The Flash is one of the more underrated superheroes out there. He's an integral member of not just the Justice League, but of the entire DC universe in general. He's so prevalent in comic lore that a whole bunch of different people (a few of which are related to one another) have donned the lightening tights, each with their own unique fan following.

As such, there are many different variations on the character and dozens of formats the character has been utilized in. Be it video games, films, animated series, or the multitude of heroes who embody him in the comic books, The Flash is in virtually every form of pop culture, in one way or another.

We've decided to compile some of our favorites here. Do you like to play as him the DC vs Mortal Kombat or his appearances in the Lego Batman game franchise? Is The '90s "Flash" show your favorite or is it the new CW version? Are you a Barry Allen fan or Wally West? Or maybe Jay Garrick is your Flash?

Here's the chance to see where it all lines up. What are the greatest interpretations of The Flash ever? Vote up your favorites!
