    The Flash Suits (Earth-1: Pre-Crisis)

    The Flash Suits are a series of protective suits used by Barry Allen as the vigilante, The Flash.

    History[edit | hide | hide all]

    Test Run[edit | hide]

    This suit was designed as a training suit for Barry Allen for the Team Flash to test out Allen's speed at Ferris Air Testing Facility.[1] It was then placed at Starchives and briefly worn by Chester P. Runk.[2]

    The Streak[edit | hide]

    This suit is a prototype firefighter uniform designed to withstand the extreme heat. It was converted into The Flash Suit by Cisco Ramon and added an earpiece, lightning bolt designs and an emblem.[1]

    Captain Cold[edit | hide]

    After Allen's first time being a vigilante, Ramon added a better earpiece and inserted a thermal threading after being defeated by Cold Gun's low temperature. Ramon also linked the suit to the system of S.T.A.R. Labs and can monitor the suit while Allen uses it.[3]

    Destruction[edit | hide]

    The suit was later destroyed by Plastique after Allen touched her. After the suit was destroyed, Allen went back to S.T.A.R. Labs half-naked and was questioned by Ramon. Allen told Ramon the truth and Ramon was upset at the destruction. Later, Ramon gave one of the spare suits to Allen, and he claimed he had two more spare suits.[4] Another spare suit was used by Allen again in 2018 when Nora West-Allen returned and his suit was destroyed. However, the spare one was again destroyed when Gridlock sent Allen landed in a pond and tore the suit open.[5]

    The Flash is Born[edit | hide]

    After Wade Eiling shot acid at Allen and Allen had to run it off, the suit was burnt and was unable to be used. Ramon later gave him another spare suit, and he wore it until it was erased out of existence in Flashpoint.[3] After Flashpoint, it was restored when Thawne killed Nora Allen again, resetting the timeline.[6]

    A New Emblem[edit | hide]

    After the team reunited, Ramon redesigned the suit with a new emblem which matches the one shown in the newspaper from 2024. The suit was later designed with Dwarf Star Alloy Alloy to protect Allen, but it can only do it once. After fighting Griffin Grey, the chest piece was abandoned.[7]

    Into the Speed Force[edit | hide]

    After Allen tried to regain his speed, he was sucked into the Speed Force and thus, destroying the suit, leaving the emblem part on the ground.[8] It was replaced by a Speed Force replica.[9]

    And underneath all this red beautiful, I've built in self-repairing armor, nano-liquid circuitry, full-spectrum scanning, and a whole bunch of other big words. Chief among them. Your very own custom-made HUD. This thing is loaded with maps, schematics, delivery menus.

    Allen running in his fifth suit

    As of 2020, Allen was using an advanced suit as The Flash. This suit was created by Cisco Ramon at some point after 2019, and it was stored in the Flash Ring.[10] The suit then served as Allen's major suit for his actions afterward and was given multiple upgrades including a modified Particle Eradication Distributor that appeared as a pair of good boots, allowing Allen to battle Despero's Flame of Py'tar.[11]

    Overview[edit | hide]

    Designs[edit | hide]

    The first two suits are red leather jackets with golden accents. The suit includes an emblem of a thunderbolt on the chest with the first suit having a red background and the second having a white one and a golden belt. The suit's cowl can also be removed, similar to a hood.[12]

    The fourth suit has a similar primary design as the first three with a red removable cowl and golden accents. However, the red in this suit was brightened and was redesigned with a new fabric. As the suit was built with advanced technology, it can be stored in the Flash Ring for mobility.[13]

    Allen runs with the PED

    Keeping elements from predecessors, the fifth suit's color scheme was darkened compared to the third suit with the fabric slightly altered. This suit also includes more golden accents on the chest and legs. Additionally, the suit includes nanotechnology for the cowl.[14] A pair of gold boots were also added to the suit while Allen fought against Despero, allowing him to stop the latter's destructive Flame of Py'tar.[11]

    Functions[edit | hide]

    Suit telemetry
    • Advanced Durability: To compensate for Allen's superhuman speed, the suits are able to withstand the heat caused by friction during the high-speed running.
    • Audio Broadcast: The lightning bolt on the side of the cowl also serves as a speaker. Allen used the audio broadcast function when he attempted to attract the attention of a Godspeed.[15]
    • Connection to S.T.A.R. Labs: The suit is connected to the S.T.A.R. Labs computer system and can be monitored from the cortex. The lightning bolt on the side of the cowl also serves as a communication device.
    • Hologram Projector: The HUD of the cowl is able to project a hologram and act as a map for Allen. However, when misused, it could block Allen's vision.[2]
    • Identity Concealment: The suit has a red cowl to prevent Allen's identity from being exposed.
    • Nano Technology (fourth suit): The fourth suit was installed with nanotechnology for the cowl and can be activated when Allen presses the lightning bolt on the cowl.
    Does that include currents equal to the kinetic output created when I run?
    Uh, it should, and the force of those two equal energies would probably cancel each other out. It'd be like running into a brick wall.
    • Energy Redirection: The PED installed in the boots of the suit has the capability of redirecting most energy sources, including currents equal to the kinetic output created when Allen runs. The force of those two equal energies would then cancel each other out and create a surface for Allen to walk on, allowing him to reach high locations with ease.[16]

    Notes[edit | hide]

    • According to Cisco Ramon, there are at least 3 spare of the red emblem suit as he claimed there are 2 left after the original one was destroyed.
      • The original one was used when it was blown up by Plastique in Plastique (The Flash).
      • The second one was burnt by acid in Fallout (The Flash).
      • Later, the last spare suit was used in Nora when Allen did not have a suit to use. This proved that Cisco did make three spares of the original suit.
