The Flash Cartoons
Flash Comic Books
The Flash is a superhero from the DC Comics universe. Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, the original Flash first appeared in Flash Comics #1 (January 1940).
Nicknamed the Scarlet Speedster and the "Crimson Comet" all incarnations of the Flash possess "super speed", which includes the ability to run and move extremely fast, use superhuman reflexes, and seemingly violate certain laws of physics. Thus far, four different characters (each of whom somehow gained the power of "super-speed") have assumed the identity of the Flash: Jay Garrick (1940-present), Barry Allen (1956-1985, 2008-present), Wally West (1986-2006, 2007-2012, 2013-present), and Bart Allen (2006-2007). Before Wally and Bart's ascension to the mantle of the Flash, they were both Flash protégés under the same name Kid Flash (Bart was also known as Impulse).
The second incarnation of the Flash, Flash (Barry Allen), is generally considered the first hero of the Silver Age of comic books and the version of the hero most often featured in live action shows. On May 6, 2011, IGN ranked the third flash, Wally West, #8 on their list of the "Top 100 Super Heroes of All Time", stating that "Wally West is one of the DC’s greatest heroes, even if he doesn’t rank as the original "Scarlet Speedster". Each version of the Flash has been a key member of at least one of DC's premier teams: the Justice Society of America, the Justice League, and the Teen Titans. Wally West has recently rejoined the Justice League, and Barry Allen recently returned to life in the pages of Final Crisis.
The Barry Allen version of the character (with Wally West elements) was featured in a live action television series, simply titled The Flash, in 1990, starring John Wesley Shipp. The Wally West version of the Flash (but with many elements of Barry Allen's story) is featured in the animated series Justice League. All four incarnations of the character have appeared in the Young Justice animated series, with the Wally West version of Kid Flash as a main character in the first season.
A new television series, also simply titled The Flash, starring Grant Gustin in the title role premiered on the CW on October 7, 2014. This new program features a younger Barry Allen with numerous elements of the earlier show as well as using many characters from the larger DC Universe.
Flashpoint (March 16, 2018)
In July 2013, it was reported that Greg Berlanti, who is involved with The CW's The Flash series, was developing a Flash film for Warner Bros. In October 2014, The Flash was announced, and that Ezra Miller would portray the character as Barry Allen. In April 2015, a story treatment for the film was being written by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The studio was also courting the duo to direct, but signed Seth Grahame-Smith as screenwriter and director in October after scheduling conflicts with Lord and Miller. Grahame-Smith dropped out due of creative differences in April 2016, but the studio retained his script. In June, Rick Famuyiwa was hired to direct the film. In July, Kiersey Clemons was cast as Iris West. In August, it was revealed that Ray Fisher will return as Victor Stone / Cyborg. In September, Billy Crudup was cast as Barry's father, Henry Allen.
By October, Famuyiwa also left the project due to creative differences. In January 2017, Joby Harold was hired to do a page-one rewrite of the script. In May, the studio had Robert Zemeckis, Matthew Vaughn, and Sam Raimi on a shortlist of possible directors for the film. Later that month, Raimi and Marc Webb had dropped out from the running. In June, TheWrap reported that Lord and Miller were again in negotiations to direct the film. In July at San Diego Comic-Con, the title for the film was revealed to have been changed to Flashpoint, based on the comic book series of the same name. The film's plot takes place after the events of Justice League.
The same month Goyer revealed he was off The Flash, Warner Bros. hired husband and wife screenwriting duo Michelle and Kieran Mulroney to script a Justice League film featuring Barry Allen, and Shawn Levy to direct a spin-off featuring Wally West. Justice League attached George Miller as director, who cast Adam Brody as Barry Allen. Levy departed from The Flash due to his commitment to Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian and was replaced by David Dobkin. Filming was nearly set to commence for Justice League, but Brody's contract lapsed when the Australian Film Commission denied Warner Bros. a 45 percent tax credit. Warner Bros. hired Craig Wright to script The Flash and announced a 2008 release date following the collapse of Justice League. The project became delayed by the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike. Warner Bros. brought Batman producer Charles Roven aboard, with comic book writer Geoff Johns serving as a consult and co-writer. Johns created a new film treatment, which was screenwritten by Dan Mazeau.
