Set in Central City, The Flash chronicles the adventures of Barry Allen after a mysterious accident in a lightning storm with a particle accelerator leaves him with unbelievable metahuman powers... and a host of similarly superpowered enemies bent on destruction. Together with his team, composed of members from the powerful STAR Labs and the local police force, Allen begins a quest to become a hero, save his city... and, if possible, his father. A spinoff of Arrow, The Flash features crossovers from its sister series and has a similar emphasis on character development being vital to plot, leaving viewers continually on the edge of their seats.
