Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well here’s a few things you might not know!

Since he has just successfully wrapped up the first season of his hit TV series, this week we're taking a look at DC's most famous lightning-fast legacy hero, the Flash! Find out how many people have borne the mantle of the Flash, the counter-intuitive gimmick of the Flash's first villain, and the ups and downs of Barry's relationship with Iris, as well as several other equally interesting facts.

Show notes:

  • Sorry if this video talks more about Barry than whoever your favorite Flash is. He's the current one, he's the one on the show, dill with it.
  • Here is an article I wrote about the best Flash stories ever. Here is an article I wrote about ten good places to start with the Flash. Hopefully between the two of them you can find some good comics to buy and read.
  • Read Dylan Todd's recaps of the Flash show here.
