Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Based on the comic-strip character created by Gardner Fox and Harry Lampert, The Flash was a briefly popular fantasy-adventure TV series which ran from September 20, 1990, to July 19, 1991. John Wesley Shipp stars as police chemist Barry Allen, who, after being struck by a lightning bolt and doused with chemicals, transformed into The Flash, the fastest human being on earth. He was so fast at times that his movements were invisible to the human eye. In typical superhero fashion, the Flash was often pitted against colorfully costumed supervillains. Flash 2: Revenge of the Trickster is comprised of two hour-long Flash episodes, both starring Mark Hamill as a crazed magician turned master criminal. The feminine interest is provided by Amanda Pays as Tina McGee, the only person who knows that Barry Allen and Flash are one in the same.
