Following the explosion of the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator an unknown, but large, number of individuals had their lives transformed. Many of them came from Earth-2. Many of those affected by the explosion and its further effects were given superhuman abilities or powers, being named meta-humans, (often referred to simply as "metas"). It was confirmed by H.R. Wells that meta-humans are called "meta-homanids" on Earth-19.

Not all individuals who have superhuman abilities or powers gained them by being exposed to the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator explosion, as many experienced mutation in some other way. In ancient times the first known way of becoming a meta-human was by exposure to the Philosopher's Stone. Other ancient means of gaining powers are mystical such as the Anansi Totem and the Khushu Idol. Some, like Slade Wilson, had their DNA genetically modified by being injected with the Mirakuru serum, giving them superhuman physical attributes, senses and an accelerated healing factor. Eobard Thawne's biomolecular enhancer would have similar properties, additionally turning its users into monstrous creatures; as would the Stardust drug, modified to change beings on a molecular level.

Barry ignoring Wells Superhuman speed The power to generate large amounts of kinetic energy in one's cells to allow for movement at incalculable speeds, most notably while moving their bodies or even simply one part of it or more at a time. This ability to accelerate their movements allows them to vibrate their molecules and cells at various levels of effectiveness. Those who wield this ability are called "speedsters" and usually gain the capability to expand their power set to fields such as time travel, intangibility, speed mirages, and manipulating the electricity their accelerated movements generate. The electricity generated in a speedster's body can usually be found emanating backward while running along with an aura of color.[2] Barry Allen
