Synopsis for "Running from the Past"

Max Mercury saves Helen Claiborne from her abusive ex-husband, Jim. Max reveals that Helen is his daughter, and Bart Allen accidentally lets slip that he and Max are superheroes.

Max tells Helen that he was injured by Dr. Morlo in the 1940s and was nursed back to health by David and Laura Claiborne. Max fell in love with Laura and eventually had an affair with her. But when they were discovered by David, Max ran away and jumped forward in time. When he finally gathered up enough courage to visit Laura again, she was already dead. So, when Max was entrusted with Bart, he decided to take him to Manchester, Alabama so he could also keep an eye on Helen.

Helen initially has a hard time accepting the man she intended to date is really her father. But she manages to calm down enough to welcome Max and Bart into her life.
