Causing the Earth to spin backwards, stop, then forwards again, without immediately destroying the planet and everyone on it (as surely would 'really' happen). That's got to be some super-feat right there.
I've often read that he's not physically altering the rotation of earth, that's just the visual representation of him traveling so fast that he's traveling through time.
This. He isn't spinning the earth backwards. As he travels backwards in time it appears to him as if things are moving that way.

As for my favorite feat, it wasn't his flashiest (given the special effects of the time), but the "you've got me, who's got you" and then grabbing the helicopter sequence is still my all time favorite.
