Johnny Quick possesses the power to move at Class 1000 speed, and can attain velocities of 10,000 His super-human endurance enables him to run great distances without tiring. He has an aura of unknown physical properties which protects him from the rigors of motion at super-speed.

Johnny Quick has the ability to vibrate his atoms at such high speeds that they can slip past the atoms of solid objects, enabling him to pass through such objects without damaging them, with Monstrous ability. He can also vibrate another human he is holding through a solid object with him.

Johnny Quick can channel his super-speed power into flight at an Excellent power rank, or at 150 m.p.h. through the air. He cannot fly faster or slower than full speed. He must be able to run at super-speed in a straight line for three continuous areas to launch himself into the air. He can fly continuously at full speed for a maximum of 4 hours without resting.

Johnny Quick can move his legs and feet to create an air-vortex, at Poor rank, to carry himself aloft. He must be already airborne to use this power; it will not lift him from a dead stop into the air. He can move in this manner at a speed of 30 m.p.h. for fifteen minutes without rest; the advantage of this mode of travel over flight is that he can hover in place, once he is in the air.

Johnny Chambers' guardian, the great scientist Professor Gill, working from a clue he found on a piece of papyrus from the tomb of a king named Amen, developed a secret formula for giving a person the power to move at superhuman speed. Knowing that he himself did not have long to live, Gill told Chambers the formula and instructed him to use it in the cause of justice. Chambers fulfilled Gill's wish by becoming the costumed crimefighter Johnny Quick. As Johnny Chambers, he worked as a newsreel photographer for Sees All/Tells All News, and he entrusted his friend and assistant, Tubby Watts, with the knowledge of his dual identity. As Johnny Quick, he became a member of the wartime All-Star Squadron, and he fell in love with his fellow Squadron member Liberty Belle. The two were married in the spring of 1942 in their secret identities of Johnny Chambers and Libby Lawrence.

Johnny Quick's present whereabouts and activities, if any, have yet to be revealed.

When he speaks the formula "3X2(9YZ)4A," Johnny Quick gains the power to move at superhuman speed. Saying the formula is not the only factor in giving Johnny Quick his super-powers, but those other factors involved have yet to be revealed. Despite previously published accounts, it is also not yet known how many other people, if any, could gain such powers by speaking the formula. Johnny Quick speaks another formula, "Z25y(2AB)6," when he wants to "turn off" his super-speed power.
