History

Henry Allen was the husband of Nora Allen and father of Barry Allen and Malcolm Thawne. He was a doctor in Fallville, Iowa, for thirty years.
Henry's heart stopped when he and Nora were involved in a serious car accident. Although the motorist who was at fault, Jack Morgan, was able to revive him, Henry's astral form had left his physical body, and it was possessed by the Top. The villain posed as Henry for several weeks, with the ultimate goal of transferring his spirit to the body of Henry's superhero son. However, Barry feigned death, causing the Top to leave his father's body with no new host to go to, so that Henry's spirit could return to its rightful body.

Henry passed away shortly after his son perished in the first Crisis. He and Nora were buried next to Barry.
