"The Fastest Man Alive" is a phrase DC Comics has used throughout its existence to announce its trademark speedster character The Flash. The first Flash was Jay Garrick from the 1940s until 1956. Barry Allen recieved the title when Jay went into semi-retirement, and Allen was the Fastest Man Alive until 1985 when he merged into the Speed Force and became one with the Other Side of the Light. Next to carry the title is Wally West who was Allen's nephew.

There has always been an ongoing feud between fans of The Flash and those of Superman. A race was held once between Barry Allen and Supes. The Flash won, but there were complications during the race which question its validity. Maybe someday there will be a rematch.
