In JLA 193 (V.1) "Secret of Genesis"... the Red Tornado had been destroyed. The (original) League was investigating RT's explosion. Flash was putting his two-bits in on the conversation with Firestorm and the BIG THREE... Flash is finishes a rubix cube during the brief words throws it in the air and runs all the way to Central City... checks on T.O. Marrow's cell and while he was there he checked the prison records... Ran back and caught the Cube in two panels...
Firestorm's jaw drops... he doesn't believe it until the Big Three just grin and WW says "Firestrom. Why do you think they call him the fastest man alive?"
Now original Superman and Flash were pretty even in the speed department... I believe Flash was only slightly faster than Superman (and he could do stunts I believe Superman couldn't).
Anyhow my point is... Since Superman in ANY universe is only slightly slower than the titleholder of the Flash Mantle(Running that is... It has been hinted that he is faster than Flash flying... I think.)...
I have to assume doing a 200 mile sweep (With X-ray vision as well, more than likely flying) would be a pretty easy feat for him... besides... what is the range on his X-ray vision?... I would guess pretty far.
ANNNND... since we are on this subject...
In a recent JLA issue Superman and Black Lightning battle the Injustice League... and BL takes out a bunch of them... I just wish they would show Superman not holding back on his powers... sure... if they wanna write in someone ingeniously takes him down so others could get ahold of him... fine... But letting BL take out three when Superman could have taken twice that amount of villains (at least) in the same span of time... just makes for shoddy writing.
Sorry... as you can see. I am a huge fan of super speed... though I hate that dispicable speed force concept...
Speaking of that... Does supes touch on the so called "Speed Force" in order to use his super speed? or is that only for heroes that actually run on two legs? Heh.
