Hermes or Hermes

Hermes or Hermes in the Greek mythology was the son of Zeus and the nymph Maia and is one of the most famous deities of antiquity.He was born in a cave on Mount Cillene, in Arcadia (hence his famous name Cillenio).

Over time Hermes became the protector of travelers, merchants and commerce (as the traders had to travel) honest and dishonest and hence his famadi protector of thieves. Since the merchants have to talk a lot, hence Hermeshe was also called the god of eloquence and messenger of the gods. Since he was a god who had to travel a lot to accomplish his duties, that's it he also becomes the protector of athletes.

But his tasks did not end here, the night in fact when men and gods did not need his services, he also became the god who escorted the shadows of the dead to the new home (hence the appellation of Psychopomp).

So many were the deeds performed by Hermes that we find a little in all the myths: he helped Perseus to kill Medusa (see Myth of Perseus); helped Io free himself from Argos (see Myth of Io); he interceded with Hades to free Persephone (see Myth of Demeter) and many others.

Among his creations we remember the lira which was created for Apollo (who in turn gave it to Orpheus - see Myth of Orpheus and Euridice) by emptying the shell of a turtle and applying in the hollow part of the well-stretched ox guts. He received as a gift from Apollo the famous golden virgin (il caduceus) which later became in the hands of Hermes the shame of eloquence.

Hermes received the famous gift from Zeus winged cap (the petasus) e a pair of shoes also equipped with wings (the cassocks) so that he could carry out Zeus's orders more quickly.

As Zeus's messenger he was also tasked with bringing dreams to men as it was believed that they were sent by Zeus.

Despite the great work, Hermes also found time to love: from Aphrodite he had Hermaphrodite, he loved Penelope before she became the wife of Ulysses and from her he had the god Bread and many others.

In honor of Hermes, the said feasts were celebrated Hermes.

There Latin mythologyHermes is identified with Mercury, divinity of commerce and secondarily protector of travelers, god of health and happiness.

Hermes or Mercury - God of Greek and Latin mythology



This is how Luciano makes Mercury speak:

"Could there be in heaven, oh mother, a more unfortunate god than I? In fact, in the morning, as soon as I get up, I have to sweep the dining room and make the beds when everything is in good order, I have to stay close to Jupiter, to carry up and down his embassies running back and forth like a postman and as soon as he got back up, still dusty, serve ambrosia And before that boy (Ganymede) came up here as a cupbearer, I also poured the nectar.

But the worst thing that, of all, happens to me alone, is that not even at night I can rest, but I must accompany the souls down to Pluto, lead the dead and assist in the judgment. So the jobs of the day are not enough for me, being in gyms, being an auctioneer in parliaments and teaching the art of speech: I also have to bend over backwards with this other business of the dead.

The children of Leda (Castor and Pollux), one day for each, are in heaven and in Hades for me instead it is necessary that I do both things every day while the children of Alcmena and Semele (Heracles and Dionysus) , born of miserable little girls, they have a good time without thoughts, I child of Atlantis Maia must be their servant.


Behold, as soon as I returned from Sidon, to the daughter of Cadmus, where Jupiter sent me to see what the girl was doing, he did not even let me take a breath, which sent me back to Argos to see Danae and 'beyond' , he tells me, 'go to Boeotia and take a look at Antiope'. In short, I can't stand it anymore: if it were possible, I would love to be sold, as is the case with slaves on earth. "


Plautus makes him speak in the Amphitryon:

"You want me to make you good money when you buy and sell your goods and that in all circumstances I help you you want all your business, all your operations to be successful, both at home and abroad, and that good and large profits are continually increasing your trades, those already started and those you will start. "

In Greek mythology Mercury was Hermes, son of Jupiter and the nymph Maya, messenger of the Gods, protector of travels and travelers, of communication, deception, thieves, swindlers, liars, substances, divination, bearer of dreams and the conductor of the souls of the dead in the underworld.

In the Homeric hymn to Demeter, Hermes brings the Kore Persephone back safe and sound from the Goddess her mother. He was also known for inspiring dreams to sleeping mortals.

Hermes or Hermes was also the God of borders, of shepherds and herdsmen, of orators and poets, of literature, of athletics, of weights and measures, of commerce and of the cunning characteristic of thieves and liars.

