"I always understood your brother, Barry. But as much as i loved Jay, I never loved you any less."
—Henry Allen (Earth-90)[src]

Henry Allen is a retired police officer, the husband of Nora Allen, the father of Barry Allen and the late Jay Allen, and the grandfather of Shawn Allen.


At one point in his life, he met Nora and together they had two children: Barry and Jay.

As a father, Henry favored Jay, and took every opportunity to praise him,[1] but was distant from Barry as he grew up, to the point that Barry felt that Henry had failed as a father,[2] though Henry loved both his sons equally.[3]

In 2018, The Monitor invaded Earth-90 and seemingly killed all of its residents. Because of that, Henry's fate remains unknown.[4]
