Time to suit up! After spending half of last season wondering what was up with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin)—and being zapped during the team's botched attempt to recreate the particle-accelerator explosion—it seems that Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) is ready for action.

In this just-released look at his new look as Kid Flash, the secret son Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) is sporting the DC Comics character’s classic red-and-yellow costume, modified cowl and look of speedy determination. How he taps into his supersonic skills and what role he plays in the Flashverse now that Barry has gone back and rewritten the past to save his mom is obviously a huge spoiler, but we can reveal that Kid Flash will make his first official appearance in The Flash's October 4 third-season premiere, titled “Flashpoint.” So y’all might want to grab the DC Comics graphic novel of the same name for more hints.
