"Barry" Allen ("バリー"・アレン, "Barī" Aren), is a police scientist working as a forensics specialist from Central City, and a superfast speedster and long-time founding member of the Justice Avengers. He is infamous among his co-workers at CCPD for being slow.

He is called the "Fastest Man Alive", having been granted the ability to move at super speed after being exposed to lightning-charged chemicals, the police chemist is the second person to take up the name and mantle of his childhood idol, the original Flash.

Powers and Abilities[]


  • Speed Force Conduit: Speed force conduits possess a connection to the Speed Force, a cosmic force that allows its users to push the boundaries that keep time and space. As a conduit of the Speed Force, all aspects of their physiology are accelerated and enhanced. His speed allows him to vibrate through objects, creates explosions through friction, and, when he's at top speed, manipulate time and bridge dimensions.
    • Accelerated Healing: By having a connection to the speed force, every speed force conduit has an incredibly fast healing factor and can heal from most injuries in seconds and devastating injuries in minutes.
    • Enhanced Senses: The Speed Force enhances the speedster's senses, allowing them to perceive and process thoughts faster than the normal person.
    • Molecular Acceleration:
      • Phasing: Speed Force conduits can tap into the Speed Force to vibrate their molecules in a way to achieve intangibility for short bursts, allowing them to phase through objects.
    • Time Travel:
    • Dimensional Travel:
    • Electrokinesis: Flash generates large amounts of Speed Force lightning that he is able to charge his punches and kicks with.
      • Electro-Blast: Flash can project a small burst of lightning from his chest.
    • Speed Force Aura: The Speed Force manifests an aura around the speedster and whatever they are carrying, protecting them from adverse effects of their speed, such as friction with the air.
      • Superhuman Durability: The Speed Force Aura also protects speedsters from kinetic impacts, which in turn, makes them much more durable and resistant to injury than any normal human.
    • Superhuman Stamina: The Speed Force grants its conduits with a great increase of stamina, allowing them to fight or run much longer than the average person. Although a great increase, it is not unlimited.
    • Superhuman Speed: The universal factor of being a Speed Force conduit grants its user with imperceptible amounts of speed. All powers that conduits possess derives from their speed.
      • Superhuman Agility: The speedster's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to superhuman levels. This allows them to easily maneuver while moving at superhuman speed.
      • Superhuman Reflexes: In conjunction with their enhanced senses, The speedster's reflexes are heightened immesurably, allowing them to dodge or react faster than normal.
    • Vortex Creation: Speed Force conduits are able to create vortices of air by running in circles or rotating their extremities at super-speed. These vortices can be used for a number of effects.

Notes & Trivia[]

  • Barry Allen first appeared in Showcase #4 (October, 1956).
  • Barry's first super villain was "Turtle Man"; a hoodlum who idolized the super villain, "The Turtle", and built gadgets to mimic his idol's slow powers.
  • Barry and Iris' children in the 30th Century, Don and Dawn Allen, would inherit their father's super speed and become the Tornado Twins. Don himself, would eventually marry Meloni Thawne, whose family had been mortal enemies of the Allens for centuries, and they would have a son, Bart Allen, who would eventually travel to the 21st Century to become the second Kid Flash. Dawn would eventually marry the politician Jeven Ognats and have a daughter, Jenni Ognats, who would become a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes as the superhero XS.
  • Barry Allen wears a spring-loaded ring which, when opened, releases his costume in an instant. The costume itself is made of pure energy created by the Speed Force.
  • Early in his career, Barry learned that he could travel through time by setting up specific molecular vibrations. By halting these vibrations, he could return to his home era. To help with precision, he built what he called the Cosmic Treadmill.
  • As a hobby, Barry liked to research trivia and would occasionally recite them to other people; dubbing them "Flash Facts".
  • To protect their secret identities as two of the fastest men on Earth, Barry insisted that he and Wally be late for everything while in their civilian identities.
  • Amongst all of the detectives in the super hero community, Batman appreciated Barry Allen's optimistic outlook; a man who saw his work as protecting the innocent, instead of damning the guilty.
