For his successor, see Bart Allen. He was the nephew and former sidekick of Barry Allen.
His parents thought he was setting himself up for failure and did their best to dampen what they believed to be unrealistic expectations, in rather harsh ways.
His father encouraged him to work at the same plant he did, but Wally grew frustrated and hurt and eventually apathetic by their lack of faith in his abilities. At a family reunion, hosted by the Wests, Wally accidentally spilled some soda, inciting his father to yell at him for being so careless.
Wally quickly went to his room in tears. Once there, a familiar looking man, who he thought to be his uncle, came in and began to speak to him.
The man encouraged Wally not to give up on his dreams, giving him confidence that he would reflect back on for years to come.
Kid Flash One summer, when he was ten years old, Wally went to Central City to stay with his Aunt Iriswhom he called his best friend. Iris was going out with police scientist Barry Allen, who was "friends" with the Flash.
Barry "introduced" Wally to his idol, the Flash. In the back room of Barry's apartment was a lab, where Wally asked the Flash all sorts of questions. Kid Flash When he asked Flash how he got his powers, it turned out the speedster had set up his chemical cabinet just as it had been when he was created.
Wally wished that something like that could happen to him; the Flash dismissed it as a billion-to-one chance. However, it just so happened that the weather that particular day was stormy and, at that moment, lightning did strike the cabinet, bathing Wally in the same chemicals that created the Flash.
The Flash taught Wally everything he knew about how to use speed to his advantage, and about the rogues gallery.
Kid Flash The next day, after conquering a crippling fear of fire, Wally apprehended his first criminal, Mister Element. Element had attacked the Art Museum, transmuting many pieces of art into shapeless forms. Element stole the Giardi Atoman atomic model crafted from gold and jewels.
Kid Flash followed Element to the home of Ward Wellington Weaverowner of another Giardi Atom, where he defeated the villain and turned him into the police. Again, lightning struck, causing a matter-transforming machine to transform Wally's costume into a newer, predominantly yellow costume, the design of which Barry had been toying with in the back of his mind.
Wally also joined the Teen Titans.
He began to take classes at Taggert Universitywith hopes of eventually getting a doctorate in physics. Because Wally had been struck by lightning and affected by the charged chemicals when he was a kid, rather than a full grown man, it affected his body differently than it had Barry's.
Although he was able to run through the crippling pain he called "hitting the wall" the summer after he got his powers when adolescence hit, it came back with a vengeance, effectively propelling Wally to quit his super-heroic career.
The New Flash Wally becomes the new Flash. During the Crisis on Infinite Earths after Barry Allen sacrificed his life to destroy the Anti-Monitor's antimatter cannon, an antimatter ray fired by the Anti-Monitor hit Wally full force.
While it knocked his speed down to that of sound, it also removed the malady that caused him intense pain. Wally took Barry's uniform and declared himself the Flash, just until Barry returned.
However, the rest of the population did not share Wally's feeling that Barry was still alive, and they also did not appreciate Wally's attempts at filling Barry's boots. After being publicly embarrassed in a fight with Doctor AlchemyGreen Lantern declared that he would protect Central City.
For about a week, Wally donned his Kid Flash costume again. However, during the next fight with Doctor Alchemy, it finally dawned on him that Barry was not coming back.
Finally, he was accepted as the Flash. Coupled with the emotional pain of what had happened with Ravenanger somehow overcame all the values that Barry had taught him, and he was rather rude and childish for a while. All these mental blocks also slowed him down, sometimes to the point where he lost his speed entirely.Review and pay your bill, sign-up to pay your bill automatically, and see the latest upgrade offers and deals.
