Powers

Hyper Speed: Wally’s powers are based on speed. His movement is at Class 3000 airspeed (see below).
Deliver 100 “Good” Blows in a round
Wally moves so fast he is able to perform 9 actions a combat round.
Resist Cold: Excellent
Air Walking: up 90ΓΈ inclines (I.E. up or down buildings): Class 1000
Water Walking: Class 1000 by skimming along on surface tension
Create Cyclones: Monstrous damage or Shift-Y stunning or slamming
Phasing: Wally can vibrate his molecules so fast that he can ‘phase’ through objects of less than Class 1000 material strength. This destroys any inorganic object of less than Unearthly material strength after he passes through it.
When attempting to hit Wally the attacker must have initiative or succeed in an Unearthly Intuition FEAT, otherwise he will have moved out of the way. This FEAT is not required if the attacker also has Hyper-speed powers.
Can destroy Class 3000 material by vibrating through it
Invisibility: by moving extremely fast, Red intuition FEAT to notice
Vibrating Hand: Unearthly damage
Break Restraint: Class 1000
Time Travel: On a Red power FEAT Flash may Break the Time Barrier allowing time travel with Class 3000 ability.
Spectrum Shifting: Wally can run so quickly as to cause light to begin to slow, and experience Red Shift. Which will allows him to view the lower spectrum of light that is normally invisible to the unaided human eye.
One must make a Red FEAT to hit Flash with anything other than an area effect or Psychic attack.
Dimension Travel: Wally may also travel ot any dimension he chooses by travelling through the heart of the speedforce at Class 1000 rank.During Terminal Velocity, Wally combined Max Mercury’s Zen Speed theory with Johnny Quick’s speed formula to go faster than light. He esentially existed outside of time. Capable of entering the “Speedforce”.
Considered Unearthly rank for Fighting for multiple attacks and evading.
Considered Unearthly rank for Agility for dodging and catching projectiles.
Considered Class 1000 rank for Intuition for initiative.
He may percieve any object’s momentum as though it were moving at Feeble speed E.g: Arrows and bullet sized objects appear moving at 5 m/ph
Flash is considered to have Unearthly Endurance for movement and tiring purposes.
May reach maximum speed in one round and has no penalties making high speed manuevers or starting or stopping suddenly.
Energy Sheath: Wally projects an aura that surrounds and protects him from excess heat and friction when he moves allowing him to ignore the enivromental effects of friction (including sonic booms) enabling him to surpass standard speed constraints. Due to this Wally uses the air speed column for movement and is not restricted by atmospheric conditions. This aura seems to be a by-product of the Speed Force, and can slightly blunt physical attacks, as well as the effects of windburn and friction-heat. While moving Wally is considered to have Excellent protection vs. Physical Attacks, and Incredible vs. Heat and Friction, due to the aura that the Speed Force provides him.
Kinetic Generation and Control: Class 1000. Wally’s “slipstream” effect allows him to impart and control momentum in other objects.
Power Transfer: Wally is able to impart speed to others enabling them to “run” at speeds equal to himself. The recipient must already be moving and must be in contact with Wally to recieve thisbenefit.
Steal Speed: Flash can Neutralize a target/objects kinetic energy forcing the target to immediately stops.
Equipment

Standard Costume: Incredible vs. Heat and Cold, Excellent vs. Physical and Energy damage

Limitation

The Call of the Speed Force: If Wally travels at Class 1000 or greater speed he must make a successful Psyche FEAT roll. Failure means he hears the “Call of the Speed Force”. This means he is lost in speed and all subsequent actions he must push himself to break the “Speed Force Barrier” (Class 3000 speed). Upon achieving this speed the must make another Psyche FEAT roll, with failure indicting he is absorbed by the Speed Force and effectively “dies”.

History

Beyond human understanding exists an elemental essence known as the Speed Force, it the source of power that lets those superhumans with the ability to superspeed to move at velocities that far exceeds anything the human body can or should be able to do. To join with the Speed Force is to go beyond the limits of physically known speed and to enter a realm that is more a metaphysical afterlife rather than a normal dimension.

To those that have attained the ability of superspeed the Speed Force is literally the Creator, and at times it can seem to be an intelligence that guides the fates and destinies of any that are fortunate enough to be part of it. Those that do for what ever reason become connected with the Speed Force are destined to became heroes or in the rarer case villains. One name that has become synonymous with the ability is the name of the Flash and the three generations of heroes who have carried the mantel.