The Homeric hymn to Hermes invokes him as: "resourceful, kindly shrewd, marauder, herd guide, dream bringer, night watcher, gate thief, who hastened to show his exploits among the immortal goddesses.".

Hermes also acted as interpreter, messenger of the Gods to men, a task he shared with the Goddess Iris. From Hermes comes the word hermeneutics, the art of interpreting hidden meanings.

It was believed that Hermes, in addition to the syringe and the lyre, had also invented many sports competitions and the practice of boxing: for this he was considered the protector of athletes.

For the ancient Greeks in Hermes the spirit of passage and crossing was embodied, believing that it manifested itself in any:
- exchange (commercial and otherwise),
- transfer,
- violation (such as theft),
- overshooting (for example of borders),
- change,
- transit (merchants),
- as a passage from a place (travelers),
- or from one state to another (social status, state office)
- including the passage from life to death (Mercury psychopomp).

According to the hymn to Hermes, his father was Zeus and his mother was Maia, the most beautiful of the Pleiades, daughters of Atlas, who had taken refuge in a cave on Mount Cillene. It was born in a cave on the sides of Mount Cillene, the highest peak in the Peloponnese, for which it also had the nickname of Cillenio.

His symbols were the rooster and the tortoise but he was also clearly recognizable by his leather purse, his sandals and winged hat, the petasus, and the messenger cane, the kerykeion.

Little Hermes was a very precocious child: still a baby, he took off his swaddling clothes by himself and, coming out of the cave, he met a turtle which he took off the shell and on the hollow part stretched seven strings, thus making a zither with a very sweet sound night he escaped from Maia and went to Thessaly to steal the cattle of his elder brother Apollo, keeper of the herds of the Gods, as many as fifty head of cattle.

He cunningly dragged them by the tail, making them walk backwards so that the traces of the hooves would not betray him. Then, when he reached Elide, he hid them in a very deep underground cave. Then he went back to the cave, put the swaddling back on, pretending to sleep in the crib. Apollo, however, found out but Maia defended him because he had spent the whole night with her.

But Zeus said that Hermes had actually stolen the herd and had to return it. While arguing with Apollo, Hermes began to play his lyre which Apollo so pleased that, in exchange for it, he agreed that Hermes keep the stolen herd.

On the contrary, he even gave him a magic rod, which one day Hermes threw between two snakes fighting each other. Immediately they became snakes in love intertwined with the rod and the God made it his caduceus.

Because he was swift as the wind, Zeus made him the messenger of the Gods and charged him with many missions, such as freeing Ares prisoner of Oto and Ephialtes. It was he who brought Hera, Athena and Aphrodite to Paris to award the apple to the most beautiful.

It was Hermes who accompanied Priam across the Greek lines when he went to Achilles to implore the return of Hector's body.

For her father Zeus, when the nymph Io, one of Zeus's mistresses, was captured by Hera and guarded by the hundred-eyed giant Argos, he went to save her, putting the giant to sleep and beheading him.

In front of the lovers Aphrodite and Ares, trapped by Hephaestus, he said that he would not mind being in Ares' place just to be in Aphrodite's arms. At which Aphrodite, appreciating the compliment, granted herself to him by conceiving the Hermaphrodite.

He was also the God of dreams and made mortals fall asleep by touching them with the magic rod. It also accompanied the shadows of the dead in the Erebus and was therefore called Psychopompós, which in Greek means "conductor of souls".

He also had the gift of eloquence, which combined with the lack of scruples, made him consider the God of orators, commerce, trade and earnings, of cheaters and thieves.

Temples dedicated to Hermes were widespread throughout Greece, but the most important center was Phenaeus in Arcadia where the celebrations in his honor called "Hermoea" were held.

"Hear me, Hermes, messenger of Zeus, son of Maia with an indomitable heart.

Hermes iconography

In the most ancient times he was imagined as an older, bearded God with a phallus of considerable size but, in the sixth century BC. his figure was reworked and transformed into that of an athletic-looking young man. The statues of Hermes portrayed with his new appearance were widely placed in stadiums and gymnasiums throughout Greece.

He usually wore a wide-brimmed traveler's hat or the petasus, the characteristic winged hat.

