The Flash is a 1990 American television series that starred John Wesley Shipp as the superhero, the Flash (Created by Gardner Fox and Harry Lampert), and co-starred Amanda Pays. The Flash’s costume was designed and created by Robert Short, based upon the Barry Allen-era costume of the comics, but more modernized. Executive producers Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo later wrote several issues of the comic book series The Flash: Fastest Man Alive (2007), which focused on Bart Allen, Barry’s grandson. John Wesley Shipp also portrayed the Flash’s “evil” clone, Pollux. Central City Police forensic scientist Barry Allen’s crime lab is struck by lightning. Allen’s electrified body is flung into and shatters a cabinet of chemicals, which are both electrified and forced to interact with each other and with his physiology when they come into physical contact with his body. He soon discovers, with the help of S.T.A.R. Labs scientist Tina McGee, that the accident has changed his body’s metabolism and as a result he has gained the ability to move at superhuman speed. In 2014 he was cast as Barry Allen’s father in a new Flash TV series on the CW network.
