The Flash: Ranking Every Main Character Worst To Best

Two seasons in, who is the show's MVP?

The CW

Since debuting back in 2014, The Flash has gone on to become one of the most beloved comic shows of all time. Over two seasons, the show's willingness to embrace its source material, its abundance of charm, and its ability to balance both the fun and danger of being a superhero have made it wholly appealing, its unabashed pride in what it is earning itself boatloads of fans and critical praise the world over.

One of the biggest keys to its success, though, has been the strength of its core cast; had they not clicked with viewers, the show simply wouldn't have held together, let alone be headed towards its third season. There's been an abundance of minor and major supporting characters that have turned up on the show that are equally memorable, but it's the main cast - from our titular hero to his friends, family, and one hell of an enemy - that have truly captivated fans and allowed them to invest in a world of time-traveling speedsters, telepathic gorillas, and bipedal monster sharks.

With season three stills months away, let's take a spoiler-filled look back at the primary characters we've come to know over the past two years in order to stack up which ones truly make the show and which ones stand out as weak links in comparison.
