One of the most famous heroes of the DC Universe, The Flash is renowned as the fastest man alive, able to move at velocities exceeding the speed of light. The Flash, or Barry Allen, was once a forensic scientist when a lightning bolt struck his worktable through the window, spilling several beakers full of chemicals on him. Later, he became aware that the strange incident had endowed him with the ability to move, think and react at superhuman speeds.
The Flash’s powers allow him to tap into something called ‘The Speed Force’. It is an inter-dimensional energy that exists in all universes, and is responsible for powering all speedsters in the DC Universe. The Speed force allows his body to withstand moving at such extreme velocities without deteriorating or heating up.

The Flash can utilize his powers in a number of ways; he can use his extreme speed to power up his punches to hit harder, making up for his lack of physical strength as compared to other heroes. He can also vibrate his molecules to pass through solid objects and use the speed force to speed up his healing factor.
“After an electrical accident at his lab, scientist Barry Allen was left with the ability to move, think and react at super speeds. A member of the Justice League, The Flash uses his super speed to fight crime.”
