Henry Allen was the husband of Nora Allen and father of Barry Allen and Malcolm Thawne. He was a doctor in Fallville, Iowa.
When Barry Allen was a child, Nora was murdered and Henry was convicted of the crime. This incident drove his son to become a policeman, in hope of finding the real killer.
Henry died in prison a year or two before his son became the Flash.
- The Flash: Rebirth series introduced a major retcon to the story of Henry Allen. See Henry Allen (Earth-One) for his history prior to this retcon.
