"Not every problem has a solution. Sometimes we just have to let go."
―Flash to his counterpart[src]

Bartholomew Henry "Barry" Allen is a former student at Central City College who was struck by a bolt of lightning one fateful night, gaining the ability to think and move at incredible superhuman speeds. Using these powers, he became a superhero in Central City known as The Flash, fighting against criminals like Captain Boomerang while trying his best to keep a low profile in the process. He is also desperate to prove his father's innocence for the grisly murder of his mother.

He was eventually discovered and subsequently monitored by supergenius Lex Luthor and was then later recruited by Bruce Wayne to be a member of the Justice League in order to help defend Earth after the death of Superman at the hands of Doomsday.

Following his recruitment to the team, Flash played a pivotal role in the resurrection of Superman. With the team now fully assembled, Flash greatly contributed to the successful assault against the forces of General Steppenwolf of Apokolips, forcing the alien invasion to retreat from Earth. Afterward, Barry was hired for a position at the Central City Police Department's crime lab, much to his imprisoned father's delight.

Later, he used the Speed Force to travel across the multiverse, and, at some point during his travels, met another version of himself, from a different universe. Allen eventually went with the Justice League to help the 11th Street Kids at Coverdale Ranch fight the butterflies, but the 11th Street Kids had already finished off the threat.

Later, Barry got a new suit that materializes itself when he wears a ring with the symbol of the Flash. He began to be trained by Bruce Wayne, while dealing with new criminals like Girder, Tarpit and the Top, and his co-workers Patty Spivot, David Singh and Albert Desmond.

Seeking to travel back in time to avoid his father's arrest, Allen traveled back in time to prevent his mother's death, though he ended up trapped in an alternate 2013, meeting a younger version of himself, which he helped gain his powers when Dru-Zod attacked Earth, so he and his other version allied with an alternate Batman and Supergirl to stop Zod, causing the deaths of his companions. As the Flashes rewound the past to reverse events, they were confronted by a future version called Dark Flash, who with so many attempts to save his comrades, endangered the Multiverse, causing his counterpart to sacrifice himself to stop him, and with Flash reversing his mistake by letting his mother die. When Allen returned to the present to attend to the release of his father, he ended up meeting another alternate Bruce Wayne.


Early Life

"This question is stupid. How many calculations can you think of with an answer of 24? There are a bajillion answers. How I am supposed to fit them all?"
"You are right. There are a bajillion anwers to this question. Not every problem has a solution. Sometimes you just have to let go."
―Barry Allen and Nora Allen[src]

He explained his situation to Nora for not finding a solution, he would receive advice from his mother which was that not every problem has a solution and sometimes you just have to let go. Because he forgot the tomato can, Nora entrusted Henry to look for a can only for Barry to start to play with his parents in the kitchen before starting to dance and play with his mother to the rhythm of the song Pedro Navaja.

Some time later, inside his room, Barry tried to solve his math problem before hearing a scream from the kitchen, being quickly called by Henry, whom he saw through the window and in horror, Barry saw his bloodied mother, receiving Henry's request for help to call the police. Because no one believed that it was another individual who killed his mother because he was a minor, Henry was wrongly framed by the police, sentencing him to a life sentence in Iron Heights Penitentiary.

Growing up, Barry was teased by his classmates because Henry was framed as a murderer. Motivate, he began studying criminal law at Central City College in hopes of one day clearing his father's name and freeing him from prison, visiting him occasionally to talk about the jobs he was getting.[6] During his studies, Barry befriended and fell in love with his classmate Iris West, who also had an attraction for him.[5]

Fortunately, Flash managed to free himself from the rocket as it began to descend, and proceeded to capture Boomerang.[8]

With that said, Flash proceeded to knock him down and leave for him to be arrested and sent to Belle Reve Federal Penitentiary.[1]

Rescuing Iris West

Barry visits his father (Zack Snyder's Justice League)

Barry talks with his father.

