Barry Allen src

This version of Barry Allen traveled back in time, like his New Earth counterpart, to save his mother from dying at the hands of the Reverse Flash and accidentally caused the Flashpoint. However, it failed in regaining his powers and died, dooming his universe.

Barry Allen was the a CSI from Central City whose mother died when he was a child while his father Henry was framed for her murder and was sent to jail.

After being hit by a lightning, Barry became the superhero The Flash. During his career, he became the protector of Central City and fought various supervillains, including Eobard Thawne, also known as the Reverse Flash, an evil speedster from the future who wanted to be like Barry but decided to be his greatest enemy.

At some point in time, he discovered that the his mother's murder was orchestrated by Thawne so Barry decided to run back in time and prevent her mother's murder. However, this caused a domino effect that changed the reality, causing himself to lose his powers and the world becoming a nightmare where the Aquaman and Wonder Woman ravaged and conquered half the planet.

In the new reality, Barry tried to contact Bruce Wayne but the hero discovered that Bruce died in Crime Alley instead of his father who survived and became the Flashpoint's Batman.

Convincing Thomas Wayne to be an alternate timeline's hero, they tried together to restore Barry's powers, replicating the incident that gave him his abilities in the first place, knowing that it was a life-or-death situation. Barry was hit again by lightning but unfortunately he didn't survived the experiment, much to the joy of his archenemy, Eobard Thawne, who had just arrived there, in the new reality.[1]

After his death, Thawne stole his legacy and became the Flash of the altered reality.[1]
