After a freak storm is caused by a particle accelerator, lightning strikes CSI Investigator Barry Allen and falls into a coma. Months later he articulates with all the power of super speed, giving him the power to move through Central City like an guardian angel. Though initially excited with his new found abilities, Barry is shocked to find he isn't the sole real"meta human" that had been created in the aftermath of the accelerator explosion -- and maybe not everybody is with their new abilities permanently. Barry partners using S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to defend the innocent. For the time being, just a couple good friends and associates understand that Barry is the fastest man alive, but it's not going to be long before the entire world learns what Barry Allen has become. . .The Flash.