Barry visited Henry in prison to talk about his new job, but he was upset because he had four jobs that weren't useful. Barry reminded him that he required money to get his degree in criminal law, even though his father admitted his guilt. Father and son began to argue until they both joined hands, as Henry gave Barry advice on how to let go of the past to create his future. Shortly afterward the guards took Henry to his cell. Barry kept thinking about his father's phrase.

Upon reaching his hideout, Barry turned on the lights, but was surprised by Bruce Wayne, who came to recruit him. To hide his identity, Barry tried to trick Bruce, since he had broken into his house without permission. Barry tried to lie about his suit by lying that he practiced ice skating and mentioned that he had various skills, but Bruce knew he was lying. When Bruce threw a batarang, Barry used his powers and observed the batarang, which caused him to discover that Bruce was actually Batman.

Surprised, Barry admitted that he had speed powers. While Bruce offered him to join his team of super people, he immediately accepted, since he needed friends, and asked Bruce if he could keep his batarang. The duo left the lair with pizza and Barry was surprised as they were going on a jet. Barry asked Bruce about his power, which he responded with "I'm rich".

After landing in Gotham City, Barry and Bruce met up with Diana, who was actually Wonder Woman. After being introduced by Bruce, Barry was surprised by Diana and made a fool of her upon meeting her. Barry, Bruce and Diana saw the Bat Signal, something that made Barry excited, since it was Bruce's signal, but he acted discreetly so that Bruce's secret identity would not be revealed.[6]

As Steppenwolf approached them, Barry was grazed in the leg by a Parademon blast and was nearly taken before being saved by Diana. However, Steppenwolf proved to be too strong for the ragtag team to handle, catching a missile fired from the Knightcrawler and using it to flood the area before escaping. Luckily, Aquaman saved them by slowing the tide with his trident, allowing Barry and the others to get to safety.[6]

Resurrection of Superman

"I know we're all thinking the same thing right now. Who's gonna say it? I'm not gonna say it."
―Barry Allen to the Justice League[src]

The League regrouped in the Batcave to plan their next move. After discovering the capabilities of the Mother Box in Cyborg's possession, the team decided to use the Genesis Chamber in the Kryptonian ship along with the Mother Box to resurrect Superman. (They believed that bringing him back not only completed the team but also increased their odds of defeating Steppenwolf.) As a result, Victor and Barry dug up Clark's grave, with the pair noting the abnormality in their task and bonding over their powers.

However, Superman awakened disoriented and, believing them to be hostile, attacked the League, who were all but powerless against him. While Superman held back Diana, Arthur, and Victor simultaneously, Barry attempted to flank him, though this tactic quickly proved to be for naught, as Superman could almost keep up with Barry's speed, much to his terrified amazement. Flash, in haste, attempted to evade Superman's attacks but was knocked into the wall of the memorial and incapacitated.[6]

The team returned to the Batcave where Cyborg figured out Steppenwolf's plan. The team made a plan to take down Steppenwolf and stop the Unity, in which Barry played a key part. Because of Silas' sacrifice, the League was able to pinpoint Steppenwolf's location in the abandoned town located in Russia. Barry and the League took off in the Flying Fox to face the Apokoliptian. Upon arriving, Barry and the others observed as Batman led the Parademons away and took down the shield surrounding Steppenwolf's base. Barry was then tasked with running laps around the facility to build up a charge, which was required to get Cyborg into the boxes. He was shot by a Parademon and had to take a few seconds to heal, but it was too late. The Unity formed, and the world was scorched, turning into an extension of Apokolips, with a Boom Tube opening to allow Darkseid to take full control of the boxes. Barry began witnessing the destruction of Earth and then remembered that he could reverse time to save the world. Realizing that all life on Earth would be destroyed, Barry broke his one rule: going faster than the Speed of Light. As he ran, time reversed to the point just before the Unity was activated, and he managed to send Cyborg into the boxes, and after destabilizing the boxes, Cyborg and Superman separated them, preventing the Unity and saving Earth. A defeated but still determined Steppenwolf attempted to attack the League only to be impaled by Aquaman, punched by Superman into the portal, and decapitated by Wonder Woman. Flash rejoined the team as they all got a glimpse of the alien tyrant before the Boom Tube closed.[6]

A New World

"Is this like a job-job?"
"Job job."
―Barry Allen and Henry Allen[src]Determined to investigate and stop crime in Central City, Barry joined as a forensic scientist at the Central City Police Department. Upon receiving the job, Barry met with his father in prison to inform him of his new job as a scientist, mentioning that he now "had one foot in the door." Henry laughed at the term his son used before congratulating him on his new job; Barry thanked him for all his help.

