In the comics, Jesse Quick is a speedster in her own right. The name is actually an alias for Jesse Chambers, the Flash’s fellow speedster and the daughter of DC Comics heroes Johnny Quick and Liberty Belle. Like her father, she achieves her super speed through the speed formula. In addition to speed, she also has her mother’s super strength.
The show, however, has gone a different route with the character. Instead, she is the daughter of Earth-2's Harrison Wells, who founded STAR Labs. In the last few episodes of Season 2, both Jesse and Wally West were hit full-on by the Speed Force when Harrison attempted to give his speed back; this sent Jesse into a coma, though she came out of it pretty quickly and showed no signs of speedster abilities. But fear not, "Flash" fans -- it sounds like all that may change in Season 3, at least according to this new report.
Either way, Beane is ready and willing to don a costume of her own. In April, the actress told CBR, "I am very excited. I think it may happen, because there have been so many hints about it. If, and when that does happen, I cannot wait. I’ve talked to everyone about their own suits, and they love them. They put them on and they were like, 'I feel like a superhero. I feel so cool.' I can’t wait to see if that happens to me, where I put it on and feel that way, too."
"If they do it, the suit won’t be quite like the ones in the comics," she added at the time.