In September 2009 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. had launched a new division, DC Entertainment Inc., in order to better expand the DC Brand. In October 2009, Charles Roven was asked of the future of the Flash. In the interview, Roven explained that he was involved but that he was removed from the project because The Flash was speeding in the direction Warner Brothers had in mind, leaving the possible film in uncertainty. The day after Dan Mazeau responded to the article by saying “Just to chime in on your latest article: The Flash has not been hobbled. Everything is moving forward as planned… I’m still writing the script. Geoff Johns is still consulting. Flash fans have no cause for concern, and (IMO) lots to be excited about.” In February 2010 it was reported that Warners is expected to announce its DC slate in the coming months populated by characters like The Flash and Wonder Woman."
In late February 2010 it was reported that the leading contender to helm The Flash is Greg Berlanti. Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Barry Meyer says they are getting close to giving the go-ahead for a movie. On June 9, 2010 Green Lantern writers Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim were hired to pen a treatment of the film.” The Flash script will apparently be based on the recent run by DC's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. Mazeau told Blastr.com that the studio are still actively developing the big screen take on the DC Comics' character and that the project is not dead yet. On July 20, 2013, The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the film was rumored to be released in 2016 but it has not been announced. In October 2014, Warner Bros. announced The Flash would be released in 2018 as the 6th installment of the DC Comics' shared universe films. Ezra Miller is set to play the title role of Barry Allen. Miller is also set to reprise his role in both upcoming Justice League films.
In October 2014, Warner Bros. announced The Flash, to be released on March 16, 2018. Ezra Miller is set to play the title role, after first appearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. A story treatment for the film was written by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The studio was courting the duo to also direct, but signed Seth Grahame-Smith as screenwriter and director, who later on in April 2016 dropped out due of creative differences. The studio retained his script. Greg Berlanti who is involved with The CW's television series of the same name, was previously attached to write and direct, but it is unknown whether Berlanti will still be involved with the feature in any kind of capacity.
It was revealed by producer Charles Roven that the film and Aquaman will take place after the events of Justice League and thus will not be an origin story. In July 2016, Kiersey Clemons was announced as being cast in the role of Iris West. In September 2016, Billy Crudup was announced as being cast in the role of Barry Allen's father Henry Allen.

"The Flash" TV Series (2014-)
The Flash is an American television series developed by writer/producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns, airing on The CW. It is based on the DC Comics character Barry Allen / Flash, a costumed superhero crime-fighter with the power to move at superhuman speeds. It is a spin-off from Arrow, existing in the same fictional universe. The series follows Allen, portrayed by Grant Gustin, a crime scene investigator who gains super-human speed, which he uses to fight criminals, including others who have also gained superhuman abilities.
Initially envisioned as a backdoor pilot, the positive reception Gustin received during two appearances as Barry on Arrow lead to executives choosing to develop a full pilot to make use of a larger budget and help flesh out Barry's world in more detail. Colleen Atwood, costume designer for Arrow, was brought in to design the Flash's suit, which was modeled after the comic books. The creative team wanted to make sure that the Flash would resemble his comic book counterpart, and not simply be a poor imitation. The series is primarily filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
In December 2011, it was announced that, along with Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim, Berlanti would create, write, and produce a series for The CW based on Green Arrow, called Arrow. In May 2012, it was picked up to series and premiered on October 10, of that year. On July 30, 2013, it was announced at the summer TCA tour that Berlanti, Kreisberg, and DC Comics CCO Geoff Johns would be introducing Barry Allen in the second season of Arrow, with the possibility of the character being spun off to his own series. Actor Grant Gustin was cast and made his debut in episode 8, "The Scientist", to public and critical acclaim. In November 2013, The CW officially ordered a pilot for The Flash. In May 2014, the network picked the project up to series to premiere in the autumn of that year. It premiered on October 7, 2014; preceding the third season premiere of Arrow on October 8, 2014.
The Flash premiered in North America on October 7, 2014, where the pilot became the second-most watched premiere in the history of The CW, after The Vampire Diaries in 2009. It has received generally positive reviews from critics, and won the People's Choice Award for "Favorite New TV Drama" in 2014. On January 11, 2015, The CW renewed The Flash for a second season.
