The Turtle is a legacy name used by enemies to the Flash. The original Turtle was an enemy to Jay Garrick during the Golden Age. His crimes used slow deliberate planning to fight the Flash's speed, and he would later return to plague Wally West. During a lab accident he gained the ability to drain speed from those around him. He was also a member of the Secret Society of Super-Villains. The Turtle Man is his successor, an enemy to Barry Allen who commits crimes that involve slowness. They have teamed up together in the past to collaborate on crimes. The Turtle was created by Gardner Fox and Martin Naydel, first appearing in All-Flash #21. (1945)
