Latest TV series “The Flash” has taken the comic world by storm with the scarlet speedster making an entry on your TV. With so much happening on the show, we decided to share with you 12 amazing facts about almost everyone’s favorite superhero, The Flash. So without further ado lets get started!
1. The Flash is faster than Superman
Believe it or not, The Flash is actually faster than Superman and this has been proven in the comic book issue World’s Finest #198-199
2. The Flash is the founding member of Justice League
Our favorite superhero is one of the founding members of The Justice League along with Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
3. He can read super fast!
During one storyline Flash had to save a building from collapsing. Guess what he did? He read a whole book on architecture in a matter of seconds and repaired the entire building by his own! Crazy, right??
4. Using the speed force he can time travel
We have seen how timey whimey The Flash can get in the official TV series so no big surprise there. He can tap in to the speed force to manipulate time itself. How cool is that?!
5. The Flash is just a title, many people have become The Flash
Yes, you read that right! If you read the comic books you will find that there are many people who have assumed the identity of The Flash. Some of them are: Barry Allen, Jay Garrick, Wally West, Bart Allen and many more! There is even a female version of The Flash. Her name is Jessie Quick.
6. His nemesis is actually his reverse
The Flash’s arch nemesis is The Reverse Flash. If there is one thing we absolutely loved in the first season of this series was the villain, portrayed by Tom Cavanagh, Eobard Thawne disguised as Harrison Wells. The Reverse Flash is exactly the opposite of The Flash since he taps in to the negative speed force.
7. The speed force is an actual place!
It is a temporal field of pure energy which can be visited only by ones who can tap in to the speed force. The Flash has access to this infinite source of energy which helps him get his speed and thereby also helping him travel through time.
8. Barry Allen is the strongest Flash
Mirror mirror on the wall, Barry is the fastest of the all! Run, Barry, Run!
9. Jay Garrick was the first Flash
The Flash comics were started in January, 1940 which is regarded as the Golden Age of comics. In the origin story of Jay Garrick he was shown as a college student who got his powers through inhalation of hard water vapours.
10. Barry Allen dies
You can read about this in “Crisis on Infinite Earths”. In this issue, Barry Allen has to run fast to create a speed vortex in order to stop the villain, Anti Monitor, from an anti matter cannon. While doing so, Barry ran so fast that he disintegrated and died saving the world.
11. Using his speed he can punch at the speed of light!
Don’t mess with The Flash. Enough said!
12. He’s got a cosmic treadmill
With great speed, comes cool gadgets. And besides, a normal treadmill would be slower than walking for him anyways 😛
