‘The Flash’: Nora Dawn Allen’s Powers & History

Now that Iris and Barry’s daughter from the future has taken The Flash Season 5 trailer by storm, fans are wondering what her story is and how it will fit into Season 5. While we can’t know what the show has in store moving forward, we can look backwards to the comics for clues regarding the life and times of Nora West-Allen.

Without further ado – but with plenty of decades old comic spoilers – let’s dive into a brief history of Dawn Allen and how The Flash might incorporate her story.

Developing a Legacy


Iris with Dawn & Don in “The Life Story of the Flash” (1997)

While Nora arrived alone to visit her parents, her comic counterpart Dawn Allen usually has a partner in crime-fighting. Together, Dawn and her twin brother Don form a superhero team-up called the Tornado Twins. They were first introduced in Adventure Comics #373 in 1968, where they were merely “direct descendants” of Barry Allen who had not inherited his speed. But that changed after “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” and by 1991 they were reintroduced as Iris and Barry’s metahuman children who had to hide their powers on pain of death. Wally even learns from Iris that her kids died after saving the world from Dominators and her grandson was experimented on by the government. There’s hints of this kind of future on The Flash as well, given the introduction of Dominators during “Invasion!” and the phone call Barry made to Gideon in 2056 about having lost too many people.

As the years went on, the family tree expanded further and more details were added. Flash Vol. 2 #92 introduced Bart Allen in the flesh, revealing that he was Don’s son via a forbidden romance with Meloni Thawne. Their Romeo & Juliet-esque marriage was the cause of a lot of heartbreak, thanks to a centuries old family feud between the Allens and the Thawnes. At one point, Meloni and Iris even team up to rescue Bart from the clutches of his other grandfather before being forced to hide him somewhere in the past. Dawn’s own daughter Jenni first showed up in 1995, discovering her powers after a terrifying run-in with Dominators and exposing herself in order to save her father.

The most tragic part of all? Much like Barry never got a chance to meet his kids before dying, Dawn and Don didn’t get to spend much time with their children before being executed for treason for the simple crime of being metahumans who tried to help others. Not knowing her dad in the future would certainly explain her eagerness around him in the past.

Changing the Future


The twins debate using their powers against Iris’ wishes. (The Flash Vol. 2 #114)

If Nora does indeed hail from a reality as dark as Dawn’s, that would explain her forlorn speech to Cecile in “Therefore She Is” about not having much time. How could such a bleak backstory come into play on The Flash, which tries to maintain a lighter tone and clings to hope above all else? One way rests in a key part of Nora’s identity: the fact that she’s from the future. The show has previously played with time travel, subtly marking the difference between changing the past in “Flashpoint” and changing the future when it came to saving Iris from Savitar. Interestingly enough, Nora’s adventures thus far have followed a path similar to her father’s.

Her reasons for coming to 2018 are unclear, but it’s certain that helping Barry stop the satellite was a “big, big mistake” for Nora to make. The trailer even hints at her revealing a secret about the future to Barry, which might lead the team down another causal loop like the one in Season 3. But it’s important to remember that even if her personal future is dark and depressing, it’s still nothing but a potential outcome. Instead of letting the future’s inevitability weight them down like it has before, Barry and Iris help their daughter with a more enlightened understanding of time travel and the speed force. If nothing else, it’ll be fun to watch Barry teach his daughter the lessons he previously refused to learn.

The future as a malleable experience also has its roots in the comics, which recently allowed Barry and Iris to glimpse a possible future in which the Tornado Twins are criminals hell-bent on getting revenge against their father for not being around enough. Despite being shaken by the prospect, Barry and Iris have since resumed their relationship with the knowledge that just because it could happen doesn’t mean it will. When it comes to The Flash TV show, Nora currently seems like an angel – albeit one who makes as many mistakes as Barry – but what if her brother is the one who has gone rogue? Watching Barry, Iris and the rest of the team trying to save someone they haven’t even met yet would certainly be a new experience.

Nora Allen’s Powers



Nora’s powers are very similar to her father’s:

  • Connection to the speed force
  • Accelerated healing
  • Superhuman agility
  • Superhuman strength
  • Ability to time travel
  • Creation of vortexes
  • Enhanced senses
  • Phasing

Make room for XS!

The possibilities for how to incorporate Dawn’s origins into Nora’s story are endless, but they all promise to make good use of both time travel and family dynamics. And what more could we want from a show about a time traveling speedster whose ever-growing family keeps him on a heroic path?

