Always Root for the Underhog by MauricioAbril Always Root for the Underhog by MauricioAbril
This piece really makes you look deep in yourself and ask the hard question - who would win in a race between Superman, Sonic the Hedgehog, and the Flash? Truly thought provoking :)

Always Root for the Underhog by MauricioAbril

This picture is simply amazing! I love the overall coloring and the texture the artist managed to give Sonic's fur. The details in the background such as Sonic's friends rooting for him really add to the charm of this picture! The artist also has an overall great gallery that is certainly worth taking a look at.

Superman... Comics may say he is slower Running, but... he's top speed is unknown for he is a man without limits.

I always thought Superman was somewhat slower than the Flash.

Say wah!? Superman reversed time to save Louis. Flash went back in time to save his mother alternating a different time resulting in a war between the Amazonians and the sea people.
Can sonic do that.

Chaos control and what about Dark sonic is fastest forms. Forms I can use negative Castro and super and hypersonic is she at the same speed as Superman and the flash

Could you do another version of this that includes Marvel's Quicksilver and a few other speedsters?

That would be a fun idea but I'm not sure I'll revisit this exact piece again. To me it was also supposed to be about the classic race between Flash and Superman from the 60's that Sonic decides to compete in so that's why I didn't include any other speedsters.

According to possible plots, the fastest is not measured by greatest speed but least ego, then they become friend during the race. At that point who wins, who cares.

Sonic is sin fact really slow. Slower than a running Dr Eggman, slower than Mario...

Actually game theory got it all wrong :p They measured his speed in older games, and not the newest (non-Sonic Boom) games

....You're not using GameTheory are you? Because you know that's been debunked dozens of times by several YouTubers since that video's initial upload.

No, it's a personal feeling. Sonic is rarely that fast. And when he is, generally, it's not a good game (or he's in a kart).

As opposed to all of those great speed games featuring the Flash and Superman.

Indeed, Superman and Flash don't have speed games. But what's the difference with the Sonic's speed games? Nobody played them.

Well that's your opinion, and I have no right to deprive you of it. But in my opinion, a majority of Sonic games that are fast are actually really good. Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations have both been almost unanimously praised by both critics and fans alike, while also maintaining a high sense of speed. The same could be said for the Advanced series, Rush series, Adventure series, and, of course, the classic games.