He wore a pair of winged sandals, the Talari and wore the messenger stick typical of oriental culture - or the Caduceus around which two snakes are intertwined, or the "Kerykeion", above which there is a symbol similar to that to that used in astrology for the sign of taurus.

He wore simple clothes, like a traveler, worker or shepherd. Often it was represented with its typical symbols, the bag, the rooster or the turtle.

Like "Hermes Logios", a symbol of divine eloquence, he generally held one arm raised as an orator.
He also possessed a magical cloak that made him invisible.

The lineage of Hermes

  • Pan - Pan, the satyr-looking god of nature, shepherds, and flocks, was considered the son of Hermes and the nymph Driope. In the Homeric Hymn to Pan, after giving birth to him, Pan's mother ran away from the newborn, frightened by his appearance.
  • Hermaphrodite - Hermaphroditus was the son of Hermes and Aphrodite. He was transformed into a hermaphrodite when the Gods literally conceded to him and the nymph Salmace never to separate.
  • Priapus - The god Priapus was the son of Hermes and Aphrodite. The memory of Hermes' origin as a phallic deity is perpetuated through the figure of Priapus. According to different sources, Priapus was instead the son not of Hermes but of Dionysus.
  • Eros - According to some sources, the god of love Eros, son of Aphrodite, was conceived with Hermes, although the paternity has also been attributed to other gods such as Ares and Hephaestus. Hesiod's Theogony states that Eros was born out of nothing and his coming into the world preceded the Gods. In Roman mythology Eros took the name of Cupid.

(Author unknown)
"The God with other gods and goddesses lived on Olympus and with the sound of the lyre delighted their cohabitants, but every now and then he carried out the task of messenger. In fact he gave the orders of the gods to men and women, applied sandals to his shoes and wings and appeared to men. Once the god Mercury appeared to the pious Aeneas and admonished him, as the poet Virgil tells in his famous work: he founds a new Ilio on the coasts of Italy! Leave the queen and her kingdom and obey fate!"

In Roman mythology the correspondent of Hermes was Mercury who, although he was a God of Etruscan derivation, possessed many characteristics similar to him, such as being the God of commerce.

"This Battista Mattei, dying, left fat assets to his sons Bernardino and Giulio, who, having come in contrast to each other, solicited the arbitration of Giulio Albertoni and Girolamo Serlupi. The award, in acts by Bernardo Mocaro, is dated 7 December 1502. Ulisse Aldovrandi p. 152 describes "a naked Mercury seated on a throne, holding a naked girl in his arms. found in Trastevere in the house of Messer Alessandro Mattei ». And since also the Kaibel inscriptions 971, 997 etc.they say "repertae in li ortis Mattheis transiberim" I believe that all or part of the monuments described are really the result of excavations carried out near the 1st mile of via Portuense".
(Rodolfo Lanciani)

Mercury, in Latin Mercurius, was the God of eloquence, commerce and thieves, in Greek and Roman mythology. His wand, the Caduceus, became a symbol of medicine. Being the messenger of the Gods, he was often depicted with wings on his feet.

In Roman mythology he represented not only thieves for his speed but he was also the God of trade, profit, cunning, business and commerce, his Latin name probably derived from the term merx or mercator, which means merchant.

Mercury was considered messenger of the Gods, giver of prosperity and wealth, God guides souls in Avernus and tutelary deity of the roads.

The herm, the pillar for roads and borders, often surmounted by a bust or symbol, derives from Hermes, which tells how much his image was used for anything that highlighted borders or directions, or simply as an apotropaic symbol.

It was no coincidence that it protected travelers by land.
In Rome, a temple dedicated to him was erected in the Circus Maximus on the Aventine hill, in 495 BC.


Hyperphallic Hermes - fresco of Pompeii. Lucky figure that blends the attributes of two divinities of abundance: Priapus (recognizable by the huge erect phallus), god of fecundity, and Mercury, god of commerce, recognizable by the caduceus. Fresco from Pompeii 89 AD Naples, Museo Archeol. Nat.

Many inventions were attributed to Mercury for his quick wits, such as those of music, astronomy, weights and measures. Because he was always traveling on his missions, he was considered the protector of travelers and road safety.

Therefore, in the most dangerous points, or where a road forked, a herm was raised in his honor, that is, his bust placed on a pedestal. Sometimes however replaced with Priapus.
The Romans used to say "Hermes has entered"when a sudden silence fell in a meeting.

