The heroes of The Flash, like the main character himself, are screened versions of comic book prototypes. The series began to appear on TV screens in 2014 and very quickly found its audience, becoming one of the most sensational series of recent years.
The action of the film is based on the story of the hero Flash, which has long been described in comics. Of course, the serial version is somewhat different from what is presented in the comics, but the essence remains the same.
As a child, Barry Allen witnessed the murder of his mother. This had a profound effect on the child. In addition, the situation worsened when Barry's father was unfairly convicted in the death of his wife.
The boy grew up dreaming of finding the real killer of his mother. Growing up, he became a forensic medical examiner. Once he was conducting an experiment on the acceleration of Harrison Wells particles, but something went wrong. The accelerator exploded, and Barry himself was struck by lightning.
After nine months in a coma, Allen woke up and discovered that he had some superpowers that allowed him to move at supersonic speeds.
Flash's further actions are no longer aimed at finding the killer of his mother (although he did not abandon this idea), but at fighting supervillains, of which there are many in Barry's hometown and country. Thanks to his superpowers, he manages to successfully repulse all the enemies he meets on his way, although, of course, difficulties cannot be avoided. In the fight against evil, his true friends help him, and sometimes without even realizing that they are participating in the fight against the forces of evil.
Flash main character
Barry Allen is a key character in the television series. The rest of The Flash's characters are minor, although they can be of great importance for the development of the plot.
The series strives to comply with the canon, that is, the comics, although the creators allow themselves some liberties. After all, this is a TV show, so for a brighter and more complete picture, sometimes you have to interpret the plot set out in comics in a slightly different way.
However, this does not worsen, and perhaps even improves the series. Fans of the character note that he turned out to be quite authentic. The traits of his character, appearance and behavior characteristic of him in comics are well reflected.
According to the comics, Flash is the hero of wars and numerous battles and clashes with various enemies. Basically, all major skirmishes with enemy forces took place as part of the notorious "Justice League" led by Batman.
In the series, Allen acts alone or is helped by his faithful friends. The TV show does not have big, epic battles, but it has enough action and drive.
Besides Grant Gustin's Barry Allen himself, there are several other main characters in The Flash.
Iris West is the Flash's best friend. Her role was played by actress Candice Patton.
Katelyn Snow is a bioengineer. It was brilliantly performed by Danielle Panabaker.
Eddie Tone is an investigator played by R. Cosnett.
Joe West is Barry Allen's childhood guardian and Jessie L. Martin's police detective.
In addition to the above characters, the series also features other minor characters, as well as many occasional ones.
Barry Allen himself first appeared on television in one of the episodes of the series "Arrow". The character interested the audience, and the creators decided to shoot a separate series about this character, which quickly gained popularity.
The Flash characters are very charismatic and the plot is interesting. In many ways, this is why the series has become so popular. Moreover, among the fans of the series there are not only fans of DC comics, on which it was originally oriented, but also people who are far from comics.
Well-developed characters, thoughtful plot, excellent casting and camera work, as well as directing did their job. The show turned out to be really high-quality and interesting, thanks to which it was able to attract a large audience.
The ratings of the series are quite high, and professional critics, although somewhat harsh at first, softened their opinion by the end of the first season. Now everyone unanimously considers this series one of the best television creations of recent years based on comics, thereforethe project will probably be extended for several more seasons. It is not yet known exactly how many there will be, but 3 seasons have already been released, and the series is far from over.
