Wally West was the partner of Barry Allen, who like Barry also possessed superhuman speed powers, who operated under the identity of Kid Flash in the 1960s. In 1964, he was attempting to stop Mirror Master and Weather Wizard from robbing a bank when he was joined by Bruce Wayne Jr. (Robin) and Kara Kent (Supergirl), who were soon overwhelmed and captured by Gorilla Grodd. Later, the three heroes were joined by Stephanie Trevor (Wonder Girl), who freed them from their bondage and helped them take down all three criminals. Wally suggested that they should team together under the name Justice League of America, which the other three heroes accepted. Later on Wally married Magda West and had a son through her named Jay, who in 2008 became the Flash after Carrie Allen retired the identity.

Powers

  • Speed Force Conduit: People who, for whatever reason, are connected to the Speed Force are sometimes called Speed Force Conduits. This means that they are connected to the Speed Force and are tethered to it.[1]
    • Accelerated Healing: The Speed Force connection allows the speedster's body recover from injury much faster than normal.[citation needed]
    • Enhanced Senses: The Speed Force enhances the speedster's senses, allowing them to perceive the world at a rate attuned how fast they can react.[2]
    • Phasing: Speed Force conduits can tap into the Speed Force to vibrate their molecules in a way to achieve intangibility for short bursts, allowing them to phase through objects.[3]
    • Speed Force Aura: The Speed Force also manifests an aura around the speedster and whatever they are carrying, protecting them from adverse effects of their speed, such a friction with the air.[4]
      • Superhuman Durability: The Speed Force Aura also protects speedsters from kinetic impacts, which in turn, makes them much more durable and resistant to injury than any normal human.[5]
    • Superhuman Stamina: While not unlimited, the connection to the Speed Force does bolster the speedsters stamina well beyond the limits of a normal human.[2]
    • Superhuman Speed: The main effect of the connection is to allow a speedster to move at vast superhuman speeds[2]. This also confers:
    • Vortex Creations: Speed Force conduits are able to create vortices of air by running in circles or rotating their extremities at super-speed. These vortices can be used for a number of effects.[6]
  • This version of the character is native to the Superman & Batman: Generations series of stories.
  • The coloring scheme of Kid Flash's costume is reversed in the Superman & Batman: Generations 2 collected edition.
