Wally West was the partner of Barry Allen, who like Barry also possessed superhuman speed powers, who operated under the identity of Kid Flash in the 1960s. In 1964, he was attempting to stop Mirror Master and Weather Wizard from robbing a bank when he was joined by Bruce Wayne Jr. (Robin) and Kara Kent (Supergirl), who were soon overwhelmed and captured by Gorilla Grodd. Later, the three heroes were joined by Stephanie Trevor (Wonder Girl), who freed them from their bondage and helped them take down all three criminals. Wally suggested that they should team together under the name Justice League of America, which the other three heroes accepted. Later on Wally married Magda West and had a son through her named Jay, who in 2008 became the Flash after Carrie Allen retired the identity.