Finally being at peace with himself knowing that his father was proud of him, Flash began to run pleasantly through the streets of Central City, feeling happy to now be in charge of defending his city. Now with his new job, Barry could investigate and stop various crimes legally and officially. There, he met his co-workers Patty Spivot and Albert Desmond, as well as his professor and boss, Dr. David Singh, to whom he brought coffee every day. Barry regularly went to Filby's Café, where Sara had prepared her sandwich for him before he went to work.

Eventually, Barry wound up in a memory of S.T.A.R. Labs from another Earth by accessing the Speed Force, and accidentally coming across that universe's version of himself in the process. Confused, he asked the other Barry Allen where he was and what was happening, to which the other Barry said he did not know. He then asked the other Barry if his suit was a cosplay and if he wanted a selfie, to which the other Flash said no, exclaiming that he was also the Flash. Barry was confused by this name that the other Barry had given himself but took a liking to it. The other Barry said that the situation was complicated, and then the two Barrys complimented each other's suits, but then they both quickly stood back awkwardly and shook hands, both saying "I'm Barry Allen" in unison, which freaked them both out. The other Barry said that their encounter should be impossible now, to which Barry asked why, not knowing what he meant. The other Barry was taken aback by Barry's unknowing of the Crisis that was occurring in the Multiverse. Before the other Barry could explain the situation any further, Barry faded out while saying that he had told Victor Stone this was possible.[9]

Advised by his Father

"What am I supposed to do about it? I can't quit my part-time job. It's important. But I can't quit on the crime lab either... and I can't quit on you. It's just too much to do all at once."

Barry changed back into his civilian clothes as he could now take care of his work, knowing that he would have another chance to pursue his studies. Over the next few days, Barry was able to quickly complete the cases sent by David Singh, thus redeeming his late arrivals by receiving new cases to investigate. A week later, Barry returned to Iron Heights to tell Henry of his progress in receiving better cases, gladdening his father who was happy that he had time to visit him as Barry claimed that he will always have time to see him and they joined hands again before Barry returned to the lab.

Learning New Lessons

Discussion with his Father

"The whole reason I went into forensic science was to help people like you."

Following his victory, Barry went to Iron Heights Penitentiary to tell Henry how he continued to solve important cases involving the Flash, stating that with all his effort, he could eventually become a forensic for the Central City Police Department, having faith that when that happens, he will be able to get his father out of prison, though Henry mentioned that quite a few people have tried to help with his case to no avail, frustrating Barry when he stressed that he started studying forensic science to help people like him, despite Henry trying to explain to him the difference between helping people and helping himself. Barry bid his father farewell to him and returned to work, smiling as a child praised the Flash, something that encouraged Barry.[12]

Attack in Central City

"Listen pal, I don't know how you spin your body like that or where those murder toys came from, but I'm over it. You might be new in the town, so I'll give you the cliffs notes. I'm the Flash, the fastest man alive. And this is going to be over faster than you think."
"I'm not your pal. Call me the Top. And you're right, this is going to be over faster than you think."
―Flash and Top[src]

When Top showed up, claiming that their fight wasn't over and mentioning that it was time to make history, Flash discovered that Top had implanted giant spinning tops so that he could continue his threat until he received his money, angering Flash, who tried to attack him again to defeat him once and for all, failing in his attempt to hit him and being defeated by Top. Flash, unable to move, listened to Top force him to surrender and reveal his true identity within 24 hours, taunting Flash as he returned to his hideout to find out how he could defeat him and save the city.[12]

