QUOTE: "I know it's hard to change... You're young, strong, free... and faster than a speeding bullet. If you really want to change, you'll think of something." óJoan Garrick

SUMMARY:  In a darkened movie theater, whilst watching a film with girlfriend Connie Noleski, Wally West finds that his superspeed powers have been subconsciously engaged. As the world around him comes to a seeming standstill, Wally discovers the trigger for this reaction: a bullet is resting at the back of his neck. Someone in the cinema has fired off an automatic weapon, and Wally will have to work quickly to make sure that all of the stray bullets have been plucked from the air before apprehending the hidden assassin. Donning his crimson costume to take action, the Flash can't help but wonder if he's become a target. Meanwhile, Wally's mother uses his JLE teleportation tube to visit Italy, where a simple afternoon of shopping soon comes to involve romance and international intrigue.
