Reading: Jay Garrick

We’re not gods, we’re men, who, for whatever reason, have been given extraordinary abilities. The question you need to ask yourself is, what kind of hero are you gonna be?
—Jay Garrick to Barry Allen[src]

Dr. Jason “Jay” Garrick [ 1 ] is a veteran speedster from Earth-3 and a vigilante known as the Flash, stylized as the Crimson Comet. Jay was found by Hunter Zolomon/Zoom, an evil meta-human speedster from Earth-2, and held as a prisoner in Hunter ‘s lair on Earth-2, forced to wear an iron mask that dampened his powers. His appoint and mantle as the Flash were taken by Hunter to carry out facades as separate of a plan to inspire false hope in Central City. After being rescued by Team Flash, Jay found his way rear to Earth-3 with the serve of Harry and Jesse Wells. Jay Garrick would work with Barry Allen, the Flash of Earth-1, in his fight against the speedster known as Savitar. He subsequently sacrificed himself and took Wally West ‘s place in the Speed Force prison after Wally was tricked into freeing Savitar, thereby taking his position in said prison. Thanks to Cisco Ramon, he was late freed from the Speed Force, returning and aiding Team Flash in Savitar ‘s final kill. Barry late voluntarily took his place in the Speed Force, as the Speed Force prison had become unstable without an resident. Jay would go on to remain as the Flash for another year until 2018 when a mission to help save Barry ‘s Central City made him realize that it was meter for him to retire and train a new Flash on his worldly concern to take over for him. At some indicate, Jay met and married Joan Williams after feeling a limited connection with her. After the events of the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Jay and Joan were restored on Earth-Prime and they began living in Keystone City. [ 2 ] In a electric potential future, he is dearly known as “ Uncle Jay ” to the Nora and Bart West-Allen, and acted as a mentor to the latter. At some point in this potential future, Jay was killed by Godspeed in front of Bart, causing Bart to seek revenge. [ 2 ] however, Nora and Bart would belated accidently cause “ temporal fissures ” which resulted in Jay surviving Godspeed ‘s attack in the stream timeline. [ 1 ]

early life

little is known of Jay ‘s early life, but given that his surname is Garrick preferably than Allen like his Earth-1 doppelgänger, it ‘s implied that Jay ‘s father did n’t play any function in his upbringing .

Activities as the Flash

At some point, Jay Garrick was given the might of superhuman focal ratio through a connection to the Speed Force. erstwhile after he gained his powers, Jay began helping the public as a hero known as “ the Flash ”, stylized as the “ Crimson Comet ”. [ 3 ] Jay besides witnessed a personal tragedy at some degree in his animation and traveled binding in time to stop it occurring, but alone succeeded in making the site bad. sometime after this, Jay learned to live with the consequences of his decision and decided to never use prison term travel for personal reasons ever again. [ 4 ] In 2014, Jay was confronted by Hunter Zolomon/Zoom, an evil speedster from another earth. Wishing to steal Jay ‘s accelerate as a remedy from the deadly side-effects of the Velocity serums he overdosed on, Zoom defeated Jay in a titanic confrontation but was ineffective to devise a way to take Jay ‘s accelerate and alternatively resorted to imprisoning him on his own worldly concern within his base of operations. Hunter besides put an iron mask on Jay with a dampener in order to suppress his speed. Following this, Hunter was bored of always playing the villain and wanted to have playfulness playing the hero, and he took Jay ‘s name and identity upon his own earth to give people delusive hope under his heroic verse character, only to take it away from them as his alter-ego and true personality, Zoom. [ 5 ] [ 6 ]

