The Speed Force is an extradimensional energy field that acts as the source of power for those gifted with the ability of enhanced speed. It is an actual physical space that can be traveled to but doing so is lethal. After making the connection at faster than lightspeed, the person becomes out of phase with reality and is drawn to the Speed Force by spirits of those already merged with it. Thus, the Force acts as an alternate afterlife.

When the Flash was the only hero left standing and the Luthor-Brainiac being about to assimilate the planet, he pushed himself to tap into the power of the Speed Force by running around the planet. Empowered, Flash destroyed Brainiac with lightspeed vibrations but was absorbed into the Speed Force and vanished. J'onn Jonzz made telepathic contact and Shayera Hol found a portal to grab onto the Flash. The rest of the Justice League founders formed a human chain and pulled Flash back to reality. He acknowledged he would never go that fast ever again or he'd die.
