Rather than parading the same old character stories, DC Comics decided to completely reinvent old Golden Age favorites, launching the Silver Age of comic books.

One of the first updates was for The Flash.

Previously a college student who used his lab-accident skills for football glory, the new Flash came about from a lightning bolt shattering chemicals at his job as a police scientist.


Originally featured in Showcase #4, the character soon spawned off to have his own comic, simply known as The Flash. (Read our full article on Showcase values here.)

Rather than covering up the differences in the previous Flash and the new Flash, DC eventually connected the Golden Age with the Silver Age to create the DC multiverse that exists today.

Brilliantly, the Silver Age writers at DC made characters self-aware of parallel universes that existed within the pages of The Flash and soon many others.

Showcase #4: Origin and First Appearance of the Silver Age Flash

Barry Allen asks, "I wonder what it would really be like — to be the fastest man on earth?" and he soon finds out.

In Showcase #4, Barry Allen makes his first appearance as The Flash in DC Comics. The previous Flash, Jay Garrick, also makes an appearance in the comic. Turtle Man, a villain, makes his first appearance and so do Iris West, Central City, and Flash's Costume Ring. 

Revived in 1956 by Robert Kanigher (writer), Carmine Infantino, and Joe Kubert (cover artists), Showcase decided to show off the "Fastest Man Alive!" in the stories, The Man Who Broke the Time Barrier! and The Mystery of the Human Thunderbolt!

Reinventing the iconic character, DC began to change the way stories are told, hoping to continually make improvements on storytelling in general.

Flash #105: First New Series, First Appearance of the Mirror Master. Click for values

Picking up where they left off, The Flash reboot came alive once again with Flash #105.

Much like the mirror scene from Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon, the cover of the issue consists of The Flash checking each reflection for the real villain.

In The Master of the Mirrors, the evil Mirror Master is a bank robber who uses strategically placed mirrors to duplicate bank managers in order to rob banks.

Josh Broome wrote these stories and the cover artist was Carmine Infantrino. This was the first appearance of Katmos and additional characters included Iris West and John Haines.

The Flash DC Comics #110: Origin, First Appearance Kid Flash and Weather Wizard

Flash #110: Origin and First Appearance Kid Flash and the Weather Wizard. Click for values

Published in January of 1960, Flash #110 involves our hero fighting flash flood possibilities brought on by the evil Weather Wizard. 

With the first appearance of the Weather Wizard, The Flash is using his arm speed instead of his legs.

This issue also features the story Meet Kid Flash! Iris' nephew Wally visits Barry Allen. The boy is a huge fan of the speedster, so Allen decides to suit up (secretly) so the youngster can meet his idol.

While The Flash explains his powers, another lightning bolt bursts through the ceiling and creates the same reaction to Wally that once happened to Allen, giving him super speed and reflexes. Allen creates another outfit and invites Wally to be his sidekick — Kid Flash.

In Flash #110, the cover artists were Carmine Infantino and Joe Giella. John Broome wrote both the stories and this was the first appearance of the Weather Wizard.

Flash #123: Flash of Two Worlds

Flash #123: Flash of Two Worlds was a groundbreaking story idea. Click for values

Published as Flash #123, Flash of Two Worlds! was an absolutely groundbreaking comic book.

In 1961, the cover invited users to see both Barry Allen and Jay Garrick Flash versions running to save the same pedestrian roofer.

Another stepping stone to forming the DC multiverse, the idea was to combine the dimensional boundaries of fictional, yet parallel worlds.

After a successful launch, DC began to create other crossovers between worlds of those in the Golden Age and those within the Silver Age.

Basically, they could create links to old and new versions of the same characters, inviting fans to choose their favorite or simply read about both.

This idea in the Flash DC Comics was truly ahead of its time, as it promoted both story and business to make DC the powerhouse that it is today.
