The Flash™The Flash™, fastest man alive and founding member of the Justice League
The Flash™, or just Flash, is the name given to several characters from comic books published by DC Comics. The first incarnation appeared in Flash Comics in 1940. What they all have in common is their use of super-speed to fight against the forces of evil.
The Flash gained his amazing ability from a mysterious energy field known as Speed Force. This lightning speed is apparent in everything he does, from running to thinking, and is combined with superhuman levels of endurance. This phenomenal speed has given the Flash power to travel though time and even to other dimensions.
His achievements brought the Flash to the attention of Batman™, who recruited him as a founding member of Earth’s defenders, the Justice League. A familiar feature throughout the DC Universe, the character has appeared in numerous DC movies, video games, animations, live-action television series and children’s playsets.
