The Last Dance

Synopsis

As Iris West-Allen is killed at a party, Barry is given a dose of angel dust by an unknown person and hallucinates that he beats Clive Yorkin to death. Barry recuperates in a hospital and then goes on a rampage when his Justice League comrades refuse to help him bring Iris back from the dead. Entire story may be a drug-induced hallucination in Flash's mind; part of the story certainly is.