Characters in DC Comics "The Flash"
Dr. Harrison Wells (Reverse-Flash)
is Eobard Thawne (Professor Zoom)
Eobard Thawne, also known as "Professor Zoom" and "Reverse-Flash", is a comic book supervillain in the DC Universe. Eobard Thawne is the archenemy of and a foil for the superhero Barry Allen, the second hero to be called the Flash. He is also the second of the Reverse-Flashes, as well as a maternal forefather of Bart Allen and Owen Mercer. Created by John Broome and Carmine Infantino, he first appeared in The Flash (vol. 1) #139 in September 1963, and remained one of Barry Allen's most formidable adversaries in comics over the next quarter century.
In Flash #324, the character was apparently killed by the Flash in an effort to save his fiancée, and spare her the death that Thawne gave to Flash's first wife, Iris. Largely unseen over the next 25 years except in sporadic appearances, Thawne was resurrected by writer Geoff Johns in 2009's The Flash: Rebirth, and reimagined as a major villain in the DC Universe with his reintroduction. Johns compares this to his similar treatment of Green Lantern villain Sinestro in an early outline of the Rebirth series. In 2009, Professor Zoom was ranked as IGN's 31st greatest comic book villain of all time, and in 2015, he was ranked #2 on their Top 5 Flash Villains list. Eobard Thawne / Reverse-Flash made his live action debut in 2014 in the CW's The Flash, portrayed by actors Tom Cavanagh and Matt Letscher (Cavanagh portrays the character under the guise of Dr. Harrison Wells and Letscher portrays the real Eobard Thawne).
Francisco "Cisco" Ramon (Vibe)
Vibe is the alter ego of Francisco "Cisco" Ramon, a comic book superhero published by DC Comics. He first appeared in Justice League of America Annual #2 (October 1984), and was created by Gerry Conway and Chuck Patton.
Cisco Ramon's career as Vibe began shortly after Aquaman disbanded the original Justice League. When young Cisco heard that a new Justice League was forming in his own hometown of Detroit, he decided to give up his position as the leader of a local street gang, Los Lobos, to join up. What made Ramon a candidate was his metahuman ability to emit powerful vibratory shock waves.
Vibe's sonic powers enabled him to create shock waves of considerable strength. His power could shatter concrete or steel. His agility was above average (and he was a superb breakdancer). Under Batman's tutelage, Vibe became a more skilled combatant.
Vibe's reintroduction in 2013 has sought to establish him as a more powerful character. Part of this was redefining his powers as having to do with interdimensional physics. Justice League of America establishes that Vibe's sonic waves have the power to disrupt the Speed Force, making him one of the few characters in the DC Universe who poses a serious threat to the Flash. For this reason, he is recruited into the JLA by Steve Trevor, which exists to guard against the threat of the main Justice League going rogue. In Justice League of America's Vibe #3, Amanda Waller says "Cisco Ramon might be one of the most powerful super-humans on the planet. He wields vibrational powers that could in theory shake the Earth apart. And he's the only person we know of who can find and track interdimensional breaches." He is also undetectable by security cameras.
Caitlin Snow (Killer Frost)
Killer Frost is the name of several fictional characters in the DC Comics universe. They are supervillains that appear mainly as foes of the superhero Firestorm, Batman and the Flash.
In September 2013 as the "Villains Month" part of the Forever Evil storyline during The New 52, Killer Frost was featured in the one-shot Justice League of America #7.2, also titled Killer Frost #1. She can also be seen on the cover of Forever Evil #1 which hints at her involvement in that series. The issue revealed this is yet another version, however.
Dr. Caitlin Snow is a scientist sent to S.T.A.R. Labs Outpost #72 in the Arctic to work on a thermodynamic engine whose creator had committed suicide, and she soon discovered the place had been infiltrated by H.I.V.E. agents. When they tried to kill her inside the engine, Caitlin frantically ripped off the coolant system merging her body with ice. Transformed into a heat vampire, she killed the H.I.V.E. agents and continued to search for other sources of heat, eventually discovering Firestorm's blasts can temporarily heal her condition. When he was declared dead by the Crime Syndicate, she loses hope for a cure.
Killer Frost mourns the disappearance of Firestorm (who was the only person who could provide her with the unlimited heat she needs for sustenance). She is distracted though by a woman's cries for help as her son is trapped in a flaming car. Though she is tempted to steal the woman's heat, the talk of fire intrigues Killer Frost. Investigating, she discovers that a supervillain calling herself Hotness is causing fires everywhere. Gleefully, Killer Frost catches her and steals her heat, killing Hotness. Despite having done nothing else to help, the boy is reunited with his mother, and Killer Frost resumes her search for Firestorm.
