The Flash: How Powerful The Arrowverse's Barry Allen Is In Each Season Barry Allen is the Fastest Man Alive in the Arrowverse, but how fast was that from season lớn season and what other powers did that speed earn him?



Barry Allen may be the Fastest Man Alive in the Arrowverse, but how powerful has The Flash truly been from season lớn season? Despite some inconsistencies from episode khổng lồ episode, Barry Allen has generally been shown khổng lồ be boosting his top speed, slowly but surely. As of The Flash season 8, Barry has been confirmed khổng lồ be fast enough khổng lồ evacuate two speeding trains on a collision course with one another in less than 12 seconds, after sprinting 50 miles.

One important factor to keep in mind when considering Barry Allen"s powers is the speed Force; a semi-mystic dimension of pure velocity, which empowers every organically created speedster. The speed Force basically acts like the nitro booster on a muscle car"s engine, pushing a speedster beyond their natural abilities in short bursts. The tốc độ Force also acts as a protective influence, negating the effects of friction and impact upon a speedster & anyone or anything they are touching when they use their powers.

This distinction is important, as the idea that Barry has a superhuman đứng top speed when he isn"t tapping the tốc độ Force explains some of the seemingly random elements in Barry"s performance over the years. For instance, it was a running gag in early episodes of The Flash that Barry kept setting his clothes on fire whenever he ran at his vị trí cao nhất speed. Later, after Barry learned about the tốc độ Force, he stopped having this problem. This idea was also confirmed in the second half of The Flash season 6, when it was revealed that the tốc độ Force was dying and there was a finite amount of tốc độ Force energy in Barry"s system, limiting his top speed as time went by. This limit went away in The Flash season 7, after Barry created a new organic speed Force born of the nguồn of love & Barry was able khổng lồ reach faster speeds than ever, finally outrunning the Reverse-Flash in the The Flash season 7 finale. The premiere episode of The Flash season 8 & first episode of the Armageddon sự kiện confirmed that Barry was faster than ever, having reached new heights of velocity over the summer of 2021.



Barry managed an impressive feat during his first outing as The Flash, offering a quantifiable baseline for his starting speed. In the pilot episode of The Flash, Barry ran up against Clyde Mardon, one of a pair of bank-robbing brothers, who gained the ability khổng lồ control the weather. Driven mad with power, Mardon phối out khổng lồ destroy Central đô thị with a massive tornado, which Cisco Ramon said could build into an F5 tornado (261 mph or 419 km/h.) which is the highest designation on the Fujita Scale. In order to lớn stop the tornado, Barry had lớn run around it in the opposite direction at over twice its speed, finally clocking in at 700 mph or 1126.54 km/h, just under the tốc độ of sound.


Barry broke the sound barrier five episodes later in The Flash season 1, episode 6, "The Flash Is Born." This episode introduced Girder; a metahuman with the power lớn turn his body into organic steel, who just happened to be Barry Allen"s childhood bully. Lớn put Girder down for the count, Barry developed a supersonic punch that multiplied his mass by his velocity, giving him the nguồn needed lớn hurt a man of living metal. This required that Barry run in a straight line for 5.3 miles (8.5 km) at Mach 1.1 (837 mph or 1347 km/h) marking this as the first time that Barry officially ran faster than the speed of sound. He would later learn how khổng lồ modulate his movements in a way that allowed him to lớn run faster than sound without generating a sonic boom.


By the end of The Flash season 1, Barry had learned how khổng lồ tap into the speed Force & how to lớn accomplish feats like phasing his molecules through solid matter. His most impressive deed came during the season 1 finale when Barry time traveled in The Flash for the first time in a bid khổng lồ prevent his mother"s murder at the hands of Eobard Thawne. Though he ultimately didn"t vị this, after being waved away by his future self, Barry still attained his fastest speed to date, running at least Mach 2 (1535 mph or 2470 km/h) khổng lồ attain the speeds needed for STAR Labs" particle accelerator to mở cửa a controlled singularity.


The Flash Barry Allen Grant Gustin Throwing Lightning
The Flash season 2 saw Barry Allen diversifying his powers beyond simple speed. Under the tutelage of the man who called himself Jay Garrick (who was later revealed to lớn be the speedster serial killer Zoom in disguise), Barry began mastering tricks like throwing lightning and traveling between alternate dimensions in the Arrowverse Multiverse. Barry also learned how to create a time remnant: a clone of himself, born of a potential future, created by the speed Force to lớn maintain the continuity of the main timeline. In terms of raw speed, however, season 2 provided enough information for Barry"s improvement to be measured.


