We have had all kinds of action heroes from the ever-strong and angry Hulk to the mega-mind genius Iron Man or even the funniest Spider-Man. Every superhero has some kind of trait to them that one cannot seem to forget, nor can one get out of their mind. Similarly one of those superheroes who is gifted with something very usual and even new is Flash. By his name itself, one can make out that it has to do a lot with lightning.
Indeed it is correct to assume as Flash is a superhero with gifts of speed equal to lightning. He isn’t simply a fast runner or racer, but whatever he does, he does it with an extreme speed that at times, it is also hard to see him actually making any moment. This character’s superpower is something beyond the ordinary understanding that most of us won’t be able to understand or adapt to at times.