As for Nora’s journey ahead, FANDOM caught up with actress Jessica Parker Kennedy at San Diego Comic-Con. According to Kennedy, she is definitely a Daddy’s girl. “Nora is a lot like Barry, the way that Barry was earlier on. She’s finding her footing. She’s goofy, she’s dorky, she very young-spirited, she’s prone to making mistakes and needing other people to clean them up — she’s in the experimental phase of her life.”

As for joining the show, Kennedy knew her character’s journey from the beginning. While Nora was lurking at Barry and Iris’ wedding, Kennedy knew exactly who she was and why she was there. “My favorite moment so far has been in the crossover where I talk to him at the wedding. There’s a sense of wondering and imagining what it would be like to meet your parent whom you’ve never met as a young person.”

Does that mean Barry isn’t alive in her timeline? Is that why her relationship with her mother is strained? Kennedy did confirm that her relationship with Iris would be different than her relationship with Barry. “Something has definitely happened that makes her feel more closer to her father than her mother. It’s something that you’ll find out relatively early on in this season.”

The Flash returns to the CW on Tuesdays this fall.

‘The Flash’: Nora’s Big Mistake Will Shake Things Up in Season 5

SPOILER ALERT: Warning, this article contains mild spoilers for The Flash Season 5. Proceed at your own risk.

The cast of The Flash gave a preview of the show’s 5th season today during San Diego Comic-Con. Season 4 ended with Team Flash outsmarting The Thinker (Neil Sandilands) and stopping the Enlightenment. It also revealed the identity of the season’s mystery girl as Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris‘ (Candice Patton) daughter Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy), a speedster from the future.

Nora and her “big mistake” will play a major role in Season 5 of The Flash. Barry and Iris will not only have to deal with the repercussions of her actions but also with being parents to an adult child. Not to mention, Nora brings with her some big secrets from the future.

What Is a Legacy?


Barry and Iris

With the 100th episode of The Flash on the horizon, the cast spent time during the panel looking back on their time on the show. They all expressed their gratitude at getting a chance to play these characters and shared memories from their first days of shooting. This is all especially fitting because producer Todd Helbing says Season 5 is focused on the theme of legacy. “Everyone is thinking about what it means,” he explained.

With Nora in the picture, this is especially true. Barry has a new responsibility with a daughter in his life. Grant Gustin says that Barry will take the patience he learned from Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and apply it to his relationship with Nora. And with fathers like Joe and Henry (John Wesley Shipp), Barry has big shoes to fill.

Hey, Our Kid Is Pretty Great!


Nora West Allen

Nora is going to throw a big wrench into the West-Allen family’s life. “It’s a brand new dynamic on the show. I think we’re all in very different head spaces about it,” says Gustin. “Nora is [clings] to Barry, and we don’t know why. And she’s kind of distant to Iris.” Candice Patton says that it’s hard for Iris to see Barry and Nora form an instant bond. She wants to find out what happened between her and her daughter that could cause such a coldness.

The Comic-Con trailer also hinted at an emotional scene between Barry and Nora. There is an event in the future that Barry wants to know about (typical) that seems to cause his daughter a great deal of pain. Could the reason Nora is so unwilling to let her father out of her sight have something to do with a certain Crisis of 2024? Only time will tell!

The Flash Season 5 premieres Tuesday, October 9, 2018, at 8 p.m. on the CW.

Black Soldier Found Dead In Maryland’s Deadly Flash Flood After Helping Stranger

The body of a Black National Guardsman who disappeared during treacherous floods in Maryland on Sunday was found in the Patapsco River Tuesday afternoon, Howard County police confirmed to Baltimore’s WBAL.

Local emergency crews used swift water rescue, truck, and ATVs in their search for Eddison Hermond, 39, an Air Force veteran and active-duty member of the Maryland Army National Guard, on Monday. Hermond, wearing a White t-shirt and Black shorts, was pulled underneath the water after he helped rescue a woman and her cat during devastating flooding in Ellicott City on Sunday afternoon, The Baltimore Sun reported. “He stepped over the ledge to try to get to me, and he was washed away,” Kate Bowman, who was helped by Hermond, said.

But what led Hermond to Bowman before his tragic disappearance and death? Here is what else we know about Hermond:

Hermond, who was 6 feet tall with an athletic build, had been visiting a local bar with friends when his day took a turn for the worse, Howard County Police Chief Gary Gardner said. The historic downpour ravaged homes and streets, with the water tragically carrying Hermond away seconds after he helped Bowman. Witnesses last saw the soldier being carried by the current toward the Patapsco River, Bonnie Hoppa, Hermond’s friend wrote on Facebook.

