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.
John Wesley Shipp plays Henry Allen, wrongfully convicted and sent to prison for the death of Nora Allen, who was actually murdered by The Reverse-Flash. Shipp voiced Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash in Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Requiem for a Scarlet Speedster! (2010)
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.
