Storyline

Barry Allen is a Central City police forensic scientist with a reasonably happy life, despite the childhood trauma of a mysterious red and yellow lightning killing his mother and framing his father. All that changes when a massive particle accelerator accident leads to Barry being struck by lightning in his lab. Coming out of coma nine months later, Barry and his new friends at S.T.A.R labs find that he now has the ability to move at superhuman speed. Furthermore, Barry learns that he is but one of many affected by that event, most of whom are using their powers for evil. Determined to make a difference, Barry dedicates his life to fighting such threats, as The Flash. While he gains allies he never expected, there are also secret forces determined to aid and manipulate him for their own agenda. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

When Barry goes back in time and saves his mom, the new timeline is called Flashpoint. Victor Garber had a recurring role in the tv series Flashpoint (not related to the storyline in "The Flash.) See more »

Goofs

When running at super speed, Flash communicates with his team in real time; but to Barry his team would be talking super slow and to his team he would be talking super fast. A real time conversation simply is not physically possible at super speed. See more »

Quotes
