QUOTE: "There were doors all round the hall, but they were all locked. And when Alice had been all the way down one side and up the other, trying every door, she walked sadly down the middle, wondering how she was ever to get out again." óLewis Carroll

SUMMARY: The Flash finds himself at Keystone City Police Headquarters, only he's not there to assist the police in apprehending any criminal, he's being taken into custody! No one at the station recognizes his red and yellow costume and, before long, the powerless hero is being severely beaten by brutal, heavily-armored police officers. Between thrashings and nightmares Wally struggles to comprehend what has happened to him. Somehow, the fastest man alive has been transported to a world where villains have become cops, Aquaman is dead, Barry Allen is still alive, and no one has ever heard of the Flash!