Reconciliation with his Father

"The whole city is going to be destroyed if the Flash doesn't give up himself. Even then this madman's probabily still going to do it... and it's all Flash's fault. I... know the Flash. I've worked on a lot of his cases... If he hadn't been such a show-off... such an idiot, then none of this would've ever happened. The city would be safe."
"If you're trying to tell me the city wouldn't have any problems without the Flash, then you're dead wrong. With the world we live in, there's always going to be some dramatic jerk out to hurt people."
"I just wish I could tell him something... Anything that could stop him from giving up. You know?"
―Barry Allen and Henry Allen[src]
Flash trains to defeat Top

Returning to his hideout, Barry continued his recordings to find a way to save people when he faced the Top in 19 hours, thinking that his speed could kill people, deciding to start training and reinforce his skills. Using several mannequins and a training field, Flash ran between the mannequins to dodge the civilians at the moment that Top attacked him with his tops, practicing with various circumstances and testing his skills, but due to losing concentration, Flash destroyed the mannequins, worrying when they began to vibrate uncontrollably, filling him with fear of killing everyone if he did not control his powers.

During the talk, Barry received some great advice from Henry, considering him to be the bravest person he knows, telling him that he never gave up and neither should Flash, regardless of how risky the threat to save the city is, advice that Barry appreciated in order to become more confident in himself.[12]

Battle at Central City

Seeing that Top was exhausted, Flash tried to offer his help, asking that they could save the city together, considering him a great scientist, but Top refused the offer, creating a giant whirlwind to finish him off, though Flash was able to defeat him, allowing Top to be arrested and then took it upon himself to destroy all of the giant tops, saving the city, and ended up falling into the streets, accidentally destroying half of them.

Discovering the Chronobowl

"I had a friend run the old security camera footage from the store through this new program he's developed. And it's crystal clear now. It's just... you never look up, dad. You can't see your face. So, without new evidence to support your alibi, we're just gonna need to start thinking about the next appeal."
"No, uh-uh. You need to stop worrying about your old man. Do that, you might actually have time for a girlfriend."
"But dad! I don't want..."
"We've done this before. This was a last-ditch effort and we'll go through the motions tomorrow. I'm okay, really. You know, sometimes I even think it's probabily easier for me to be in here than out there, without her."

"Barry, these scars we have make us who we are. We're not meant to go back and fix them. And there's nothing broken with you that needs to be fixed. Take it from an old guy who's made a lot of mistakes. Don't live your past. Live your life. Don't let your tragedy define you."

"I'm not very good with people. Even myself."
―Barry Allen[src]

Barry Allen is a remarkably intelligent and determined individual, becoming a highly skilled forensic scientist to prove the innocence of his imprisoned father Henry Allen in the death of his mother Nora Allen. As the Flash, Barry is determined to keep his secret identity a secret from others, demonstrated by the many excuses he came up with when confronted by Bruce Wayne, despite none of them being convincing enough to fool the latter. When finally exposed by Bruce, Barry was quick to agree to join the Justice League, due to his great desire to gain friends he could relate to.

However, despite his incredible powers and happy personality, Barry initially remained insecure and unsure of himself, since all of his League teammates seemed prepared to do battle against Steppenwolf's army. In addition to this, Flash had a penchant for drifting around and is plagued by multiple social disorders. However, following the battle against the Apokoliptian forces, Barry developed a stronger sense of confidence, as seen when he didn't hesitate to face the disoriented Superman after his resurrection, despite being visibly terrified.

Despite his tragic childhood, Barry is quite laid-back, witty, bubbly, and somewhat childish and humorous, in stark contrast to the very calm, mature, dark, and serious Batman, as well as most of the Justice League. Regardless of these differences though, the Flash idolizes Batman, promptly expressing a desire to keep a Batarang, and gushing about seeing the Bat-Signal. The Flash seems to idolize and admire Superman just as much, however, as the Man of Steel's heroic death is what inspired Barry to also more openly use his own metahuman powers and come out into the light as the Flash.

