Speed dating and flash marriage
Manuel had no time to explain himself, though, as someone began banging down the door. Barry ducked out of sight to become the Flash, but was surprised when he emerged to see that Manuel had been caught by several clones of himself.
When they claimed that they had taken reporter and old flame Iris West hostage, Barry was forced to watch them take Manuel away.
Batman then formulated a plan, consisting of him being captured to rescue Superman while the others engaged Darkseid in a fight.
By the time Barry returned, however, his mother had been murdered, and his father had been placed under arrest, though he professed his innocence.
For years, he visited Henry in prison, promising to look over all of the evidence of his mother's murder case until he found a way to prove his father's innocence.
After years of coming back, and failing to find any proof, Henry broke down in tears and admitted that he had committed the crime.
Barry learned that Manuel had been working for the CIA and had officially died 16 months ago.
However, these clones who called themselves Mob Rule and appeared to be suffering from rapid cellular deterioration, had found they're original and hoped to use him to lengthen their short lives.