One of the soldier’s friends filed a missing person report with Howard County Police Department after his disappearance.

A “Hope altar” was erected for Hermond, with friends being encouraged to gather around it on Tuesday. Hoppa’s Facebook post was updated after learning about Hermond’s body being recovered, saying that she was waiting for confirmation on his death from official sources after Hermond’s family and next-of-kin had been notified.

There were no other reported deaths from the flood, making Hermond the only fatality as of Tuesday.

‘The Flash’ First Look: Why We’re Thrilled to See Iris West Suit Up

UPDATE (3/1/2018): The Flash released episodic photos of “Run Iris, Run”:













UPDATE (2/22/2018): The Flash released an official image of Iris suited up:


The FLASH Iris

Iris West — intrepid reporter, wife of Barry Allen and the current leader of the team on The Flash — will be suiting up this season to fight crime while Barry is in prison. This news broke earlier today via EW, who reported that actress Candice Patton will be wearing a super suit for a March episode. Since this episode is being filmed now, HollywoodNorth.buzz was able to snag some pics of Candice in action. Let’s take a look at Iris’ new suit!

Honey, Where’s My Super Suit?

In the comics, Iris West from Earth-1 never became a superhero. She did, however, give birth to superhero babies, speedster twins in fact, named Don and Dawn Allen. While they probably got their super speed from their dad, it’s possible they did get some genetic metahuman DNA from their mother also.

So far on the show, The Flash, Iris West — now Iris West-Allen — has never exhibited metahuman powers. It looks like that is all about to change when Iris suits up to take on some bad guys. Currently, we don’t know if she suits up just to conceal her identity or if she’s going to suit up with powers, like her hubby The Flash.

What you see, in the set photo above, is that Iris is wearing a black eye mask, similar to Black Canary‘s and a leather jacket, similar to Gypsy‘s. So that raises a few questions: 1.) is this Earth-1 Iris West Allen? 2.) If it is, does she have super speed? 3.) If she does have super speed, is it from a meta human energy source or is it man-made, like from the Velocity drug? 4.) If this isn’t Earth-1 Iris, which Earth is she from?

Happy Fans

No matter how many questions we may have about Iris suiting up, one thing is for sure, people are excited!

Morgandersfan on Twitter shared a few images of Iris West from New Earth, a comic book universe where Wally had speedster daughter named Iris (he named her after his aunt):

Knowledgispowa also shared the news, saying it was the “best news ever”:

Bethelderkin points out that Iris may have temporary powers because she’s pregnant with a speedforce baby:

Mspurple360 found this gem, where Candice told Kevin Smith how badly she wanted to suit up:

Whatever the circumstances, super powers or no super powers, we are here for super Iris.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8PM on The CW.

Why the Music Behind ‘The Flash’ Is So Important

While there are many reasons to tune into any show, the soundtrack is often one of the most frequently overlooked. However, it is also one of the most influential parts of the viewing experience. The music helps establish mood, characters, and other elements that an audience may not be immediately aware of. One show that does this well is The Flash

While composer, Blake Neely writes and oversees music for all the Arrowverse shows, he gives each show and their respective characters a unique sound. His work for each show is memorable, but the music for The Flash is unique and just plain fun. Not only does Neely give the Flash a memorable theme, but he also creates a contrasting theme for his civilian identity, Barry Allen.

Every Character Has Their Own Music

The concept of music representing specific characters came from the German opera composer, Richard Wagner. The concept, known as leitmotif, assigned each character, setting, object, and emotion different themes that are heard throughout his operas. These leitmotifs would be distinguished by the instruments performing, the tempo (speed), and the themes themselves. In this way, the audience can think of certain characters or places just by listening to the music—even if they aren’t present on stage.


Just seeing this picture probably makes you think of ‘The Imperial March’.

Leitmotif has become a huge part of TV and film scoring today. One of the most well-known examples in popular culture is John Williams’ Star Wars score. When you hear John Williams’ “The Imperial March”, it’s impossible not to think of Darth Vader. And this is exactly why leitmotif is a crucial element in the way a TV show comes together.

What Does The Flash Sound Like?


The Flash, CW
The Flash

During the final credits, you hear a truncated version of the main theme for The Flash and different snippets also appear in each episode. The theme contains two parts: heroic chords in the brass, and a series of fast, constant notes in the strings. As a superhero whose powers revolve around speed, it makes sense his musical theme would move at a quick pace. It sounds like a constant sixteenth-note theme is passed around the string section, creating an endless sense of movement. What are sixteenth-notes? While it depends on the original tempo, they are notes that are commonly associated with fast sections of music, making them particularly fitting for The Flash.


