Kid Flash – Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) was introduced midway through season two and at first, he wasn’t exactly happy with the family he’d never known. Understandably, not knowing you had a father and a sister would make anyone frustrated, but slowly and surely, Wally formed a bond. First with Iris, then Joe (Jesse L. Martin), and eventually with Barry. Wally was hit by the particle accelerator back when Barry was trying to regain his powers, but aside from being knocked out, Wally didn’t automatically develop his speed.
In Flashpoint, Wally is the hero of Central City, suit and all. He looks pretty awesome in his new costume and it’s nice to finally see him speeding around and finally taking on his mantle as Kid Flash, or rather, just as The Flash. Since in this timeline, he’s playing sidekick to no one and looks to be loving every minute of it. You know what would be even more exciting? If one of the Flashpoint changes made it so his powers remained. Because him and Barry speeding around Central City? I am here for it.
