In Flash #110 (Oct 1959), Barry Allen meets Iris West’s nephew, Wall West for the first time. And wouldn’t you know it, the exact same lightning bolt + random chemical accident happens to the poor kid while the Flash is showing him around the laboratory. Of course the kid gains super-speed, so naturally let’s set him up to be a supporting feature in this magazine, complete with a smaller version of Flash’s red suit 🙂
Kid Flash does a pretty good job at both re-capturing escaped zoo animals and protecting his secret identity from his nosy Aunt Iris.
Meanwhile, in “The Challenge of Weather Wizard”, also in this issue, Flash gains a new super-villain for his Rogues Gallery in the Weather Wizard. Mark Mardon is an escaped criminal who has stolen his deceased brother Clyde’s weather research for nefarious purposes.
