My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive. To the outside world I am an ordinary forensic scientist, but secretly with the help of my friends at S.T.A.R. Labs I fight crime and find other metahumans like me. I hunted down the man who killed my mother, but in doing so I opened up our world to new threats, and I am the only one fast enough to stop them. I am the Flash.
I don’t choose being The Flash over being with my family. I’m The Flash for my family. And I don’t have to run to the future to understand why I sacrificed myself. I’d do it to save you, and your mom, all the people I love.[to Nora]