Caduceus - Rod surmounted by two wings and with two coiled snakes. For the Romans it was the symbol of the herald of peace, called caduceator. Since then, with the addition of two small wings spread out to signify speed, the caduceus became an attribute and symbol not only of peace but also of commerce, which thrives in it. In ancient Rome, Mercury was sometimes represented with animals sacred to him next to him: the ram, the pig, as well as the rooster.

  • Acacesio - from the name of the balio Acasio, son of Lycaon.
  • Vinegar - which does no harm.
  • Argifonte - for killing Argos.
  • Arpedophore - for tricking Argo with the harp.
  • Caducifer - Caduceus bearer.
  • Trifonius - who makes people accept different customs.
  • Psychopomp - companion of souls to Hades.



Templum Mercurii in Aventino

On May 15, 495 BC. a temple on the Aventinus hill was consecrated to Mercurius.
"it was a Temple at the foot of the Aventine dedicated to Mercury restored by Marcus Aurelius"
(Ridolfino Venuti Cortonese 1763)

The stone finds in the area south-east of S. Eufemia also demonstrate the existence, as many scholars claim, of a sacred area dedicated to Mercury.

His feast on that date was called Mercuralia.


Greek Mythology and Superheroes - Flash, the scarlet Hermes

Ezra Miller is Flash - Painted by Erminia A. Giordano for CineHunters. Ezra Miller's Barry Allen is a shy boy, still clumsy and very nice, but he hides behind his whimsical ways of making great fears and insecurities, derived from his loneliness.

  • Gods and Heroes: between myth and Justice League

In ancient times Greece there were heroes. Maybe they didn't have the prefix "super"But they were really heroes, capable of living adventures and carrying out feats quite similar to those that today we would refer to as escapes from any comic book narrative. In the Hellenic regions, as early as the 6th century BC. there were what we, today, commonly define as "crossover", or the "tales" where heroes or gods met or clashed with each other. Heracles backed Theseus in Hades, for example, Orpheus took part in the expedition of Jason and the deities lined up in opposing "leagues" in the conflict that saw the Trojans and the Achaeans rival, suddenly appearing and thus changing the course of the "plot", as in the best and most exciting contemporary fantasy series. Superheroes, especially those belonging to the stable DC Comics, the first to appear on the comic strips as well as the first to speak on paper, supported by a script that, from the beginning, materializes in the form of a cloud full of words and meanings, are none other than the reinterpretations of the old heroes of mythology, and they even trace the way in which, thousands and thousands of years ago, those stories, those myths proper, were told. It seemed, in fact, that Greek mythology took place entirely in one narrative universe, cohesive and precise, albeit with some slight inconsistencies. DC itself has always chosen to set its stories in a well-known universe, until the end of the Sixties, when the universes known to readers from all over the globe will become many. In short, without going further, superheroes are nothing more than the exaltations of ancient heroes, from which they draw values ​​and powers, single and shared adventures.

  • Flash: "You can not stop me!
  • Superman: "Don't be so sure. I've run with you before, Barry. I also won some races. "
  • Flash: "Those were for charity, Clark! "

(Flash Rebirth - Barry runs away from Superman)

Superman it is probably the emblem of DC heroes. Strong like Heracles, invulnerable as an immortal god, Clark Kent possesses the ability to fly to the sun from which he draws his might. More thanOlympus, Kal-El is the son of heaven. He embodies the last testimony of a vanished world, and is an almost omnipotent being who realizes, in an infinite series of powers, the greatest dreams of glory of the imagination of each author. Wonder Woman he is, perhaps, the most relevant character of all to archaic mythology, both on an aesthetic and conceptual level. She is an Amazon, created by Zeus and Aphrodite, who grew up on the island of Queen Hippolyte. Wonder Woman is the symbol of the strong, authoritarian, shining and valiant woman, the icon of modern female heroism. Aquaman could be described as the oldest hero in the history of comics. He, king of all seas, already lived under the waves thousands and thousands of years ago and bore, always with pride, a trident tight in the hands with which reigned over the kingdom of the abyss ever since the day when his brothers, Zeus and Hades, decided to divide the three kingdoms of the world and he touched that of the vast oceans. Aquaman is the Poseidon of our day, the hero who personifies the figure of the Greek god and the ruler of Atlantis, the lost city, the latter another myth from which the comic drew its inspiration to retrace yet another story that has its roots in the past centuries . green Lantern he is a hero placed to guard the planet. He, astute like Odysseus and bold like Ajax, would protect the Earth with the same firmness as how Hector he would defend his beloved homeland until his death.

