After having a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. He articulates with all the ability of super speed, granting him the power to move through Central city-like an guardian angel. Though initially excited with his own newfound powers, Barry is not surprised to discover he isn't the only"meta-human" who had been born in the aftermath of the accelerator explosion -- and maybe not everyone is using their new powers permanently. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, just a couple good friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be a long time until the entire planet accomplishes exactly what Barry Allen is becoming. . .The Flash.
