Iris requests him to go on the record secretly, and he concurs. He at that point discloses to her that the apart association is called Black Hole. She and the remainder of the staff at the Citizen think of a course of events for Black Hole ‘s association .
Iris composes a proper gather with McCulloch ‘s CEO, Joseph Carver, yet does n’t anticipate that him should give an official comment. Iris meets with Carver, who has assumed control over the administration without Eva McCulloch, his wife. Iris stands up to Carver about the firearm, and he takes her to a mystery separate of the office. Carver contends that Gene was distrustful and made up bogus data about Black Hole. Iris chooses to run the story as is at any rate. late in her office, Iris distributes the article, and is promptly sued by McCulloch for slander. Cecile distinguishes that something is n’t right – similarly as the Dr. Light discharge the firearm through the Citizen workplaces. Iris chooses to discover Gene and ensure he ‘s sheltered, and solicits the rest from the staff to escape all alone. Iris discovers Gene, however he is killed by Dr. Light. Iris snatches Gene ‘s hope condition batting order and drives aside, as the cause of death marginally harms her .

[ 58 ] She late goes to her apartment with Barry .

Trapped in the Mirrorverse

Barry wouldn’t give up; the woman he married won’t either.

Afterward, Iris starts to presume that Black Hole had something to do with Eva McCulloch ‘s vanish. Before going to McCulloch Technologies, she wrote in a notebook a note with “ Eva ” written to be read by being reflected. While exploring McCulloch Technologies, [ 57 ] she was taken to the Mirrorverse by Eva McCulloch, [ 59 ] although Iris did not see that it was Eva who took her. She saw a mirror duplicate of herself acting romantically to Barry. She was trying to tell Barry that the Iris he was hugging was not her, to no avail. [ 60 ] She was in the McCulloch Technologies from the Mirrorverse, where she met Eva McCulloch. She started to lose hope of escaping after repeatedly trying. Iris was encouraging to her and reminded her that she was a great scientist. however, Eva was the one who trapped her and sent the mirror knockoff, although Eva authentically wanted to escape. [ 61 ] Iris inquires as to Eva whether she can possibly fabricate a machine to get them out of the mirror measurement. Eva chooses to be brave, as a consequence of Iris ‘ model. When it comes time to utilize the machine, Eva frenzies, and shows Iris that the machine wo n’t work – it ‘ll open up a gateway, however the person stroll through will get scorched. Eva discloses that she needed to demonstrate the machine did n’t work, on the grounds that in any case Iris would n’t confide in her. Iris later leave the room. [ 62 ] When Wally West reunited with the team, she was felicitous for him despite not being able to meet him physically. [ 63 ] Iris discloses to Eva she thoroughly considers she ‘s discovered a way. Iris discloses to Eva that Barry is the Flash and that he may be the way to getting them out of the Mirrorverse. [ 64 ] After Eva ‘s leery attitude, she entered to a mystery room hidden in a mirror wall and realized that Eva kidnapped her and that Kamilla Hwang and David Singh were besides trapped in this dimension. After this, Eva tied her to a chair and showed her Barry fighting Mirror Iris with his sabotage powers. When Iris said that Eva inactive loved Joseph Carver, Mirror Iris stopped fighting. When Mirror Iris expressed her wishes to be herself, she was killed by Eva. After that, Eva used Ramsey Rosso ‘s blood to cross to Earth-Prime. Iris promised Barry to be hard through the mirror and stated that she would rescue Kamilla and Singh. [ 59 ] The position was degenerating Iris ‘ mind. It started being apparent since Iris entered to the mystery room. Iris filmed a video for Barry in a calculator in the probability he could find her. Iris found Kamilla in S.T.A.R. Labs making experiments with the Lightning dagger to find an exit. Kamilla initially did not trust Iris out of fear she was the mirror ringer that sent her to the Mirrorverse, but after Iris told her about Kamilla being one of the lone people allowed to use Cisco ‘s Chewbacca ‘s jersey, both shared a hug. [ 65 ] Iris was adapting more to the place when she was searching for David Singh. On one of the computer monitors, she saw a heat key signature. She persisted searching despite Kamilla ‘s reservations. She determined that he was at Central City Hospital before she abruptly vanished. [ 66 ]