Flash is linked by a deep friendship with Green Lantern.

Batman is Cyborg they are two very different characters, but in an analysis dedicated to some passages of ancient mythology they represent nothing more than the limit of the human being, that same limit that can be passed from self-denial, dedication, commitment, sweat, exhausting training and, above all, from the genius of man. Batman has dedicated his entire life to go "further", to impersonate a symbol of fear and hope although he did not possess any extraordinary gifts, but only for the desire for justice. Batman is the real hero, the one who does not need the valiant strength of Aeneas in order to break down the obstacle of wickedness. That's enough for Bruce Wayne himself, because he is the only one who has managed to overcome every limit to which man, given his own mortality and physical frailty, is unfortunately subject. Batman came close to the sun and, despite having wax wings, he managed not to fall, to persist high up, until he touched the celestial vault. Cyborg, for its part, is the product of ingenuity, progression, technological advancement, of wisdom. Prometheus, the giant in love with the human race, stole fire from the gods to give it to men, because, in his eyes, we were all deserving, unique. Man, starting from fire, has evolved more and more. It all began from that burning and blazing flame, from that imperishable blaze that represented, then as now, the ardor of discovery. With fire, man has progressed, he has become a genius of science which he himself constantly studied. Returning life to a deceased man, in the form of a Cyborg, is a science fiction dream that is reflected in the continuous, sinister search of man, who, since the dawn of time, has been trying todeceive death, to extend one's life, to save one's fellow men. Cyborg's character is the fantastic representation of human knowledge. And the aforementioned knowledge would not have become so great if a titan, many centuries ago, had not offered the human race such a profound and valid pledge.

"Flash Comics 1"

Looking at the first, historical Flash costume, dated 1940, we can't help but notice that the scarlet sprinter is a reinterpretation, in a modern and superheroic key of course, of the Winged Mercury. Flash has its origins in the speed of Hermes, the messenger of the gods. Carving out a leading role in the contemporary comic adventure, Flash, by virtue of its powers, bears in itself a tribute to the past, a continuous homage to the era of the great Greek myths and, at the same time, the character also turns an attention constant to the future, for which the red lightning it does nothing but represent the continuous journey, the race, the interminable journey that each of us, his readers, must make during his own life.

Flash, John Wesley Shipp, 1990 - Painted by Erminia A. Giordano for CineHunters. You can read our article on the classic “Flash” series by clicking here.

  • Flash - The winged mercury

“Faster than lightning in the sky, faster than light itself, faster than thought, Flash is the reincarnation of winged Mercury. Its speed is the dismay of the scientists, the joy of the oppressed and the enchantment of the crowds! " (Flash Comics 1- 1940)

Flash reveals, with every stroke, the past, the incident of Hermes, as well as the future, the unexplored future towards which he arrives with his rapid pace. Flash runs day after day, like all of us. In the society we live in, each of us runs, struggles, chasing dreams and hopes to reach a future that seems to unwind under our feet with immediate speed. Sometimes, in this grueling race, we, inexperienced runners, lose sight of the meaning of our journey, and end up not really understanding the why we run. Moving from one place to another, reaching a destination rather than another, the journey in the broad sense is only a superficial pretext. The true runner does not care about reaching the finish line, he is only interested in running, observing, knowing, living. The race hides the sense of the discovery of unknown places, of unknown realities, of extraordinary experiences that can be lived in the tortuous pilgrimage made as a life experience. The Flash race is configured as an analytical and introspective investigation of oneself. And so Flash runs to discover himself every time, to overcome his own limits. The authors who gave contour and liveliness to the scarlet sprinter wanted to make this tireless marathon runner embody man's inextinguishable desire to turn to boundless infinity, towards mastery of the mystery hidden away, towards conquest.

In an episode of the television series of the 90s, Barry Allen (John Wesley Shipp) observes a bronze statue that has the appearance of Mercury.

