- "Now all I have to do is find my way home. [...] I think you would call it Earth-3."
- —Jay Garrick[src]
Earth-3 is a universe parallel to Earth-1 and Earth-2. The name was coined by Jay Garrick. Similar to Earth-2, Earth-3 has various features that are anachronistic compared to Earth-1, such as the popularity of zeppelins and the Tommy gun.
At some point, Jay Garrick gained speedster powers and began acting as a vigilante on Earth-3 known as "the Flash".
After Hunter Zolomon overdosed on the Velocity serums, he crossed over from Earth-2 into this world. While terrorizing this Earth, he soon discovered the full effects from the drug in his system. In a frenzied attempt to try to restore his original health, he overpowered and kidnapped Jay and took him back to Earth-2 to steal his speed to heal himself. However, for some reason it didn't work, so Hunter imprisoned Jay and stole his identity as "the Flash" to use it to give the people of his Earth hope so he could sickly rip it away.
The Trickster from this world robbed a bank and intended to kill his hostages. CCPD officers were dispatched to apprehend him, but Jay Garrick appeared on the scene first. Upon being confronted, the Trickster fired his Tommy gun at Jay, but the speedster easily caught all the bullets with his helmet. As a last resort, the Trickster cuffed himself to Jay and activated a timed bomb, intending for both of them to die. Fortunately, Barry arrived on the scene, disabled the bomb, and tied up the Trickster. The police arrived moments later and took psychotic criminal into custody.
After Wally West of Earth-1 was trapped in the Speed Force by Savitar, Jay decided to sacrifice himself to take Wally's place. With no Flash to protect this world, Jesse moved to Earth-3 take Jay's place until he can return.
