After being struck by lightning, Barry Allen wakes up from his coma to discover he's been given the power of super speed, becoming the Flash, fighting crime in Central City.
The appearance of the Barry Allen Flash is considered to mark the beginning of the "Silver Age" of comic books, leading to a revival and update of many other classic superheroes of the 30s and 40s, including Green Lantern.
My name is Barry Allen and I'm the fastest man alive. When I was a child, I saw my mother killed by something impossible. My father went to prison for her murder. Then an accident made me the impossible. To the outside world, I'm just an ordinary ...
Whenever Barry uses his super speed from a standing start, there is a gust of wind that blows in the opposite direction (for instance, if he superspeeds to the left, there is an airburst that blows to the right). Engaging his super speed in this manner would cause a suction effect creating an airburst in the same direction he's moving in.
Each week's opening credits during the voiceover words "fight crime and find others like me" changes to show the previous week's metahuman encounter.
