Flash Vs Streak

He has never once been referred to as The Flash, it's always been The Streak. --Revan's Exile (talk) 00:14, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

Harrison Wells called him "the Flash" in the 'future tense' as he prepared to kill Simon Stagg, as well as the future news report at the end of the Pilot. {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 07:08, October 29, 2014 (UTC)


I know the "peak of superhuman physical condition" is the common term on the wiki, but it's actually very much a misnomer. The metahuman abilities vary widely, and there isn't really a peak to their conditioning since pretty much each of them has their own unique physiologies (outside mirakuru supersoldiers, that is). As for the Flash specificly, for the time being all of MIY's powers seem to be beyond Barry's, and pretty much anyone who's involved in regular weight-lifting would be stronger than him, so he isn't really the "peak" of anything. I propose we use the term "metahuman physiology" or "unique physiology" unless we are given a specific term for a given character (such as "mirakuru supersoldier" or possible future terms like "speed force conduit" or "firestorm matrix" or "kryptonian physiology" if Supergirl joins the universe). While we're at it, it might be a good idea to standardize all the powers by creating templates for them (e.g. {{SuperhumanStrength}}). That would prevent different editors from using different terms, and it would be a lot handier for categorization purposes (e.g. trying to see all metahumans with superhuman strength). Thoughts anyone?--Ucanpogaca (talk) 20:36, January 7, 2015 (UTC)

  • I like the power categorization idea. Kinda like the DC Wiki. Sromero78 (talk) 22:06, May 6, 2016 (UTC)

in whitch episode does berry become the flash/ wakes up????

Speed Reading

Recently Barry has show the ability to read the entirely of three or so scientific books in just a few seconds, but also said that he would only be caught up for about 30 minutes or so.

Should we include this in his powers and abilities? Kaestal (talk) 17:41, February 13, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah I think it should go under Accelerted perception. Sromero78 (talk) 18:41, February 13, 2016 (UTC)

Alter Ego

Why did Flash's former alter egos get removed?

Former? *Spoilers*

Barry has lost his powers as of the end of Versus Zoom.. so should we put it under "Former Powers and Abilities" for now?

I didn't want to outright do this as he will probably regain them in one or two episodes so...

Chronicles of Cisco

Barry is mentioned in Episode 2 of the Chronicles of Cisco. IHHeroes (talk) 19:46, May 6, 2016 (UTC)

  • As well, Barry calls Cisco in Episode 4. IHHeroes (talk) 23:45, May 10, 2016 (UTC)

Original Timeline

Could an admin please add a section about Barry's life in the pre-Eobard timeline, when he became the Flash in 2020?--Kir the Wizard (talk) 13:39, May 7, 2016 (UTC)

Barry's strength level

While I do agree that Enhanced Strength should be listed under his powers, as it it obvious that the Speed Force has heightened Barry's strength above what it formerly was, is there any proof that it has been heightened above peak-human levels? For anyone who is unaware of the term it basically means the max level of strength a human can train themselves to possess (ie: Oliver Queen, John Diggle) I suggest we say under enhanced strength that it heightened him to around peak level. What do you guys think? Sromero78. 00:30, October 6, 2016 (UTC)

Barry can punch through metallic meta-humans such as Girder (and injuring him). That counts as superhuman strength.
Wasky1234 (talk) 02:33, October 16, 2016 (UTC)
He can't punch him outright, he needs to build enough momentum otherwise he'd break his hand by just punching girder.TIMESHADE @fandom |Talk/Wall| - |C| 02:56, October 16, 2016 (UTC)
Well, normal humans can build a lot of momentum and do no damage to Girder (let alone breaking his/her hand.) I mean, Barry damaging Girder has gotta count for something of above peak human strength. Wasky1234 (talk) 03:43, October 16, 2016 (UTC)
What you're implying is that a normal human being can build the same momentum and speed as the Flash....he moves WAY faster than a human can.TIMESHADE @fandom |Talk/Wall| - |C| 03:47, October 16, 2016 (UTC)
Main point I am trying to make is humans cannot do any damage to Girder, while the Flash can. Wasky1234 (talk) 04:04, October 16, 2016 (UTC)
And my point is he can only do that due to his superhuman speed. He had to break the sound barrier in order to do so, not just at any speed. Also, like it says above and already on Barry's page, it's listed as enhanced strength, that's enough.TIMESHADE @fandom |Talk/Wall| - |C| 04:10, October 16, 2016 (UTC)

Sesonal Nemesis-es compared to Arrow seasonal nemesis-es

What do you think, of this?

