‘The Flash’ is but one of several comic book-based live action series headed to television this fall, but it’s arguably the most anticipated. Grant Gustin got a head start by popping up on ‘Arrow’ this past season as Barry Allen, the police investigator who assisted ‘The Arrow’ with a mission before returning to Central City where he was the victim of a random mishap at S.T.A.R. Labs. which will, on ‘The Flash,’ result in him gaining super speed powers.
Here is the show’s official description:
“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.”
