|SuperFriends Comic Book Character|
|Real name:||Wally West|
|Base:|| Titan's Lair|
One summer when Wally was ten, he visited his aunt Iris' fiancee, Barry Allen, at the Central City police laboratory where Barry worked. The freak accident that gave Allen his powers repeated itself. Wally was shot into a rack of chemicals by a bolt of lightning, just like Barry. After revealing his identity to Wally, Barry offered to train the boy on how to use his new powers. Wally was the first person, aside from Iris to know the Flash's double-identity.
Wally became Kid Flash (the first Kid Flash and the third Flash), fighting crime either alone or with the Flash.
Wally was also a founding member of the newly created Teen Titans, where he became friends with Dick Grayson, then known as Robin and Aqualad. Kid Flash remained a member in good standing of that team.