Helping Barry Allen

Jay was finally joined by Jesse Wells, and belated, speedster Barry Allen, the Flash of Earth-1. He would continually knock on the glass. Barry soon realized that Jay was trying to communicate, but Jesse told him to let it go. Barry and Jesse finally realized Jay was not using Morse code, but a 5×5 tapdance code normally used by POWs. The two began to work together to decipher his message. Barry and Jesse discovered the first part of his message spelled J-A-Y as in Jay Garrick. Barry stated that “ Jay ” was alert, but not with them, believing Hunter was Jay. In response, Jay became stressed. good as Barry got Jay to calm down enough to try to explain what he meant, Zoom ran in and warned Jay not to talk to them again. Jay watched in horror as Zoom pummeled Barry. finally, Barry and Jesse were rescued by their friends, but before they could help Jay, Zoom arrived. While Killer Frost pinned down Zoom to allow Barry and the others to escape, Barry promised Jay that they would return to rescue him. When Zoom returned to his lair with his die clock leftover, Jay was on the spur of the moment horrified by his return. [ 7 ]

New inmates

Jay encountered a newly temp convict, Wally West, who was asking where he was. He attempted to use tap code, but Wally did n’t understand it. Zoom then spoke to the new prisoner, before speeding off and taking Wally with him, leaving him entirely once more. [ 5 ] Caitlin Snow had an meeting with Jay while he was tapping the glass, but was cut off by her doppelgänger, Killer Frost, noticing her. Killer Frost had grown annoyed by Jay ‘s tap and stated if she could get her powers to work, the first thing she would do would be to “ shut him up ”. When Caitlin asked who he was, Killer Frost stated she did n’t know but concluded that Zoom must need him for something. After Killer Frost was freed, Jay noticed she was going to kill Caitlin and tried to warn the latter. He then witnessed Zoom murdering Killer Frost. Zoom threatened to hurt Jay if Caitlin tried to escape again. soon after, she was taken away by Zoom. [ 8 ]

last escaping zoom

After Joe West was abducted and imprisoned on Earth-2 by Hunter following a bungled try to stop him without Barry, Hunter revealed Jay ‘s identity to Joe and the circumstances of his capture. After Zoom ‘s get the better of, Jay was rescued and taken to Earth-1, where Cisco and Harry removed the mask. Jay was confused as to why they all looked shock towards him, particularly Barry. After reclaiming his undifferentiated and destroying the disguise, Jay noticed Hunter ‘s helmet. Harry explained what it was supposed to stand for and Jay decided to claim the helmet for himself and inspire the hope it was meant to. After thanking Team Flash for his rescue, Jay transported Harry and Jesse spinal column to Earth-2 through the rupture, with the two bright to help Jay find his way back to Earth-3. [ 6 ]

Consequences of prison term travel

During his stay on Earth-2 Harry informed Jay, silent confused as to why Barry was particularly shocked to see him, that Jay ‘s Earth-1 doppelgänger was Henry Allen, Barry ‘s dead person forefather. He besides told him that Barry ‘s mother was murdered when he was 11 by the Reverse-Flash. Fearing Barry ‘s inexperience may lead him to clock time traveling to forge a better life for himself, Jay kept an eye on Barry. His suspicions proved compensate, as before Jay could return to Barry ‘s property, the younger speedster decided to undo Nora ‘s death, and created the Flashpoint timeline, before having Eobard Thawne restore the event, creating so far another alter timeline. After Barry discovered some dismay changes to world, Barry attempted to go back and change clock time yet again. This prison term, however, Jay intercepted him in the Speed Force, pulling the young speedster out and landing them both in 1998. Taking Barry to a diner, Jay had a heart-to-heart lecture with Barry. He revealed he is mindful he is the belated Henry ‘s doppelgänger, Jay offered his sympathies and explained how he understood Barry ‘s reasons for wanting to save his parents. however, Jay stressed the consequences of time change of location and that once an consequence is altered, it can not be restored to precisely as it was earlier. Jay told Barry that he would need to learn how to live with the consequences of his actions and keep moving forward. Barry, though torment, finally agreed as both Jay and Barry returned to their homes. [ 4 ]

