The Flash is a member of the Justice League. Flash is not a typical character because there are six different characters who held that name – Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, Wally West, Walter West, Bart Allen and Jesse Chambers. Jesse Chambers is the only superhero woman who held that name. They admired each other, some of them were even related to one another. Flash is famous for developing supernatural speed. Most people accept that Flash is the fastest man living on Earth.

Flash has supernatural speed. He can travel at any speed he wanted but there are physical limits to developing extremely high speed. Flash can run extremely fast but still he recognizes different figures and places which are on his way. He sees everything perfectly clear and this skill is not influenced by developing extremely high speed. Besides that, Flash has superhuman stamina and supercharged brain activity. His mental abilities are also influenced by the speed, which means he thinks faster than everyone else. He is able to reed super fast and to learn things as fast as he read them. That means Flash is very clever due to the speed factor.

Flash is a fictional character created by DC Comics. The first Flash character received his powers under the effect of a radiation. He worked in a laboratory under an experiment about “how to purify hard water”. Unfortunately, he was very tired from the long hours at work and he fell asleep during the experiment. When he discovered his ability, he decided to invest his powers in helping people around the world.

Professor Zoom is an arch enemy of Flash. Eobard Thawne is the original name of Professor Zoom and he first appeared in “The Flash” Comics in 1963. This fictional character was created by John Broome and Carmine Infantino. Other enemies are The Trickster and Gorilla Grodd. DC’s New 52 has a new villain of Flash called Reverse Flash.

The year of creation of the Flash character is unknown because there are 6 different Flash’s characters. If we have to mention the year of the Flash creation, we have to talk about all the different Flash characters.


The Flash (or simply Flash) is the name of several superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, the original Flash first appeared in Flash Comics #1 (cover date January 1940/release month November 1939).


All incarnations of the Flash can move, think, and react at light speeds as well as having superhuman endurance that allows them to run incredible distances. Some, notably later versions, can vibrate so fast that they can pass through walls in a process called quantum tunneling, travel through time and can also lend and borrow speed. Speedsters can also heal more rapidly than an average human. In addition, most incarnations have an invisible aura around their respective bodies that protects them from air friction and the kinetic effects of their powers.


Jay Garrick was a college student in 1938 who accidentally inhaled heavy water vapors after taking a smoke break inside his laboratory where he had been working. Barry Allen is an assistant scientist from the Criminal and Forensic Science Division of Central City Police Department. Barry had a reputation for being very slow, deliberate, and frequently late, which frustrated his fiancée, Iris West. One night, as he was preparing to leave work, a freak lightning bolt struck a nearby shelf in his lab and doused him with a cocktail of unnamed chemicals. As a result, Barry found that he could run extremely fast and had matching reflexes.


The Flash has numerous rogues. These include Professor Zoom, Captain Cold, Gorilla Grodd, Captain Boomerang, Mirror Master, Weather Wizard, Godspeed, and Heat Wave.


The Flash has been a part of almost every DC hero team, including the Speedsters, Justice League, and the Justice Society of America.
