Wallace Rudolph "Wally" West is a superhero that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. Created by John Broome and illustrator Carmine Infantino, he first appeared in Flash #110 in January 1960. He was the nephew of Iris West, Barry Allen's girlfriend, and Barry (who secretly was Wally's hero, the Flash) arranged for him to meet the Flash, but when the Flash was showing Wally the chemicals that were hit by lightning and gave him his super-speed powers, another lightning hit the chemicals and Wally, giving him the same powers. The Flash trained Wally in the use of his powers, taking him in as his crime-fighting partner Kid Flash, who would become a member of the Teen Titans. After Barry sacrifices himself to save the world, Wally takes his place as The Flash (others would fill in as Kid Flash).
Wally makes his first live-action appearance at the end of a Christmas special of the 2014 "The Flash" series.
