This is a possible future of Earth-1 where the Crisis happened in 2024 and Barry Allen aka The Flash vanished fighting the Reverse Flash. A few years before his disappearance, he had a daughter with Iris West who was named Nora after his late mother.

History

Pre-Crisis

This timeline followed the same continuity of Post-Flashpoint Earth-1 until the night of the Enlightenment.[1]

Instead of being helped, the Flash of this timeline single-handedly defeated the over-powered Thinker but the Enlightenment caused the creation of various meta-humans, including David Hersch who was hit by a Lightning dagger which nullified dark matter-originated powers.

Some time later, calling himself Cicada, Hersch began a meta-human killing spree, starting with Floyd Belkin. In the course of years, various superheroes tried to capture him, including Green Arrow, the Legends and The League, but he was never caught.[2] Eventually, he became known as "the one that got away".[3]

At some point before 2024, Barry and Iris had a daughter, Nora who inherited the same powers of his father. S.T.A.R. Labs was converted into the museum to honor the Flash's deeds.

The Original Crisis

In 2024, the Crisis finally happened: the Flash, Green Arrow, Batwoman, Elongated Man, Laurel Lance[4] and other legendary heroes faced the Reverse Flash and his army of Shadow Demons while the skies turned red in all of the reality. In the end, the Flash and Reverse Flash vanished in a flash of light and Oliver Queen died in battle.[4]

Hurt by Barry's loss and afraid of the possibility of her following his father's superhero career, Iris implanted a power-dampening chip into Nora's neck in order to depower her so she was unaware of her abilities for most of her life.

In the following years, a metahuman called Red Death became a serial killer in Central City. At some point, Cicada also resurfaced, continuing his killing spree with a count of 152 known murdered metahumans but he somehow lost his weapon.

In 2034, the Reverse Flash came to his timeline but was defeated and imprisoned in Iron Heights, his powers blocked by Cicada's dagger.

At some point in time, Nora graduated at Central City University and joined CCPD as a forensic scientist like his father, working with her friend Lia Nelson.

The Rise of XS

In 2049, during a crime investigation, Nora found Speed Force traces that lead her to the Flash Museum where she was ambushed by the evil speedster Godspeed and sent to the hospital. There, the doctors extracted her power-dampening chip so she found her legacy as a speedster; trying to solve her investigation, she questioned Thawne who gave her some advice but her exuberance only led to Lia's death by Godspeed who was searching for Velocity 9.

Inspired by Trajectory's death, she understood that Godspeed was dying so he needed a way to stabilize his powers. Asking again Reverse Flash's help, she managed to defeat and arrest Godspeed; then, advised by Thawne, she went to the Time Vault where Gideon made her discover her legacy as the Flash's daughter and his last message before disappearing in Crisis.

This discovery angered Nora even more against her mother as she blaming her for lying to her for most of her life about his father and her abilities. Estranging from her mother, Nora started to trust his father's arch-enemy who teached her how to time travel and the time language[4] and became a superheroine called XS.[5]

Nora time traveled to her father's early years as a superhero, helping him in defeating DeVoe.[1] This caused some changes in reality as David Hersch was replaced by Orlin Dwyer as Cicada[2] and, after his disappearance, a new female Cicada appeared and travelled back on Earth-1.[6]

All of this events were discovered to be part of Thawne's plan to free himself from his prison and escape death. When Cicada's dagger was sent to the Mirrorverse and its power nullified, Thawne freed himself and ran on Earth-1, knowing that the timeline was to be erased along with Cicada II and Nora.[7]

Godspeed War Godspeed was shown to still exist in the Post-Crisis version of this timeline and assembled an army of impostors to run back in time and steal the Prime Barry's speed, but eventually he was defeated by Barry and the Team Flash.[10][11]

Magog's Invasion

At some point, David Reid aka Magog began recruiting criminals like Clayface, Kal-El, the Needle, Evil Eye and some Necrians to help him in his crusade against the Earth-Prime heroes, but eventually he and his army were defeated by Mia Queen, XS, Impulse, and the League.[12]

Star City 2040

Pre-Crisis

Post-Crisis

Canaries Arrowverse 001

The Canaries.

The events of Earth-Prime  #6 confirm that the Star City 2040 timeline and Nora's Future were merged by the Spectre into a single continuity in the Post-Crisis Multiverse. In the new continuity, Mia Queen and William Clayton grew up together with the rest of their family, so Mia never became a underground cage fighter and vigilante in this timeline, until she joined the Canaries.

John Diggle, Jr. never became Deathstroke and did not join the Deathstroke Gang, which not exist anymore until Trevor created it. J.J. also never killed Zoe Ramirez. Connor Hawke never joined the Knightwatch and became an addicted.

At some point, Helena Bertinelli adopted a daughter named Bianca. Star City and The Glades were never splitted, so that Rene Ramirez is the mayor of Star City. Dinah Drake was somehow time-displaced to this timeline some time after the funeral of Oliver Queen in 2020. After Mia becomes the new Green Arrow, the public suspects William has become his father's successor and someone kidnapped him.[13]

Star City 2041

In the possible future where Bianca Bertinelli was brutally murdered by the Deathstrokes, this event caused violent riots in Star City so that it becomes a ruined city by 2041.[13]

In this continuity, Mia Queen somehow managed to have her memories restored, became once again Green Arrow and the only hero to face the rampant crime.[13]

Notes

  • This future was born as a consequence of Eobard Thawne altering the timeline the night of Nora Allen's murder.
    • In the original continuity, Nora West-Allen didn't exist as Barry actually had a daughter named Dawn.

Trivia

  • The destruction of this reality severely impacted the Multiverse' fate as it shifted the beginning of the Crisis from 2024 to 2019 and changed some important events, like the liberation of the Anti-Monitor, the presence of the Reverse Flash and the Barry Allen's disappearance.
  • Pre-Crisis Nora mentions a superhero team called "The League" as existing after the original Crisis in this reality. It is clearly a reference to the Justice League from the comics.
    • The Justice League of this Future makes its first full appearance in Earth-Prime #6.