Killer Frost has shown the ability to absorb heat from external sources and transmute it into waves of cold. Using these powers, Killer Frost can create an ice-sheen across her entire body. She can then generate objects composed completely of ice, such as projectiles (ice daggers) and defensive walls. She can also instantly freeze animate matter through physical contact. In pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths appearances, she had the ability to make men fall under her control with a kiss.
Flash & Arrow "All-Star Team-Up" April 14, 2015
Barry made his first appearance in the Arrow season two episode "The Scientist" as a CSI from Central City. He arrives in Starling City to investigate a suspect with super powers who might have connections to a case in Central City. He meets Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) after Queen Consolidated is burgled. Barry has an immediate rapport with Oliver's confidante, Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards). Oliver is immediately suspicious of Barry despite the needs of his forensic expertise; Barry's investigation of the theft allows Oliver and his partners to begin uncovering the Mirakuru plot orchestrated by Deathstroke (Manu Bennett). Barry reveals that he is not in Starling officially, and his quarry may have been involved in the murder of Barry's mother. In addition, Barry hopes to meet the Arrow during his time in Starling City, as he has been reading the hero's exploits as a fan and seeks his help in solving his mother's murder.
He is ordered to return to Central City, but Felicity and John Diggle (David Ramsey) bring him to their hideout when Oliver is poisoned. In the following episode, "Three Ghosts", Barry saves Oliver's life, and continues to assist Felicity in hunting Cyrus Gold (Graham Shiels), a test subject of Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro), after proving that he can be trusted. In a gesture of friendship, he leaves a custom-made domino mask for Oliver to improve his disguise. Returning to Central City, he is hit by lightning while in his lab at the same time that the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator explodes across town. In "Blast Radius", it is revealed that Barry was left in a coma following the lab accident. In "The Man Under the Hood", Caitlin Snow and Cisco Ramon take inventory at the Starling City facility of S.T.A.R. Labs prior to its shutdown by Harrison Wells; they are interrupted by Deathstroke. Caitlin and Cisco later help Felicity create an antidote for the Mirakuru drug.
In March 2014, it was announced that Gustin would not appear in a third episode of Arrow as originally planned. However, Danielle Panabaker and Carlos Valdes appear in the Arrow episode "The Man Under the Hood" in their roles as Caitlin Snow and Cisco Ramon, respectively. Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim stated, "This was something that really came about because obviously Barry is in a coma at the end of ["Three Ghosts"]. That pretty much made it impossible for Barry to appear in [the third episode, as originally planned]... The idea of bringing in [Caitlin Snow and Cisco Ramon] really, really appealed to us because it allowed us to honor our original intention [of] doing something Flash-related around episode 19 or 20 [of season two] without having comatose Barry and basically paying Grant Gustin a lot of money to sit around with his eyes closed just unconscious the whole episode... It allows us to further flesh out the Flash universe in Arrow."
In May 2014, it was revealed that Amell appears as Oliver Queen / Arrow in the pilot episode. In July 2014, Kreisberg stated that Rickards would appear in the fourth episode as Felicity and that a crossover event would occur in episode eight of The Flash and the eighth episode of Arrow season 3. In August 2014, it was announced that previous Arrow nemesis William Tockman/The Clock King (Robert Knepper) would be making an appearance in the first season's seventh episode. Members of The Royal Flush Gang, who previously appeared on Arrow, made a cameo appearance in the eleventh episode of the series. In early January 2015, The CW president Mark Pedowitz announced the intention to do a Flash/Arrow crossover every season, while later that month, it was revealed that Rickards and Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer would appear in the eighteenth episode, "All-Star Team-Up".
In January 2015, the CW announced that an animated web-series featuring the DC heroine Vixen would be debuting on CW Seed in late 2015. It will be set in the universe of Arrow and The Flash. The character is expected to make a live-action appearance on The Flash and/or Arrow as well.
Flash & Supergirl 2017 Musical Cross-Over
Ever since The Flash debuted set within the same universe of The CW’s prior hit Arrow, crossovers have been a #DCTV staple on The CW. This fall will feature The CW’s first ever four-episode crossover, spanning not only Arrow and Flash, but Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow as well. However, today the Executive Producers announced that next season will also feature a two-part musical crossover taking place later in the season between Supergirl and The Flash.
