2019 Update: We brought the infographic current to include Joaquin Phoenix in The Joker, and filled in many appearances since Suicide Squad.

No superhero and supervillain duo embody the eternal struggle of good and evil better than Batman and the Joker.

Barry Allen is known to many as the Flash, the Fastest Man Alive, a founding member of the Justice League, and the first official superhero of a time known as the Silver Age of Comics. The title of the Flash has been held by more than just Barry; Jay Garrick, Wally West, and Bart Allen have all held the title of Scarlet Speedster throughout DC’s long history.
