Wally West is a speedster, the original superhero known as Kid Flash and the third character known as The Flash. His mentor was the second Flash, Barry Allen, who took him on as a side-kick after accidentally duplicating an experiment that had given him powers. Iris West, his aunt, is married to Barry. As a member of the Flash Family he has also worked with the other Flashes, Jay Garrick and Bart Allen. Wally's wife is Linda Park and he has two children with her, Jai and Iris. West first became Flash after the Crisis on Infinite Earths, but he has been working alongside the other three since the events of The Flash: Rebirth. He is a founding member of the Teen Titans and a member of the Justice League of America.

Intelligence: Wally West has a college education, mastery of the Speed Force, has many years of experience fighting all kinds of enemies.
- Infinite Mass Punch: Traveling near the speed of light acquired the relativistic mass of such speed to impart blows which could hit with a force greater than that of "a white dwarf star", Flash's own durability regulated by the Speed Force in such cases. Relativistic effects take over as a body approaches light-speed (His control over his powers and the Speed Force is so great, that he can choose to ignore these relativistic effects if he wishes to). Visual input will begin to blueshift and his body's mass will increase towards infinity. With this ability, he was able to knock out a Martian as durable as Superman from Mount Rushmore to the plains of Africa, all with one devastating punch.
- Phasing: The Flash has always possessed the ability to control his speed and angular momentum at the molecular level, and control his molecular interactions to allow his body to pass through any substance. If he chooses, Wally can excite the molecules of whatever substance he vibrates through to critical mass causing it to explode.
- Speed Lend/Steal: Wally is able to lend or steal speed and/or momentum from anyone or anything, including beings such as Superman or Inertia effectively turning them into living statues. Also can steal speed from bullets and other fast moving objects thrown at him or at others. This ability is so great, that he once took the speed from the entire planet, and its population, including the very fast beings such as Superman, Jay Garrick, etc.
- Time Travel: Wally West has shown to be able to traverse time with his own powers, unlike the other speedsters. He can traverse along the time-stream to specific points as they become visible, much like watching a movie in fast forward or reverse. In order to time travel to different periods, he must exceed light speed, which he can easily and instantly do.