If you’re scratching your head over this, you shouldn’t be. Both Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin were regulars on Fox’s Glee and are more than capable of carrying a tune, along with fellow stars Jesse L. Martin (Joe West), John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn), Victor Garber (Martin Stein) and Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schott). As for how the rest of the cast is at crooning, we’ll find out when the musical crossover takes place in the second half of the season.
The Flash (March 23rd 2018)
The Flash starring Ezra Miller and Aquaman starring Jason Momoa will be released in 2018.
Just as The CW has successfully brought back The Flash in a new TV series, we learn that the character will get a new movie counterpart – and it won’t be TV series star Grant Gustin. Rather, Perks of Being a Wallflower star Ezra Miller is playing The Flash in the DC Movie Universe.
Ezra Miller has signed on to play the Flash in the Justice League movie, and he'll get his first solo film in 2018. Miller's casting explicitly separates DC's movie universe from the TV universe it's building with Arrow and The Flash.
Warner Bros. hired comic book writer Jeph Loeb to write a screenplay in the late-1980s, but the outing never materialized. Development for a film adaptation was revived after the studio was impressed with David S. Goyer's script for Batman Begins, and he was offered his choosing of a Flash or Green Lantern film adaptation. In December 2004 it was announced that David S. Goyer would be writing, producing and directing The Flash. He approached his Blade: Trinity co-star Ryan Reynolds for the Barry Allen role, with the intention of also using Wally West as a supporting character. Goyer's script, which he tonally compared to Sam Raimi's work on the Spider-Man trilogy, was influenced by seminal comic book runs by Mike Baron, Mark Waid, and Geoff Johns. By 2007, however, Goyer dropped out of the project, citing creative difference with the studio.
The same month Goyer revealed he was off The Flash, Warner Bros. hired husband and wife screenwriting duo Michelle and Kieran Mulroney to script a Justice League film featuring Barry Allen, and Shawn Levy to direct a spin-off featuring Wally West. Justice League attached George Miller as director, who cast Adam Brody as Barry Allen. Levy departed from The Flash due to his commitment to Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian and was replaced by David Dobkin. Filming was nearly set to commence for Justice League, but Brody's contract lapsed when the Australian Film Commission denied Warner Bros. a 45 percent tax credit. Warner Bros. hired Craig Wright to script The Flash and announced a 2008 release date following the collapse of Justice League. The project became delayed by the 2007–08 Writers Guild of America strike. Warner Bros. brought Batman producer Charles Roven aboard, with comic book writer Geoff Johns serving as a consult and co-writer. Johns created a new film treatment, which was screenwritten by Dan Mazeau.
In September 2009 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. had launched a new division, DC Entertainment Inc., in order to better expand the DC Brand. In October 2009, Charles Roven was asked of the future of the Flash. In the interview, Roven explained that he was involved but that he was removed from the project because The Flash was speeding in the direction Warner Brothers had in mind, leaving the possible film in uncertainty. The day after Dan Mazeau responded to the article by saying “Just to chime in on your latest article: The Flash has not been hobbled. Everything is moving forward as planned… I’m still writing the script. Geoff Johns is still consulting. Flash fans have no cause for concern, and — IMO — lots to be excited about.” In February 2010 it was reported that Warners is expected to announce its DC slate in the coming months populated by characters like The Flash and Wonder Woman."
In late February 2010 it was reported that the leading contender to helm The Flash is Greg Berlanti. Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Barry Meyer says they are getting close to giving the go-ahead for a movie. On June 9, 2010 Green Lantern writers Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim were hired to pen a treatment of the film.” The Flash script will apparently be based on the recent run by DC's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. Mazeau told Blastr.com that the studio are still actively developing the big screen take on the DC Comics' character and that the project is not dead yet. On July 20, 2013, The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the film was rumored to be released in 2016 but it has not been announced. In October 2014, Warner Bros. announced The Flash would be released in 2018 as the 6th installment of the DC Comics' shared universe films. Ezra Miller is set to play the title role of Barry Allen. Miller is also set to reprise his role in both upcoming Justice League films. On April 9, 2015, Deadline reports that the studio has picked Phil Lord and Chris Miller to direct the film.

