About The Flash (Barry Allen)
The victim of a lab accident, Central City Police assistant forensic investigator Barry Allen was made into The Flash when lightning struck him and exposed him to deadly lab chemicals. Thrust into a coma, Barry awoke with the ability to travel at superhuman speeds. His new powers make him hopeful that he could finally solve a personal mystery that has plagued him since he was a boy, the murder of his mother.

Following his father’s wrongful conviction for the heinous crime, The Flash made it his life’s mission to find the truth and exonerate his father. Becoming a skilled forensic investigator along the way gives him access to information that brings justice for his mother, closer and closer through the years. He has turned the accident that gave him his powers into a weapon of truth. The Flash will not rest until he solves this crime.
