The Flash is a hit, and one of my new favorites. It’s the story of Barry Allen, a slightly nerdy forensic scientist who finds himself with super speed due to a lightning strike and some scientific irregularities. Barry isn’t the only one who was changed that night and not everyone wants to use their powers for good. Add in some unrequited(?) love, a team of super smart scientists, and a whole bunch of secrets and there’s plenty to jump off from for readers’ advisory.
As I was working this list a common theme became characters that are in extraordinary situations who might be in over their heads and probably don’t have the whole story.