The Flash Origin Story S01 (2014-2015)
Barry Allen was just 11 years old when his mother was killed in a bizarre and terrifying incident and his father was falsely convicted of the murder. With his life changed forever by the tragedy, Barry was taken in and raised by Detective Joe West, the father of Barry’s best friend, Iris. Now, Barry has become a brilliant, driven and endearingly geeky CSI investigator, whose determination to uncover the truth about his mother’s strange death leads him to follow up on every unexplained urban legend and scientific advancement that comes along. Barry’s latest obsession is a cutting edge particle accelerator, created by visionary physicist Harrison Wells and his S.T.A.R. Labs team, who claim that this invention will bring about unimaginable advancements in power and medicine. However, something goes horribly wrong during the public unveiling, and when the devastating explosion causes a freak storm, many lives are lost and Barry is struck by lightning. After nine months in a coma, Barry awakens to find his life has changed once again – the accident has given him the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. In the months since the accident, the city has seen a sharp increase in missing people, unexplained deaths and other strange phenomena. Barry now has a renewed purpose – using his gift of speed to protect the innocent, while never giving up on his quest to solve his mother’s murder and clear his father’s name. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.

Joe asks Cisco to compare the blood to Dr. Wells', but Cisco refuses to believe Dr. Wells is involved. Dr. Wells discovers that Ronnie and Dr. Stein's atoms are in conflict, and if it continues they will become nuclear. Dr. Wells determines that a component of the tachyon device recharging his speed could be converted to a quantum splicer to stabilize Ronnie's body and separate the two personalities. Dr. Snow uses the device; Ronnie's body still goes nuclear, but safely away from the city. The explosion alerts General Eiling, who orders a team to recover "Firestorm".

The Flash Season 2 (2015-2016)
Over the past two seasons, we’ve seen many of the Flash’s classic baddies, from Captain Cold to Zoom to Gorilla Grodd. We’ve even seen an early version of the Rogues. But there’s been one key villain missing… until now. Earlier this week, Warner Bros. Television announced that actor Grey Damon has been cast in the role of Mirror Master, and will be appearing in the show’s fourth episode.
Damon will be playing the Sam Scudder version of the character, a criminal who discovers he has the power to travel through any reflective surface. Of course, being the sort of person he is, he uses that ability to embark on a major crime spree to prove he’s the greatest thief in Central City.
Speaking of villains, it’s been revealed that the Flash will be battling two big ones next season. The first, Doctor Alchemy, was revealed in The Flash’s third season trailer that debuted last month at Comic-Con. While we don’t yet know which version of the character we’ll be seeing on the show, we do know that he’ll be voiced by Saw’s Tobin Bell.
The second villain is a speedster, and we now know which one it is: Savitar. While not as well known as the Reverse-Flash or Zoom, Savitar is every bit as distinct and dangerous. In the comics, Savitar (who’s real name is unknown) was a former test pilot who was infused with the Speed Force when flying an experimental plane. He took his name after the Hindu god of motion and eventually gained a devoted cult of followers.
UPDATE: Gorilla Grodd fans rejoice! Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg also confirmed that the intelligent, psychic ape will be returning…and bringing a few friends. Look for a two-part episode set in Gorilla City this season as well.
The Flash Season2
Episode #1 "The Man Who Saved Central City"
October 6, 2015
Ronnie and Professor Stein turn into Firestorm and destroy the singularity, but at the cost of Ronnie's life. Six months later, Barry now operates on his own to avoid hurting any more of his friends and family; Cisco works in the police department alongside Joe and his metahuman task force, and Caitlin works at Mercury Labs. The city holds a ceremony honoring the Flash for his work in saving the city. At the ceremony, Barry is attacked by Al Rothstein whose strength and size manipulation prove too much for Barry to handle on his own. He is convinced by Joe and the others that he needs help in taking down certain metahumans and Barry defeats Al by allowing him to absorb too much radiation. In his dying breath, Al tells Barry that he was sent to kill him by someone named Zoom. Barry also receives a hard drive from Dr. Wells containing his confession to killing Nora that finally proves Barry's father's innocence. They throw a party, where Henry tells Barry that he is not staying in Central City, so that Barry can focus on being the Flash. A mysterious man shows up at S.T.A.R. Labs, introduces himself as Jay Garrick, and declares that the world is in danger.
