New 52 Flash
You're moving fast, Barry. Think fast.
— The Flash


Barry Allen is The Flash, the fastest man alive. Using his super-speed powers, he taps into the Speed Force and becomes a costumed crime-fighter. He is a founding member of the Justice League.

On the night of a storm, a bolt of lightning crashed through his lab's window, and struck him Barry the chest, causing him to drop the chemical vials he was carrying, and douse himself. After a long comatose period, Barry woke with super-speed abilities. Barry decided to take on a symbol for himself and fight for good. He created the ring that held his specially designed costume and became known as the Flash, the fastest man alive.
