Barry Allen, The FlashThe Barry Allen version of The Flash has been in pop culture for more than a half-century, with thousands of stories told about him both individually and along with the Justice League, but we should probably just focus on this iteration of the character. Being played by Grant Gustin, Barry appeared on two episodes of Arrow in the first half of the second season where he was introduced as a crime scene investigator from Central City who has a special interest in super-powered crimes due to the fact that his mother was a victim of one. Following his time in Starling City, he returns back home just in time to get caught in the explosive blast that comes as a result of an accident involving the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator. This big boom puts Barry in a coma, but when he awakens he discovers that he has somehow been given the power of super speed, which he then uses to become a vigilante fighting for good.
Original Flash star John Wesley-Shipp will play Barry Allen's father, who was wrongly convicted for killing Barryís mother and is in prison at the start of the show.
