You just can't have a good super-team or important event in the DC Universe without a Flash. Justice Society? Original Flash team. Need to jumpstart the Silver Age of comics? Flash has you covered. Discovery of the multiverse? Done by two Flashes, naturally. Teen Titans? Kid Flash is a founding member. Have a big Crisis happening? A Flash is probably going to solve it — or he was the cause.


It only stands to reason, then, that any Justice League roster worth its salt — and certainly any movie roster — is going to be running with a Flash. The original Flash, Jay Garrick, isn't a Leaguer, but the second Flash, a forensic scientist named Barry Allen, was one of its founding members, and the third, Wally West, was a staple of the team for over a decade following his mentor's death. Barry is the most popular Flash, thanks to his CW television show, and is the version of the character that is currently on the Justice League team, both on the page and on the screen.

So now, after already covering Batman, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman, we've reached our video on the Top 5 Justice League stories for Barry Allen. These stories feature the fastest man alive pushing it to the limit time and time again as he inspires hope across the DC Universe, and leaves the forces of evil eating his dust.

If these aren't enough for you, we've got even more Justice League comic book videos for you to race through, with a 2 minute history of the team and our picks for 7 essential storylines. So check out all of these videos so you know just what comic books to hunt down as you sprint out of the movie theater this weekend.
