- I'll be back in a flash!
- — The Flash src
Wally West was the Flash, a speedster and member of the Super Friends.
Wally West became a conduit of the Speed Force after being dosed with chemicals which had just been hit by lightning bolt sent by Mopee. With his newfound powers, Wally became the protege of the second Flash, Barry Allen, under the codename Kid Flash. When he grew up, Wally continued the legacy of the Flash Family by becoming the third Flash and served as a member of the Super Friends.
After a mission with their team, The Flash and Green Lantern were abducted by their rivals, Professor Zoom and Sinestro. Using a machine from the 25th Century, they erased Wally's ability to use his super-speed and John's ability to use his Green Lantern Ring while they masqueraded as them. The two ended up briefly switching powers to escape their imprisonment. The Flash and Green Lantern then ambushed their nemeses and sent them off to jail.
