Life is locomotion... if you're not moving, you're not living. But there comes a time when you've got to stop running away from things... and you've got to start running towards something, you've got to forge ahead. Keep moving. Even if your path isn't lit... trust that you'll find your way.

Bartholomew Henry "Barry" Allen is a forensic scientist in the Capital City Police department, the son of Henry and the late Nora Allen, the former placed in prison for the murder of the latter. While the evidence seems to indicate his father's guilt, Barry makes proving his father's innocence a priority. After the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator exploded, it caused a giant thundercloud to form and Barry was struck by lightning, falling comatose for nine months. When he woke up from his coma, Barry finds that he can run extremely fast and has matching reflexes. Using these super powers to learn the identity of his mother's killer while stopping other evil Metahumans and criminals, Barry continues the legacy of Jay Garrick as the Flash.

Death Battle Info (Fanon)

  • Full Name: Bartholomew Henry "Barry" Allen
  • Gender: Male
  • Affiliations: Justcie League, Flash Family; formerly Blue Lantern Corps, White Lantern Corps
  • Occupation: Forensic scientist

Barry's powers are connected to Speed Force, a mysterious energy field that he first accessed when exposure to the dark matter lightning altered his DNA to supercharge his cells with enormous amounts of electricity and likewise augmented his physiology, obtaining a lean-built frame to properly handle his new abilities. This causes Barry to move at speeds, first starting off to move at Mach 2. But as Barry taps into the Speed Force, Barry learns he can move at greater speeds to the point of moving pass the speed of light, and at his full potential, he can enter the speed force. He can vibrate parts of his body to disguise his voice by vocal cord distortion or forcibly expel toxins at a cellular level. In time, Barry learns to manipulate air flow on all levels and create vacuums, harness the electricity created from his speed to create lightning fastballs, and produce afterimages for distraction purposes. The Flash's most notable ability is going back in time, usually 24 hours in the past to avert a tragedy he failed to stop. But with the right tech, the Flash can travel further back in time.


  • Justice League Founder
  • Raced against Superman multiple times. Who is actually faster varies on the writer or is still up to debate: however in Flash's own words, the times he tied were for charity, and he has left Superman in the dust in other cases.
    • For the record, the fastest Superman has ever flew was faster than infinity. [1]
  • Has broken the time barrier and dimensional barrier
    • His ability to travel back in time created new timelines; including Flashpoint and New 52.
  • Outran his own death (Black Flash)
  • Like other Flashes, he can "steal" and "lend" speed, though he cannot have his speed stolen from him.
  • Claims that his ultimate attack, the Infinite Mass Punch, is able to strike with at least the force of a supernova.
  • This may not be his top speed, but its pretty fast.
  • Outran a teleporting god.
  • He was the one who broke of the nose of The Great Sphinx of Giza centuries ago [2]


  • Despite his speed he can still be hit by slower opponents or with his guard is down
  • Endurance and healing factor have clear limitations. Heavyweights like Doomsday and Superman have defeated the Flash quickly after landing only a few blows.
  • Younger depictions of Flash are slower than light speed as Barry didn't initially perfect his powers.
  • Has died in the Crisis on Infinite Earths
  • Screwed up the DC Universe in Flashpoint

  • Created the Speed Force with the accident that gave him his powers.
  • His own separate dimension dividing the megaverse from the Sphere of the Gods.
  • Since he created it, he should be able to tap into its abilities more than any other speedster.
  • Produces more and more of the Speed Force with every step he takes.

Super Speed (hoo boy)

Miscellaneous Speed Force Abilities

Accelerated Healing


Vortex Creation

Speed Stealing

Infinite Mass Punch

  • Vibrates his fist just below the speed of light - as close as possible - and throws a punch.

Entering the Speed Force

  • Barry is one of the only people to have survived entering the Speed Force.
  • Is now able to weaponize it.
  • Can bring people into the Speed Force and fight them in there.
    • When in the Speed Force, he is king, and he gains a massive boost in all of his abilities.

  • He was responsible for the flashpoint.
  • Super-metabolism; needs to eat a lot of food.
