— Timeless Wells[src]
Dr. Harrison Wells, nicknamed Timeless Wells by Cisco Ramon, is a renowned scientist and an ally of Team Flash.
Early Life[edit source]
In 1996, Harrison married Tess Morgan and spent four years with her until her ultimate death in 2000.
In 2000, Harrison Wells was killed by Eobard Thawne and his identity was stolen by the latter. Wells was then buried on the side of the road.
Later, his body was formed by a series of green particles and was resurrected.
Assisting Team Flash[edit source]
Time travelled to 2020 with his Pre-Crisis doppelgängers' memories merged into him, Harrison arrived in S.T.A.R. Labs and was informed by Barry Allen that he survived due to the Crisis. He then convinced Barry to work on repairing his speed and fight Eva. Wells then met Allegra, who mistook him as Nash. Wells then told her that Nash thought very highly of her and met the other members of the team, telling them that he is the original Wells.
Wells then explained how he is able to arrive in S.T.A.R. Labs 2020 and confused the team. He then deduced that the Speed Force is an elemental force in the universe and is simply deactivated, instead of being "dead". Wells then assisted the reactivation to the Speed Force and allowed Barry to regain his speed. During the process, Wells saw his future self with Barry Allen on the side of the machine, greeting them with a nod.
Going Home[edit source]
After helping Team Flash on their battle, Wells bid farewell to Cisco Ramon and Allegra, time travelling back to 1996 and reliving the four years he had with his wife, Tess Morgan, over and over again. He then told Cisco that he and Kamilla would have a similar future, before he disappears into a series of green particles.
Lending a Helping Hand[edit source]
17 days after the defeat of Mirror Monarch, Wells was living in a residence with Tess in Starling City Beach. He was then approached by Barry, who asked for his assistance to erase the Forces of Nature created when they reactivated the Speed Force.
Wells and the team brainstormed ideas to erase the forces without damaging the timeline. Wells then informed the team that he has the ability to preserve the timeline and prevent any alterations to it. The team agreed this method and built the Particle Harness Collector. However, they were interrupted by Deon Owens, who was drawn to S.T.A.R. Labs. Wells, Cisco and Chester then acted to friendly out of fear and Wells introduced himself as a visitor to the facility. Deon froze the time and talked to Barry while aging the device 1,000 years older. Luckily, Chester placed the critical collection piece in his pockets and was able to rebuild the device quickly. Cisco then told them that he think their methods were wrong and they should continue without him.
Later, Cisco returned and assisted the rebuilding, promising Barry that he will always have his back. Wells and Barry then time travelled 17 days earlier during the reactivation of the Speed Force. They witnessed the lightning bursting out of the machine. They were then noticed by Wells' younger self, who greeted them with a nod, with the older Wells nodding back and telling Barry that he remembers this moment. Barry sped Wells to the roof and activated the device. He slowly walked into the bolts of lightning and absorbed the elemental particles, seemingly erasing the Still, Sage and Strength Force. As Barry returns to Wells, he kneeled on the ground and shed a tear, with Wells asking him whether he was fine. Barry slowly stood up and destroyed the device, releasing the particles and restoring the forces' existence. As the team in the present days struggles to figure out why their plan failed, Wells and Barry returned and told that they were right and the method was immoral.
Once again assisting Team Flash, Wells bid farewell to Cisco after telling him how he taught the Harrison Wellses of the Multiverse as much as they did to him and to follow his heart, inspiring him to go with Kamilla to San Francisco.
