What would it be like to wake up one day and realize that you were a superhero? Ask Barry.

Barry Allen was an ordinary young man. He was smart, he had a job at the police department, and he liked a pretty girl named Iris West. Life was pretty normal - at least, there were no super villains running around. But one day, everything changed.

A lightning bolt and various other factors, ranging from unnamed chemicals to a nuclear reactor meltdown, suddenly allowed Barry to access the Speed Force. He could now run, think, and react at impossibly fast speeds. Soon, he was using his newfound powers to protect the people of Central City, with the help of his friends and their scientific lab. Barry had become a superhero - The Flash.
