Secret Identity
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_112890b3
comment
Secret Identity: played with from time to time. Wally's identity as the Flash goes public for a long time, something that eventually comes back to bite him. He has the Spectre erase everyone's knowledge of it. Jay Garrick doesn't wear a mask, but he's constantly vibrating his face to keep his features blurry, a fact established all the way back in the Silver Age. No wonder the crooks freak out when he appears.

Supernatural Gold Eyes
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_1186fcb5
comment
Supernatural Gold Eyes: A quirk of the Thawne bloodline, though not unique. Again, another character marker for Bart (who is part of said bloodline); that's why his goggles are the same yellow shade, to hide his eye color (although that hair should've busted his identity right then and there...). Unlike most examples, it serves to enhance his idealistic personality, and Meloni's nickname for him — "Sunshine" — sums it up best.

Superheroes Stay Single
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_11cc78ff

Superheroes Stay Single: Averted with all the Flashes except Bart. Jay had a steady girlfriend for his entire solo series, and they got married while "off page" between the Golden and Silver Ages, though post-Crisis comics would set their wedding in 1947. They remained married for over 60 years. Barry married Iris West, and Wally eventually married Linda Park. The New 52 has erased all of those relationships, though as of Rebirth, Wally remembers his time with Linda even if she doesn't.

Not-So-Harmless Villain: Eobard Thawne a.k.a. Professor Zoom was often seen as a relic of the Silver Age until he was revamped in The Flash: Rebirth and Flashpoint, which saw both his superpowers and his Ax-Craziness ramped up considerably to the point that he's now seen in the same standing as Lex Luthor and The Joker.

Comic-Book Time
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_1989b0c
comment
Comic-Book Time: Averted with Jay Garrick, who has generally aged in real time. His final Golden Age solo story has his girlfriend Joan musing about 8 years having passed since she found out that Jay was the Flash, which is about the amount of real world time that had passed since the publication of Jay's first issue. When Jay reappeared in "The Flash of Two Worlds", he has grey hair and muses about getting older. He's shown to be older as time passes, though he usually appears middle-aged rather than old, with the exception of Zero Hour where he is aged by Extant to his true age. He goes back to looking middle-aged after that though. In Flash: Rebirth, the Reverse-Flash mentions that he must be close to hitting the century mark. Close but no cigar. Assuming Jay graduated from college at the age of 21 in 1940, that would put his birth around 1919, and thus he'd be around 90 years old when the events of Flash: Rebirth occurred.

Death by Origin Story
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_1aa76d29
comment
Death by Origin Story: This was one of the reasons that Barry Allen stayed dead once his former Kid Sidekick Wally West came into his own as his successor. That's been undone now, though. "The Return of Barry Allen" storyline played with this by having Barry seemingly return to life, leaving Wally happy about Barry's return but conflicted about being back in his shadow (particularly since his speed had been reduced at the same point when Barry died leaving him the slower and less competent Flash). He had to deal with these issues in order to defeat Barry when he turned out to be a delusional Professor Zoom.

Heterosexual Life-Partners
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_1dfbbf31
comment
Heterosexual Life-Partners: They all have one... Three out of the four are paired with a Green Lantern. Jay and Alan Scott, Barry and Hal Jordan, and Wally and Kyle Rayner are all Flash/Green Lantern Life Partners. Bart has Tim Drake. Wally is also closely linked to Dick Grayson, who was the best man at his wedding. They also play these relationships for all the comedic value they can get, Barry and Green Arrow have a sort of rivalry over Hal, as do Bart and Superboy over Tim. When she meets Kyle Rayner for the first time, Jenni Ognats mentions the enduring Flash-Lantern partnership and uses it as an excuse to flirt him up. As a nod to this, The Multiversity features Red Racer, the Flash of Earth-36, who is gay and in a relationship with his reality's Green Lantern.

Breaking the Fourth Wall: Jay would occasionally shill his own book to readers, both in his own comics and in All-Star. He also had the occasional speed records page in which he related then-current speed records and other facts to the reader. In a way, these were the original "Flash facts".

