I can only reinforce Laurel's offering. The panels below are taken from Brave & Bold #67 (1966), with a recuperating Flash showing the villain what speed is really all about!

He does in the comics: (Presumably, it’s the same as anyone else running backwards: it’s not as fast as running forwards, but it’s much more showy.) I believe this image is from the JLA/Avengers crossover. (Related: In another story the Flash is outsped by some other guy running backwards.)

Not only can he run backwards, he can still outrun Superman while doing so. We see this in the race scene from Smallville.

This is Superman, Inc. (1999). Superman is adopted by the Sudermans and becomes Dale Suderman, ace sportsman. The comic is explicitly noted to be an Elseworlds comic. His sporting prowess extends to basketball, baseball, American football and he's also an Olympian.

I don't believe Darkseid has ever fought Mxyzptlk himself, but he and the Quintessence were brought under the Joker's thrall when the Joker had acquired 99.9% of Mxy's power. This occurred in the Superman: Emperor Joker storyline, where the powered up Joker nearly destroyed the entire DC multiverse, and was depicted as being beyond even the Spectre in power....

He doesn't... Take this speech from "Justice League Unlimited". That man [Batman] won't quit as long as he can still draw a breath. None of my teammates will. Me? I've got a different problem. I feel like I live in a world made of cardboard, always taking constant care not to break something, to break someone. Never ...

Before we answer there is an important distinction to be made between the main DC Universe and the DC Animated Universe. Batman Beyond the TV show is a canon element of the DC Animated Universe, and was made in the 2000's before Damian Wayne was ever a character. The show would never have been able to address his existence, and none of the tie-in comics to ...

In the 2017 DCEU film Wonder Woman the person doesn’t need to be tied up but it appears to have to be tied around them to work. In the below video the first clip shows the classic bound body and arms but in the second it is just wrapped around the wrist. In Wonder Woman Annual 1 the Lasso of Truth works by Wonder Woman, ...

The Green Lantern does not have to, except as a convention. There's nothing special about the words except for personal/Corps significance, as oaths differ between certain Lanterns. And in a previous continuity where the Guardians had left the universe for various reasons, the Corps had collapsed and mostly only Jordan, Gardner and Stewart had rings, Jordan ...

It is probably too late to answer the question now, but I'd like to add a few shreds of evidence to the plate (from the TV series-The Flash and not the comics) S04-E15 "Enter Flashtime": One can see Barry sweating (heavily, I must say, and it was mainly because of heat emitted due to detonation of a nuke) when he comes to Iris, scared and 'tired', and ...

This doesn’t need an explicit in-canon answer. You can still tell the difference between the weight of an empty spoon, a spoonful of sugar, and a spoonful of water, even though you can lift them all effortlessly. Similarly, you can tell the difference in sharpness between a normal stick, a pointed stick, and a smoothed/rounded stick, even though none of ...

In Joker 10, (yes, there was a 10th issue of the joker series, even though, it previously only had 9 issues.) one of the joker's victims (and his last victim to die from the JLA.) is wonder woman, she died strangled by the joker during a battle on the statue of liberty, she used the lasso of truth on the joker, but the joker was able to remove the lasso and ...

She's been beaten (if not badly) at different points. Richard Dragon defeated her on several occasions (though to be fair, she has stomped him in retaliation at times, too) Black Canary didn't defeat her on one occasion, but she did fight her to a stand still/draw.... Bronze Tiger did the same, but I can't find a scan... And her daughter, Cassandra, aka ...
