The Flash | English TV Serial Based on characters by DC Comics

We all love superheros right? One of the obious reasons is, they have the powers we secretly wish we could have and we can overpower those whom we think it is worth doing. And most importantly, they fight against evil.

In our day to day life we see that “truth doesn’t triumph always”. In most of the cases, the things are quite opposite to what they should be in ideal circumstances. When we see people doing wrong things get their work done via hook or crook, we feel sad. And when we see that the people who are doing right are getting wrong treatment, we start sinking in ourselves. And these superhero comics, TV Shows and movies take us to a world of fantasy; where the chosen ones have super powers and they are using them for the betterment of thte society.

These characters are popular throughout the world. If we talk about comics, there are two major names come infront of us Marvel Comics and DC Comics. Most of the (fictional) characters are projected on celluloid in form of Movies and TV Shows.
