Known as the Fastest Man Alive, Flash gained his abilities when a bolt of lightning caused a rack of chemicals to shatter all over him. Flash can tap into the Speed Force, an entity that exists beyond time&made up of residual energy. Flash is able to tap into that energy, granting him the power to heal faster than the average person, vibrate his molecules through solid objects, and move close to the speed of light. He even has the power to move so fast that he can travel through time.