Barry's humorous attitude, however, initially annoys his fellow Justice Leaguers; Batman and Aquaman in particular, as well as Cyborg, and even the considerate Wonder Woman, though she still treats him with compassion.[14]

Barry was nonetheless able to strike up friendships with most of them: bonding with Victor Stone over their similar accidents and insecurities, looking up to Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince as mentors, formed a friendship-hate relationship with Aquaman, whom Barry often jokes about his rumor of having sex with fish, and developing a friendly rivalry with Superman, even challenging him to a race to the Pacific coast to see which one of them was truly faster. Barry can also be extremely serious on occasion, notably during his regular visits to his imprisoned father, Henry Allen.

Barry from Flashpoint, a version of Barry that never experienced his mother's death, was even more laid-back, silly, and immature, as well as less intelligent. This annoyed and angered the original Barry, who accuses his younger self of taking his happy life for granted, and not challenging himself. Growing up with more tragedy also made Barry more resilient to tragedy and corruption, since unlike Flashpoint Barry, he didn't become the Dark Flash.

Powers and Abilities

Flash running fast

Flash using his super-speed

Speed Force Conduit: Barry Allen, after being struck by lightning and doused in nearby chemicals, gained a metahuman connection to the Speed Force, an extra-dimensional energy field, granting him many speed-based superhuman abilities, as the Flash.[15]

  • Superhuman Speed: Flash is capable of moving at tremendous hypersonic speeds, an ability so powerful that his movements are invisible to the naked eye. He notably ran from a fridge to knock out a mugger and returned before the milk bottle he was holding could fall. Later, he was able to draw on a man's face when visiting his father in Iron Heights too fast for him or anybody else to notice. When the Justice League attempted to restrain a confused and angry Superman following his resurrection, Flash was able to evade the majority of the Kryptonian's attacks, only being hit due to stumbling. Similarly, Flash was able to dodge many blows from General Zod, Faora, and Nam-Ek in Flashpoint's alternate timelines. This shows that Flash is faster than super-powered Kryptonians, though not by much, since a few minutes after Flash dodged Superman's initial attacks, Superman was able to dodge Flash's superspeed charge (forcing Flash to run into Aquaman). Similarly, General Zod adjusted and synchronized his movements with Flash a few minutes later, hurling Supergirl into him. Flash, however, may not have been using his full speed, and so later Superman and Flash decided to settle which one of them is faster with a race. At his fastest moments, the Flash is able to force himself to move beyond the speed of light in order to go back in time, such as when he undid the Unity and prevented his mother's death. In addition, the intensity of the Flash's speed allows him to deliver superhumanly strong attacks (enough to leave Aquaman dazed for a few minutes after an accidental collision, and even make Kryptonians stumble, and break through Kryptonian visors), as well as to run along vertical surfaces, across the surface of water, through solid matter, into other dimensions of the Multiverse, and even through time itself.[15]
    • Afterimage Projection: By combining his powers of speed and vibration, the Flash is able to generate a ghost effect that effectively prospects afterimages of himself from a few seconds before.[12]
    • Tornado Generation: By spinning in super-speed, Flash can generate a tornado, charged with Speed Force lightning. This can take the form of a narrow tornado, or a wider vortex.
  • Superhuman Metabolism: Because of Flash's accelerated metabolism, he burns calories at an accelerated rate, keeping his body slim and fit, so this requires him to intake a very high amount of calories to function normally. Due to this, Flash describes himself as a "snack hole": a black hole of snacks.
    • Regenerative Healing Factor: Flash's speed extends to him on a biological level, and thus, his metabolism functions faster than that of humans, which allows him to heal any injuries (as long as they aren't lethal) within a short time frame. Hence, Flash required only a few minutes to heal from getting shot in the leg by a Parademon plasma bolt.
    • Enhanced taste: Flash's boosted metabolism also makes food taste more intense to him than before.
    • Alcoholic Immunity: Flash's boosted metabolism makes him unable to get drunk.
Barry sees the Batarang in slow motion

