The CW has released a brand new promo spot for the upcoming The Flash series, and this one shows off a bit more of the Weather Wizard than we’ve seen before.
After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.
I don’t know if I’ve ever expressed how much I like the character of the Flash, and if you have listened to recent discussions on comic book collecting and reading habits, you know that I prefer collecting The Flash over anything with Batman in it. This is why I am so excited to see what the network does with the Scarlet Speedster and hope they don’t screw it up.
