Created by Mark Waid and Mike Wieringo, Bart first made a cameo in The Flash #91 in 1994 before his full debut in issue #92. Born in the 30th century to Meloni Thawne and Don Allen, Bart Allen is part of a complex family tree of superheroes and supervillains. The character often appears as a member of the Young Justice and Teen Titans teams. For most of his superhero career, Bart was the sidekick to the Wally West version of The Flash. However, after West’s apparent death in the Infinite Crisis crossover event in 2006, Bart steps into the role of The Flash himself. Meanwhile, for the television series, they’ll have Bart be represented as a son of Barry, and seen alongside Nora West-Allen (Jessica Parker Kennedy).
