How fast does Barry Allen run? A new trailer for “The Flash” has the answer.

It turns out that a police radar gun clocks the “fastest man alive” as going at 760 miles per hour. That’s very fast. Barry (Grant Gustin) would even be deserving of a hefty speeding ticket were it not for the fact that no police car, helicopter or even airplane would be able to catch up to him. The poor cop who clocks the Flash would have done better to stop the car doing 84.

For an extra bonus, check out the answers that cop is using for his crossword puzzle. In addition to “The Flash”-specific words like “Allen” and “dad,” there’s “Grodd,” a DC-comics character that will very likely show up on the show at some point.

“The Flash” premieres Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
