In episode 8 of season 3 in Arrow, The Brave and the Bold, when Oliver Queen is introducing Barry Allen to Captain Lance, Lance mistakes his name as Bart Allen. In the comics, Bart Allen, who is the sidekick of the second Flash and eventually becomes the Flash himself, is Barry's grandson.
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.