Season 1: Dark Archer - Reverse-Flash

Season 2: Slade - Zoom

Season 3: Ra al Ghul - Savitar

Your thoughts?

JAH 06:40, February 25, 2017 (UTC)

Kinda redundant on a character page. Oliver's rivals isn't relevant at all to Barry and we'd like to keep most of the article in-universe with exception of appearances and behind the scenes.TIMESHADE @fandom |Talk/Wall| - |C| 19:22, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Lightning color

Why is Barry's lightning orange instead of yellow?

Savitar and Barry

Should we merge the two pages now that they are the same person? And if not do we have to create pages for alternate timeline characters? (such as 2046 John Diggle Jr aka Connor Hawke, Flashpoint Cisco etc..)

No.--Typhuss999 (talk) 20:19, May 3, 2017 (UTC)

It would probably be best to wait until the conclusion of the Season 3 in case they throw any more curve-balls like he's got one of H.R.'s Facial Transmogrification Devices, or he's from another Earth, etc.

Why is Audrey Marie Anderson given as an actor who portrayed Barry? —� RoseKate13 (talk) 23:26, November 10, 2017 (UTC)

Barry used HR's face changing tech to infiltrate ARGUS, disguising himself as Lyla.TIMESHADE @fandom |Talk/Wall| - |C| 23:42, November 10, 2017 (UTC)

Barry lightning powers

Shouldn’t electricity absorption be classed as one of Barry’s lightning powers since he has been shown to absorb electricity from other power sources REDHEAD161 (talk) 05:27, July 16, 2018 (UTC)REDHEAD161

TV Show

Since both Barry and Oliver have appeared in Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Legends, and Vixen, shouldn't they be categorized as Thawne, Dahrk, Malcolm, etc and not be tied to one show?

Not really the same thing, at least imo. Barry and Oliver are the lead characters of their own shows, while on the other shows they appear ocasionally, like once or twice during a season.Ninja72 (talk) 01:14, December 25, 2018 (UTC)


Why is Savitar part of Barry's page but Killer Frost has her own? Since KF and Caitlin have even more common than Savitar and Barry, shouldn't they have one page too or Savitar having his own?

---Bate 14:30, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

Killer Frost has her own, because she is a split personality and back in July they decided that we should have separate pages for split personalities.Ninja72 (talk) 14:46, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

I agree that Savitar should have his own page

Sddelano5 (talk)

I agree too. Barry's page is too long right now and Savitar is a very different person. Even though he was just a time remnant, he is the most notable time remnant as the main villain of Season 3. If split personalities can have separate pages, why not Savitar? SeanWheeler (talk) 23:17, February 12, 2020 (UTC)

Shouldn't this page, and others like it be renamed?

Shouldn't this page and others like it, ex: Harrison Wells, be renamed to Barry Allen (Disambiguation)? Carpe Universum (talk) 03:23, October 18, 2019 (UTC)

Barry Allen (disambiguation) redirects here. The reason why the actual disambiguation page is not named this is because we don't need it to be. Otherwise, the title "Barry Allen" would have nowhere to go to. Look around at history and other pages before just asking these questions. You can find a lot of answers for things just by looking around and observing edit histories. $ \int $ IHH dt    14:22, Jun 02, 2020 (UTC)
Understood! Sorry, and thank you!

Carpe Universum (talk) 03:23, October 18, 2019 (UTC)

The Barry Allen title has a good place to go: Barry Allen (Earth-1). That's the most prominent Flash in the Arrowverse. Oliver Queen didn't need the Earth-1 designation in his page title. SeanWheeler (talk) 06:49, December 31, 2019 (UTC)
And if the Barry Allen (Earth-1) page will have Earth-Prime information for being a paragon, then the "(Earth-1)" title is even more unnecessary because it would become confusing. SeanWheeler (talk) 02:40, January 21, 2020 (UTC)