#2 "Flash of Two Worlds" - October 13, 2015
Jay explains to everyone that he is the Flash on his world, a parallel Earth, and that he was in a battle with a demonic speedster named Zoom when the singularity brought him to this Earth without his powers. Dr. Stein explains to the team how Jay's story could be possible using the multiverse theory, describing their world as "Earth-1" and Jay's as "Earth-2". Zoom arrives and brings another metahuman from his Earth named Sand Demon to kill Barry. The two fight, but Sand Demon escapes. Cisco analyzes the "sand" left behind and has a flash of the fight between him and Barry. After Sand Demon kidnaps Officer Patty Spivot, Jay teaches Barry how to hurl lightning from the energy he creates when he runs. Cisco uses his new power to tap into the "sand" particles and find Patty's location. Barry uses the lightning blast to turn Sand Demon's particles to glass, stopping him. Later, Officer Spivot joins Joe's metahuman task force. Cisco divulges his new ability to Dr. Stein, but asks him not to tell anyone. Dr. Stein and Cisco are able to locate 52 breaches with the other Earth, with the largest one being within S.T.A.R. Labs itself. While showing the team, Dr. Stein collapses into unconsciousness.

Meanwhile, Lisa Snart shows up asking for Flash's help in rescuing her brother Leonard, who she believes was kidnapped. Barry tracks down Leonard, who reveals that he was not kidnapped but is working with his father, Lewis. Lisa swears that Leonard would never work with their father willingly, because their father was abusive toward her when she was a child. Eventually, the team determines that Lewis placed a bomb inside of Lisa and threatened to kill her if Leonard did not help him steal some diamonds. Barry infiltrates Lewis' crew with assistance from Leonard. Cisco successfully removes the bomb from Lisa, so Leonard uses his cold gun to kill his father in retaliation. Dr. Stein's condition continues to deteriorate, and Earth-2's Dr. Harrison Wells arrives through the singularity breach at the lab.

Jay tells Barry that she can be reasoned with, and it works until Barry recognizes her as the Earth-2 version of Linda Park. Later, Light attempts to kill Linda and take over her life, but accidentally kills Linda's boss and is foiled by Barry's team in the process. Wells reveals Cisco's metahuman powers to the team, which Cisco uses to locate Doctor Light. Barry defeats her using a speed mirage technique that was suggested by Wells. After locking Light up, they plan to use her to lure Zoom out and defeat him for good. Jay, who does not trust Wells, thinks it is too dangerous and leaves the team. Back on Earth-2, it is revealed that Zoom has Wells' daughter captive.
#6 "Enter Zoom" - November 10, 2015
As the team works to find a way to stop Zoom, Doctor Light escapes from her containment cell, after Barry was hoping that she would help them stop Zoom. Instead, her Earth-1 counterpart, Linda Park, agrees to help the team by impersonating Doctor Light. Dr. Wells creates a speed dampening serum and the team stages a fight at one of the breaches in order to trick Zoom through. The attempt fails, as Zoom knew what they were attempting. Instead, he goes after Linda, before fighting Barry. Zoom is much faster and easily bests Barry, showing his defeated, unconscious body to the local news and the police station before ultimately returning to S.T.A.R. Labs.

James and Mark place bombs hidden in Christmas gifts throughout the city, threatening to set them off in family homes if Barry does not sacrifice himself. Harry, Cisco, and Jay find one of the bombs and alter its magnetic polarity; they send it into one of the dimensional breaches, which causes it to attract the remaining bombs, removing them from the city. With them gone, Barry subdues Mark and James. Patty arrives ready to kill Mark, but Barry talks her out of it as the Flash. Meanwhile, Joe learns that his ex-wife was pregnant when she left and that he has an adult son named Wally, who later shows up at Joe's house.

#10 "Potential Energy" - January 19, 2016
As Dr. Wells struggles to try to find ways to increase Barry's speed, Cisco presents a new idea to slow Zoom down. Cisco tells the team about a metahuman, whom he has dubbed the "Turtle", who has the ability to stop the kinetic energy around him and thus slow everyone to a halt. After Barry fails to stop the Turtle at a diamond unveiling, the team sets a trap at a local art exhibit. Barry invites Patty with the intention of telling her his secret, but the Turtle is aware of the trap and almost succeeds in killing Patty before escaping. Later, the Turtle kidnaps Patty in an effort to punish the Flash. The team tracks down the Turtle and Barry is able to generate enough speed to move through the kinetic waves the Turtle creates to knock him unconscious and save Patty. Later, Patty tells Barry that she is leaving Central City and Dr. Wells kills the Turtle by extracting a portion of his brain matter.

