The Flash Finally Gives Iris Some Powers: See Candice Patton in Her Speedster Costume

An upcoming episode of Season 4 of The Flash will see Iris West becoming a speedster for the very first time. Even Eliza Harmon/Trajectory (remember her?) was basically wearing a precursor to Jesse Quick's speedster costume. The comic book incarnations of both Dawn Allen, Barry and Iris' daughter, and Jenni Ognats, Barry and Iris' granddaughter, the two main theories surrounding the mystery girl's identity.

In her new supersuit, which was revealed on Thursday, Iris even has a handy mask to help hide her identity. He has the ability to swap people's DNA, so during a battle with Team Flash, he transfers Barry's (Grant Gustin) super speed to Iris (Candice Patton).

As EW previously teased, Iris (Candice Patton) will be temporarily suiting up on The Flash - and now we know why!

In a poster released by The CW, it features Iris in a stylish purple-and-white suit and a black mask.

Everytown for Gun Safety has estimated that there have been 290 school shootings since 2013. Young people have always been a powerful voice for change.

The key is the purple and white colour scheme of Iris' costume, which contrasts with the typical red and yellow outfits worn by the rest of the speedsters who have worked with Team Flash. The costume has black trousers (like Iris'), and a purple and white top.

Still, Iris has to be a little envious that she doesn't have any powers. Iris will take the lead to defeat the new threat in Central City while Barry will act a support. She gets Barry's super speed, leaving him slow and steady as tech support.

The Flash returns with a new episode of February 27. So having Iris' costume be a completely different color altogether might seem odd to casual The Flash fans. "Run, Iris, Run" will debut on March 13.
