After being bitten by a radioactive spider at a science exhibition, Peter Benjamin Parker gained proportionate strength, speed, and agility, along with his precognitive Spider-Sense. He soon learned that with great power comes great responsibility. He quickly became a popular hero and was often referred to as the "world's greatest superhero".

Throughout his long career, Spider-Man has met some incredibly quick villains, including the prodigy geneticist Miguel O'Hara of Nueva York in 2099 A.D., whose advanced scientific powers allowed him to become the Spider-Man of his time.

But can anyone really compare to Spider-Man's incredible speed? How fast can he run without the help of his web-slinging or other acrobatic skills?

We've gathered all the information we could find to answer this question and more. Keep reading to learn just how fast can spiderman run!

When it comes to pure running, Spider-Man can easily move at speeds of over 70 miles per hour. This is a lot faster than the average human's top speed, and even more impressive when you consider that Peter Parker weighs about 167 lb, so he moves at about the same rate as a cheetah when not wearing his suit.

However, there are some cases where Spider-Man can move even quicker than that. For example, when he uses the Velocity Suit, which was created for Insomniac's PS4 game Marvel's Spider-Man, his speed can increase to nearly 400 ft/s or Mach 1.9. This is the same speed at which he can dodge sniper bullets, or keep up with an energy blast that is moving at near light-speed.
