Move over, Black Lightning and Black Panther. It’s time for Black Fabulous!

That’s right, after years of proving that she is just as super as any superhero, The Flash‘s Iris West (Candice Patton) is finally suiting up and showing Team Flash what’s up.

Check out a full look at Iris here:

In next week’s episode, “Run Iris, Run,” the woman who is already running the show at S.T.A.R. Labs finds herself bestowed with speedster skills after the gang crosses paths with a villain who is able to swap peoples’ DNA. Known as the Melting Pot (Leonard Nam), the metahuman works his Freaky Friday weirdness on the Allens during a fight that leaves Barry (Grant Gustin) basically powerless and wife Iris all sorts of accelerated.

Before you can say “Finally!”, Iris is leathered-up and racing into action, while hubby stays back to run point from their command center. Obviously, the switcheroo will have to be reversed, but is it too much for us to hope that Iris is left with some sort of superpower? Because this look is way too amazing to hang up after one episode.
