Extended Synopsis For THE FLASH's Pilot Episode Teases Time Travel Powers For Barry

An extended description for "City of Heroes" has been released, but the synopsis for The Flash's pilot episode also reveals a little more about the future of The CW series as it drops some hints about both the Speed Force and Barry Allen travelling into the past and future...


From the Arrow creative team of executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and director David Nutter, THE FLASH is a fast-paced super hero drama that follows the high-speed adventures of the Fastest Man Alive. Written by Berlanti, Kreisberg and DC Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, the action drama follows Central City Police scientist Barry Allen, an everyday guy with the heart of a hero and the genuine desire to help others. Standing still emotionally since the day his mother was murdered (and his father unjustly jailed for the crime), Barry was taken in as a child by the investigating Detective West and raised in a cop's home alongside West's supersmart daughter (and Barry's dream girl) Iris. But when an unexpected and devastating accident at the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator facility strikes Barry, he finds himself suddenly charged with the incredible power to move at super speeds.

While Barry has always been a hero in his soul, his newfound powers have finally given him the ability to act like one. With the help of the research team at S.T.A.R. Labs -- including billionaire visionary Harrison Wells, biogenetics expert Caitlin Snow and the eternally upbeat Cisco Ramon -- Barry begins testing the limits of his evolving powers and using them to stop crime, ensuring that no one suffers a similar tragedy to his own family history.

Working with his adopted father Detective West; West's conceited partner Detective Eddie Thawne and Iris West, who's earning her degree in Criminal Psychology, Barry uses his superhuman abilities to help the people of Central City and stop the rogues' gallery of villains -- many of whom have also been altered by the particle accelerator explosion. Concealing his identity behind his incredible velocity, Barry can not only accomplish feats faster than human comprehension, but also taps into an energy that allows him to access moments out of time -- both past and future. With a winning personality and a smile on his face, Barry Allen -- aka The Flash -- is finally moving forward in life ... very, very fast!


"Barry can not only accomplish feats faster than human comprehension" sounds a lot like how The Flash' powers were portrayed in the early days of The New 52, while the mention of the character being able to tap into an "energy" must be a nod to the Speed Force, something not even the pilot made clear would be part of this series. Even more interesting than both of these reveals however is the fact that Barry will be able to "access moments out of time - both past and future". The Reverse-Flash has been known to travel through time, but it could be that we'll see The Flash do the same! What are your thoughts on all of this? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts below!
