    No Caption Provided

    Barry Allen first comes in contact with Darwin Elias at a science exhibit where Mob Rule tries to steal a genome recorder that Elias invented. Barry manages to stop Mob Rule as the Flash, but is troubled at finding that one of Mob Rule's members seems to be his old friend Manuel Lago. Barry returns Elias' invention, and would later confide in the Doctor, discussing the events of the robbery. Elias welcomes the discussion of the events, but would also take a scientific interest in The Flash. Later, he runs some tests on The Flash, monitoring his brain activity while tapped into the Speed Force. Elias points out that while Barry is able to physically take advantage of the Speed Force, his mind is not doing the same, and suggests that he practice trying to think as fast as he can run. Barry manages to do so, having his mind slow down the world around him, allowing him to view events before they happen, and predict every variable and outcome.

He wants to gain control of the Speed Force so he can use it to change the world in a more effective manner than the Flash.He eventually tries to put a stop to both Flash and Reverse Flash, seeing them as reckless and destructive, but fails in doing so.
