Iris West is the superhero known as "The Flash" in an alternate timeline.

At some point of time she gained super-speed abilities.[1]


  • Speed Force Conduit: Iris 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 Iris's physiology are accelerated and enhanced.[2]
    • Accelerated Healing: By having a connection to the speed force, Iris has an incredibly fast healing ability and can heal from most injuries in seconds and devastating injuries in minutes.[3]
    • Enhanced Senses: The Speed Force enhances Iris's senses, allowing her to perceive and process thoughts faster than the normal person.[4]
    • Phasing: Iris can tap into the Speed Force to vibrate her molecules in a way to achieve intangibility for short bursts, allowing her to phase through objects.[5]
    • Speed Force Aura: The Speed Force manifests an aura around Iris and whatever She is carrying, protecting her from adverse effects of her speed, such as friction with the air.[6]
      • Superhuman Durability: The Speed Force Aura also protects Iris from kinetic impacts, which in turn, makes her much more durable and resistant to injury than any normal human.[7]
    • Superhuman Stamina: The Speed Force grants Iris with a great increase of stamina, allowing her to fight or run much longer than the average person. Although a great increase, it is not unlimited.[4]
    • Superhuman Speed: The universal factor of being a Speed Force conduit grants Iris with imperceptible amounts of speed. All powers that Iris possesses derives from her speed.[4]. This also confers:
      • Superhuman Agility: Iris's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to superhuman levels. This allows her to easily maneuver while moving at superhuman speed.[4]
      • Superhuman Reflexes: In conjunction with her enhanced senses, Iris's reflexes are heightened immesurably, allowing her to dodge or react faster than normal.[4]
    • Vortex Creations: Iris is able to create vortices of air by running in circles or rotating her extremities at super-speed. These vortices can be used for a number of effects.[8]
