4. The '90s Flash TV series / Earth-90 Flash

Worn by: John Wesley Shipp

John Wesley Shipp made The Flash a household name in the '90s through his portrayal of the character on CBS' The Flash TV series. Having a superhero of this caliber on TV was a huge deal at this time, especially after the success of Batman in 1989, and thus every effort was made to ensure that it looked like a cinematic production.

The suit that Shipp ended up wearing pulled it off. Not only was it the best live-action suit The Flash had ever worn at the time, it looked like it had been ripped from the pages of a classic comic book. It also would have looked right at home on the big screen if there had been a Flash movie in the '80s or '90s and, with its musicular padding and velvet-like finish, Shipp looked absolutely amazing in it. The red also popped nicely, especially with the huge lightning bolt symbol on the chest.

A slightly updated version was used when the actor reprised the role in the Arrowverse's Elseworlds and Crisis On Infinite Earths crossovers. It was a darker shade of red and the muscles weren't as brushed up, making it look a tad more believable on modern television. Regardless, Shipp rocked it just as well as the original and it looked so good, it left us long for a movie or series just so we could see him in it again.

For a whole generation, John Wesley Shipp was the definitive Flash, and he has worn that honor well.
