Previously: Kid Flash I Name:
Kid Flash I / The Flash IIIPowers and abilities:
Wally's primary superpower is his ability to control the speed of which his body vibrates and to move at super speed, which he uses primarily to run at super-human velocities. This super speed is derived from his connection to the Speed Force: an extra-dimensional energy force from which most speedster heroes draw their powers. While most to all speedsters can make a connection and draw upon this force, West "mainlines" power from the Speed Force itself and cannot be cut off from the source. This connection to the Speed Force allows him additional abilities than other speedsters, such as lending and taking speed (which manifests in different ways, ranging from becoming speedsters themselves to bolstering others metabolisms and healing abilities, allowing them to recover from injuries in a fraction of the normal time).Biography
Wally West was born to Rudolph and Mary West in Blue Valley, Nebraska. As a boy, Wally would often daydream, most notably about being the Flash. He idolized the Flash and was the president and sole member of the Blue Valley Flash Fan Club. That is what led him to re-creating the experiment his uncle Barry did that resulted in the accident which turned him into the Flash. Thus, Wally became Kid Flash and often worked as a Side-Kick to the Real Flash. That is, until he died. After Darkseid annihilated everything, and the Justice League fell, the only remaining superheroes in the world were the ones not in the League. Many expected Wally to pick up his uncle and mentor's old costume, but he refused. The Flash as he was, was too weak. Instead, he picked up the Costume of the Reverse Flash, one that belonged to Daniel West (As of the New 52) which symbolized his new lack of hesitation and compassion. He was no longer the soft-spoken, caring Wally. Instead, he became a much more stern and colder Flash that wasn't afraid to get things done.