Aborted Arc
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_23698fa8
comment
Aborted Arc: Back in Messner-Loebs' run, Wally's surrogate father figure Mason Tollbridge had a teased relationship with Joan Garrick when Jay was believed dead, and the two received significant panel time together. This went out the window when Mason married a New Old Flame and he subsequently disappeared completely, with his entire role as Wally's mentor/surrogate father being replaced by the recently-revived Jay Garrick when Mark Waid took over. Early during Geoff Johns' run, Detective Jared Morillo was stabbed by Cicada's blade, granting him his similar speed-derived Healing Factor. This continues to be a major secret of his that he only shares with Fred Chyre, and they indicate that he's now connected to Cicada mentally. This plot never goes anywhere, however, as Morillo is Demoted to Extra when Wally's identity becomes a secret again. Iris West and Fred Chyre were shown to have a budding relationship developing, after Iris adopts Fred's godson before he could and the two bond while taking care of them. Besides Wally's confused response, this also goes out the window when Wally's identity is erased. After the identity erasing, Wally becomes suspect of a criminal investigation when he forgets to finish repairing Ashley Zolomon's brakes, nearly killing her in a car crash (at the same time, Linda had walked out on Wally over the identity erasing, and with no one to vouch for her whereabouts, the police suspect Wally snapped and killed her). This plot got significant build-up, but after Wally and Ashley have a heart-to-heart and Linda returns, it never comes up and Morillo and Chyre all but completely disappear. It definitely looked like something major was going to go down with Wally's kids, but then the New 52 happened and the entire family went MIA. Artist Ethan van Sciver later clarified in his Flash: Rebirth commentary in his Youtube channel that Geoff Johns was planning to keep Irey as Impulse while making Jai the new version of the Turtle, a minor Silver Age villain who can drain speed. Rebirth teased a possible alliance between the Silver and Modern Age Reverse-Flashes. Again, Flashpoint happened, and it was all Thawne's doing; there's been no sign of Hunter Zolomon ever since.

Related in the Adaptation: Live Action Adaptations just love making Jay and Barry relatives. In The Flash (1990), they're brothers. In The Flash (2014), Jay is the Alternate Self of Barry's father from Earth-3. It remains to be seen if the DC Extended Universe will follow suit.

Irisless Eye Mask of Mystery
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_28429e5c
comment
Irisless Eye Mask of Mystery: The Flash is sometimes an extremely rare subversion — his eyes were originally drawn normally under that mask, and this has been mostly consistent between the various Legacy Characters who have taken up the Flash mantle, though Wally once commissioned a version of the suit that had them, after Vandal Savage destroyed all the originals he had left from Barry. He kept it for several years, until he figured out how to create a speed force-based version of the suit which lacked them. His design in the DC Animated Universe plays this trope straight the whole time.

Technically speaking, Wally's nemesis Hunter Zolomon, (aka "Zoom") is faster than him, since Hunter manipulates time itself and thus can move himself or others through time on a scale even Wally can't keep up with.

Played with. Peek-a-Boo is an anti-villain, forced out of her job, and abandoning her education and her future to take care of her father. Her powers involve her unintentionally teleporting and accidentally destroying things. Her last ditch effort to save her father is to steal an organ he needs for a transplant, but the Flash (Wally) stops her and she is arrested. After that she is labeled a rogue and ostracized forever, originally hoping to be a hero, but after all that ends up being a villain instead. In the end Wally was the one who pushed her down this path, but as Wolfe points out she broke the law, and the organ recipient would have died if it hadn't been for him.

Personality Powers Subverted with Jay and Barry, who are generally slow and methodical. However, as a young man Jay was fun-loving and mischevious, often "having a little fun" with friends and villains alike with his super speed. Played mostly straight with Wally, and taken right to the extreme with Impulse!Bart, who'd just run blindly into everything. Barry, since coming back to life, has been significantly more like Bart and Wally, which is noted by Hal Jordan during Blackest Night.

Clap Your Hands If You Believe
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_4dbd3706
comment
Clap Your Hands If You Believe: In the August 1966 issue, Barry Allen starts to fade away from existence once a villain unleashes a ray that causes everyone to not believe he exists. Everyone except a little orphan girl he had helped before forgets that he really exists until he and the orphan girl start a massive letter writing campaign to force people to remember The Flash. This issue is somewhat prescient considering that the DCU contains an actual comic book limbo where characters (often those who haven't appeared in books for quite some time in the real world) go to when people start to forget their stories.

