The Speed Thief
Main article: The Flash: Lightning Strikes Twice During the Speed Force Storm of Central City Avery Ho was struck by lightning and was given access to the Speed Force like dozens of other citizens. Due to her mindset Avery had no control of her new powers and as such constantly vibrated, unable to stop herself. She was soon visited by the Flash and the speedster Dr. Meena Dhawan of S.T.A.R. Labs. After being taught how to control her vibrations she was brought to Dhawan's Speed Force Academy where she was taught to refine gifts under the guide of the Flash, August Heart and Dhawan. Soon after this she and a number of Speedsters including Dhawan were attacked by an unknown speedster who stole all of the speedsters speed, killing them in the process. Avery was able to escape with her life and warned the Flash of what was happening but upon returning the pair were too late as the speedsters were all seemingly dead.
Days later The Flash discovered that the Speed Thief calling himself Godspeed was his partner August Heart, who seeked to have all the Speed Force so he could kill every criminal in Central City. He took the speed from the victims of the storm although he didn't want them to die. The Flash theorized that he would be able to take the speed off the citizens if they were willing for the process. Knowing that this was the only way to stop Godspeed from killing them the citizens agreed to go through with it. Flash took everyone's speed but before he could take Avery's speed Godspeed attacked him. Flash was able to defeat Godspeed with the help of Kid Flash and so Avery got to keep her powers.
