List of characters

The Quickster is a superhero who is only seen in the episode, "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V." He is a part of The International Justice League of Super Acquaintances. It is assumed that he retired, and is replaced by SpongeBob in this episode. He has the ability (as his name describes) to run extremely fast. His costume is white with a red lightning bolt on it.

There is an online game on Nick.com based on The Quickster. In the game, the Quickster, who is played by SpongeBob, has to avoid lava and it is called "The Quickster."

Powers

  • Speed; can run so fast he cannot be seen.
  • Red jellyfish (only in Nick Arcade Game Atlantis SquarePantis: Square Off).

Weaknesses

  • If he (Quickster or SpongeBob) abuses his speed, he will be little more than a pair of shoes (as evidenced by SpongeBob.) (Although, it could have been due to Captain Magma/Squidward's lava attack.)
  • His immense speed causes a rut to form if he runs in a closed figure, while not a weakness in its own right, it can possibly dig a rut deep enough to trap him.

Trivia

  • He was originally going to be named "The Whizzer."
  • The Quickster is a parody of the DC Comics superhero, Flash and the Marvel Comics superhero, Quicksilver.
  • The eagle wings on the side of his mask also make him resemble the Marvel Comics superhero Captain America the golden age Flash, the Marvel Comics superhero Whizzer, and Hermes, a Greek god associated with speed and good luck, who served as a messenger to Zeus.
  • Man Ray particularly fears him.
  • His outfit resembles the costume worn by the DC Comics superhero Impulse.
  • The eagle wings on the side of his boots also make him resemble the Marvel Comics superhero Namor, in that he has two tiny wings on both his ankles, which allows him the ablity to fly, and Hermes, on both sides of each of his sandals called the Talaria, which also give him the ability to fly.
