(Unfortunately, the speed factor is usually forgotten, and time is treated as if it really did just stop.) A (slightly) less egregious option is simply to have the speedster move so fast that he appears to duplicate himself - appearing in two places with so little real time passing in between that the brains/sensory equipment of any observers see him in two places at once.
Speculative Fiction writers love to apply this trope to the Theory of Relativity, The Theme Park Version of which says, "If you go fast enough, you'll alter the flow of time, and you can Time Travel to the future or the past." Characters who can't travel through time get the opposite effect: They can speed up so fast, it's as if time stops for the rest of the world.
a guardian angel who rights even the most harmless of wrongs with lightning speed. However, several teen and kid heroes have used it to quickly clean up after a wild house party or to finish in five minutes all that homework that had to be put off to defeat the Monster of the Week.
Super speedsters are not just faster than your average human (otherwise, they might as well be cheetahs). Whether it's permanent or only for a single TV episode or comic book issue, whether it's from being struck by a lightning bolt, defying forces like gravity and air resistance, or using Super Serum, "speed" usually only manifests through running.
Speedsters can even generate vacuums or vortices from the speed they produce, allowing them to do knock out enemies with a twister punch, put out fires, keep themselves in midair, and are quite useful at taking out annoying tornadoes.
No matter the character, there's only one Super Speed: Really Fast.