Early Installment Weirdness: In his origin story, Jay seems willing and able to kill, particularly when it comes to Sieur Satan, the leader of the Faultless Four. In fact, he seems to purposefully scare the villain and drive him to his death via a car wreck. This side of Jay is never seen again as he becomes much more of a playful, prankster type figure.

Super Speed
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_5768d31
comment
Super Speed: Obviously. Flash-type speedsters are the fastest beings in the universe, full stop. Of course, running at superluminal speed doesn't come without risks; the faster you run, the higher the chance there is at being absorbed by/merging with the Speed Force, which is why they tend to keep to "normal" supersonic speeds (~Mach 10 or so).

Comic Books Are Real: Barry Allen's first appearance in Showcase has him reading Flash Comics with Jay Garrick on the cover, right before the lightning strike gives him his super speed. Later on of course he actually meets Jay, so what was real in Jay's world appeared in comic book form in Barry's world.

Required Secondary Powers: All the Flashes have an invisible aura around their bodies that protects them from air friction, inertia, etc, as they move at high speed. And that's just the beginning. Look at what they can do with the Speed Force, and try to figure out how their powers work.

Big Eater: Bart will eat anything and everything that won't hurt him, and maybe some things that would. Unless it's raw seafood. Before the introduction of the Speed Force, speedsters had to consume huge amounts of food to keep their metabolisms in check. Nowadays, they don't, but many writers tend to forget this. Lampshaded when Wally orders a gigantic burger and Linda points out that he doesn't have to eat like that anymore: "I don't have to; I want to".

Heel–Face Turn: The Flash was one of the first comics to attempt this seriously, and at some point, almost every Silver Age Rogue had attempted to go legit, to varying degrees of success. This was Retconned to be the work of the Top, however, who gleefully undid it all during the Rogue War. It's implied that two of the Rogues, Pied Piper and the Trickster, legitimately went straight, though Top's meddling blinded Trickster to the fact that being on the right side of the law didn't mean he was in the right.

Heroic Sacrifice: Common in the Flash mythos. Barry Allen's classic sacrifice in Crisis on Infinite Earths. It even stuck for a while. Wally West almost kills himself attempting to pull Superboy-Prime into the Speed Force, but certainly managed to finish off his tenure as the mainline Flash save for a brief interlude between Bart and Barry. Jenni Ognats, Bart's cousin and Barry's other grandchild, was heavily insinuated by the Time Trapper in the Legends of the Dead Earth annuals to be destined to eventually follow Barry's example and sacrifice her own life to save the universe during a future crisis. Of course that was two or three reboots ago, now.

Brought Down to Normal
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_66ea7e5c
comment
Brought Down to Normal: In his final solo Golden Age adventure, Jay Garrick was Brought Down to Normal by Dr. Clariss, a former college professor at Jay and Joan's old school who had discovered how the Flash got his speed. Clariss had not only worked out how to recreate a form of the hard water formula and gain speed himself (albeit temporary speed compared with Jay's permanent version), but also to reverse the process for Jay who became very slow as a result. Thankfully Jay was able to restore his speed by story's end and defeat the villain. Wally West did this to himself in the early issues of his post-Crisis series. His eventual lack of any super-speed at all for several issues was due to his feeling guilty about how he used his speed and not living up to his idealized image of Barry Allen.

Everybody Smokes: In his Golden Age series, Jay Garrick is sometimes shown to smoke cigarettes. Given the era that the books were produced in, the 1940s, this would not be unusual. In his re-told origin story in All-Flash #1, Jay even takes a smoke break during the experiment that ultimately gives him his super-speed! His girlfriend Joan also smokes. Jay once tracks down a car she's in because she threw a cigarette out the window. He found it and knew it was her by the rare European brand she favored.

Noble Demon: The Rogues. They not only have a code of conduct, but don't allow people to take up another Rogue's identity if the current holder is still alive and don't grant membership just because you've taken up the mantle of a deceased Rogue. In fact, they've been shown to outright stop in the middle of a crime wave because of an unrelated death with ties to the superhero community, have walked away from at least one Villain Team-Up because they weren't interested in taking over the world, and will defend Central City alongside the Flash if need be.

