Superhero Iris makes her debut in a new photo from THE FLASH!
It seems like just about everyone on The Flash has suited up besides the show’s leading lady Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton.) But that is about to change in an upcoming episode!
We know what you’re thinking: Iris doesn’t have any metahuman powers. But she will! …At least temporarily.
Here’s the scoop on Iris’ big twist from EW:
In the upcoming March 13 episode, Team Flash confronts a new bus meta, Matthew (Leonardo Nam). Otherwise known as Melting Pot, the meta has the ability to swap people’s DNA. During a battle with the team, Matthew transfers Barry’s (Grant Gustin) super speed to Iris, giving her the powers of the Flash. Hence, when a new threat is unleashed on Central City, Barry must act as the team leader, while Iris takes over as a speedster in order to defeat their new foe.
She may be getting Barry’s powers, but Iris will have a style all her own. Check out her suit in the reveal image below:
The Flash airs Tuesdays on The CW. Iris’ big episode comes Tuesday, March 13th.
