- For his Earth One equivalent, see Joe West.
Much like his Earth One counterpart, he shares a very loving relationship with his daughter Iris West-Allen and is concerned for her well-being due to her occupation as a police officer. However, while the Earth One Joe holds Barry in high regard and cares deeply for him, Joe and Barry's Earth Two counterpart share a mutual dislike. This is because Joe blamed Barry for Iris choosing to become a police officer to help pay fro Barry to get his PhD which put her in danger with the Zoom. However his dislike of Barry subsides when he tells Barry (masquerading as Earth-2 Barry) to take care of Iris shortly before his death. He was killed by Deathstorm after he was about to kill Iris.