Flash has the world at his feet and is animated by a yearning for limitless freedom. From the pencil of Gardner Fox is Harry Lampert, in January 1940, he was born Jay Garrick, Flash, in the pages of "Flash Comics n ° 1”, The DC Comics book which took its name directly from its main character. In the same issue, other famous DC heroes also saw the light, heroes such as Hawkman, Hawkgirl (Shiera Sanders), Black Canary and Johnny Thunder. The first paper depiction of Flash sees the hero darting towards the horizon, leaving behind a long trail. A blond-haired woman observes in amazement the man pass in front of her with a brisk pace, just as the swift foot Achilles charged towards the enemy army. In recent times that first issue, jealously preserved by a collector for almost seventy years, has been valued for a figure that is around 450 thousand dollars, testifying to the undisputed value and glorious future that the character who, in those pages, he saw the light for the first time.

Jay Garrick wears a gray helmet on his head, adorned on the sides by two gold-colored wings, is dressed in a red costume that reveals a large yellow shape designed to simulate the dart of a lightning bolt, wears a pair of jeans and wears two red boots , also surrounded by golden wings. The wings recall the symbolism of the Greek god Hermes. Flash runs on asphalt ribbons with a rapid and impalpable step, which gives the feeling that the hero is not touching the ground properly but rising from it, just as Mercury did when he moved his steps on the white clouds that overlooked the paths of the 'Olympus.

“We will do it and we will do it quickly. After all, that's how I'm used to doing things. " (Jay Garrick - Flash)

Barry Allen's first appearance

The most famous and beloved incarnation of Flash, Barry Allen, arrived in 1956 after the disaster of the Second World War which among other things also caused comics to fall into disrepair and into general oblivion. Jay Garrick was thus sacrificed, succumbed to oblivion and disappeared from the newsstands, leaving a melancholy memory as he passed. Barry Allen is a Central City forensics cop. One night, during a thunderstorm, Barry is struck by lightning while, late in the evening, he was working in his laboratory. Lightning struck him suddenly, bursting through a large window adjacent to the researcher's work table, who was hit by a series of electrically charged chemicals. When he awoke, he went out into the street and, noticing a taxi in the distance, he began to run to catch up with him. He realized, shortly afterwards and with surprise, that he had overtaken the car by several meters. He realized at that moment that he had inherited an extraordinary power that he decided to put at the service of humanity. Thus he assumed the identity of Flash, wearing a scarlet mask and costume, decorated with gold-colored lightning bolts. On the chest, imprinted a yellow lightning bolt on of in a white circle, representing the emblem of the lightning bolt through a full moon high in the firmament.

“You are quick, Quicksilver, I grant you! Maybe in your universe you are the fastest man there is! But even the fastest car in the world looks like a snail to a jet! " (Flash - Marvel versus DC)

When Barry Allen broke into the world of comics on "Showcase 4"Immediately managed to magnetize the attention of thousands of readers, from that moment irremediably kidnapped by the exploits of the" Scarlet Sprinter ". The character perfectly embodied the spirit of his time. For America, in fact, that was a period of great prosperity and radical innovations on all fronts. DC Comics and a group of designers and writers, such as Robert Kanigher, Julius Schwartz, John Broome and Carmine Infantino, created a titanic publishing enterprise, betting everything they had on creating an overwhelming tomorrow. Barry Allen, understood almost unanimously as the first hero of the Silver Age, revived DC Comics, the fate of entire comics and everything related to them. On the benevolent scarlet trail of Flash a whole series of other comic brands found, in fact, new vigor and resumed being published successfully. Flash took his "brothers" by the hand and dragged them towards a bright future. Marvel Comics also arose on a solid and lasting foundation built by The Flash.

Barry is struck by lightning.

For many years, the comic book legend of Flash grew without limits, becoming the best-selling newspaper in America, recording record sales of around 900,000 copies. In addition to all this, to further increase the value of the character, the DC entrusted Flash with the task of introducing the "multiverse" in "Flash of the two worlds”, One of the most prestigious comic books in history. In this comic, Barry Allen discovered, through a journey into a parallel dimension, the existence of a second Earth, on which a now elderly Jay Garrick took his heroic steps. It was the birth and canonization of two Flashes, the old and the new, the master and the great apprentice. Flash always continued to be central in the narrative universe of the US publishing house, making the heroic sacrifice in the final pages of the legendary crossover "Crisis on infinite lands" or distorting, again, in 2011 the narrative arc with the miniseries Flashpoint, which will give life to the New 52.

