    Default Flash - Superman races....

    OK.
    I'm a Flash tragic and I know there's a few here too.

    So, the question I pose is this.
    Have I missed any obvious Flash - Superman races??

    I've got:

    Superman #199 (the first)
    Flash #175 (the second)
    World's Finest #198-199 (the third)


    Then I have:

    DC Comics Presents #1-2
    Adventures of Superman #463
    Flash #53
    Flash Rebirth
    DC 1st


    I don't know of any more.
    And no, I'm not including the Kid Flash/Superboy issue or times where Supes and Flash have teamed up (although I have them too!)
    Just where the two have raced against each other.
    Anything obvious I might have missed??

    Cheers!

    I know during "Superman: Up in the Sky" # 4, half the story takes place during a flashback to a race between Superman and Flash. I'm not sure if it's any of the others, but the main thrust of the story is that Flash is presented as being the obvious favorite, Luthor has agreed to build an orphanage if Superman wins, and that Superman does, in the end, manage to win.

    Later, a little girl asks Superman how he won the race, and he said "I ran faster than Flash did, there's no other real answer," which of course could mean Flash let him win, or not.

    Flash has insinuated that he let Superman keep up with him because it was “for charity”. Really I think Flash should always be faster than Supes. Speed is his whole gimmick. Superman has so many powers. DC really needs to make it official that Flash is the fastest. Being connected to the Speed Force allows the Flash to not only run fast but travel in time and traverse dimensions. Something Superman can’t do.