Put on a Bus
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_754df088
comment
Put on a Bus: Has happened to every single Flash at one point or another, for varying reasons. Jay disappeared when super-hero comics fell out of favor at the end of the Golden Age. Barry was killed off during the Crisis. Wally vanished to make way for Bart, then came back when Bart's series failed to catch on, only to fade into the background when Barry Allen came back. The New 52 wrote Wally out entirely, made Barry the sole Flash, and recreated Jay as an alternate universe equivalent. And now Rebirth may change all of that yet again. Most creative changes tend to do away with new supporting characters in favour of new ones. Mason Tollbridge, Chunk, Connie, and Wally's parents completely disappeared when Mark Waid took over from Messner-Loebs, with only Linda and Piper sticking around. When Geoff Johns left, Fred Chyre and Jared Morillo left too. When the New 52 happened, Irey, Jai, and the Flash family all disappeared. From New 52 to Rebirth, almost every supporting cast member disappeared when the creative team's changed, with only Williamson's run keeping any (Wallace, Iris, and Singh). Mark Waid's initial run is the only one that didn't lose anyone when other writers took over (albeit, with Jesse and Max getting something of a Demoted to Extra treatment).

It Began with a Twist of Fate: Jay Garrick, the original Flash gets his superpowers when he falls asleep in a lab, accidentally drops a bottle to the floor, and inhales the vapors thus released. Barry Allen, the next Flash, originally got his powers from a similar lab accident, though this was later retconned so that the origin of his powers is his time-traveling future self.

Swiss-Army Superpower
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_787a34e7
comment
Swiss-Army Superpower: The Speed Force grants Flash-type speedsters an amazing amount of powers... Photographic Memory: Only Bart has the true, "permanent" form; the others can only retain it temporarily. Healing Factor: Barry is nigh-unkillable at the peak of his powers, being able to remain conscious and deliberately reassemble himself molecule by molecule even if he's been disintegrated. In other words, he has "complete control over his molecules," as mentioned every third comic or so back in The Silver Age of Comic Books, and is thus capable of reversing pretty much any sort of attempt to induce Power Incontinence on him. Considering the things he can undo with this power, mere regeneration is simple. One has to assume that this same ability is what's kept Jay Garrick exceptionally hale and hearty for a man who's pushing 90 years old. Super Strength Infinite Mass Punch: explained by the Theory of Relativity. Though a literal infinite mass punch is only possible for them due to the Speed Force and their aura's allowing them to ignore inertia and any nitpicky "Laws of Physics" that would get in the way. His target, on the other hand, had super speed that didn't derive from the Speed Force, and thus felt every bit of the effects of a ballistic path from South Dakota to the Serengeti. In The Silver Age of Comic Books, Barry Allen occasionally karate-chopped his way through concrete and steel with a single blow. Being able to move his hand at near-light speed made it pretty easy; what was amazing was that the impact didn't shatter his own bones. Speed Lend/Steal (from The Other Wiki): Perhaps his most versatile new power; because the Speed Force governed all motion, Wally could rob objects of their kinetic energy, motion, or momentum — for example, bullets in flight or turning a supervillain into a statue — and use the energy to accelerate himself even faster. He could similarly lend speed to inanimate objects or allies, enabling them to temporarily travel nearly as fast as himself. Bart Allen's future self is shown to also have this ability in the Teen Titans "Titans Tomorrow" story arc. Speed control: if you think you can move that fast, you can. Hammer Space Constructs Time Travel: Barry Allen needed the "cosmic treadmill" to time travel. However, during the Golden Age, Jay Garrick was capable of doing this without the aid of technology by exceeding the speed of light. Shield Flight (Johnny and Jesse Quick only) DCAU!Flash tried that in the Justice League Unlimited episode "I Am Legion". Good enough to not die from a high altitude fall, but maneuverability is less than stellar. Wally also used a similar method once in the regular comics to save a flight attendant who had — again — fallen from a plane. Interestingly, this story also indirectly pointed out why Flashes can't really use their abilities to fly like you'd expect - the Required Secondary Powers that prevents friction from affecting them means that they just can't get enough "purchase" on the air to do much more than slow themselves down. An ability Bart would do anything to get. One would wonder why when his current abilities are much more useful; probably representative of his free-spirited personality. Barry!Flash couldn't fly, exactly, but he could move his feet quickly enough to create a cushion of air, allowing him to fall from any height and land safely. He could also run straight up the side of a building. He doesn't seem to have ever thought of combining the two to launch himself on a ballistic trajectory (essentially flight of the "single bound" variety). ESP Speed scouts: Impulse gained the ability to create Speed Force clones of himself in the Dark Tomorrow story arc (#73-75); they have his personality, and he also absorbs their memories once they're done. One of them was killed during the Our Worlds at War crossover, and the psychic backlash sent him into a coma; he was eventually forced to use them again during World Without Young Justice. This ability is apparently now forgotten since we don't see it after that, or Bart is still reluctant to use them. Negate Anti-Life Equation... somehow. That was probably more Power of Love than anything to do with the speed force. Considering what we learn later on (assuming it one of the things they selectively kept) about Piper's powers, it could partially be acquired immunity. Self-molecular control Generally used for intangibility and phasing. The most dangerous use? Literal disintegration. As in, atoms scattered all over with no hope of reassembling them. Both Bart and Wally have threatened to use this, but haven't actually done so. Oh yeah, and using itself as a inter-dimensional prison.

