QUOTE: "Barry would help anyone anytime.  He taught me that my abilities were a precious trust.  He died owing thousands of dollars in legal bills.  The Justice League had to pay for his funeral.  He left me his costumes.  And a picture of what a hero should be." —Wally West


SUMMARY: Wally West—now living on his own, trying to establish himself as the rightful heir to the title of the Flash—finds his twentieth birthday filled with unpleasant surprises. After leaving a party in his honor in order to transport a human heart across the country for an urgent transplant, Wally faces heated arguments with medical staff, the mysterious death of a private investigator, and an attempted plane hijacking. It all climaxes with the greatest of birthday surprises, a winning lottery ticket, and a horrifying realization: the villainous and immortal Vandal Savage has taken an interest in the new Flash!
