Quote1 You saved us, son. We're going home. I'm proud of you... Quote2
Don Allen src

Don Allen was a speedster, the son of Barry Allen and Iris West, and the father of Bart Allen.

Not long before the Crisis on Infinite Earths, Barry Allen and Iris West travelled forwards in time, to the 30th century, where they settled. There, they concieved a pair of twins: Don and Dawn Allen. After Iris gave birth, Barry was only able to spend a month with the children before he would be called back to the present day in order to help the forces of good in the Crisis. Tragically, he was seemingly slain in the conflict.

Over the next several years, Don and Dawn would grow to adulthood, inheriting their father's super-speed, becoming the Tornado Twins. Don would father Bart Allen, who would in turn one day travel to the present day alongside his grandmother, Iris.

Eventually, Don and Dawn would seemingly be lost in a battle with the Dominators. However, they were saved by Eobard Thawne, their father's greatest enemy. He used his abilities to taint them with the Reverse Speed Force, turning them to his side. He first unleashed the pair in a future version of Central City against an aged Flash[1]; then, he brought them back to the present with him, making them part of his Legion of Zoom.[2]

The Tornado Twins were then confronted by Impulse, Don's son. Bart convinced the two speedsters to stop fighting as they realized that Thawne used the Negative Speed Force to turn them against the Flash Family. Don and Dawn then started to fade, with Don using these last moments to tell his son that he was proud of him before going home.[3]

Don and Dawn would later be visited by their parents, who traveled to the 30th Century with the Cosmic Treadmill of the the Flash Museum. The Allen family had many adventures together before Barry and Iris tearfully returned to the present.[4]