Joining forces with Barry Allen

His job done, Jay returned to Earth-3 and resumed his flash activities. One sidereal day, while foiling a bank looting by The Trickster, Jay received some unexpected aid from Barry Allen, who asked Jay for his aid in defeating Savitar. Jay returned with Barry to Earth-1 and enlightened him on the history of Savitar. Barry went to do some across-the-board research but found nothing. Jay rather prompted him to go and spend time with his love ones until something came up. That evening, Team Flash tracked the Philosopher ‘s Stone ‘s energy touch and pinpointed Alchemy ‘s placement. Jay and Barry sped over to stop him alone to be confronted by Savitar himself. While Barry dealt with Alchemy, Jay took on Savitar but was wholly outmatched by the metallic speedster, who viciously pummeled, threw around and beat down the elder speedster all across Central City, before finally coming to a break in an alley. As Jay lay broken and defeated on the reason, Savitar angrily told Garrick that this was not his fight and unsheathed his gauntlet sword to kill him. Garrick was saved however when Barry sealed the Philosopher ‘s Stone back in its breast, causing Savitar to disappear into thinly air, leaving Garrick safe but badly hurt .
Jay recuperated in the S.T.A.R. Labs hospital while team Flash worked on stopping Savitar and Alchemy. When Savitar reappeared, Jay tried to get up to help Barry but was besides badly hurt to do indeed, paving the way for Wally West to do so rather. After Savitar was sent aside again, Team Flash searched for a means to get rid of the Philosopher ‘s Stone wholly to prevent Savitar from ever returning. Jay suggested throwing the chest and the pit into the Speed Force and theorized that if Barry ran directly behind him with the breast, he could siphon off some of Jay ‘s speed and achieve the momentum needed to open a portal despite the interference from the Stone. The design was successful but had the unanticipated side-effect of blasting Barry into the future, where he witnessed Iris fail at the hands of Savitar. Realizing what had happened, Jay tracked Barry down, pulled him back into the Speed Force and returned him to the portray. Barry was hysterical over what he ‘d seen, but Jay calmed him down, reminding that the future was not set in stone. Following this, Jay returned to Earth-3. [ 9 ]

imprisonment in the Speed Force

A while after his restitution to his home, Jay was contacted by Vibe who informed him that Barry had become trapped in the Speed Force in his efforts to rescue Wally West from Savitar ‘s prison. Jay immediately entered the Speed Force and found Barry being confronted by a Speed Force embodiment in the form of Leonard Snart, whom Jay promptly hurled away with a speed-tackle. The avatar however countered with a gust from its Cold accelerator, sneeringly declaring that Garrick was getting slow in his ‘Golden Age ‘. As the avatar fired again, Barry grabbed Garrick ‘s helmet and deflected the savage, causing the embodiment to stand down. He and Barry then entered West ‘s prison and gently escorted him out. Jay, however, did not follow, rather choosing to take Wally ‘s position despite Barry begging him not to. Handing over his helmet for use as a life-line to Vibe, Jay sedately acknowledged that for the clock being, his race was over. He then encouraged Barry to save Iris and stop Savitar once and for all. Barry tearfully promised to return the helmet and save Jay one sidereal day, bid the elder speedster farewell and left with Wally, leaving Jay to relive the worst moment of his biography over and over. [ 10 ] Garrick remained in the Speed Force prison for an indeterminable measure of time due to the nature of prison term within it but his mind remained unharmed and phone. finally, he abruptly and unwittingly freed from the Speed Force prison by Killer Frost and Savitar, themselves having been flim-flam Cisco, who had altered the Speed Force Bazooka into a skeleton key. Jay super-speeded out of the portal, swatting aside Savitar as he did therefore and took up status alongside the arriving Team Flash, accepting his trademark helmet back from Barry .
While Gypsy and Vibe conduct with Frost, Jay joined Barry and Wally in a high-speed pursuit of Savitar through a forest but was brought down with the others by a lightning attack from Savitar. Jay recovered just in time to witness Savitar ‘s death and erase at the hands of Barry and Iris. completely free once more, Jay stayed on to attend the funeral of H.R. Wells, during which a Speed Force storm threatened Central City and Earth-1, during which another portal site opened in battlefront of the group. Barry Allen realized that he had to take Savitar ‘s place in the Speed Force as repentance for his actions. As Barry bade farewell to his family and friends, Jay rather chose to look on stoically and say nothing as Barry Allen stepped into the Speed Force and vanished. Following this, Jay returned to Earth-3 allowing Jesse to return to Earth-2. [ 11 ]

