Wally West src

Wally West was a member of the Flash Family, until he became possessed by a mysterious entity called Famine. He took away the rest of the Family's access to the Speed Force, and began attacking people around the world.


Five years before Bart Allen's death, Wally West changed, developing an hunger for Speed Force and taking away the connection of Barry Allen with it. After doing that, he proceeded with an attack against Titans Academy, where he found and killed his cousin, Wallace West, draining him of both his Speed and his life. In the five years which followed, he kept on killing around the world, because he had to: Famine, the rider of Apocalypse, was possessing him. But his mind still lived, isolated, in the Speed Force: he did what he had to do to restrain his master from killing the members of the Flash Family, hoping they might find a way to save him.

After killing members of the Global Guardians in Kahndaq, he was reached by Barry and other speedsters thanks to a particular network able to contact the minds of people connected with the Speed Force. While there, he revealed to Barry that he was a slave of another force, called Famine. He also told them he could not free himself up, and that connecting them back with the Speed Force would just condemn them to certain death. He also tried to explain his friends what Famine really wanted, but before he could do it, Famine took full control and killed Jay Garrick.[1]
