The Flash Unveils First Look At Kid Flash—In Costume!
The speedster’s loss is another’s gain. When Barry Allen ran back in time to save his mother in the Season 2 finale of The Flash, he inadvertently created an alternate timeline—and maybe even an alternate Flash.

On Tuesday, The CW revealed the first look at Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) as Kid Flash in his iconic yellow-and-red costume; he’ll make his official debut as the kid speedster in the Season 3 premiere, titled “Flashpoint.” However, it’s still unclear if Kid Flash exists solely in the Flashpoint timeline—or if the second particle accelerator explosion Harrison Wells created in Season 2 gave Wally his newfound speed.
Both Wally and Jesse Wells (a.k.a. speedster Jesse Quick in the DC Comics universe) were both knocked out by the force of the second particle accelerator explosion, but neither exhibited any speedster abilities before the season ended. If Wally does become Kid Flash in Barry’s timeline, then we wonder if this suit will undergo any modifications, courtesy of Cisco.
Either way, Wally West is here! (At least for the time being.)