The first Flash was Jay Garrick whom first gained his superpowers while a student at Midwestern university. He would go onto become one of the stars of the Golden Age and a founding member of the Justice Society of America. Jay retired when the JSA disbanded. To an extend the memory of Jay Garrick and his home of Keystone City would fade because of a plot by a number of his foes to isolate Keystone City from the rest of the world by a memory clouding spell.

Meanwhile police scientist Barry Allen was transformed into a second Flash when his laboratory was struck by a bolt of lightning knocking over a cabinet of unknown chemicals onto him. Like his predecessor before him Barry Allen became one of the core members of the superhero community and a founding member of the Justice League of America.

Wally West grew up with a strained family life, but for all intents and purposes he was a normal child. Except for three events in his childhood. One was being the head of the Flash Fan club at school, the second was the words of a stranger to never let go of his dreams (that stranger was later to be revealed to be Wally himself on a roller coaster ride through his own life via the Speed Force), the third was the fact that Wally was the nephew of Barry Allen (a.k.a. the second Flash).

Barry actually arranged for Wally to met the Flash and while at the lab where the original accident had transformed Barry into the Flash, Wally asked if the same thing could happen to him. As if fate needed to no more promoting a second lightning bolt hit the building and this time transformed Wally West into the Kid Flash, junior side kick of the Flash.

Wally played the part of the Kid Flash along side Barry and eventually became a founding member of the Teen Titans. At that time Wally was as fast as Barry but some have conjectured that perhaps Barry was actually subconsciously transferring speed to Wally in the same way that Wally can now do to others. However things have always been for more complex for Wally, his collage work began to suffer and he discovered that he had gained a condition where if he overused his superspeed then he might very well die.

Retiring from the adventuring life Wally was to eventually return to active status during the Crisis when a blast from the Anti-Monitor sent the disease into remission yet at the same time dramatically reduced his top speed. After the death of Barry while saving the planet, Wally took up the name of the Flash and tried to follow in the foot steps of Flash II.

At almost every stage Wally was somehow reminded of Barry and he grew tired of the comparisons, particularly from people such as Ralph Dibny (a.k.a. The Elongated Man). However as time went by Wally began to increase in speed again and to move from under the shadow of Barry Allen. Along the way he has had as always a roller coaster private life including winning the state lottery, loosing the money, finding out that his dad was actually a Manhunter agent and slowly falling in love with the television reported Linda Park. All this was to be turned on its head when as part of the Zero-hour Wally had to push his speed to the limit in an effort to close an Entropy rift, in the process he was catapulted into the timestream and was plunged into the Speed Force as Barry once had in his final moments.

Wally was different, the Speed Force transformed Wally to the point that he now has a “direct line” to the heart of the force that grants all the speedsters their speed. It has transformed his abilities and he may now well be the fasted man that has ever lived. It has also galvanised Wally as never before and forced him to examine his humanity. Wally West can now run faster than any of the other Flashes before him, if he hits light speed he is catapulted into the Speed Force with an effect that often means that he enters the timestream allowing him to time travel under the control of the Speed Force.

Wally can also impart kinetic energy to objects turning normal materials into superfast bullets, by the same effect if he vibrates him self and passes through an object now he imparts to much kinetic energy to the molecules of the object that it is not unusual for the object to explode. At last Wally West is the Flash in his own right and is only now taking his rightful place among the statesmen of the superhero community.

Wally faced perhaps his greatest challenge in the form of Savitar, who had joined with the Speed Force sometime after the retirement of the original Flash and the emergence of the second. He had devoted his life to the study of the speed force and had turned it into his religion. During the course of the battle Johnny Quick lost his life and Wally finally realised that he had to give Savitar what he wanted. Wally used his speed to boost Savitar to such a velocity that he was propelled into the Valhalla of the Speed Force.

On yet another roller coaster flight through the future Wally found himself teaming up with future Flash John Fox and the Tornado Twins (the children of Barry Allen). Meanwhile back in his home time John Fox (also time travelling) had tried to take the place of Wally. This started to generate feels for John by Linda with the result that the emotional bond that anchors Wally to this world started to breakdown leaving at the mercy of the Speed Force. It took everything that Wally had to return to our own time, make John Fox realise his errors and defeat the bad guys. The emotional bond between Linda and Wally was further reinforced during a recent battle with Neron.
