Author: Iris Allen
First Appearance: Flash v.2 #75 (April 1993)
The biography of Barry Allen, written by his widow, Iris. The book has featured in several storylines, first appearing in an edition from the future during The Return of Barry Allen (1993). The time-lost Eobard Thawne had brought a copy with him to visit his idol, before learning he would become the Flash’s greatest enemy.
The book next appeared in Race Against Time (1996). Abra Kadabra and Dr. Polaris had found the discarded copy, then proceeded to act on their knowledge of the future... and kidnap Iris to make sure she wrote it!
The book has shown up occasionally since then, but a more frequent theme has been the burden of Iris’s own knowledge of the future.
In 1997, DC released The Life Story of the Flash, a hardcover (now in TPB form as well) combining comic-style sequences and prose, with the conceit that it was Iris’ book. The cover even credited the book to Iris Allen. Actually written by Mark Waid and Brian Augustyn, it featured back story on both Barry and Iris, retellings of key stories, and cryptic hints about the future.
Anyhow, Terminal Velocity revolves around Wally West getting a glimpse of the future and then doing all sorts of Machiavellian things in a gambit to avoid that future. We are led to believe that he saw himself be killed, but in reality, he saw his girlfriend, Linda Park be killed. So he vowed to do anything he could to save her, even if it meant manipulating his fellow speedsters Impulse and Jesse Quick to do so. In the end, Wally is sucked into the Speed Force – but can his love for Linda bring him back? Ask Taylor Dayne – she will let you know if that is possible. Mark Waid wrote it and a variety of artists worked on this storyline, from Mike Wieringo in #0, Salvador Larroca for the next four issues, then a split issue between Salvador Larroca and Carlos Pacheco and finally the last issue, the double-sized #100, with art by Salvador Larroca, Carlos Pacheco AND Oscar Jimenez.

"Flashpoint" is an American comic book crossover story arc published by DC Comics. Consisting of an eponymous core limited series and a number of tie-in titles, the storyline premiered in May 2011. The core miniseries was written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kubert. In its conclusion, the series radically changes the status quo for DC Universe leading into the publisher's 2011 relaunch, The New 52.
Flashpoint details an altered DC Universe in which only Barry Allen, Kid Flash and Booster Gold seem to be aware of significant differences between the regular timeline and the altered one, including Cyborg's place as the world's quintessential hero, Superman's detention by the government and a Thomas Wayne version of Batman who spends "his days running Wayne Casinos."
Consisting of a five-issue run, the series crossed over with Booster Gold, sixteen separate three-issue miniseries, and a number of one-shots beginning in June 2011. DC announced that Flash #12 would be the last in the series; a thirteenth issue had been announced for sale on May 25, 2011, but was withdrawn.
