Barry Allen is the human alter ego of the DC Comics superhero The Flash. The character was created by writer Robert Kanigher and artist Carmine Infantino and first appeared as the feature spotlight Showcase #4 in September-October, 1956. Barry Allen was a forensics scientist who was doused with chemicals after a freak lightning bolt struck the display stand in his laboratory, granting him the ability to move at super-speed. Once regarded as the slowest human being on the planet, Barry subsequently earned himself the sterling sobriquet, "The Fastest Man Alive".
Barry Allen has been portrayed in various formats in TV programs over the years, both in live-action features as well as animated projects.
