"I'm, also the Flash."
―Flash to Flash[src]

Bartholomew Henry "Barry" Allen is an alternate version of the Flash from Earth-Prime. During the Crisis, he met his Earth-1 counterpart via the Speed Force.


Early Life[]

Barry Allen, in the year 2014, gained access to the Speed Force and, wearing a special suit to protect his body and identity, became the well-known hero the Flash in his world.[1]

Meeting Barry Allen of Earth-1[]

The Barrys Shake Hands

Barry meets his multiversal counterpart

Barry appeared in the Speed Force, in an attempt to escape the Vanishing Point, in what appeared to be a memory of S.T.A.R. Labs, accidentally coming across Earth-1's version of himself in the process. Confused, Earth-1's Barry asked the other Barry where he was and what was happening, to which Barry said he did not know. The Earth-1 Barry, in a moment of false realization, then asked Barry if his suit was cosplay and if he wanted a selfie, to which Barry politely said no, exclaiming that he was also the Flash. Earth-1 Barry was confused by this name that Barry had given himself, but quickly took a liking to it.

Barry said that the situation was complicated, and 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 the two of them out. Barry said that their encounter should be impossible now, to which Prime Barry asked what he meant. Barry was taken aback by Prime Barry's ignorance, but before he could explain the situation any further, Prime Barry faded away while saying that he had told Victor this was possible, likely referring to the multiverse. Lost and confused, Barry considered what this could possibly mean.[1]

The Red[]

At one point in his career, Barry, as the Flash, ran through The Red and unknowingly knocked Gar Logan into another portal.[2]


Barry is knowledgable, as he understands the multiverse fairly well, but not all knowing about the multiverse or the speed force as proven by his inability to predict the Time Jump he made at the Vanishing Point. Barry is also friendly, greeting his counterpart and introducing himself to him, as well as complimenting him, all while distressed.[1]

Powers and Abilities[]


  • Speed Force Conduit: Barry can access the Speed Force, which grants him many speed-based superhuman abilities, including but not limited to:
    • Superhuman Speed: Barry can move at exceptional speeds, which causes him to crackle with the lightning of the Speed Force. Unlike Earth-1's Flash, this Barry's lightning is yellow instead of blue, likely due to the different vibrational frequencies of their separate universes.
    • Interdimensional Travel: Barry's speed allows him to travel across the dimensional barrier into the Speed Force.


  • Flash Suit: Barry wears a special suit to hide his identity and protect himself as he runs.
  • Golden Boots: While running, Barry possessed a pair of golden boots that accelerated his speed.



Behind the Scenes[]

  • This is the fourth live-action portrayal of Barry Allen, following Rod Haase, John Wesley Shipp, and Kenny Johnston.
  • The idea of including this version of the Flash in The Flash was considered by Director Andy Muschietti but it was ultimately decided to leave out his cameo in the near-final version of the film shown to press in April of 2023, as the film needed to be trimmed down from the 4-hour assembly cut.[3]
