they appear on the show itself, the assignment tracker map or assignment tracker cannot override that based on our current guidelines. I think the name should remain "super speed" for now.--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:07, 27 October 2008 (EDT)

Just a note that should probably go elsewhere: Hiro called it "super-speed," with a hyphen, like in this fan power.--ERROR 10:02, 22 June 2009 (EDT)

  • Hiro said super speed, if the people who sub what he says in Japanese chose to caption it with a hyphen, it makes no difference, or do you think there's a way to tell if a spoken word has a hyphen or not? Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 18:54, 22 June 2009 (EDT)

Just making a note.--ERROR 20:41, 15 January 2010 (EST)

Superior physical speed

  • Superior physical speed (take a look at the link! [2]) (there are different kinds of speed, -mental, physical, verbal etc.) Its whats written in the choices for Audrey and Santiago's ability in Create your Hero... [3]NiveKJ13 07:12, 9 November 2008 (EST)
    • This one works for me...we're over rated with "enhanced" anyways, like "manipulation" lolWitchy2006 07:15, 9 November 2008 (EST)
      • Canon "super speed" trumps evolutions names. Please leave the name alone.--MiamiVolts (talk) 08:39, 9 November 2008 (EST)
  • "Super Speed" only applies to the speed, but what kind of speed; mental?, physical?, verbal? and this is the choices given for the texters of Create your Hero event, of what abilities to give to Audrey and Santiago, which means this is the name...NiveKJ13 08:42, 9 November 2008 (EST)
    • As has been said, no matter what name Create your Hero gives, names from the show always win. Has Superior Physical Speed been said on the show? No, nothing even remotely similar. Thus, please leave the name alone. I suspect the page will be moved back pretty soon. Radicell 09:19, 9 November 2008 (EST)
      • A lot of ability names here weren't even exactly mentioned in the show..like Flight, In the show, it is clearly written in many folders and stuff, that its "Human Flight Potential", but then the Wiki didn't follow it.

And by the way as you can see in the choices, there's two different kind of "speed", -Superior mental speed and Superior physical speed, which means there are different kinds of speed, like emissions. if their the same, then the writers wouldn't need to divide the ability into 2 parts... NiveKJ13 09:27, 9 November 2008 (EST)

- and since, the show only showed us "physical speeds", then it would be physical in the page.NiveKJ13 09:30, 9 November 2008 (EST)

        • No, look at the talk pages in pages like Flight: the explanation clearly says, that Peter says in the show, "I think I can fly." Fly is the word from which Flight is derived. Your name comes from Heroes Evolutions, and is one tier down from the first naming convention, which is the show. The show says that it's super speed, so it's super speed. Even if there's different types of speeds, the word "speed" in itself implies physical. If I tell you, "He's a speedy thief", do you autonomously think that he's a fast talker? No, it means that he is quick and fast in his physical actions. Radicell 09:38, 9 November 2008 (EST)
  • I'm with Radicell and MiamiVolts; the naming hierarchy is pretty clear. If (or when?) something like "superior physical speed" is described sure, let's change it. But until then, we have no reason to. --Matchu 11:54, 9 November 2008 (EST)
  • I'd like to point out that, for Daphne to able to talk to Hiro during a timestop, she'd have to be pretty fast mentally. And verbally.--BardinessBoy 12:01, 9 November 2008 (EST)
  • OK then, Case closed. We're not changing it...NiveKJ13 13:42, 9 November 2008 (EST)
    • I'm late to the discussion, but there are two things that I'd like to point out (beyond the obvious canon source that trumps a near-canon source). First, the Genesis Files have a folder named "Human Flight Potential". We don't know if that was an ability name or not, but we do know that Nathan does not have the potential for flight. Second, the choices given in the Create Your Hero voting promotion were not naming abilities, but attributes of the abilities people have. I highly doubt that "Effects Speed of People" (one of the other choices listed alongside "Superior Physical Speed") is the name of an ability. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:44, 9 November 2008 (EST)

Main Image

Does anyone think that one of these pictures are good? Example 1, Example 2.--Catalyst 00:36, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

  • Nope, too blurry. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 17:56, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Yeah but that;s the thing. You can't see super speed which shows the ability in use. The one we have now, seems like she is in a frozen running position.-- Catalyst · Talk · HL 20:45, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
      • That's cause she is, that's when Hiro first froze time while she was superspeeding, the first time they met, right after she stole the formula from him. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 20:59, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
        • But technically, she wasn't frozen in time. so it really isn't her running.-- Catalyst · Talk · HL 21:18, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

Why?

Why is it that although the only reason Daphne is able to walk normally is because of her power (as seen in the eclipse) when she is around the Haitian she doesn't lose all ability to walk altogether? - Petrelli

Three Times the Amount

In "Cold Wars," didn't Noah say that "We'll need three times the amount to keep this one down" when referring, possibly, to tranquilizer. This sound significant to you guys?--ERROR 18:36, 3 June 2009 (EDT)

Can anyone else...

