Production for Season 3 of The Flash is underway and we have slowly been receiving news of what to expect from the highly successful super hero show. Just weeks ago Grant Guatin Reveaed that the Flashpoint storyline wild he explored in S3. In the Flashpoint comic book storyline Barry Allen finds himself in an alternate timeline where his mother is no longer dead, and most of the world’s heroes are more like villains these days: Aquaman is at war with Wonder Woman; Batman is Thomas Wayne, not Bruce Wayne; and Captain Cold is actually a Central City hero named Citizen Cold.

This all being a direct result of Barry going back in time to save his mom after having his father taken away by Zoom in season 2.

It’s unclear if Wally’s new powers come as a result of being affected by the second particle accelerator explosion — in which Barry tried to get his powers back — or if this Kid Flash exists purely in the Flashpoint storyline. Either way, Wally should be going full Kid Flash this season perhaps as a result of Barry’s absence. Now we just have to wait and see if Jesse Quick was also affected and obtained powers.

For now, take a look at the Kid Flash costume that was revealed this morning by The CW.

The Flash returns Tuesday, July 12 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
