Barry Allen is a Central City police forensic scientist with a reasonably happy life, despite the childhood trauma of a mysterious red and yellow lightning killing his mother and framing his father. All that changes when a massive particle accelerator accident leads to Barry being struck by lightning in his lab. Coming out of coma nine months later, Barry and his new friends at S.T.A.R labs find that he now has the ability to move at superhuman speed. Furthermore, Barry learns that he is but one of many affected by that event, most of whom are using their powers for evil. Determined to make a difference, Barry dedicates his life to fighting such threats, as The Flash. While he gains allies he never expected, there are also secret forces determined to aid and manipulate him for their own agenda.

Grant Gustin reveal that he likes Superman more than the character he plays, stating "I grew up a big Superman fan," Gustin told Rosenbaum. I didn't really read comics growing up. It was before digital obviously when I was still a kid. I didn't know where to get comics. My parents didn't know where to get me comics but I was a big fan of Christopher Reeve in that whole franchise." When he joind the DC family, Gustin brushed up. "When I was cast as Flash, the research I initially dove into was reading comics because I hadn't done that," Gustin said. "I got Comixology, the app. New 52 was brand new at the time. I was reading all those. I still revisit the comics sometimes now but our show is kind of its own thing. CW is very much its own thing too. It's just its own tone and version of the character."
