"Remember when we went to Save*Co and we saw that lady leading her little kid on
a leash? I don't want to be that kid, do you?" —Iris West
SUMMARY: Whilst patrolling Keystone City to assess the
damage remaining from the recent alien invasion, the Flash inadvertently
discovers yet another unusual superpower relating to his gifted twins.
The speed force allows Wally to summon Jai or Iris to him with a mere
thought, pulling them in his wake at super speed. Though Iris is
frustrated to know that she is at the beck and call of her father, the
unexpected ability proves invaluable when Jai, reeling from the recent
revelation that his unique biology may mean an early end to his life,
runs away from home. When the Flash locates his troubled son, however,
he discovers that Jai's distress has unleashed a bevy of biological
abnormalities and prompted a sort of evolutionary crisis!