Back in Messner-Loebs' run, Wally's surrogate father figure Mason Tollbridge had a teased relationship with Joan Garrick when Jay was believed dead, and the two received significant panel time together. This went out the window when Mason married a New Old Flame and he subsequently disappeared completely, with his entire role as Wally's mentor/surrogate father being replaced by the recently-revived Jay Garrick when Mark Waid took over.

Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In one of Jay's first adventures where he fights something other than gangsters, he runs across giant gila monsters in Canada created by mad science and co-opted by gangsters to... rob banks. Never mind that they could have sold the formula that created the giant lizards or sold the lizards themselves.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_7fbb2a3
comment
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Played with. Peek-a-Boo is an anti-villain, forced out of her job, and abandoning her education and her future to take care of her father. Her powers involve her unintentionally teleporting and accidentally destroying things. Her last ditch effort to save her father is to steal an organ he needs for a transplant, but the Flash (Wally) stops her and she is arrested. After that she is labeled a rogue and ostracized forever, originally hoping to be a hero, but after all that ends up being a villain instead. In the end Wally was the one who pushed her down this path, but as Wolfe points out she broke the law, and the organ recipient would have died if it hadn't been for him. The Flashpoint timeline, and subsequent New 52 reboot, can largely be attributed to Barry trying to save his mother from dying when he was a kid.

Logical Weakness
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_83641c73
comment
Logical Weakness: as stated in the Story-Breaker Power section, Super Speed of the type granted by the speed force to speedsters is absurdly broken given that even the slowest speedsters move so fast normal people are statues by comparison. As such, the most powerful speedsters like Barry, Wally, or Thawne have several weaknesses that keep them from being invincible. In the case of the morally upright speedsters like the Flash, it's their restraint and dedication to being heroes and helping people that limits them and can be used against them as they will hold back and try never to do serious or permanent damage to their opponents and will prioritize saving people over catching the bad guys. With evil speedsters like Thawne or Savitar, their insanity and egomania is often used against them as these flaws make them overconfident and careless not the mention guys like Thawne are TheSadist and never end it when they could giving the good guys the chance to turn things around. Also, aside from speed, most speedsters are only human in terms of physical attributes. While they have a passive kinetic field around them that protects them while they run (this is why speedsters aren't pulped when they hit something at high speed) they are vulnerable while standing still and off guard. While they may have Super Reflexes, that doesn't help if they don't know or see an attack is incoming. Since speedsters only have normal human senses several villains have used things like illusions, invisibility, or attacks inperceptable to normal people against them. Likewise, since most speedsters shown are human then they are vilnerable to a toxic environment, pathanogens, or poisons. While a speedster has a Healing Factor, it's more like accelerated healing and not full regenration. This also means that they can be permanently crippled due to injury depending on how they are hurt. Enemies that can attack from a distance with insubstantial attacks (like a psychic assault) can also be effective as would attacks that cause a wide area of destruction like explosions or powerful soundwaves.

Story-Breaker Power: As his maximum speed climbs to the upper levels of insanity, he actually starts to run into a lot of the same problems as Superman. How does anything challenge someone who can think and react thousands of times faster than even the fastest person? Writers have repeatedly commented that an intelligently written speedster on the Flash's level should be completely unbeatable.

