DC Animated Universe
Flash (STAS)

Flash is a Metahuman

Metahuman was a term used by Static to describe himself, when he felt that "mutant" or "Bang Baby" were too derogatory.[1]

It would later be adapted by those in the government, such as General Hardcastle, to refer to all regular-born humans who had their genome mutated to give them extraordinary powers.[2]

It was used by the general public to refer to all those who had superpowers.[3]