Averting a nuclear explosion

Jay arrived on Earth-1 after Jesse Quick brought him over to ask for his help in stopping a nuclear fail that ‘d already begun to detonate. Jay was surprised to learn that Barry was able to interact with non-speedsters when in Flashtime, calling it “ a hell of a newfangled trick ” as he did n’t know how Barry was able to do that. Jay refused to send the bomb into the Speed Force after Barry mentioned Harry suggested that is what he should do. He explained that not only would that risk destroying the Speed Force everlastingly but besides every speedster throughout space, fourth dimension and the multiverse would lose their accelerate immediately. Jay pointed out that Harry did n’t know much about the Speed Force and that no one truly knew about its nature and that the Speed Force was an essential region of the multiverse and no one knew what the consequences of destroying it would be. Focusing on the bomb itself, Jay explained in nuclear fission enormous energy is created by a chain chemical reaction of atoms splitting and releasing neutrons, making it closely impossible to reverse the process. theoretically, stability could be restored by offsetting the loss of batch by nuclear fusion. Another more bright method would be to cool it down. With Killer Frost ‘s serve, the speedster team attempted to cool down the bombard. As Frost attempted it, she got hot reducing the potency of the abilities .
The speedster team then attempted to throw three lightning bolts at the bomb calorimeter frankincense producing nuclear coalition by exposing it to an sum of energy peer to the measure it was giving off. however, Jay was n’t able to. He was n’t used to using his accelerate for long periods. He became fatigued, stating that his legs not working as they once did due to age. Apologizing for not being able to help Barry and Jesse much further, Jay was forced to exit “ Flashtime ”.

finally, Barry caused a Speed Force storm to stop the fail. Jay said it was clock time for the “ Crimson Comet ” to return to Earth-3. He gave credit to Iris for her depart in the solution. The experience had drained Jay ‘s glucose level and Caitlin recommended respite. Jay admitted that he would do nothing but rest. He had been at the hero game for a long time. After his feel with the bomb calorimeter, he considered doing something new, starting with training person to take over his duties as the Flash. [ 3 ]

Impending crisis

Jay had an assistant called Joan Williams, with whom he fell in love. He recruited her to help him to cope with his depleting Speed Force energy and, at some point, they got married. Since he predicted that a crisis was coming, Jay studied different Earths aboard Joan. When Barry Allen went to Earth-3 to see if Jay could help him heal from an antimatter injury, Jay introduced his wife Joan to him and explained how they met. They found a way to project Barry ‘s awareness into the future to see what was going to happen after the latter told Jay what he wanted to do to prepare for the crisis, in which Barry purportedly died. Later, Jay and Joan sent Barry back to his apartment on Earth-1. [ 12 ] During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Jay was portray on Earth-3 when it was hit by a wave of antimatter, killing him. [ 13 ] He was restored a calendar month late, after the Paragons and the Spectre created a new universe. [ 14 ]

