Chronicles of Cisco


S.T.A.R. Labs once created a particle accelerator, under Harrison Wells (in disguise), that malfunctioned and severely injured and or killed many people. Several others were also mutated and became meta-humans. Since then, S.T.A.R. Labs has been disgraced and categorized as a class four hazard location. They've not been able to rebuild to their former glory, so currently it acts as a base of operations for Team Flash. It was also a former meta-human prison, the pipeline beneath the building was used in place of cells for dangerous supervillains.


  • Mercury Labs, in the Flash comics, is often depicted as a rival laboratory to S.T.A.R Labs.
