Synopsis for "Flash: Year One - Born to Run!, Chapter 1: Thunder Struck"
Two terrorists are arrested and tell the cops a bomb is going off shortly. Flash looks for a bomb at the Central City Airport with his super speed. He recalls holding onto a firecracker until the last second and then throwing it as a kid to see how brave he was. He performs a similar task with the bomb as it is seconds from going off. The casing begins to break and he throws the bomb into the air saving the airport and the 300 people there.
Wally heads to a restaurant to order one of everything. He thinks about how he has to eat so much food to keep up with his metabolism. He overhears a familiar voice and turns to see his Grandpa, Ira West. Wally sees how Ira is starting to become forgetful and he thinks about how wonderful the Allen Family is and how much he admires, and misses, Iris Allen. He thinks she couldn't have married a better guy than Barry Allen. Wally drives his Grandfather home and rummages through Iris's old items boxed up that have been there since she died.
Wally recalls when he was ten, the summer he moved to Central City to live with his Aunt Iris. From the day he arrived, they were close. She agreed to take him to the Flash Museum, but they are interrupted by men robbing the diamond exchange. The Flash stops by to stop them but he trips on some jewelry. When one of the criminals is about to shoot the fallen Flash, Wally moves quick and opens a fire hydrant knocking the thief off balance. It buys the Flash enough time to take care of the criminals. Iris ran to phone in the incident since she's a news reporter. She tells Wally they are going to have lunch with her fiance, Barry Allen. Barry shows up with wet hair. Wally finds him boring.
Later, when Iris goes to work and leaves Wally with Barry, Barry takes him to his police lab where he tells him he'll introduce him to the Flash. He has Wally go through a door where he transforms quickly to turn into the Flash and show him the lab. When he starts telling him of the incident that caused him to receive super speed, a storm is roaring outside. Suddenly, a bolt of lighting hits Wally as he stands in front of a wall of chemicals that originally infused Barry with his Speed Force powers.
