Uncommon usage, technical jargon, verb, meaning 'to erase'.

Comes from 'eeproms' (Electrically Eraseable Programmable Read Only Memory) units in days of yore which were 'flashed' so they could be written on again. Typically, a computer geek would understand this usage.
PC Onwer: "So, should I through my broken computer in the trash?"

Technician: "Make sure you flash the drive first, for security reasons."

PC Onwer: "WTF?"

Tech: "Uhh...erase all the information."

An Oklahoman who plays guitar so fast, that it can only be likened to a Verdi opera: 3 hours of music, some of beautiful and ennobling themes, at times piquant and subtle, other times dramatic and inspiring. Take those three hours of music, those thousands of musical notes, and compress them into 4 measures of incomprehensible speed, delivered with earth-shaking finesse and a raucous disregard for any physiological limit to human auditory perception. A person that plays guitar so fast that your face will melt.
The last girlfriend I had was dearer to me than anything that doesn't have steel strings and pickups. It's with a heavy heart that I must confess that she met a tragic demise. I sat her down to perform for her, as she had never heard me play. Being the flash that I am, within mere seconds of the furious and almost satanically fast deluge of musical notes, she burst into flames and was reduced to a smoldering pile of ash.

One of the hottest superheroes as well.
But this flash is a girl.
She throws some crazy ass lightning bolts.
She wears glasses with a crazy Jewish nose
as her disguise. Her partner is Fairy.
Together they are gonna turn Mal in a disgusting, hideous creature.

Flash IS badass.
