From the creators of Arrow comes a flash of lightning.
This is an extended preview of what to expect from The CW’s vision of The Flash. Barry Allen develops incredible speed and powers when he’s hit by lightning. But there’s more to the story as the creators of the successful Green Arrow series shortened simply to Arrow look to work their magic on DC’s fastest superhero.
It’s still pretty hard to make super fast running look legit on screen though.
After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with 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. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. 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.