Willfully Weak: An interesting example where Wally doesn't really realize that he's holding himself back. For years his speed would come and go, and he was limited to two or three times the speed of sound when as a kid he was just as fast as Barry or Jay. It turns out that even though he took Barry's costume and identity to honor him, he was afraid that if he was as good as Barry that he would genuinely replace him and Barry would be forgotten. Once this was pointed out to him by Max Mercury, Wally was able to work past his self-imposed limitations and regain his full speed again.

Your Cheating Heart: In the early Mike Baron issues Wally's series, Wally has an affair with married scientist Tina McGee, and she even moves in with him for awhile. Admittedly, her husband Jerry wasn't quite himself at the time, having experimented on himself to gain super strength and speed and nearly lost his sanity in the process. He does recover, and Tina eventually leaves Wally and goes back to her husband. Wally even becomes friends with the two of them later on.

Wham Episode: The Blitz storyline, which had two years of continuity behind it, leading to Wally's personal Big Bad, a disturbingly easy Death of a Child, and arguably the most shocking Face–Heel Turn since Terra in Teen Titans. Johns laid out every piece of evidence given out as proof that this was always coming. The introduction comic ends with Wally's close friend, Hunter Zolomon, realizing that he's also capable of moving at superspeed. This, coupled with his irrational belief that Wally wasn't being heroic enough, led him to scratch away a paper with his name on it, leaving only the name "Zoom".

Changing Clothes Is a Free Action Simply because he's so damn fast. At one point after he's brought back to life, Green Arrow goes around collecting valuable possessions of his from their hiding spots and notes that the Flash gave all the Justice Leaguers special rings that could hold their costumes for swift changing, but also notes that he was the only one who could use it. Wally would later make his outfit out of the speed force itself. All he had to do was access his powers and it would come on.

The third and current Kid Flash is half black and half white. Avery Ho, as mentioned above, is Chinese-American and works as a super-speedster for the Justice League of China.

Healing Factor: Barry is nigh-unkillable at the peak of his powers, being able to remain conscious and deliberately reassemble himself molecule by molecule even if he's been disintegrated. In other words, he has "complete control over his molecules," as mentioned every third comic or so back in The Silver Age of Comic Books, and is thus capable of reversing pretty much any sort of attempt to induce Power Incontinence on him. Considering the things he can undo with this power, mere regeneration is simple. One has to assume that this same ability is what's kept Jay Garrick exceptionally hale and hearty for a man who's pushing 90 years old.

And I Must Scream
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_a8a04f6f
comment
And I Must Scream: In a move that seems very unlike the easy-going Wally West we've come to know, he subjects Inertia (clone of Bart, a reverse-Impulse, if you will) to an eternal punishment. Rather than simply outright killing him, he uses the Speed Force to slow Inertia down physically to such a degree, that the simple act of blinking would take him hundreds of years. To make the punishment worse, Inertia could still think and see in real time, frozen in the middle of a sprint, and forced to stare endlessly at images of Bart Allen, whom he had previously killed. Wally describes it as being "forced to stare, with eyes that take a hundred years to blink... at the ghost of the man he could never be."

Super Strength
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_a8c6a317
comment
Super Strength Infinite Mass Punch: explained by the Theory of Relativity. Though a literal infinite mass punch is only possible for them due to the Speed Force and their aura's allowing them to ignore inertia and any nitpicky "Laws of Physics" that would get in the way. His target, on the other hand, had super speed that didn't derive from the Speed Force, and thus felt every bit of the effects of a ballistic path from South Dakota to the Serengeti. In The Silver Age of Comic Books, Barry Allen occasionally karate-chopped his way through concrete and steel with a single blow. Being able to move his hand at near-light speed made it pretty easy; what was amazing was that the impact didn't shatter his own bones.

Fastest Thing Alive
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_aa0ff084
comment
Fastest Thing Alive: All of the various Flashes have this reputation—especially Wally West, who is in later stories credited as having far surpassed all of his predecessors and any other speedster in the known DC Universe. Technically speaking, Wally's nemesis Hunter Zolomon, (aka "Zoom") is faster than him, since Hunter manipulates time itself and thus can move himself or others through time on a scale even Wally can't keep up with. The limits of the Black Flash's speed isn't really known, but the Black Flash is one aspect of Death, and it's stated that he'll eventually catch every speedster.

