Video Game Description
The Flash has a red helmet with two yellow lightning bolt decorations on each side. His has a muscular torso in red with his lightning logo in a white circle and a yellow lightning belt. The Flash's legs, arms, and hands are red, but he also has yellow boots on his legs.
In console versions of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, The Flash is capable of zooming through objects and destroying them. His combats are faster than any other characters, even his body parts move at the same speed. He is also the only character able to build deconstructed LEGO bricks back together, as this ability must be used to activate several Bat Terminals.
In portable versions, as well as having super-speed, The Flash has the Acrobatic ability and so can double-jump, jump through acrobatic hatches and swing on acrobat poles. He is mainly used for activating special red treadmills with his super-speed, which can unlock minikits, soundbites and power bricks. The Flash also has a slightly different cowl and face in the portable version.
In LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, The Flash is identical to his real-life 2014 variant.
Barry Allen was known for being slow and easy-going. While a senior in college (with a major in organic chemistry and a minor in criminology) he helped the police apprehend a criminal at a bank robbery, he was offered a job as a police scientist in Central City. One night, during an electrical storm Barry was working on an experiment when a lightning bolt zapped a cabinet of chemicals, and the electrified chemicals bathed him. Through several events that night and the next day, including running past a taxi, catching items a waitress dropped, and saving Iris West from a bullet, Barry discovered that he had gained super speed.
He is also a member of the Justice League, which mainly consists of Batman, Green Lantern, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, The Martian Manhunter and on some occasions Nightwing, Batgirl, Huntress, Zatanna, Hawkman, and Shazam.
In LEGO Batman 2
He later answers Martian Manhunter's call to Gotham, but arrives later than Cyborg, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman. He arrives after the Joker robot has fallen from Wayne Tower and helps Green Lantern quickly repair the base to relieve Superman, who faints, and Wonder Woman. He then participates in finishing off the robot and then defeating The Joker and Lex Luthor.
In the portable version, Flash is one of the Justice League members who appear to help Batman and Superman defeat Lex Luthor in the last level, The Final Battle. His minikit can also be found on this level in Free Play. He costs 300,000 studs.
In LEGO Batman 3
The Flash teams up with other DC superheroes to save the world from Brainiac.
The LEGO Movie
In The LEGO Movie, Flash makes a non-speaking cameo amongst other Master Builders who was part of MetalBeard's crew who infiltrated the Octan Tower, which MetalBeard told to Emmet in Cloud Cuckoo Land. Flash and the Magician were captured by Robo Feds, MetalBeard was "bricked" by Lord Business, and the others were captured by Laser Sharks that were kept as guards. He was with every other Master Builder who was captured by Lord Business and Bad Cop. He was also at the end of the movie with Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Aquaman.
- Vicki Vale mentioned that The Flash fought the Joker robot at Wayne Tower with Green Lantern and Cyborg, but he didn't appear until right after where he helped Green Lantern stabilize Wayne Tower and caught the fatigued Superman. He does, however, appear in that scene in the movie LEGO Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite.
- The Flash is one of only two characters who appears in cut scenes but never speaks in the game. The other is Catwoman. He did speak in LEGO Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite, which can also be said about Catwoman.
- His reverse face can be partially and briefly seen in The LEGO Movie.
- In LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham he has a new ability which allows him to target and build objects at a very fast speed, similar to the Master Building ability from The LEGO Movie Video Game.
- Despite being Barry Allen, the Flash minifigure in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes wears Wally West's costume, as noticed by the different belt. Barry does however wears this suit in recent comic adaptations.