New multiverse

When Jay foremost started to time travel, he ended up fighting Nazis in World War II before live on and off in the past for 16 years. [ 1 ] After they were restored on Earth-Prime, Jay and Joan Williams began living in Keystone City. Jay ‘s consistency began getting older and at points he needed to use a cane in regulate to walk. [ 2 ] After forty days, Jay ‘s Speed Force saturation increased and his powers were restored just in time for him to help Barry with an united states army of Godspeed clones that were attacking Central City. however, equitable as Jay suited up, a group of Godspeed clones showed improving and kidnapped him so they could lure Bart West-Allen into a trap due to the near kinship that Bart and Jay form in the future. The group of Godspeed clones that kidnaped Jay began to feed off of his speed, leaving him with nothing left when Bart showed up at the cathedral where he was being held. Bart was then attacked in the cathedral by the Godspeeds while Jay was unconscious, when Barry and his daughter Nora West-Allen arrived to help. Jay then woke up and helped Barry get Bart out of there after Cisco Ramon arrived and trapped the Godspeed clones in a synthetic information trap. Jay subsequently helped Barry project his awareness into August Heart ‘s beware. [ 2 ] Since Team Flash needed all of the help that it could get in order to stop the Godspeed war, Barry called in the Speed Force. The Speed Force then restored Jay ‘s Speed Force energy so he could be at full moon military capability when fighting the Godspeed clones. During the fight with the Godspeed clones, Jay charged his helmet with a tide of Speed Force energy before throwing it to a group of Godspeed clones, knocking them all out. After failing to stop the Godspeed united states army, Barry decided to give Godspeed the organic speed that he wanted. While Barry faced the recently recharged Godspeed, Jay warned Barry that because Godspeed had organic amphetamine and merely reabsorbed all his clones, he might be faster than Barry. At one bespeak during Barry ‘s contend with Godspeed, Bart was about to join the crusade but Jay managed to calm Bart down, telling him to trust Barry. After Godspeed ‘s kill, Jay attended Barry and Iris ‘ vow renewal ceremony alongside his wife Joan. During the ceremony, Joan suggested that they renew their vows and Jay told her he would marry her again in a pulse. [ 15 ]

potential futures

Bart, sometimes you have to take a risk. Sometimes you have to go with your gut… and is it impulsive? Maybe. But sometimes it’s right.
—Bart West-Allen quoting Jay Garrick[src]

In a possible future, Jay was one of Bart West-Allen ‘s speedster mentors along with his beget Barry Allen and his uncle Wally West. According to Bart, Jay was the only one who saw his impulsiveness as lastingness and not as a helplessness, claiming that sometimes you have to take risks. Jay and Bart besides formed a close up kinship to the point where Bart called him “ Uncle Jay ”. [ 2 ] In another possible future, in 2049, Jay was among the heroes summoned by the Spectre to help Bart and Nora defeat Magog and his allies. During the battle with Magog and his allies, Jay, Supergirl, Wally West, and martian Manhunter teamed up to take down Kal-El until Bart and Nora defeated Magog. After the battle, Jay met with Barry and Wally in the Hall of Justice to discuss his pride in Bart and Nora before the Spectre interrupted him to warn of an approaching threat. [ 16 ]

Erased futures

In an erase future, by the year of 2049, Jay became a long-familiar trope and superhero on Earth-1. [ 17 ] In another erase future, by the class of 2049, Jay was killed by Godspeed in front of Bart West-Allen, which traumatized Bart and made him see Godspeed precisely as his father saw Eobard Thawne, as an arch-nemesis. [ 2 ] In another erase future, by the year of 2049, Jay had married Rose alternatively of Joan Williams after Nora West-Allen and Bart accidently caused “ temporal fissures ” when they chased Godspeed through clock. [ 1 ]


It’s just that all feels so hopeless.”
“It never is, I promise you that.
—Nora West-Allen and Jay Garrick[src]

