Known Powers

Chemically and electrically enhanced ability to tap into the energy known as the Speed Force to achieve speeds just short of light-speed; lend speed to or borrow speed from moving objects, create objects of concentrated Speed Force energy, become intangible by vibrating molecular mass, perform both limited time and inter-dimensional travel and heal personal injuries by accelerating his metabolism.

Origin

While visiting the lab of his uncle-to-be, Barry Allen (Flash II), Wally's life changed by a seemingly random bolt of lightning duplicated the event that gave Allen his speed, granting Wally identical powers.


Thrilled to be Flash's junior partner, Kid Flash, Wally operated as a member of the Teen Titans and was a super hero all his young life. He grew up the only kid sidekick ever to fulfill the job's inherent promise; when Barry died, it was Wally's responsibility to adopt his costume and identity to become the Flash.