Barry's slow-motion perception

  • Superhuman Reflexes: Flash possesses reflexes far greater than those of a human. This allows him to easily react to danger and events and perceive the world in slow motion. Fortunately for Flash's sanity, he can relax this ability to enable himself to interact with and tolerate the real world. While in this state, Flash is also able to outpace the speed of other forces like gravity (even the fluctuating gravity around a World Engine), allowing him to move faster than an object that can be affected by gravity and begin falling. His reflexes are faster than normal people can even perceive. Hence, Flash was able to easily dodge a batarang thrown at him by Bruce Wayne, with it appearing to be moving at him in slow motion (at least 62 times slower than in real-time), and Bruce himself almost frozen in place from Barry's perspective. While saving Iris West from a car crash, Barry sees her and the flying objects around her as if they were suspended in mid-air. Even the superhumanly fast Wonder Woman is far slower than Flash, and is seen to be moving in slow motion from his perspective. However, Superman and Flashpoint's General Zod are both shown to be capable of moving at a similar speed, able to nearly match Flash on several occasions, and outpace him on others, to the point where Flash and Superman made a friendly wager afterwards, in a race to see who is truly faster.
    • Accelerated Perception: This allows Flash to easily react to danger and events and perceive the world in slow motion.
  • Superhuman Momentum: While moving at an accelerated speed, Flash generates superhuman levels of momentum, which allow him to enhance the force behind his movements and attacks, often propelling people and objects several feet, which Flash uses to compensate for his otherwise average physical strength. Hence, Flash was able to easily mow down an entire squad of Parademons by colliding with them at an immense speed, defeating Captain Boomerang in the same swift manner, sending a mugger flying with a single push. When saving Iris from her car accident, Flash had to carefully guide her out of danger to prevent her from getting whiplash. When Flash accidentally collides with the extremely durable Aquaman, he sends the latter flying into some steps, breaking them and leaving the Atlantean dazed for several minutes. Flash is even able to send some Kryptonians flying a few feet from these collisions, and is able to break through some of their visors with super-speed punches.
    • Momentum Negation: Flash also can come to a full stop, despite the extreme inertia of his movements, allowing him to further the illusion of having not moved at all if he moves at super speed and returns to his previous location before anyone can notice it.
  • Superhuman Agility: Flash's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to superhuman levels, allowing him to navigate while moving at superhuman speed. Thus, Flash managed to dodge most of the attacks from Steppenwolf and some from Superman, Flashpoint General Zod and Flashpoint Faora. This coordination, however, isn't an intuitive trait, as Barry was still initially a bit clumsy, sometimes tripping over himself mid-run. He improves his agility with practice though, being far less clumsy than his younger Flashpoint self.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Flash's body can handle the stress of moving at superhuman speeds for extended periods without getting tired or weak, so long as he's not running on an empty stomach.
  • Superhuman Durability: Flash is capable of resisting tremendous kinetic impact forces that could easily crush or kill a human, without suffering any serious external or internal injuries. However, if he stands still, he is no more durable than a human, hence Flash was wounded by a Parademon's plasma bolt.
  • Molecular Oscillation: Flash can vibrate his molecules to generate friction and manipulating his tangibility.
    • Intangibility: Flash can phase himself through solid objects by vibrating his molecules at super speed.[15] If he is holding onto someone else while phasing, the other person will also phase with him. He quickly phased to avoid the Unity's destruction in order to go back in time, and later to phase out of Flashpoint General Zod's grip. Flash can also use his intangible phasing offensively, forcing his vibrating hand through the otherwise invulnerable Faora and several other Kryptonians, which knocked some of them out. After temporarily losing his powers, Barry is able to quickly teach his younger Flashpoint self how to phase.
  • Interdimensional Travel: Flash's incredible speed enables him to travel into other realities of the Multiverse.[15]
  • Time-Travel: Flash can run fast enough to break through the fabric of the space-time continuum, enabling him to travel forward or back in time, to monitor or alter past events. Flash notably went back in time a few minutes, to help Superman and Cyborg stop the Unity, and later to prevent his mother's death.
    • Time Regression: Flash can rewind or reverse time.
"I might be able to do it. I mean, I- I might be able to jumpstart it. I- I don't like to break this rule, but when I approach the speed of light, I-- look, crazy things happen to time, but if I do it, I create massive electrical power. I can backtrack. If I can get enough distance, I can conduct a significant enough electrical current, I- I might be able to wake the box if that's... s-still what we want?"
  • Electricity Generation: While moving at incredible speeds, Barry generates powerful bolts of electricity which can cause nearby technology to short-circuit or overload. He was able to charge himself enough to charge a Mother Box with enough energy to jump-start Scout Ship 0344's Genesis Chamber. According to Amanda Waller's files, Flash can also charge the air vortexes that he generates with electricity, thereby further increasing its offensive capabilities. That is later demonstrated when Flash fights General Zod in Flashpoint's alternate timelines. Flash's lightning is powerful enough to make Nam-Ek and several other Kryptonians pause and stumble, and, after Flash supercharges his lightning by running around a bit, it becomes powerful enough to break through Nam-Ek's armor. Flash is also capable of using this ability for smaller, more precise scales, such as lightning a firecracker with a tiny spark he generated by snapping his fingers. Interestingly, Barry's lightning coloration changes dependent on whether he wears his latest Flash suit - his lightning is sapphire blue without it, and golden yellow with it.


