-- Impulse src

Bart Allen, also known as Impulse, is a speedster who was somehow trapped in the Speed Force and forgotten to all until the Force Barrier was broken by Barry Allen and Wally West, which finally allowed him to escape.[1]

Flash War

While Barry and Wally battled Zoom in the Timestream, Bart attempted to call out for Wally from inside the Speed Force, although Wally was unable to hear him.[1]

Sometime after the Flashes failed to stop Zoom, Bart discovered that the Force Barrier had been broken, allowing him to finally escape the Speed Force.[1]

Powers

  • Speed Force Conduit: Bart possesses a connection to the Speed Force, a mysterious cosmic force that pushes time and space itself forward. As a conduit of the Speed Force, all aspects of Bart's physiology are accelerated and enhanced.[1]
    • Superhuman Speed: Bart is capable of moving at incredible superhuman speeds.[1]
    • Superhuman Reflexes: Bart possesses reflexes far greater than a normal human being. This allows him to easily react to danger and events, and perceive the world in slow motion.
    • Superhuman Agility: Bart's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to superhuman levels. This allows him to easily maneuver while moving at superhuman speed.[1]
    • Superhuman Stamina: Bart's body can handle the stress of moving at superhuman speeds for long periods of time without out getting tired or weak.
    • Speed Force Aura: Bart's body is surrounded by a "friction cushion", a field of kinetic absorbent energy that protects him and anyone who is running with or carried by him from the rigorous effects of using his speed. Including friction, airborne particulate matter, heavy impacts, G-Force and the like.
      • Superhuman Durability: Thanks to his protective Speed Force aura, Bart is capable of resisting tremendous kinetic impact forces that could easily crush or kill a human, without suffering any serious external or internal injuries.
    • Electrokinesis: As a conduit of the Speed Force, Bart's body generates large amounts of the electrical energy that he draws from the Speed Force. This Speed Force lightning emanates off of him, especially when moving at superhuman speed.[1]
    • Enhanced Senses: The Speed Force grants Bart enhanced senses that allow him to perceive the world at a rate attuned to his reaction speed.
