Lightning strikes CSI Investigator Barry Allen, after a freak storm is caused by having a particle accelerator and falls into a coma. He awakens with the strength of super speed, granting the power to undertake Central city-like an guardian angel to him. Though initially excited by his new found abilities, Barry is not surprised to find he isn't the sole"meta-human" who had been simply born in the aftermath of this accelerator explosion -- and perhaps not everybody else is using their new abilities for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his entire life to defend the innocent. For the time being, just a couple good friends and associates understand that Barry is the fastest man alive, but it's not going to be long until the planet learns what Barry Allen is now. . .The Flash.
