The Flash has been a famous character across the ups and downs of the history of comic books and their associated media, and has seen multiple reinventions. The first came in 1956 as what would be called the Silver Age of comics began: his secret identity was the lonely forensic scientist Barry Allen, who acquired a connection to a mystical energy called the Speed Force when he was struck by lightning. Also known as the Fastest Man Alive, this version of the character would be one of the best-known and most often-revived over subsequent decades.