Jay has is a good-natured and kind man. He shares many traits with his late Earth-1 counterpart, Henry Allen, including his feel for nature, intelligence, wonder for Barry Allen, and the ability to control his temper even when having undergo a frightful ordeal. Jay showed himself to be a humble man vitamin a well, respectfully calling Barry by their shared mantle, “ Flash ”, displaying his complaisance to the Earth-1 speedster who saved his life and acknowledging him as an equal and hero. Jay was not without his need to display his anger, using his vibrating hand to split the speed-dampening mask that Zoom had used on him in half. Jay was besides adequate to of appreciating poetic department of justice and irony, taking up Hunter ‘s helmet as it was originally a symbol of hope on Earth-2 as explained by Harrison Wells, and Jay smiled, taking it with him and adding it to his uniform, hoping to make a symbol for department of justice back home. He besides did this partially out of revenge against Hunter for stealing his identity, and besides as a memento of this gamble. Jay has been shown to care for Barry after learning of his past and that he is his asleep forefather ‘s doppelgänger and has kept an eye on him, fearing he may make a mistake out of grief. rightly assumed Jay intercepted Barry when he attempted to alter time yet again and Jay had a candid talk with him on the consequences of time travel, revealing he made the lapp error himself once. This allows Barry to realize the timeline will never be the lapp as it once was and allows Barry to move on with his life sentence, his current life. Since interacting more with Barry, he has grown perceptibly closer and protective of Barry, like his Earth-1 counterpart. Given Jay ‘s cognition of being Henry Allen ‘s doppelgänger, he has likely begun to see Barry as a deputy son and authentically caring for his wellbeing, becoming slightly protective of him. He has become slightly of a mentor to Barry and taken him on as a scholar in the ways of being a speedster. Given his longevity and presume decades of know, Barry tends to defer to Jay ‘s personal expertness on the Speed Force and vigilantism. He surely seems cutting on giving Barry the benefit of his cognition without the detriment of his personal mistakes. Jay is held in high see by the younger speedsters of Earth-1 and 2 in particular, who see him as an about elder-statesman speedster role-model for his great wisdom and have and is frequently consulted by them for advice on opponents, training in mastering their powers or enlisting his help on important missions. In a possible future, Jay had taken a much more open watch to capricious actions knowing that sometimes following one ‘s gut was the right choice. [ 2 ]

Powers and abilities


  • Speed Force connection/Meta-human physiology: Jay possesses a natural connection to the Speed Force, allowing him to perform physical feats well-beyond normal human capabilities. Despite his relatively advanced age, Jay’s conditioning is similar to the much younger Barry’s, able to continue battling for long durations.
    • Accelerated healing factor: As a speedster, Jay’s cells are capable of regenerating at an accelerated rate, allowing him to heal rapidly from injuries and resist disease.
    • Bodily vibration: Jay has the ability to vibrate his cells and overall parts of his body on command for various effects, as shown when he vibrated his hand to split the iron mask that was put on him by Zoom, destroying it.[6] He had enough control of this ability to break only a piece of a mug to demonstrate how time was changed it could not be truly turned back the way it was.[4]
    • Electrokinesis: Jay produces orange electricity from his body when he taps into the Speed Force highlightning his natural, unaltered connection to it.[6]
    • Superhuman agility: Jay possesses far greater balance and bodily coordination than a normal human, allowing him to easily maneuver while moving at superhuman speeds.
    • Superhuman durability: Jay possesses far greater resilience and stamina than humanly possible (especially considering his older age), allowing him to easily withstand extreme exertion and impact forces, allowing him to easily survive with being savagely thrown around and beaten about by Savitar with only minor injuries.
    • Superhuman perception: Jay is easily capable of visually keeping up with and perceiving the movements and actions of other speedsters when they are moving at super-speed.
    • Superhuman reflexes: Jay’s reaction time is augmented to superhuman levels, allowing him to react to danger and events far faster than normal humans.
    • Superhuman speed: Jay is able to run at phenomenal superhuman speeds, as shown when he ran through a breach back to Earth-2 with Harry and Jesse.[6] He was fast enough to intercept Barry in the Speed Force when he tried to change the timeline again. Despite his immense speed, Jay Garrick was swiftly defeated by Savitar.
      • Interdimensional travel: Through the opening of a dimensional breach, Jay is able to push through the fabric of reality with his super-speed, letting him travel to different dimensions.
      • Superhuman momentum: Jay is able to generate great amounts of physical force through kinetic energy, simulating superhuman strength, notably allowing him to grab Barry while he was time traveling, and yank him out into 1998, causing Barry to be sent flying through the air and into a truck when he appeared. He was also able to send Savitar tumbling across the floor by striking him at super-speed, while the latter was freed from the Speed Force and was caught by surprise.
      • Time travel: Jay has proven to be adept regarding time travel, capable of intertwining between the past, present, and future at will. Jay has told Barry that he is able to travel through time as he has done it before, and has proven to be highly proficient in this ability, to where he can intercept other speedsters attempting to time travel through the Speed Force, and pull them from different points in time. He also seems to be aware what time he arrives at when time traveling, as he told Barry that they were in the 1990s, possibly from bringing themselves to that time on his own.[4] In addition, Jay seems capable of locating where other speedsters are in time as he found Barry Allen, who was five months in the future, and pulled him back to the present after Barry had been there for only a few minutes.[9]
    • Superhuman stamina: Jay is able to withstand the stress of moving at superhuman speeds, without showing signs of weakness or fatigue. However, due to Jay’s old age, he does not have as much stamina as he used to.[3]


