— The Quickster, "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V"

The Quickster is a superhero who first appears in the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V." He is a member of The International Justice League of Super Acquaintances (IJLSA).


He has the uncanny ability to run really quick. His costume is white with a red lightning bolt on it.



  • If he abuses his speed, he will be little more than a pair of shoes.
  • 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.
