Fictional character background

The Black Flash essentially fulfils the same role as Death for those who possess super-speed in the DC Universe, returning them to the source of their powers: the Speed Force.

It is not clear whether the Black Flash exists because the speedster characters are simply too fast for traditional Death to capture, or as some sort of bizarre side-effect to their connection to the Speed Force.


It came for Wally West to draw him back to the Speed Force, but instead took Linda, Wally's girlfriend, into the Speed Force. It later returns to try and take Wally again, freezing time except for those who possess a connection to the Speed Force. Max Mercury, Jay Garrick, and Jesse Quick all attempt to assist Wally by distracting the Black Flash; Wally finally defeats the Black Flash by racing it to the end of time, to a point where Death would have no meaning, causing it to dissipate.

The Getty Center, seen from the Central Garden The Getty Center in Los Angeles, California, USA, is the current home of the J.

The Black Flash should not be confused with other personifications of death in the DC Universe, such as the Black Racer and Death of the Endless. Although an issue of Captain Atom suggests Death of the Endless, the Black Racer, and Nekron are all aspects of the same force, Neil Gaiman (creator of Death of the Endless) disagrees with this idea, stating that his creation is the ultimate personification of Death. As such, whether there is a connection between the Black Flash and Death of the Endless is uncertain. The Black Racer is a fictional deity and avatar of death published by DC Comics. ... The Endless (Destiny, Death, Dream, Destruction, Desire, Despair and Delirium) are a group of beings who embody various aspects of the universe in the DC comic book series The Sandman, by Neil Gaiman. ...
