Who's Who in The New 52[]

CSI scientist Barry Allen was involved in a lab accident when a lightning bolt strike caused him to be doused in a strange mixture of chemicals. He emerged from the accident with powers that enabled him to run and move at incredible speeds. Barry learned that these powers come from his connection to an extradimensional energy known as the Speed Force, and seeing an opportunity to use his speed for good, began his adventures as the Flash.

Even for a super hero, the Flash has encountered a large number of criminal foes working together against him. This group is known as The Rogues and its members include Mirror Master, Heatwave, Golden Glider, Weather Wizard, The Pied Piper and Captain Cold. Conflicts with the Rogues and Gorillia Grodd have kept Barry away from solving the crime that haunts him the most: the murder of his mother, apparently by his father. Does Barry know all there is to know about this mystery? Is he fast enough to find the truth before it disappears? Who's Who in The New 52