...see the difference in the effects used for edgar's speed compared to daphne's. Will this be like flint and meredith's pyrokinesis. --mc_hammark 15:08, 27 September 2009 (EDT)

  • Doubt it. There are other examples of abilities with multiple users and different effects. Healing, ability supercharging, telekinesis... Green.gif AltesUTC CH

main page

The main page doesn't involve thoughts, she ask Matt "If she love her" and then her responce after he answer was you hestiated.--50000JH 10:08, 1 October 2009 (EDT)50000JH

Is Edgar different from Daphne ?

1) He was able to speed while the time was frozen. Daphne couldn't.

2) He was surprised by time freezing, while Daphne wasn't and could move (at normal speed) through it. Moreover, that implies he has no speedster reflex since Daphne could see things in slow motions. Edgar has been grabbed by "normal speed" Peter, pushed by Sylar, grabbed by Tracy, and would have got killed by Samuel, even thought he should have been able to reach Samuel before he decided to send the rocks at Edgar...

What do you think ?--Kleith 17:10, 24 November 2009 (EST)

  • When Daphne was originally walking around in time, Hiro was NOT extending his power to her. He just happened to slow down time sufficiently far that she was "normal". When he grabbed Edgar, however, he extended his power to him, thus allowing him to act as he normally would, even in slowdown. --Ricard Desi (t,c) 17:13, 24 November 2009 (EST)
    • OK that makes sense for the first point. But why did Hiro do extend his power to him ? He could have just froze time normally, right ? Since he met Daphne he knew Edgar wouldn't have been affected ? O_o--Kleith 17:17, 24 November 2009 (EST)
      • Maybe so Edgar could still run fast to get away.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 17:19, 24 November 2009 (EST)
        • This may have also been a writer's discrepancy. Also, I'm pretty certain he didn't kill Samuel because Hiro politely asked him not to, odd as that sounds.--PJDEP 21:17, 3 December 2009 (EST)

Another canon source

Just for posterity's sake, Noah explicitly calls Edgar's ability "super speed" on a sticky note in his apartment, seen in The Fifth Stage. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:23, 3 December 2009 (EST)

Run normal speed?

If this is true, then why did Daphe run all the way to france (it would cost days for her mind)? -- Yoshi | Talk | Contributions 17:11, 5 December 2009 (EST)

Hiro extending his ability

Can we eliminate the section of Edgar's ability where it says he used super speed even when time was stopped? It seemed pretty clear the Hiro extended his ability, based on the fact that Hiro reached out and grabbed him, as well as Hiro seeming noticably exhausted afterword.--PJDEP 00:43, 6 December 2009 (EST)

  • I too got an impression Hiro extended his power. And it is already listed here. Green.gif AltesUTC CH 09:59, 6 December 2009 (EST)
    • Edgar used his super speed while Hiro was sitting down. The fact that while time was stopped Hiro was actively doing something else, Edgar was using his own power in stopped time. --Ricard Desi (t,c) 12:38, 6 December 2009 (EST)
      • Hiro grabbed Edgar and then he sped away while time was stopped. Daphne couldn't superspeed in stopped time cause she was already using it so she was in the same time reference as Hiro. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 18:35, 6 December 2009 (EST)
        • In reading this, I understand what was meant now. Did Edgar use his power in stopped time? Yes. Did Daphne? No. (She used her power in "normal time", thus when time was "stopped", she was "normal-speed"). Did Hiro extend his power to allow Edgar to use his power in stopped time? Yes. --Ricard Desi (t,c) 00:48, 7 December 2009 (EST)

Cold

Where is it mentioned somewhere that superspeed users are affected by cold? -- (WaterRatj) 05:19, 8 January 2010 (EST)

  • Noah says this in Let It Bleed as cold has a chilling effect on superspeed users' muscles.--Hiroman 05:40, 8 January 2010 (EST)
    • I Mean on the wiki :p, cause i don't see it anywhere on the wiki by superspeed -- (WaterRatj) 05:43, 8 January 2010 (EST)
      • Oh, it's in the Notes section at the bottom of the Super Speed page. :-)--Hiroman 05:44, 8 January 2010 (EST)
        • Thanks -- (WaterRatj) 06:02, 8 January 2010 (EST)

Just wanted you to know this

In Let it Bleed, Noah says that Edgar must run at a speed of 600 or 700 miles an hour, or even faster. Shouldn't that be on the page? Or at least in the notes?

  • It should. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 19:10, 5 February 2010 (EST)
    • That is just BARELY subsonic. Interesting. It would appear Daphne runs faster (as per her OBSCENELY fast return to Paris), but Edgar is much more proficient in hand-to-hand combat, using his speed as enhanced reflexes. --Ricard Desi (t,c) 19:18, 5 February 2010 (EST)
      • I did notice that Daphne has stated and only does "run fast". Edgar on the other hand, we've seen both run fast and move fast. It is possible that the physics behind it (or biology) is that the muscles get stronger, and perhaps it's a limited amount that can be spread across the body. Of course, this is entirely speculative, but it could explain it. --mc_hammark 19:21, 5 February 2010 (EST)

Name change?

The list Luke & Joanne got from Noah & Quentin list Alexander French as having Superspeed not Super speed. Should the name of the article be changed? If not should Alexander French have his power listed as Super speed or Superspeed? --Snow Leapord (talk) 10:09, 6 November 2015 (EST)
