The best characters on CW’s The Flash consist of ordinary people and masked superheroes - and sometimes both. By day, Barry Allen (played by Grant Gustin) is a forensic scientist, but by night he’s The Flash, the fastest superhero this side of Central City.
Taking place within The CW’s ever-expanding Arrowverse, the best characters on The Flash often intersect with other DC mainstays, though sometimes they don’t always know who they’re really dealing with. Who’s your favorite character on The Flash? Wally West (Kid Flash) is an easy favorite, and Eobard Thawne (Reverse Flash) is easily one of the coolest villains in all of DC fandom.
