Nora Allen (née Thompson[1]) was the wife of Doctor Henry Allen and mother of Barry Allen and Malcolm Thawne.

Nora was seriously hurt when the Allen's car was forced off the road by a young man named Jack Morgan.[2]. She was comatose for several weeks. Despite the serious risk of brain damage from the length of her coma, she eventually awoke and was able to make a full recovery.[3]. Shortly thereafter, Barry finally revealed to her his secret identity as the Flash.[4]

Nora passed away shortly after her son perished in the first Crisis. She and Henry were buried next to Barry.[1]

  • This version of Nora Allen, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • The The Flash: Rebirth series introduced a major retcon to the story of Nora Allen. See Nora Allen (New Earth) for her history following this retcon.
