After being struck by lightening in his laboratory, police scientist Barry Allen found that he could move at super-sonic speed. Inspired by the Flash of a generation before, Allen assumed the same identity.
To conceal his own true identity Allen created a scarlet and yellow costume which he treated to expand when exposed to nitrogen in the atmosphere. To store the costume for ready access to make a quick change to the Flash he stores the compressed costume inside his signet ring.
