First Look: Iris West Suits Up!

First Look: Iris West Suits Up!

By Tim Beedle Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Candice Patton has brought some serious style to The Flash. But next month, she takes her look to heroic new levels.

If you’re going to be a superhero, you’d better look the part.

As the leader of Team Flash, Iris West knows this as well as anyone. She’s stood alongside Barry through numerous suit updates and was there when Cisco, Caitlin and Ralph all suited up for the first time. But Iris has never worn a super suit herself, until now…

But wait! We know what you’re thinking! Iris doesn’t have powers. She isn’t a superhero.

Not usually, but on March 13, 2018, look for her to tap into the Speed Force as she takes on Barry’s super speed in an episode entitled, “Run, Iris, Run.” Here’s the official description:

IRIS SUITS UP — Team Flash confronts a new bus meta, Matthew AKA Melting Pot (guest star Leonardo Nam), with the ability to swap people’s DNA. During a battle with Team Flash, Matthew transfers Barry’s (Grant Gustin) super speed to Iris (Candice Patton).  Now, with a new threat unleashed on Central City, Barry must act as the team leader while Iris takes on the mantle of superhero speedster in order to defeat their new foe.  Harry Jierjian directed the episode written by Eric Wallace (#416).  Original airdate 3/13/2018.

You can get your first look at Iris’s new super suit below…

So, if Barry’s the Scarlet Speedster, maybe Iris can be the Blue Bullet? No? Not feeling it? Well, forget the clever nickname, what do you think of the suit? Let us know your thoughts down below in the comments, and don’t miss the return of The Flash next week on The CW!
