S.T.A.R. Labs is a research lab located in Central City. It is the main base of operations for The Flash.


Tina McGee and her husband, David, worked at the S.T.A.R. Labs. After an experiment gone wrong, David was killed.

Barry Allen was sent to S.T.A.R Labs the day after being struck by lightning. It turns out that he gained speed from this accident and with the help of Tina, he became the Flash.
