While most people regard Barry Allen as The Flash, the original Flash was Jay Garrick.

First featured in Flash Comics #1, the speedster wears blue pants and a red shirt—both highlighted with golden lightning bolts.

On his head, he wears a metal helmet passed down from a grandfather who fought in WWI. With yellow wings on the side of the helmet, it resembles that of the Greek god, Mercury (if Mercury could run at superfast speeds and still wear a helmet).

From DC Comics, the first issue hit the stands in 1940 and also featured The Hawkman, Johnny Thunder, The Whip, and Cliff Cornwall.

The images came from Harry Lampert and the story from Gardner Fox. In the first issue, The Flash immediately admits his identity to his girlfriend Joan Williams.

In terms of anonymity, most people couldn't get a picture of him due to his quick speeds.

The Flash Comic Book #1 is a very rare comic. If you've come across one, then be sure to have us appraise it for you!

Even though The Flash was definitely the lead singer, he didn't mind letting the other members of the band take some spotlight.

In Flash Comics #2, The Hawkman takes center stage, while The Flash grabs a spot on the side panel with the other famous characters introduced in the first issue. 

The four stories were The Terror of Goll, The Globe Conquerors, Johnny Becomes a Boxer, andVigilantes of Seguro.

Dennis Neville designed the cover and the writers were Gardner Fox and John B. Wentworth. Harry Lampert, Dennis Neville, Stan Aschmeier, and George Storm took care of the pencil work.

Not as rare as issue #1, but these seldom show up in any condition.

Comic Cavalcade

Showcasing more than one star all of the time, these Comic Cavalcade issues were very popular.

Portrayed as "A Galaxy of America's Greatest Comics", popular characters included Wonder Woman, The Flash, and the Green Lantern.

History of The Flash Comic Book

Clark Kent will always be Superman, but The Flash has had a few alter egos.

The three main identities are Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, and Wally West. Garrick is a college student who accidentally breathes in water vapors while attending his lab class. Soon, he finds out that his reflexes and running capabilities have grown to superhuman strengths.

For a while, the boy is a college football star before he acquires his trademark red shirt and lightning bolt to become The Flash.

Only wearing a helmet, some issues claimed he had a secret identity, while others read as if most people knew who he really was from his football glory.

Barry Allen, a forensic scientist for the police department, was known for never showing up to work on time along with a generally slow demeanor. This all changes when a lightning bolt crashes through the ceiling exploding chemicals all over Allen, which gives him his super speed and strength.

In this version, he names himself The Flash, after his favorite comic book hero, Jay Garrick.

The runner also wore a mask and suit to hide his true identity. Wally West essentially became The Flash in the same manner as Barry Allen and has also been referred to as Kid Flash.

Unfortunately, these and many other comics didn't survive through the "DC Implosion", where the landmark publisher decided to suddenly cancel dozens of comics in 1978.