"You can be whatever you want to be. You're a brilliant man. Absolute best of the best."
Henry Allen to Barry Allen[src]
  • Genius-Level Intellect: Barry Allen is an exceptionally intelligent science enthusiast, with aptitudes in physics, forensics, and engineering. Notably, Barry was capable of designing and building his Flash suit from anti-friction material employed by NASA, impressing even Batman with the sophistication. Since his childhood, Barry has been devoted to dedicating himself to studying forensic science to prove his father's innocence in the murder of his mother, which is why he is much smarter than Flashpoint Barry, who had never had to mentally challenge himself though such dedication.
    • Expert Engineer/Scientist: Barry Allen possesses an intimate understanding of quantum mechanics, mechanical engineering, and electronics, allowing him to construct the sophisticated Flash suit using materials that, in addition to holding up against immense levels of heat and friction, ground the excess currents of energy he experiences while moving at tremendous speeds.[16] He is also able to explain the scientific aspects of some of his powers to his Flashpoint counterpart.
    • Musician: Barry claimed he's capable of playing the viola to Bruce Wayne.
    • Bilingualism: Barry speaks his native English and also sign language. He also claims to know gorilla sign language, but there is no difference between the sign languages used by humans and gorillas, so this is an attempt at humor.
  • Expert Combatant: Despite initially having no formal training in hand-to-hand combat, Barry's abilities allow him to execute attacks against opponents with superhuman amounts of force. He was able to easily subdue Captain Boomerang with a single blow, sending a mugger flying with a single push, and dodge multiple attacks from Superman, before being defeated. However, Flash himself has admitted to Batman that he is very inexperienced. After training some more with the Justice League though, Flash improves, enough to teach his younger Flashpoint self how to use his powers in combat. Though that training, both Flashes worked together to subdue Faora, Nam-Ek, and several other Kryptonians - breaking through their visors with either super-fast punches, Speed Force lightning, or pieces of Kryptonian metal. Flash also helps Supergirl in many iterations of her final battle with General Zod, though they fail each time. Flash was also able to take down many Parademons single-handedly during the War for Earth.
  • Skilled Teacher: Barry is able to instruct his younger Flashpoint self on how to get his powers, and how to effectively use them. Despite initially not making much headway with his scatterbrained, silly, and immature younger self, Barry eventually imparts the younger Barry with enough knowledge for them to effectively find Batman, rescue Supergirl, and even take down multiple Kryptonians. The younger Barry grew to look up to Barry, and even sacrificed his own life to save his mentor from the Dark Flash.


