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.

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

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.

The Flash DC Comics was also featured in Showcase #8, #13 and #14, his second, third and fourth Silver Age appearances:

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.

Flash #105 is a Hot Comic.

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.

Flash #123 is a key issue comic and a member of our 100 Hot Comics to invest in list.
