[Hot Pursuit]
Real Name: Barry Allen
Occupation: Police Officer
Base of Operations: The Multiverse
First Appearance: Flash v.3 #6 (January 2011)

Hot Pursuit is a police officer from another universe. Instead of running, he rides a speed force-powered Cosmic Motorcycle, which he built with the aid of his nephew. The motorcycle transforms into a high-tech nightstick which can steal speed, store information, and project holograms.

His mission: protect the timestream from historical anomalies.

Hot pursuit was brought to the main reality in search of the source of a major time anomaly (the Flashpoint) linked to the speed force. As he investigated, he came to the belief that it was the presence of Bart Allen, but he learned — too late — that it was Professor Zoom.
