Ever since the reality-altering events of Flashpoint, Wally West has had a tumultuous time within the DC Universe. Lost within the reshaped DC Multiverse due to tampering caused by Doctor Manhattan, Wally emerged at the start of DC Rebirth.
TO RESCUE “THE SPEED FORCE”
Wally West returns to Central City in the March 3 episode of The Flash, titled “Death of the Speed Force,” according to a new synopsis released by The CW. The speedster has been missing for a while, and even seemed like he may have died during the comic book tie-in to “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” but instead it seems he is coming back to see Team Flash because he is pretty sure there is something wrong with the Speed Force, the energy field from which the two Flashes and all other speedsters draw their powers.
DISCOVERER OF SPEED FORCE
In the comics, Wally West was the first Flash to discover the Speed Force, since the idea was not introduced until after Barry Allen died in the Crisis. He would become a master of manipulating it to to “level up” his powers, even at one point having a costume created from concentrated Speed Force energy, which could then disappear and reappear at will.
WALLY WEST SPEEDS BACK INTO CENTRAL CITY
Kid Flash (guest star Keiynan Lonsdale) returns to Central City with a Zen attitude and new tricks up his sleeve. While thrilled to see his family again, Wally confides to Barry (Grant Gustin) that he returned because he thinks there is something wrong with the speed force. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) returns from his fact-finding mission across Earth-Prime.
