While working late on an experiment, college student Jay Garrick accidentally knocked over the hard water molecules he working on, and inhaled the fumes. While recovering in the hospital, it was discovered that the chemicals sped up Jay metabolism, giving him the ability to move, think, and react at super speed. While he originally used his power as a football player, Jay decided his power was better suited for crime fighting. Putting together a costume made of a scarlet sweater and boots, blue tights, and a silver helmet with gold wings, Jay became the Flash, using his super speed to battle crime in Keystone City. In 1949, Jay retired from heroics, and married his girlfriend, Joan, but years later, was talked back into action by his successor, Barry Allen, and continues his adventures to this day.
