The Flash: Wrath of the Weather Wizard
On a hot summer day, the doors of Iron Heights Penitentiary open, and the Weather Wizard walks out a free man. After years in prison, the super-villain takes a deep breath and looks to the heavens. Suddenly, a giant thundercloud erupts on the horizon! Across town, the Flash streaks toward the storm and spots an F5 tornado threatening downtown Central City! The Fastest Man Alive must save the city's residents and identify the cause of the deadly twister. Until he does, the Weather Wizard will remain under a cloud of suspicion.

The Flash: Trickster's Bubble Trouble
Axel Walker, the crazy Trickster, likes toys and gimmicks. And this time he’s making mischief using things no one can see. Whether it’s oxygen, air pressure, or invisible gas, the Trickster is bubbling over with evil schemes. Only the Flash can outwit the nefarious knave. But soon, Walker traps Flash within a special bubble, a gigantic glass sphere free of friction. Without friction enabling him to move, the Flash’s super-speed doesn’t get him anywhere. And the oxygen inside the bubble is quickly running out!

The Flash: Shell Shocker
Barry Allen has his hands full. While deactivating an explosive for the bomb squad, the police scientist receives a call, tipping him off about a robbery across town. Luckily, Barry is secretly the Fastest Man Alive. . . the Flash! In an instant, he zooms out the door, stops the crime, and returns before one second on the time bomb has ticked away. A moment later, the Flash receives another tip, and then another, and another. Soon, the Scarlet Speedster suspects a link between the crimes, but even he'll be shocked when the slow-motion super-villain is finally revealed.

As the Scarlet Speedster races from one battle to the next, Grodd activates the second part of his plan, a device that will change all humans into obedient monkeys.

The Flash rushes from house to house, saving entire families and their pets. However, instead of being thankful, the rescued victims accuse the Scarlet Speedster of setting the fires in the first place. The Flash knows only one man could imitate his super-speed . . .

Unfortunately, only one man is capable of such a task . . . his archenemy, Captain Cold. The Scarlet Speedster cuts a deal with this frosty felon, and they're off to save the day.