The Flash season 2, episode 16, "Trajectory," introduced a new speedster criminal who was seemingly faster than The Flash, thanks to the dangerous drug called Velocity-9. In order to lớn apprehend Trajectory, Barry had to briefly attain Mach 3.3 (2532 mph or 4075 km/h) in order to lớn jump a bridge và head her off at the pass. Later in the season, Barry was said lớn have increased his base tốc độ by training with a tachyon device, which eventually enabled Barry lớn travel between dimensions unaided, as his trial run led khổng lồ his accidentally running to Earth-38 & his first encounter with Supergirl. When he returned khổng lồ Earth-1, Barry was informed that he had run four times faster than his previous vị trí cao nhất speed before he jumped dimensions, marking his đứng đầu controlled speed at just over Mach 13.2 (10,128 mph or 16,300 km/h).


The Flash Season 3 quái nhân Review
The Flash season 3 pit Barry Allen against his greatest challenge yet: the self-dubbed god of speed Saviatar. A base speed was never given for Savitar, who was fast enough that even Barry"s heightened senses and connection lớn the speed Force couldn"t detect him until he chose to lớn make his presence known. However, its known that Barry continued lớn boost his base tốc độ throughout the season, as he tested himself against the Earth-2 hero Jesse Quick in a relaxed state in season 3, episode 4, "The New Rogues." Barry was revealed to be slightly faster than Jesse, with both comfortably able khổng lồ jog at just under Mach 3 (2,302 mph or 3,704 km/h).

The Flash - Jay Garrick Vibe Jesse Quick Killer Frost & Barry Allen in Flashtime
When Barry returned after being imprisoned in the speed Force for several months in The Flash season 4, he seemed khổng lồ have attained a new level of speed và a number of new tricks. The most impressive of these was an ability Cisco Ramon dubbed Flashtime; a heightened state of awareness where Barry boosted his brain"s ability to react to lớn events around him, effectively stopping time for himself & anyone with whom he shared his speed. Like overclocking a computer, Barry couldn"t enter Flashtime for long without the risk of burning himself or his allies out, but he was able to lớn train himself, Cisco Ramon và Caitlin Snow to operate in a state of Flashtime, enabling them to save multiple hostages from The Thinker in the penultimate episode of season 4, "Think Fast." No measurement was given lớn describe how fast Barry was moving while in Flashtime, but it had to lớn have been just below the speed of light in order to lớn see what he was doing while still moving fast enough to be effectively invisible to lớn the rest of the world.

A different feat in the season 4 episode "Honey, I Shrunk Team Flash" offers a quantifiable base for Barry"s speed. After having his life saved by an inmate known as Big Sir, whom Barry had learned was innocent of the crime that sent him lớn prison, Barry repaid the debt he felt he owed Big Sir by helping him to lớn escape prison, running him out of the prison at superspeed and leaving him in the Chinese city of Jiaju. Presuming Central City"s location lớn be roughly the same place as Kansas City, Missouri in our world, there"s roughly 7,480 miles (12,037 km) between Central City and Jaiju. For Barry to have run that distance và back without being noticed leaving his cell by a fixed security camera would have required him khổng lồ be moving at least 119 million mph (191.5 million km/h) or Mach 155,096. That"s a drop in the bucket compared khổng lồ the speeds suggested by Flashtime, but still far faster than Barry had ever moved in season 3.


The Flash season 5 didn"t offer a great giảm giá of hard data regarding how Barry"s powers were progressing. While he wasn"t shown to be appreciably faster, he did show a greater understanding of the tốc độ Force and how he could use it in a passive manner regarding other speedsters, as he trained his daughter Nora. When he learned that Nora had been working with a future version of Eboard Thawne, an angered Barry was able to forcibly drag Nora back to lớn her proper place in the time stream & warned her not to lớn try returning khổng lồ the past, saying that he would be able lớn sense her approach through the tốc độ Force.


