The Flash star Grant Gustin dons John Wesley Shipp’s Scarlet Speedster costume in this cool artwork that pays homage to the hero’s 1990 series.
John Wesley Shipp made his debut as the father of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen in the first season of The CW’s The Flash, but the actor previously played the Fastest Man Alive in a CBS series that aired from September 1990 to May 1991. He reprised his role as The Flash for the Arrowverse crossover event Elseworlds opposite Grant Gustin and Stephen Amell.
While Elseworlds didn’t see Grant Gustin’s The Flash don John Wesley Shipp’s costume, as he was instead featured as Green Arrow for the crossover, this artwork from popular digital artist BossLogic imagines what Grant Gustin could look like in the 1990 version of The Flash costume. You can see it below.

Elseworlds may be in the past, but the upcoming sixth season of Grant Gustin’s The Flash will lead into The CW’s adaptation of the DC Comics storyline Crisis on Infinite Earths. The back-half of the Grant Gustin series will also deal with the fallout from the five-part crossover event. With Arrow coming to an end this fall after concluding its eight-episode final season, Grant Gustin’s The Flash will become The CW’s main DC Comics drama and Barry Allen will seemingly lead the other Arrowverse superheroes forward.
Crisis On Infinite Earths will span two quarters and consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The Arrowverse crossover will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January.
The series stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man
The Flash season six premieres on October 8, 2019. Stay tuned for the latest news on the Grant Gustin series!
