* EvilOrphanageLady: Miss Pritchard's orphanage in a ''Max Mercury'' story set in 1910s New York. Mrs P hates children, but gets money from the city to raise them. She ''also'' gets a cut from child-hating toymaker Archimedes Schott, for supplying him with cheap labour. And then she takes the kids' wages as well. When Schott tells her he's going to burn down his factory, because Max has pressurised him into giving the kids more rights, she decides to send them to work that day anyway. (And yes, Archimedes looks a lot like his presumed descendent, Winslow.)

* SidekickGraduationsStick: Wally ''was'' the most successful example. His run as the Flash lasted for over 20 years, he was a founding member of more than half-a-dozen teams, and a regular guest star in many other series. (Fun Flash Fact: Wally's series, ''Flash'' Vol. 2, ran to issue 247. Barry's run in ''Flash'' Vol. 1 was from 105 to 350, only '''246''' issues.) After Flashpoint and The Comicbook/{{New 52}}, however, Wally no longer exists. His graduation stuck so hard they had to ''reboot the universe'' to un-stick it.

This also didn't "un-stick", ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' brought him back and gave him his legacy back. Wally truly earned his name as "The Flash".

* KidAppealCharacter: The Flash is pretty popular among children, both InUniverse and out.


Added DiffLines:

* RedIsHeroic: All the Flashes' costumes are red.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: {{Live Action Adaptation}}s just love making Jay and Barry relatives. In ''Series/TheFlash1990'', they're brothers. In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', [[spoiler: Jay is the AlternateSelf of Barry's father from Earth-3]]. It remains to be seen if the ''Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse'' will follow suit.

Finally, the thing that would forever after define the Flash legacy showed up: the Speed Force. After a trip through time, Wally began to transform into energy. Max Mercury, a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] speedster, showed up, explaining that Wally had touched a quasi-mystical dimension, "beyond the speed of light", that was the [[MetaOrigin source of all speedsters' powers]]. Max became TheObiWan to Wally and later, to Bart. Wally was eventually sucked in, but managed to come out the other side due to [[ThePowerOfLove the power of his love]] for Linda.
