SUMMARY: After receiving a traffic ticket earned while speeding around in his new sports car, and after learning of girlfriend Francis Kane's departure from his life, Wally West is feeling down. He heads for Utah, where a regional S.T.A.R. Lab plans to study his speed and to help with the problems he's encountered using his powers. Things get a bit too hectic for scientific study, however, when the Flash unwittingly releases an alien computer life form from stasis during the tests. The self-proclaimed Kilg%re immediately begins a murderous rampage, growing all the while. The mechanical beast is certain to unleash world annihilation unless the Flash and his scientific companions can figure out a way to stop it!
