A clone of Bartholomew 'Barry' Patrick Allen, nicknamed Pollux by scientists, was created to be a test subject for a super soldier. Because of his mistreatment by one of the two people in charge of the research facility that created him, Pollux escaped and learned who he was patterned after, only to later confront his creators and kill them. Ultimately he ended up taking a bullet that was meant for the Flash, sacrificing his life to save his original version in the process.
Behind the scenes
- Pollux was portrayed by John Wesley Shipp, the same actor as the Flash, as Pollux is a clone of him.
- This makes him similar to a character in the comics, Eobard Thawne aka Professor Zoom, a villainous speedster who went through plastic surgery to look like Barry Allen.
- He wore a blue costume patterned after that of the Flash, but with a chest insignia of a winged man holding a torch.
