Meeting Barry Allen
While working with her husband to help Barry, the latter told her that she reminded him of someone special, but didn't disclose to her specifically who. Joan then assisted Jay in setting up the equipment to help Barry see what was to happen in the upcoming Crisis. When Barry fainted after seeing the coming events, Joan read him a poem to help wake him, but when he woke up he commented that she should have used a Lady Gaga song instead.
Joan became a resident of Earth-Prime, living with her husband Jay Garrick in Keystone City. In 2021, Jay’s retirement came to an end one day when he suddenly gained a burst of speed, causing Joan to lecture him on safety. However, she still allowed him to do as he wished. Unfortunately, before he could depart, he was ambushed and kidnapped by an army of Godspeed clones; Joan then reached out to Team Flash so they could save him.
- Due to her Earth-Prime doppelgänger being deceased, Joan is able to remain on Earth-Prime as a refugee from the original multiverse without having to suffer from neurological degeneration.