Demoted to Extra
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_b8e3f20a
comment
Most creative changes tend to do away with new supporting characters in favour of new ones. Mason Tollbridge, Chunk, Connie, and Wally's parents completely disappeared when Mark Waid took over from Messner-Loebs, with only Linda and Piper sticking around. When Geoff Johns left, Fred Chyre and Jared Morillo left too. When the New 52 happened, Irey, Jai, and the Flash family all disappeared. From New 52 to Rebirth, almost every supporting cast member disappeared when the creative team's changed, with only Williamson's run keeping any (Wallace, Iris, and Singh). Mark Waid's initial run is the only one that didn't lose anyone when other writers took over (albeit, with Jesse and Max getting something of a Demoted to Extra treatment).

Shoo Out the New Guy
 The Flash (Franchise) / int_be0f728
comment
Shoo Out the New Guy: All the characters introduced in New 52 were hit by this in one way or another. Patty Spivot was Put on a Bus after an arc with the second creative team, in a rather forced manner at that. Noticeably, this was when The Flash (2014) started, and had Iris as Barry's love interest. Daniel West's Reverse Flash was unceremoniously killed in New Suicide Squad to open a place for Eobard Thawne again. Turbine, a character that was meant to replace Roscoe Dillon was forgotten immediately after the same creator team change, they reintroduced Roscoe Dillon himself as Top instead. Later on in Rebirth series, Haynes is flat out killed to open the way for ''classic'' Roscoe Dillon's return. Subverted for New 52 Wally West, who is only revealed to be "not being the real deal" but still kept as the new Kid Flash to avoid Unfortunate Implications. The New 52 Eobard himself had this happen to him... to bring back a version of him! Reaction to him wasn't positive (see above), and in The Flash (2016), a stray bolt of energy brings the Pre-New 52 Eobard back from the dead in New 52 Eobard's body, but replaces New 52 Eobard's personality, memories, powers and costume with his own. The last thing he remembers is Thomas Wayne killing him, meaning he doesn't even remember the New 52 stuff.

Cool and Unusual Punishment: A hero-on-villain example. Jay would often resort to methods other than punching out the criminal. Once when a group of thugs from a protection racket were harassing a restaurant owner, Jay forced them to eat so much food at super-speed that they all sat around feeling stuffed and terrible and were no further trouble. In another instance he spun a criminal around and around and super-speed, threatening to let him go until the gangster agreed to surrender. Jay was fond of this method of dealing with opponents.

Shout-Out: To Greek Mythology: Each Flash outfit has wings on the helm, shoes, or both, referring to Hermes. Barry's wife Iris, a reporter, takes her name from the female messenger god of the Greek Pantheon. Wally overhears his wife on the phone discussing how she doesn't want a cheap department store item for Christmas. He then sees the microwave he bought as a bowling ball with Homer inscribed. The title of one short Impulse story is a Shout-Out to The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, one of Dr. Seuss's earliest books. And the story ends with a cameo by Pinky and the Brain.

Rags to Riches: Early in his solo run, Wally West wins the lottery and is suddenly wealthy. He goes on a spending spree and takes steps to maintain his wealth, but made the mistake of letting his mom help manage the money. She manages to lose it all. At the beginning of Waid's run, Wally lampshades this by noting that he's been both filthy rich and dirt poor, but notes that currently he's 'somewhere in the middle'.

When Schott tells her he's going to burn down his factory, because Max has pressured him into giving the kids more rights, she decides to send them to work that day anyway.

What the Hell, Hero?: In the "Ignition" story arc, which takes place immediately after the "Blitz" storyline above, Batman pays Wally a visit to confront him about the Laser-Guided Amnesia he (and everybody else) has suffered through Wally making a deal with the Spectre to make everyone (including himself, inadvertently) forget his secret identity in the aftermath of Linda's miscarriage at Zoom's hands. However, once Wally gets his memories back (via Batman unmasking himself in front of him), he shows no remorse for what he did, pointing out that he'd suffered a tragedy not unlike Bruce's own issues.

