Background Information

In the Comics

While visiting his aunt Iris' fiancee, Barry Allen (Flash), Wally West got a chance to meet his idol, unaware that the Scarlet Speedster was his future uncle. But while talking the Flash, Wally was shot into a rack of chemicals by a bolt of lightning, just like Barry was over a year ago. To his amazement, the chemicals had given Wally the power of super speed, just like the Flash. After revealing his identity to Wally, Barry offered to train the boy on how to use his new powers. Given a miniature version of Flash's costume (which was later altered in a later adventure), Wally became Kid Flash (the first Kid Flash and the third Flash), fighting crime either alone or with the Flash.[1]


Kid Flash did not appear in any episodes of the Superfriends.

Appearances in Other Media

Flash DCAU Wally West The Flash, commonly called the "Fastest Man Alive," was a young and popular superhero from Central City and a founding member of the Justice League. Apart from his vast speed powers, Wally's most significant qualities were his approachability and his down-to-earth, quintessentially human nature — qualities that many said made him the "heart of the Justice League." In his civilian life, Wally West worked as a forensic scientist with the Central City Police Department. The precise circumstances of the incident in which Wally West gained his powers have never been fully revealed. It appears that Wally was the subject of a freak accident in which lightning struck a rack of chemicals in a laboratory. Somehow this combination endowed Wally with the fantastic speed powers for which he would become renowned. Adopting the costumed identity of the Flash, Wally fought to protect the people of Central City from various threats, particularly those of the criminal variety.

This version of Wally West is based on Superman: The Animated Series (1996-2000), the Justice League (2001-2004), and the Justice League Unlimited (2004-2006) animated series produced for the Cartoon Network.
