Mazdan
Real Name:
Search for 'Mazdan' on Amazon


Bio:
Though he makes only one appearance, he's significant to the extent that he forces the Flash (II) to discover that the time barrier can be broken by applying super-speed in a precise way. As such, he helps the Flash discover an application of his speed that differentiates him from the (original conception of) Flash (I), and ultimately will be applied to breaking normal physical barriers in various ways. It could be said that this adventure sets the stage for the Flash's ability to both transit to Earth 2 and to stop the Anti-Monitor--key events that would significantly affect the way DC told its stories.

Mazdan himself, though, was a fairly ordinary criminal who had little time in his lone 10-page story to make much of a name for himself. He's best remembered not for his persona, but for the part he played in that story. As a future criminal who had been sentenced to travel into the even farther future, his broken time-capsule represented a problem that Barry Allen, a policeman, had to find a way to fix with his particular gifts. He was, thus, the first of a new kind of criminal for a new kind of Flash.
