Originally, the city was defended in the 1940s by the original Flash, Jay Garrick, against such villains as the Fiddler, the Thinker, the Shade, and the Turtle; coinciding with the real-world cancellation of All-Star Comics (the last venue in which Garrick's adventures were seen, as part of the Justice Society of America), Garrick went into retirement in the early 1950s after the forced breakup of the original Justice Society due to McCarthyism. // Events and trends The 1940s were dominated by World War II, the most destructive armed conflict in history. ...

Under DC's multiverse system between the early 1960s and 1985-1986's Crisis on Infinite Earths miniseries, Keystone City was located on Earth-Two (home of the Justice Society and DC's Golden Age characters), in the same space as Earth-One's Central City (Earth-One being the home of the Silver Age superheroes, and Central City being the home of the Silver Age Flash, Barry Allen). With the changes rendered to DC's fictional reality due to Crisis, Keystone and Central became twin cities.

In the early 1960s, Garrick was shown coming out of retirement (in the classic story "The Flash of Two Worlds," published in The Flash (volume 1) #123 in 1961), and continued to defend Keystone; starting in the late 1980s, Keystone became the home of Wally West, the current Flash. Most of Wally's "rogues gallery" of foes, including the Weather Wizard, Mirror Master, Captain Boomerang, and Gorilla Grodd, also began to plague Keystone instead of Central City. Over the years, many of these rogues have fluctuated between criminal acts and crimefighting. With the events of the recent Identity Crisis crossover, it has become apparent that this is due to the actions of the brainwashed supervillain known as the Top.
