- Yeah, you could say I'm ready to hit the ground running.
- — The Flash src
After his mother was killed and the culprit never caught, Barry Allen dedicated himself to solving crimes as a forensic scientist. His single-mindedness left little time for anything else and kept him always running late until the day a mysterious lightning bolt struck and empowered him with the Speed Force. Able to run at practically the speed of light Allen is the fastest man alive - but is still running late to his appointments.
Flash was part of the heroes who stood up to fight the forces of Nekron and his army of Manhunters, making unlikely alliances with some of his usual enemies.
