What would it be like to wake up one day and realize that you were a superhero? Ask Barry.
Barry Allen was an ordinary young man. He was smart, he had a job at the police department, and he liked a pretty girl named Iris West. Life was pretty normal - at least, there were no super villains running around. But one day, everything changed.
A lightning bolt and various other factors, ranging from unnamed chemicals to a nuclear reactor meltdown, suddenly allowed Barry to access the Speed Force. He could now run, think, and react at impossibly fast speeds. Soon, he was using his newfound powers to protect the people of Central City, with the help of his friends and their scientific lab. Barry had become a superhero - The Flash.
The original Flash comic book hit the shelves in 1939. A number of characters have carried the mantle of the Flash, including Jay Garrick, Wally West, and Jesse Quick. Most incarnations of the Flash have joined forces with other superheroes, such as the Justice League or Teen Titans.

Images of the crucifixion of Jesus, also known as the Passion, are common in Christian churches and around the Easter holiday. Some people wear a small cross with Jesus on it as a pendant.
That the execution of Jesus is a historical fact is corroborated by several non-Christian sources, including letters from the first century, the Jewish historian Josephus's Antiquities of the Jews, the Babylonian Talmud, and The Annals by the Roman historian Tacitus.
Did you know? According to A Critical Lexicon and Concordance to the English and Greek New Testament, the Greek word stauros, translated "cross," "never means two pieces of wood joining at any angle." Instead, it refers to "an upright pale or stake to which Romans nailed those who were thus to be crucified."
The "t" shape common in depictions of Christ impaled is likely derived from symbols important to pre-Christian religions. Crosses can be found in prehistoric art and ancient artifacts from around the world. It resembles the Egyptian ankh, the European sun wheel, and was used as a sign of the god Tammuz in Chaldea.
Would you like to draw a picture of Jesus on a cross? This easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial can show you how. All you will need is a pencil, an eraser, and a sheet of paper.
