Background/History: From "Those Who Ride the Lightning" a Flash Fansite. http://www.hyperborea.org/flash/.
Junior high school student Wally West, president of Blue Valley, Nebraska's Flash Fan Club, was visiting his aunt Iris in Central City and her boyfriend Barry Allen. Barry offered to introduce Wally to the Flash - in costume, he explained to Wally the accident which gave him his powers, when suddenly it reoccurred, granting Wally the same abilities! Barry took him into his confidence, and made him his sidekick, Kid Flash. Wally was a founding member of the Teen Titans.
Unfortunately, the accident had a slightly different effect on Wally's adolescent body. He developed a disease which would kill him if he used his speed. A blast of energy during the Crisis - the same war in which Barry sacrificed his life - cured Wally of this disease, but left him with a top speed roughly that of sound.
In honor of his mentor, Wally took the name and costume of the Flash. He went through a difficult period of emotional instability during which he used his powers irresponsibly, developed a reputation as a womanizer, and finally sought psychiatric help, As he matured - much of which he credits to his now-longstanding relationship with reporter Linda Park - and learned to fulfill his responsibility, Wally slowly developed confidence and regained his earlier speed.
Finally breaking through his mental block of replacing Barry Allen, he achieved full speed, only to find himself changing into energy. In the midst of a battle for Keystone, he sacrificed his life and his humanity to save Linda - and became the only person known to return from the other side of the speed barrier. Wally now has a direct connection to the speed force, and subconscious knowledge of new ways to use it, including the ability to lend speed to other objects and people (Terminal Velocity and aftermath: Flash #95-101, 1994-1995).
Wally now wears a costume made of concentrated speed force energy. Unable to wait for both broken legs to heal and inspired by a then-recent Justice League case, he gained enough control over the speed force to create a costume which would support him and enable him to run despite his injury (Flash #131, 1997).
Wally and Linda finally married, but Linda was kidnapped from the wedding by Abra Kadabra and retroactively erased from history (Flash #142, 1998). Wally's sacrifice at the end of “Chain Lightning,” entering the Speed Force to defeat Cobalt Blue, appeared final. He was, in fact, drawn back into reality when Linda escaped her prison outside of time. Trapped alongside her in an alternate reality, battling first a blue-eyed version of himself driven over the edge by his own Linda's death at the hands of Kobra, then Kadabra himself, he and Linda searched endless alternate realities before finally returning to their own and tricking Kadabra into reversing his spell (Flash #153-158, 1999). Restored to their own world at last, they immediately picked up where they left off, holding the wedding that afternoon.
Several months into Linda's first pregnancy, Zoom attacked Linda to “teach” Wally about tragedy firsthand. Linda survived, but the unborn twins did not. In his grief, Wally made a deal with the Spectre to make the world forget who he was, hoping that Wally and Linda would be safe from the Flash's enemies. What the Spectre did not tell him was that he and Linda would forget as well.
Wally and Linda have since regained their memories, though it took time for them to pick up the pieces of their their life and marriage. Miraculously, a time-travelling rematch with Zoom created a “fissure in time” that restored Linda's pregnancy, just in time for her to give birth. The Wests are currently looking forward to raising their new family.
Personality/Motivation: Wally is a hero out of his own desire to do good as well as his responsibility to uphold his uncle Barry's good name.
Appearance: Like you could get him to sit still long enough to know!
