BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) -- Harry Lampert, who created the DC Comics superhero The Flash, died Saturday. He was 88.

Lampert had been suffering from cancer and died at Boca Raton Community Hospital, his family said.
...
Six years later, he created the DC comic book "Flash Comics #1," with collaboration from with writer Gardner Fox. The comic debuted a college student who discovered he had blinding speed after an accident in a chemical lab, and used his newfound talent to fight crime.

"He based it on the character in mythology (Hermes) ... the wings on his feet," said daughter Karen Lampert. "He had no idea how big it would be."
