SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for “Invasion!”, the latest episode of “The Flash.”
Ever since he found out he was a speedster in the Flashpoint timeline, Wally West has wanted nothing more than to fulfill that destiny. After an encounter with Doctor Alchemy, that dream seemed to come true, but there’s one little hitch: his father Joe and his sister Iris are doing everything they can to stop him from rushing out into the field. However, that didn’t stop him in “Invasion!”, “The Flash’s” installment of The CW’s big four-show crossover.
That’s right — Wally West got his chance to shine when the Dominators turned their mind-control device on several of our heroes and forced them to battle Green Arrow and the Flash. Just as things were getting dire for Barry, Wally got fed up with waiting and sped onto the battle field, ultimately saving Barry’s life. When Barry expressed his surprise by yelling “Wally!”, Wally corrected him with a smile, saying, “Kid Flash.”
His moment of glory didn’t last too long. After Wally took down not one, but three of their friends, Supergirl swooped out of the sky and knocked him across the park. The force of the blow knocked him out and he was down for the count for the rest of the action. Oliver was forced to carry Wally to safety, all while battling White Canary, Digg and Speedy.
When Wally came to, he got a major “I told you so” from both Joe and Iris. However, they were just glad he made it out of the fire and told him they would worry about it after he recovered. Despite his injuries, this taste of heroism left Wally craving more. As Joe and Iris left him so they could return to the problem at hand, HR approached him and told him that he would help him train, after initially turning him down earlier on the episode. As such, it seems Wally will get the training he desires, even if Barry won’t be the one to do it.
