We all remember, "I am the fastest man alive", being the famous catchphrase of The Flash.

Did you know there were four different characters from different shows with the traits of Flash, a superhero character? These four were Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, Wally West, and Bart Allen.

Out of these, Barry Allen, part of Justice League and the current protagonist of 'The Flash' TV series is still considered one of the most popular Flash characters. He was also a billionaire in the superhero series.

In order to save the multiverse, the monitor assures that Barry must die.

While preventing the antimatter from destroying the entire universe, Barry runs faster than ever before to counteract the antimatter and is swallowed into the Speed Force.

Therefore, many believe that was the moment he died, while others dispute that notion. In one  episode of the TV series named 'Supergirl's World's Finest' 2016, Barry Allen says, 'When you stop trying to force the solution it'll happen on its own', and that's quite motivational.

To read more inspirational quotes from 'The Flash', check the list below. If you want to read more superhero shows quotes, other than 'The Flash' quotes, check superhero quotes and 'The Tick' quotes.