The first two episodes of The Flash season 6 offered definitive yet contradictory limits for Barry Allen"s speed. The season 6 premiere "Into The Vortex" found Barry trying to lớn save the stranded consciousness of aspiring scientist Chester phường Runk, who had accidentally tied his brainwaves khổng lồ a singularity. This led lớn one of the most fantastic visuals in the show"s history, as The Flash ran "into the vortex" of a đen hole, to lớn the triumphant Flash Gordon theme by Queen, which Cisco Ramon had been saving for just such an occasion. Presuming the tốc độ Force had a hand in protecting Barry from the immense gravity & lack of an atmosphere inside the black hole, Barry had to lớn be traveling faster than light to accomplish this feat. This means that Barry was moving somewhere over 670.6 million mph (1.079 billion km/h) or Mach 874,031 when he entered the black hole và maintained that tốc độ for just over 30 seconds before emerging. This was an impressive measure of The Flash"s abilities và how far he had come.


Unfortunately, this highwater mark would be contradicted one episode later in The Flash season 6, episode 2, "A Flash of the Lightning," which showed Barry confronting a light-empowered villain called Ultraviolet, whose energy blasts of pure light were said khổng lồ travel at over 80 times Barry"s vị trí cao nhất speed. Dividing the speed of light by 80 reveals Barry Allen"s đứng đầu speed as The Flash to lớn be roughly 8.3 million mph (13.5 million km/h ) or Mach 10,925. It"s possible this is a measure of how fast Barry is without fully tapping the tốc độ Force, which he presumably did khổng lồ protect Big Sir and himself in the aforementioned case. Or maybe Barry did something in between seasons that changed the history of the Arrowverse along with his đứng top speed, as in the Flashpoint reality.


The greater portion of The Flash season 7 didn"t offer Barry as much opportunity to lớn showcase how far he had come in developing his powers as previous seasons. This was largely due khổng lồ the storylines throwing Barry into situations where his heart was more important than his speed. A prime example of this came in The Flash season 7 episode "The tốc độ of Thought," when Barry connected to lớn Cisco Ramon"s artificial tốc độ Force và developed a new nguồn dubbed "speed thinking." While Barry became capable of running calculations in his head faster than a quantum computer, the newfound efficiency that tốc độ thinking allowed came at the cost of his humanity.


The reborn speed Force (a.k.a. Speed Force Nana or Big Nora) claimed that Barry was faster than he had ever been before, but no hard numbers were given khổng lồ back up this assertion. However, Barry Allen proved his powers had increased in The Flash season 7 finale, "Heart of the Matter, Part 2," when he faced a rejuvenated Reverse Flash and easily side-stepped the sucker punch his oldest enemy tried khổng lồ hit him with, catching his fist và throwing him several dozen feet. It"s been a joke since the earliest days of the Arrowverse that Barry Allen often described himself as "the Fastest Man Alive" when every season of The Flash pit him against speedster supervillains who were faster than he was. By besting Thawne, Barry Allen finally proved he was worthy of that title.


The Flash season 8 premiere, "Armageddon, Part 1," was quick to establish that Barry Allen had leveled-up his powers over the six months that passed after The Flash season 7 finale. The first scene of the episode found Barry having coffee with Caitlin Snow, who asked him what it was like just "walking khổng lồ go get coffee when you can run 4,000 miles an hour?" Presuming she was being literal, this would put Barry"s vị trí cao nhất speed at 6437.376 km/h or Mach 5, which is a far cry from the speeds he displayed in earlier seasons. However, Barry went on khổng lồ give a practical demonstration of his speed, evacuating two bullet trains on the Calvert Railway roughly 50 miles south of Keystone thành phố before they collided. Barry was easily able to lớn cover this distance & empty both trains of passengers in 12 seconds.


Later, in "Armageddon, Part 4," The Flash teamed with a resurrected Damien Darhk and established another benchmark for his speed. While crunching the numbers lớn determine how much time he needed to lớn build up the speed to lớn travel in time, Barry calculated that he needed a 40,000 mile long runway to lớn reach Mach trăng tròn in two minutes. This meant that Barry would have had khổng lồ run 15,345 mph (24,696 km/h). While that is much slower than his previously charted maximum speeds, it should be noted that this was Barry running without the tốc độ Force"s assistance, due lớn his never having been chosen by the tốc độ Force in the Reverse-Flashpoint reality.