In over 75 years of publishing history, Flash has had two other incarnations: Wally West, Iris's fiery red-haired grandson, and Bart Allen.

Flash is characterized by an optimistic, sunny, sometimes ironic and deeply emotional personality. He is, in some ways, in contrast with the dark Batman, resembling, instead, Superman, or a superhero bringer of hope. Barry is a benevolent and inspirational figure not only for ordinary people but also for other superheroes, so much so that once Bruce Wayne said of him: "Barry is the kind of man I would have hoped to become had my parents not been murdered”.

Although in recent years Barry Allen has been portrayed on television and in film as a young boy, in comics he is actually a grown man.. He is also very sharp, he is not an inexperienced superhero who needs a team to back him up, as shown in the television series, and he is not even an eccentric joker, as shown in the film adaptation of the Justice League or in the cartoon.. Flash is a dreamy, cheerful but also serious superhero, and he faces the dramas of life with an incurable optimism, a characteristic that, once grasped, is able to instill hope in the reader.

  • Powers: a gift or a curse?

"My name is Barry Allen, I am the fastest man in the world. For years I have lived without my human form, consumed by the friction of a crazy journey at the speed of light, stretched in space and time in the pursuit of an invisible vector and unstoppable. I could hold the absolute in the palm of my hand, feel eternity in the blink of my eyelashes. I knew then that I had become something more. Something different than a man who runs faster than others. I was the Force of Speed. " (Barry Allen - Flash)

The power, acquired on the night of the accident and derived from the force of speed manifested in the shape of a thunderbolt, perhaps thrown by Zeus himself, turned Barry into a demigod lying among men. The ability to run at hyper speed places the superhero in the middle, between earthly humanity and the glory of heaven. Barry can exceed the speed of light, travel through the ages, think and ponder so quickly that he can calculate and anticipate any move of a rival. Flash possesses lightning-fast reflexes and considerable physical strength and stamina, although it requires consuming large amounts of food to sustain itself. Its accelerated metabolism allows it to heal quickly from wounds. Barry can also make the molecules in his body vibrate and pass through matter unscathed.

Although he is considered a radiant hero, Flash can also be understood as a dramatic character. He perceives external reality with great inertia. In the passage “The Ballad of Barry Allen”By Jim's Big Ego, Flash is described as a character victim of his own power. Speed ​​for Flash turns out to be, according to this interpretation, a curse that envelops the hero.

In fact, even according to myself, a similar reinterpretation of the character takes on a fascinating aspect. Time drags Flash constantly, and precisely because he is so fast, he struggles to control the exasperating passing of the seconds. Speed ​​turns into an unstoppable and intolerable need. Flash can never really stop, and no one can really see it move. Consequently no one can be able to understand his feelings. Flash therefore remains prey to loneliness. Under his eyes the daily reality, the deeds and movements of his fellow men, flow with extreme slowness. There are those who would say that life goes too fast, but to Flash life itself seems to progress in a staid way. The time calculated by the clocks is different from that calculated by his mind which ends up falling into an incessant and inexorable whirlpool. His thoughts and perceptions follow one another more rapidly than conventional time as perceived by ordinary men, plunging the hero into a state of abandonment and misunderstanding. Flash thus remains in a stasis between actual time and subjective time, with the latter taking over its complete existence. He, a man, would thus live with the gift of a god who tortures his mortal spirit with a power destined for an immortal soul like that of Hermes.