Anime Hair: The character marker for Bart. Such voluminous hair simply cannot go unmentioned or unnoticed, and yet very few of his non-superhero friends drew the connection! (If they did, they didn't say anything.) It's so large that you can actually pull or pick up the poor kid by his hair alone, if you're strong enough. He's quite protective of it, too.

Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny

Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny: The Flash vs. Superman races, which, most of the time, would end in a tie. Wally West, the then-current Flash, beat Superman by a slim margin in the first Post-Crisis race between the two, on the basis that Supes is unused to running much as compared to the easier flying option, while that's what Flash does all the time. As the writer pointed out, it would be kind of lame if Flash weren't the best at his only power. As of the Flash Rebirth mini-series, all of the races between the two are only close because the Flash let them be close. When Barry Allen really wants to outrun Superman, The Man of Steel might as well be standing still compared to The Fastest Man Alive.

Friction Burn: An enemy of Jay Garrick who was capable of bringing fictional creations to life once tried to create someone faster than the Flash in order to defeat him. The poor fictional creation caught fire on the way to attack the Flash and ended up nothing but ashes. Jay explained that if any other man was able to move as fast as he could, the friction would burn them up, but the hard water fumes that had given Jay his speed had also changed his body chemistry and made him immune to that friction.

The Load: Mary West, the mother of Wally West, became a particularly notable Load during his early years as the Flash. What are her Load bonafides? Start with the fact that she treats her twenty-something son (with years of superheroing experience) like a fourteen-year-old. This leads her to beg Wally not to help people, and basically act unwilling to let Wally out the door at all. She also behaves like a shrill banshee regarding Wally's girlfriends, calling them gold-diggers - even when Wally is dirt poor! She manages to get herself into various dangers due to her own wanderlusts, and she also blindly sets up several dangerous situations by telephoning the villains and giving up important information because "they seemed nice". Readers undoubtedly cheered when she married a European secret agent; you can have her, buddy.

comment
Enhanced Punch: In Justice League of America, The Flash fights a speedster called Zum. Once Flash starts thinking of it as a fight rather than a race, he uses his speed to accelerate his body until his uppercut has sufficient force to propel Zum upwards at 25,000 mph. The Flash has the Speed Force to render himself immune to relativistic effects of approaching lightspeed as he runs. Zum lacks that same protection, and thus from his perspective Wally was punching him with infinite mass.

Artistic License – Geography: If the Mississippi River divides Central and Keystone City, Keystone should be in Illinois, not Kansas. It's supposed to be the Missouri River, but a lot of writers get it wrong.

Tornado Move: The Flash does this all the time. He usually uses it to shield others from harm, but he once froze a battalion of demons just with the icy winds.

One Steve Limit: A notable exception. Since 1976, when Jay Garrick began being featured on a regular basis again, there's usually been two Flashes active at any one time, both of them using the Flash name. During the period following Final Crisis up to Flashpoint, this increased to three active Flashes, with two of them in similar costumes. Following the New 52 reboot, it became a lot easier to identify them — Whilst DC gradually reintroduced a second & third Flash, they weren't in the the primary DC Universe & can easily identified as the "Flash of Earth 2/Justice League 3000". This, fittingly, extends to their Evil Counterparts too, but it's not as complicated — whilst there are three Reverse-Flashes, the first & second have the alternate names Professor Zoom & Zoom respectively. Intentionally avoided by the Rogues. Though roughly half of them qualify as a Legacy Character, they make it a rule to never have two members with the same title. They still have Captains Cold & Boomerang, however.

Mundane Utility: Well, if you had super-speed, you'd probably use it to get the shopping done too. Averted in the '90s TV show, where Barry's attempt to clean his apartment at super-speed results in an even bigger mess being left in his wake.

Power Degeneration: Wally's powers were killing him for awhile, bringing his powers down to more reasonable levels. You know, not exceeding the mass of the universe while running, stuff like that.

Color Blind Confusion: The Rainbow Raider, a member of Flash's Rogues Gallery is a gifted painter who's also completely color blind, which hampered his success and eventually caused him to turn to crime.

Sidekick Graduations Stick: Wally is the most successful example. His run as the Flash lasted for over 20 years, he was a founding member of more than half-a-dozen teams, and a regular guest star in many other series. Until Barry came back, Wally was the Flash in the general mindset, something few post-Silver Age legacy characters can claim.
