"The multiverse has a way of aligning fates...It's written in the stars and in this book, or I wouldn't know that on this Earth, Clark Kent is Superman. Where I come from, that would be ridiculous. He can't see past his glasses."

"The Flash? The Flash..."
—Barry considering his counterpart's alias[src]

Barry Allen is a meta-human speedster and vigilante from Earth-TUD13 who was trapped inside the Speed Force.


At some point in his life, Barry Allen gained the power of superhuman speed. Sometime afterwards, he became famous on his Earth and usually gets people in cosplay asking him for a selfie. Barry also got acquaintanted with Victor and had at least one discussion with him about the possibility of the multiverse.

Barry later traveled into the Speed Force where he met his Earth-1 counterpart, questioning who he was and guessing that he was a cosplayer of his own identity. After both revealed their identities to each other, they admired each others' suits. Barry also reveals he did not have "The Flash" as his codename, but after hearing the Earth-1 Barry say it, he takes a liking to it. He later disappeared in front of this other Barry.[1]


Barry seems very awkward, but also curious and excitable, as he seems equal parts in awe and in terror of what's happening to him. The fact that he very quickly assumes the other Barry is cosplaying as him seems to imply he is a bit egotistical. He is clearly friendly, however, as he attempts to introduce himself and compliment his Earth-1 counterpart, even during this odd and frightening situation.

Powers and abilities

Season 8

Behind the scenes

  • This version of the character did not call himself "the Flash" before he met his Earth-1 counterpart. It was confirmed that Earth-TUD13's Barry now calls himself the Flash thanks to this meeting.
  • The decision to include the DC Extended Universe iteration of the Flash was last-minute, as production on Crisis had already wrapped.
