HIV Meets the Comic Book Universe: 10 Notable Moments

The Flash

No, the Flash is not HIV positive. But, that doesn't mean he can't be schooled on HIV by one of his very closest friends. When discussing his sex life with a gay friend, his friend brings up the idea that the Flash should use condoms, but the Flash thinks that using a condom every time you have sex is only for gay men.

The Flash also happened to be the star of one of DC Comics' PSAs (there was also a Green Lantern PSA), where he helps two gay men who are literally being chased, mob style, by a group of people who accuse them of spreading AIDS. The Flash comes in to drop some knowledge on them.
