The Flash's third season will take on the iconic "Flashpoint" storyline, in which Barry's (Grant Gustin) decision to save his mother's life results in an alternate timeline. In this new world, Barry isn't the Flash, which means Wally is likely now Central City's speedster of choice.
In the comics, Wally is secretly mentored by Barry and becomes a member of the Teen Titans. But after Barry's death, Wally takes over the role of the Flash. However, since The CW's version of Wally is Iris' brother and not her nephew, it's clear that The Flash showrunners are taking a bit of creative freedom with the character.
Check out the first images of Wally as Kid Flash below. How do you think he looks?
The Flash returns Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8/7c on The CW.
