Barry Allen is a forensic scientist known for being exacting and methodical in his work, which often makes him seem slow.  He is often late to meetings and engagements which greatly frustrates his coworkers and even his fiance, Iris West.  Working very late one night in his lab Barry is caught in a accident.  A bolt of lighting struck his lab, spilling chemicals all over Barry.
Barry learns that he can move at supers peed, has super fast reflexes, heightened regeneration and can think at a super rate.
He creates a red suit that allows him to withstand the friction of the air and becomes a crime fighter and eventually joins the Justice League to protect the world.
