QUOTE: "Say it was a miracle that saved you last night. Don't say it was an invisible hero. Don't say it was the Flash." —Linda Park-West

SUMMARY: Following a near-tragic accident, police mechanic Wally West has discovered that he possesses some astonishing abilities. Somehow, he's able to attain incredible speeds on foot, speeds no normal human is capable of, speeds comparable to those once achieved by the Flash! Keystone City's scarlet protector is nowhere to be found, however, leaving the city's top detectives scrambling to discover who's serially killing police personnel by encasing them in ice. Alexander Petrov, the Keystone Police Department's new forensic scientist, visits the police garage to examine the evidence at hand, butting heads with West along the way. The incensed young mechanic takes to the street for his lunch break early. There, he's confronted by a trio of thugs, a situation he considers the perfect opportunity to put his newfound abilities to the test.
