Team Flash is a vigilante team operating in Central City. The current members are Barry Allen/The Flash, Cisco Ramon, Joe West, Cecile Horton, Ralph Dibny/Elongated Man, Harrison Nash Wells, Chester P. Runk, and Allegra Garcia.

Overview

The team's goal is to capture meta-humans who use their new-found super powers for evil intentions. They also fight against crime in the name of justice. The team helps the Flash on missions and gives him info on where he needs to go next and what is going on there. Their main goal is protecting Central City and its citizens. However, the team sometimes helps surrounding cities, usually Star City and National City, and beyond with their criminals and threats.

History

Year One: The Flash is Born

The team was formed by Barry Allen after he gained the power of super-speed with the goal of stopping meta-human criminals in and around Central City. Their main base of operations is S.T.A.R. Labs.

The team fought a number of meta-humans including Hartley Rathaway. In one fight with Rathaway, Barry accidentally put one of Hartley's henchmen, Roderick Smith, into a coma when he threw a lightning bolt at a sonic beam that was created by Hartley's gaunlets.[1]

Eventually, it was revealed that Harrison Wells himself was the Reverse-Flash and that his real identity was that of Eobard Thawne, a speedster from the late 22nd century who murdered the real Harrison Wells and stole his identity. He also turned out to be the one who killed Nora Allen.[2]

At some point, Team Flash fought Sam Scudder and neutralized his powers using coldness.[3]

Years Two through Five

Team Flash fought various villains over the years. When they battled Clifford DeVoe, the MAD 2.0 was used to enter his mind. Cicada was defeated by Barry and Nora West-Allen, Barry and Iris West-Allen's daughter from a possible future. Nora was taught how to use her speed by Eobard Thawne which caused so much tension within the team[2] that Barry, at some point, sent her into the future without consulting Iris.[4] Bloodwork is a foe who left a lasting impression on Barry[5] as he created monsters[1] and believed that he was a hero.[6]

Year Six: War Against Black Hole

After the crisis, Team Flash started investigating all of the changes caused by the crisis. However, an investigation into a mysterious organization by The Central City Citizen caused the secrecy of Black Hole to be endangered and the organization planned several attacks on the members of the Citizen.[7] After the attacks, Team Flash decided to help the Citizen expose and defeat Black Hole.[2] An immediate problem was liberating Iris, Kamilla Hwang, and David Singh from their imprisonment within the Mirrorverse by Eva McCulloch.[1] Team Flash eventually agreed to protect Joseph Carver from Eva with the hope that he would help them free their teammates and friend from the Mirrorverse. However, in a fight with Eva McCulloch's team, Eva succeeded in her mission and killed her husband.[8]

A more immediate problem for Barry was the death of the Speed Force;[5] slowly losing his powers, Barry began to question his role as team leader, as he worked constantly to create an Artificial Speed Force machine.[1]