Sixteenth Notes
An example of four sixteenth-notes connected together.

The strings establish a rapid-pace feel with their sixteenth-notes, but Neely also wants to show that not only is the Flash fast, but he’s also strong. He creates this excitement and power through the brass section as they play full-sounding chords on top of the running string line. By combining both sections, the music provides an aural image of the Scarlet Speedster. You can hear these elements in full force on track one, “The Fastest Man Alive / Always Late,” from the Season 1 soundtrack.

Barry Allen’s Personal Sound


Barry Allen, forensics, forensic scientist
Barry Allen working as a forensic scientist.

Every good superhero has a civilian identity, which is where Barry Allen enters the picture. When the Flash isn’t fighting crime, Barry Allen works as a forensic scientist in a crime lab. Barry actually first appeared on a season 2 episode of Arrow, “The Scientist.” Before he was struck by lightning and received his super speed, Barry traveled to Starling City to research metahumans. While he ended up helping Team Arrow, he was in Starling City to research who killed his mother.

While many viewers were already aware of who Barry Allen would become, the seeds of the superhero theme are a part of his civilian identity. Track 10 of the Season 2 soundtrack, “The Scientist,” displays one of the many variations of Barry’s civilian theme.

The beginning of the track features small, repeated groups of sixteenth-notes in the strings, separated by brief rests. Since Barry Allen has not yet become the Flash, it makes sense that these sixteenth-notes remain disconnected and separate from his alter ego. Here, Neely cleverly sets the stage for the hero he will become.

The sixteenth-note bursts transition into a calm, beautiful theme played on the piano, accompanied by sustained strings. While the brass signifies power and strength in The Flash theme, the soft strings represent peace. The oboe represents Barry’s fun, quirky personality as the music changes between the piano and oboe. Variations on this musical idea are often heard when Barry Allen is present. The music represents a calm, positive forensic scientist who brings humor to difficult situations.

When Hope Comes to Central City


the flash season 1 finale buildings crumble under blue cloud
The wormhole that engulfs Central City at the end of Season 1.

Hope is a central theme in the Flash’s story. The Flash brings hope to Central City, and Barry brings hope to his friends and family. Occasionally, the characters need to find this same trait within themselves to continue fighting the good fight. For the Flash, hope is represented by a wordless choir.

The chorus is heard in the first notes of the Season 1 soundtrack, “The Fastest Man Alive.” This music immediately transitions into the superhero theme, which represents the hope that Flash will bring to Central City.

Climactic moments throughout the series are also met with a chorus. You hear this when Barry closes the wormhole at the end of Season 1, as well as when Iris and Barry discuss what decisions to make at the end of Season 2. The chorus also accompanies sentimental moments between Barry and his father. The music shows the hope that Henry Allen has in his son.

These are just a few musical ideas that represent the Flash. The Arrowverse is full of great characters and musical moments, so when these shows are in the hands of a master composer like Neely, the characters become more real and alive to the audience.

Shoot to Thrill: Speedlight Flash Techniques for Photographers

Shoot to Thrill: Speedlight Flash Techniques for Photographers


For decades, professional photographers have been using large, expensive studio lighting setups for their shoots. While powerful and effective, they have certain limitations. A new generation of photographers has embraced speedlights, battery powered flashes that can mount on your camera or be triggered remotely. After years of using studio lights, Michael Mowbray switched over to speedlights. He started gradually but soon realized he could shoot nearly everything with speedlights. Specializing in wedding and senior portraits, Mowbray found freedom and renewed creativity with these lights. As he states in the introduction, he no longer chases light, he creates it.While Mowbray’s main focus is the power and flexibility of speedlights, he also provides great tips for composition and location scouting. Also necessary is the ability to improvise on the spot if your planned location doesn’t work out, like his rained out plans for an outdoor bridal shoot. While creative use of speedlights gives a lot of control over the image created, there are some instances where digital postproduction adds something extra that really makes the photo pop. Mowbray gives a number of examples where editing helped make the final image exactly what he and the client were looking for.

Flash Mob Makes Merry on the New York City Subway

Norman Vincent Peale was onto something when he said: “Christmas waves a magic wand over this world and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.”

Well, here is a video that embodies that very sentiment. A group of sweet people (myself included) made merry magic on the MTA subway system this Christmas.

Goes to show that you can do the craziest stuff in New York, and no will bat an eye. In fact, they will join you.

Start your day (and New Year) off right. Smile next time someone offers you baked ham while on your commute to work.