  • Insufficient Nutrition: Flash's accelerated metabolism forces him to eat and drink and huge amounts of food every so often. If he consumes less, his speed and reflexes will begin to falter. This notably happens when he tries to save a falling nurse and babies - he weakens, and is forced to pause his rescue to eat the nearby food that is falling next to them.


  • Flash Suit: Barry Allen wears a protective scarlet suit with high tensile wires holding the various pieces together, emblazoned with a golden lightning bolt design on the chest, like his superhero alter-ego the Flash. The suit is composed of specific materials, with Bruce Wayne noting that it is constructed from the same silica-based quartz fabric employed by NASA to protect spaceships during re-entry from burning up. The suit is worn by Barry to protect him from the immense friction encountered when he runs, as well as being overall resistant to extreme temperatures. If Flash wears a suit not designed for a speedster, he will have to take breaks, to avoid building up too much charge in the suit.

Other equipment

  • Monkey: Barry Allen's beloved stuffed monkey, which he keep after his mother's death as a gift from her. He treat it with a lot of respect and got mad at his younger counterpart for treating it like a target shooting.






List of appearances
In chronological order:


  • In the comics, Bartholomew Henry Allen was a forensic scientist who was struck by a lightning bolt and fell into a coma. When he awoke, he could think and move at incredible speeds. After deciding to use his powers to become a hero, he created a red suit and became The Flash.
  • Originally, Barry's birth date was given as September 30, 1992 on his college ID card and May 2, 1983 on his driver's license, as shown in the Justice League art book. However, this was later changed in the Flash film where Barry's birth date would land in 1995.
    • Curiously, September 30 is just one day after Barry gets his powers.
  • The reason as to why Flash's run style looks so weird is because of loss of traction when he starts to run, making him look like he is gliding.
  • This is the first big-screen incarnation of the Flash.
  • Barry is the first person in the DC Extended Universe to coin the terms "Speed Force".
  • Barry is usually portrayed as a blond with blue eyes, but the DCEU version is black-haired with brown eyes.
  • Barry is stated to still be a college student when he joins the Justice League, making the Flash one of the youngest members, along with Cyborg.
  • Although his superhero alter ego "Flash" is seemingly never mentioned in dialogue in any of the films, he is mentioned by that name in Suicide Squad during the intro sequence of the film, as part of the file Amanda Waller has compiled about Digger Harkness, indicating that A.R.G.U.S. is the first to refer to him by that name.
  • The only people who know Barry's identity as the Flash, other than the members of both of the Justice Leagues, are Lex Luthor and Alfred Pennyworth.
  • Barry is Jewish, which he mentions when he describes a picture of himself to Bruce Wayne.
    • Coincidentally, his actor, Ezra Miller, is also Jewish.

  • Barry is right-handed, and, supposedly, can play the viola and is fluent in Sign Language.
    • Barry also mentioned a fluency in "Gorilla Sign Language", a reference to the Flash telepathic villain Gorilla Grodd.
  • Barry is a fan of Rick and Morty and the Back to the Future franchise.
  • Barry is virgin.
  • In Zack Snyder's Justice League, one of the names Barry comes up with as his superhero alter-ego is Lightning Lad. In DC Comics, Lightning Lad is the name of a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes, an organization of young heroes from the 30th Century.
  • The Flash makes a small cameo appearance in the hand-drawn "imaginary" adventures in the credits of Shazam!, racing against Darla Dudley in her superhero form.
  • Barry's usual breakfast order is peanut butter, bananas, raisins, honey and cheese on a roll, which is usually ready for him because he is habitually late for work.
  • Adam Brody would have played the Flash in the cancelled film Justice League: Mortal.
  • The first and last appearances of this Flash are in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom Special.
  • Chronologically, the first and last lines of Flash are "No honor among thieves, eh?" in Suicide Squad and "Wouldn't miss this for the world" in Blackout.
