  1. Steven says:

    Wasn’t he the Flash?

  2. James Joyner says:

    Heh. Nope:

    Jay Garrick was the Golden Age (ne Earth II) Flash

    Barry Allen was the Silver Age (ne Earth I) Flash.

    Wally West, formerly Kid Flash, replaced Allen after the Crisis.

    Tanaka Rei was the Earth-D Flash, who I really don’t remember.

    Oh, but I AM The Flash… Didn’t you see how quickly I wrote MT-Blacklist?

    By the way, wouldn’t it be funny if I knew someone named Barry Garrick? 🙂