Harrison determines they are connected to Cisco's fear response and triggers a vibe which alerts the team that Eobard Thawne is back. Wells surmises that this version of Eobard is from a point in the future before he went back in time to kill Barry's mother and was thus protected from being erased with Eddie's sacrifice. Retrofitting goggles to induce Cisco's vibes, the team learns that Eobard is planning to use tachyons to return to his future. Barry arrives and destroys Eobard's tachyon machine. After a race around the city, Barry stops Eobard and imprisons him at the particle accelerator. However, his capture causes a rupture in the timeline that threatens to kill Cisco, so Barry is forced to send Eobard back to the future to save his friend. Meanwhile, Patty discovers Barry is the Flash but, when he refuses to acknowledge it, she chooses to leave the city. Caitlin tries to find a cure for Jay's illness.

Right before the particle accelerator explosion, Joey Monteleone was thrown into a tar pit and left for dead. Sealed away, he is freed two years later with the ability to turn his body into molten tar. He sets out to get revenge on those who attempted to kill him. Meanwhile, Dr. Wells creates a device to siphon Barry's speed energy and attaches it to his suit. He and Barry also successfully find a way to close the breaches to Earth-2. When Barry goes after Joey, the device works and permanently steals a portion of Barry's speed, slowing him down. Wells gives the energy to Zoom, who demands the rest. While going after Joey a second time, Iris is injured when Barry is too slow to save her. Watching Barry wrestle with the guilt of Iris' injury, Wells confesses. Wells pleads his case, asking to be returned to Earth-2 and have Barry seal the breaches so Zoom cannot re-enter.

Labs, Barry, Cisco, and Dr. Wells travel to Earth-2, but there is a surge of energy that destabilizes the breach. The trio will be stuck in Earth-2 until Caitlin and Jay can fix the speed cannon. Barry decides to impersonate his Earth-2 self to get more information on Zoom. He later meets Iris and Joe of Earth-2 and learns that Iris works for the CCPD, while Joe is a singer at a jazz bar. Barry is attacked by Earth-2's Caitlin and Ronnie Raymond, known here as Killer Frost and Deathstorm, agents of Zoom. In the attack, Joe is killed. Cisco attempts to help the police stop the pair, but is confronted by his own evil doppelganger, "Reverb". Cisco discovers Reverb has greater power, including control over nervous systems. Barry tries to rescue him, but is stopped by Reverb and Deathstorm. Zoom arrives, kills Reverb and Deathstorm for harming the Flash, and then imprisons Barry alongside Jesse.

Labs looking for Wells and Cisco, but they manage to escape with the Earth-2 Barry. Wells, Cisco, and Barry update Iris on what happened with the Earth-1 Barry, so they all set out to find Killer Frost in the hope that she will lead them to Zoom. After a fight, Killer Frost agrees to take the team to Zoom. The team arrives to rescue Barry and Jesse, but Zoom shows up, too. The team is able to escape while Killer Frost keeps Zoom frozen and unable to move, but a third unidentified prisoner is left behind. On Earth-1, Caitlin creates "Velocity 9," a compound to temporarily give Jay his speed so that he can stop a new metahuman named Geomancer.

John Diggle and Lyla Michaels arrive to warn Barry, which prompts him to look for King Shark and put a stop to him for good. Barry teams up with Diggle, Lyla, and the rest of A.R.G.U.S. to track King Shark, but he shows up at Barry's home looking for the Flash, tracking Barry's electrical field. A.R.G.U.S. arrives and forces King Shark to retreat. The teams attempt to trick King Shark into a trap, but the bait does not work.

Operating under the name "Trajectory", she invades S.T.A.R. Labs, imprisons Barry, and demands more V-9. After she threatens Jesse's life, Dr. Wells and Caitlin make more of the drug for Eliza, who then speeds off to wreak havoc on the city. Barry tracks her down and tries to talk Eliza into giving up. She refuses and injects more V-9 into her system before speeding off. Barry watches as Eliza's speed becomes so intense that her lightning turns blue and she disintegrates.