In my experience, the answers usually tend to come in time.
—Jay Garrick[src]
  • Genius-level intellect/Physicist: Jay has shown to have knowledge of the 5 by 5 tap code as he used it to communicate with Barry Allen and Jesse Wells when the mask Zoom had locked onto Jay’s head prevented him from talking. Jay is also an exceptional scientist and engineer, working in a personal lab. He was noted by Gideon to be the foremost expert on antimatter, a substance that no member of Team Flash had knowledge of, proven by how he effortlessly realized Barry’s wound was hit by a pure dose of antimatter, which he noted would have killed him had it not been for his speed-healing. He was also able to analyze that antimatter signatures have been occurring over multiple Earths. Jay also developed a device called the neural hyper-collider and knew he could not use it but Barry could and that it would be able to project his consciousness past the antimatter wall of the speed force. Being a veteran speedster, Jay has extensive knowledge of the Speed Force and its capabilities, such as how to send objects into the dimension itself to keep them from being found by anyone. Jay also possesses a great deal of knowledge about the Speed Force’s lore, legends, and the culture of Speedsters.


  • Power-dampening tech: When Jay was held captive by Zoom, he had a mask locked onto his face, equipped with a dampener that kept Jay from using his powers.[6]

former weaknesses

  • Diminished performance: Jay, being much older than many of his contemporaries, suffers from diminishing physical capabilities, being unable to use his powers for as long, or as strenuously as younger speedsters, eventually leading him to retire from active duty.[3] After the Speed Force was restored by Barry and Iris West-Allen, Jay regained much of his speed, with Joan Williams noting that the Speed Force saturation in his body had gone zero to one hundred percent in forty days.[2]


original multiverse

Well, maybe I can continue that sentiment, take something from him, for a change, make it my own.
—Jay Garrick on his helmet[src]
  • The Flash suit: Jay wears a protective suit as his superhero alter-ego, The Flash. It is similar to Hunter Zolomon’s Flash suit but when he stole his identity, Hunter switched up the colors and designs of the suit when he stole Jay’s identity.[6]
  • Helmet: The helmet, originally from Hunter Zolomon, now belongs to Jay Garrick. After the defeat of Zoom, Jay got his suit back and decided to wear Hunter’s helmet as it originally symbolized hope to the people of Earth-2 and as a bit of revenge for stealing his identity.[6]
  • Interdimensional extrapolator: Jay has one of these devices, presumably given to him by Cisco Ramon.[12]

former equipment

  • Speed-dampening mask: During his imprisonment, Jay was forced to wear an iron full-faced mask that not only prevented him from speaking but also temporarily severed his connection to the Speed Force. After the combined efforts of Harry and Cisco removed it on Earth-1, Jay took great pride in destroying it, saying he never wanted to see it again.