  • Running as a metaphor for life

Life does not give us meaning, we are the ones who give meaning to life”. (Flash)

Flash's race towards infinity is the representation of courage, of that audacity necessary to face an opponent who appears on the horizon. But the race is, at the same time, the expression of a longing for life. In running, the mind tends to clear up and let thought flow freely. In his harmonious progress, Flash's breathing becomes feeble, the wind brushes his face and the air seems to lift him from the ground that he laps with his feet pushing him. Electricity flows through his veins like a burning fire that travels through each of his nerve endings. Flash runs to understand the world, the meaning of existence to which we give a value and a purpose. Running, Flash rediscovers, daily, the wonders of the life arc, and he fights for them. And it is for this reason that in the race it also materializes escape from the darkness. Flash can run, but it cannot escape from any problem, from any fatality. The powers make the hero special, but the same powers do not make him, after all, different from any other man. Death for Flash is represented by the black sprinter, a skeletal figure who embodies the figure of the sad reaper and who chases the runner to steal his life. This personification is the novelization of an allegory. The Flash Black chases the scarlet sprinter to stop him and thus put an end to his existence. The death chasing the superhero with a pressing step is the figurative expression of time passing by, and makes the superhero aware of his own mortality. Flash may have the powers of a Greek god, but he will always, despite everything, a man subject to death. The Black Flash exacerbates this awareness in the heart and soul of the hero, the knowledge of the end that can come unexpectedly. Flash, which dominates the passing of seconds with its speed, understands how the single moments, the moments themselves, often underestimated for their own transience, can acquire a profound value so as to become "infinite". Flash, in his bucks, deduces when it is necessary to run away, get away from the evils that could cause destruction, and stop in one's home, to live serenely the affection of loved ones. It is in this way that the hero gives and transmits value to family, love and friendship, fleeing from darkness to return and remain in the light. The race, for Flash, it is a metaphor for life itself, made up of sacrifices, of missions to be fulfilled, of dangers to be driven away, of indissoluble affections to be protected, of returns.

Wally West reached by death, represented as the Black Flash.

Barry Allen's great love is Iris West, the one who represents the final goal of one's race. Iris met Barry (who first appeared in Showcase issue 4 in 1956) while the latter was investigating a murder case. Barry was immediately attracted to the ways of the journalist, curious, nice and easy to talk about, while Iris was struck by the honesty and firmness of the man. After a long engagement, one evening Barry proposed to Iris that they marry him, during a ride on the Ferris wheel at the Central City amusement park.. In Flash n. 165 (November 1966) Iris married Barry, discovering that very night that her husband was in fact the guardian of Central City. In the future it will be seen that Barry and Iris conceive two children, Don and Dawn Allen, "the tornado twins".

Iris like most of the women in the comics is represented as a beautiful, floating woman Red hair, with a candied face, and with only a hint of freckles, with graceful shapes. The figure of Iris in Barry's life is always dominant. She represents the motivation for Flash to move forward, a bit like Arwen and for Aragorn L'inspiration capable of heating the heart and revive the spirit of the ranger during the arduous battles. For Flash, Iris is the center of her universe, the stimulating factor of her life. Barry runs, resists and survives by repeating to himself: "when I return home she is waiting for me". Iris is the finish line, the final hug which establishes for Barry the landing to happiness. At the end of each mission, at the end of each race, the hero takes off his mask, go back to being a man, stop wandering in solitude and returns home, the place where he can finally give in to rest. The destination where, by stopping, Flash can fully enjoy the daily beauties of existence.

“Maybe it's not that bad to die. Not if you leave an heir, if you know someone will still fight for what you believed. " (Flash - Avengers / JLA)

Reading Flash you can tangibly fantasize about the possibility of being able to run faster than sound, always towards the horizon and the brighter future he is a positive thought, a light full of hope that lightens the darkness and that, of course, can only fascinate every reader with a dreamy inspiration. Flash is but the revisited personification of winged mercury, a dismay to scientists, a joy to the oppressed and a delight to the crowds.

DC Comics superheroes, with their tales of epic battles, of men capable of flying to the stars or lifting mountains, revisit the deeds of gods and heroes of Greek mythology, in which the tale served as an escape from reality. The myth possessed the ability to stimulate the imagination. The Greek tale bewitched and stole dreams and attention with the description of a young woman who was born from the foam of the sea, or with the narration of angry gods who defeated the titans with the thunderbolt, the trident or the helmet that made them invisible. They were deeds narrated by singers and focused on the exaltation of the imagination, one of the greatest gifts that man has ever received. Comics are sequential art that transforms what was told in words in ancient times into a pictorial palette, perhaps accompanied by the sound of the zither, and carried away by the wind that retained all its value.

Flash, the fastest, the quickest of heroes, is still today the personification of tomorrow, of a future that, however remote, was approaching and continues to approach with great strides.
