The thread title is pretty self-explanatory. But, because they are legit speedsters and will obviously have a huge advantage here, Yo-Yo and Quicksilver are excluded from the thread. IIRC, Vijay Nadeer also displayed some super speed, but it didn't seem comparable to the likes of the other two mentioned.

Hard question. There are many examples of characters using fast reflexes but none stand out more than the rest.

Bucky and Daredevil have instances of backflipping from gunfire, sometimes at point blank range. I can't remember if Ironfist also had some feats like this. Bucky also had that feat where he took over a civilian's motorcycle while on the move. Did Danny ever block a bullet with his fist?

Thor was shown to block multiple laser fire with his hammer.

Loki caught an arrow without even looking.

I'm sure Cap probably has some very fast reflexes but for the life of me I can't think of a specific example to showcase it best. Maybe landing on his feat after getting tackled by QS.

Wanda was able to contain a bomb as soon as it went off. So that's something too.

I'd say Bucky probably has the best feats but because Cap keeps beating him to the punch I'd assume Cap is just slightly faster.

Well, there is one that is better than the others IMO. Even though Inhumans was an absolutely shitty show, they made Karnak kind of broken (when the plot demanded). He actually karate chopped a bullet in half at one point lol. He also kicked an energy bolt from an Inhuman gun back at his adversary (don't ask me how he can kick energy).

FrothByte
Huh, did he? I watched every episode of that show but somehow can't remember much details from it. They kind of just blurred in my memory. lol.

Also, the actor they got for Karnak was horrible in fight scenes. Nearly as horrible as Finn Jones in Ironfist. Made it harder to appreciate stuff he did.

TheVaultDweller
Yeah, he karate chops the bullet in the episode where the one guy who was running the drug farm goes crazy and wants to kill the others (already having killed the one guy). But his powers are still kind of glitchy, so half the bullet hits the girl he was with. And the energy bolt thing he did when the family returned home.

At about 1:55

The only one who looked half decent in his fights was Triton, but he wasn't there for most of the series.

Pity, because they did make Karnak do a few things (the bullet chop, fight prediction, pressure point knowledge etc.), but it looked bad with that guy doing it.

ShadowFyre
Yondu has to have pretty damn good reflexes and perception to control the arrow.

TheVaultDweller
On a sidenote, what about the telepath guy from AoS? Even with the mind-reading, he still needs to be fast enough to respond to the information, such as when he caught a knife thrown at his back.

That guy vs Karnak should be a never-ending fight lol. One can read their opponent's attacks while the other can see what direction the fight is going to take, and course-correct where necessary.

Ozy's feat is better. Not only would he have chopped that motherf*ucker in half but then he would have caught BOTH halves in one hand and then he would have made the shooter choke on poison!

While monologuing and watching 40 TV screens.

Also, as to Iron Fist brought up earlier. He doesn't really have a lot of feats like the flipping over machine gun fire, and the one where he blocks the bullet with his fist in the finale is more of an aim block (you can see him move his arm before the shot fires). But he does have this one:

Now you're thinking! thumb up

How the hell is Ozy's feat better?

TheVaultDweller
On a random note, Matt has actually done way better than just deflecting arrows. During his first encounter with the Hand (when Elektra got poisoned and Stick showed up), he managed to a dodge/grab combo (bobbed his head, the intended target, to the side, and snatched the arrow with his one hand) when a Hand ninja shot one through the back window of the car they were driving in.

We're just having fun.

Silent Master
Until H1 notices the post and then decides to use it as evidence of how fast Ozy is. At which point trying to explain you were just kidding gets people called a troll for a dozen pages.

Have you met h1, abhi or quan?

juggerman
Oh yeah. h1 is the reason I said it. I wanted to beat him to it. We all know logic doesn't matter to him

Melinda May was also dodging these fast metal balls while crippled with a leg injury while fighting a Kree

BruceSkywalker
where is h1 lmao

Surely, even H1 wouldn't try and argue that chopping a bullet so that it split down the center (and visibly only starting the motion after we have seen the gun fire and the bullet already travel some distance) is worse than just catching one. Because he can't use the same BS excuses he tried in the Butcher thread. A. Karnak's hand was still at his side after the shot, B. Moving his arm in a loop and then bringing it down in a strike = more complicated than moving an arm out to the side and, C hitting something with enough precision to actually split it down the center is more difficult than just catching it.

...of course he'd argue that.

TheVaultDweller
Well, I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, one last time lol. Though I would not be surprised if he proved me wrong either.
