What's New In The New 52: Iris Gets A New Suit

By Bob Harras Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Welcome to What's New in The New 52 – where you, the fans, get a sneak peek at the stuff that crosses our desks. This little feature is a way to keep you all in the loop about what's new, different and exciting in The New 52 – whether it's a character design, cover, splash page or panel.

If you’ve been reading THE FLASH, you know that the current story arc features a mysterious “Speed Force killer.” Well, in order to keep his good friend safe from this elusive murderer, Barry must find a way to make Iris undetectable to whoever is committing these crimes. Using a method similar to how he constructed his own suit, Barry makes a special protective suit for Iris that will prevent the killer from sensing the Speed Force energy in her. And while Iris doesn’t have speed powers, this suit allows her to comfortably travel at super speed.

But will this suit really stop Iris from becoming the Speed Force killer’s next victim? Plus, how will Barry’s girlfriend Patty react to The Flash spending so much of his time attached to Iris’ hip? Only time will tell, but for the meantime, take a first look at some of Francis Manapul’s beautiful interior art from THE FLASH #22, featuring Iris in her new suit.

Until tomorrow!
