Before a lightning bolt strikes a cabinet of chemicals in Barry Allen's lab, it offers him the chance to become the man he has always wanted to become or live a normal life. Barry chooses to become the fastest man alive and immediately saves the life of his girlfriend Iris and takes on the mantel of the Flash. As the Flash, he takes on a rogues gallery of villains, ending only when he runs faster than the speed of light to destroy the Anti-Monitor's cannon, travels back through time, and becomes the lightning bolt that first gave him his own powers.
