Barry Allen Flash

The Flash (Bartholomew Henry "Barry" Allen) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Barry Allen is the second and most recognized character known as the Flash. The character first appeared in Showcase#4 (October 1956), created by writer Robert Kanigher and penciler Carmine Infantino.[1] His name combines talk show hostsBarry Gray and Steve Allen.[2]

His death in 1985 in Crisis on Infinite Earths removed the character from the regular DC lineup for 23 years. His return to regular comics occurred subsequently in 2008 within the pages of Grant Morrison's Final Crisis and Geoff Johns' The Flash: Rebirthlimited series. In 2011, Allen played a key role of the crossover mini-series Flashpoint, which resulted in another reboot of the DC Comics continuity, known as "The New 52". Allen has appeared in various adaptations in other media, most notably in two live action television series based on the character portrayed by actors John Wesley Shipp and Grant Gustin.