Iris was sent to the Central City Citizen to be tortured by Eva. She had a sight of her and Barry dining a cup of tea Clark Kent advised, but it was revealed to be false. Iris was broken by reflections of early parts of her life, like when she worked on CC Jitters, when she was about killed by Savitar or her honest-to-god self that dampened Nora ‘s powers. Since Iris discovered Eva was using these reflections to break her, she got to stop her. She got an mind to get out of the Mirrorverse and sent a message to Kamilla and David to meet on the Speed Lab. [ 67 ] Iris found Kamilla making a grafitti to tell Iris about her whereabouts and both went to the Speed Lab. When they met David Singh, Kamilla and David fainted due to the mind damage caused by being sent to the Mirrorverse through the Mirror gunman. For strange reasons Iris got cognition about the Mirrorverse ‘s effects on the mind. When Iris was to send them to the hospital, Barry opened a portal vein to release her. however, since Barry was mentally affected to not have empathy and was adamant about only releasing her, she fought against it. Barry released her, but she fainted after being released. [ 68 ]

Reviving the Speed Force

When Iris finally awakened, she walked from the hospital to the Artificial Speed Force machine and touched it ; Iris was focused on giving Barry his travel rapidly. The Team theorized that Iris had residual Speed Force in her cells which the machine absorbed and shunned into Barry, restoring his powers as The Flash. The energy handout was so massive that it exited from S.T.A.R. Labs and exploded into four different directions. With Barry, Cisco, and Frost gone to fight Eva, Iris joined the b-squad at comms. When Eva began to get the upper-hand, Iris realizes that animal pull would not bring victory, so she uses a fume fail to teleport to Eva ‘s location and judge persuading her to desist. When Eva attempted to launch mirror particles at Iris, she could stop them due to having acquired some control over mirrors during her stay in the Mirrorverse. Iris convinced Eva that she was bringing destruction to the populace. Eva wanted to stop the invasion, but did not have the wedge to do it alone, so Barry and Iris held hands with her. Afterwards, Eva retreated to the Mirrorverse. [ 56 ]


Iris had trouble writing an article for the newspaper, because she tried to remain detached from her experiences in the Mirrorverse ; Allegra advised her as Iris ‘ editor that people wanted to know the accuracy about had happened to her in the other proportion.

[ 74 ] To get rid of his illness, Iris decided to go with Sue Dearbon for Coast City to investigate the “ Coast City Phantom ”, which is actually Tinya Wazzo, a adolescent metahuman they found in Jitters using a meta tracker app. They approached Tinya but she left and broke Iris ‘s cell telephone with her powers. As Tinya was looking for her mother, Iris and Sue managed to track her again and promised to help her. They then went to a luxury hotel to rest at night.

With the help of future Jay Garrick, she met Barry and dissuaded him from continuing to fight Thawne since it would end damaging the city. After Barry meditated to undo Thawne ‘s damage in the city and reunited with the team, Iris was found to no long have a prison term nausea. [ 77 ]

After this, her diagnose on the article changes to Julie Greer. [ 36 ] [ 79 ] There have been many versions of this event, for example one is seen with H.R. with Plunder ‘s plunder fixed on Savitar while another version did not contain anyone on top of the roof. After the kill of Savitar, Iris ‘s name appeared on the article once again, meaning that this future was erased .
between 2018 and 2024, Iris gave give birth to her and Barry ‘s daughter, Nora West-Allen, named in honor of Barry ‘s mother.

Powers and abilities


  • Retrocognition: Due to Iris unique connection to the Speed Force and the Still Force, she can remember alternate timelines, such as Reverse-Flashpoint, something that even Deon Owens, the host of the Still Force, couldn’t recall.

erstwhile powers

  • Mirrorverse adaptation: After being trapped in the Mirrorverse for so long, Iris’ body began to adapt to the mirror realm allowing her to control it and being able to read and use its technology. She uses this power to read the monitors to locate David Singh who also is trapped within the Mirrorverse. It was pointed out by Kamilla Hwang that Iris had the power to control the Mirroverse but this also comes with a price of maddening her as a weakness. However after leaving the mirrorverse Iris seemingly retained some of her new skills and apparently doesn’t suffer from neural dissonance anymore. When Eva returned to the mirrorverse, Iris lost all her powers.[66]
    • Vitrikinesis: Iris was able to manipulate mirrors after she was trapped in the mirrorverse for a while. She was able to fend off Eva’s shards thrown at her.[56]
  • Speed Force connection: Despite not apparently having a meta-gene, Iris seems to possess a unique connection to the Speed Force that allows her to connect with speedsters, namely her husband. This ability first showed itself when Iris felt a jolt of electricity when she touched Barry while he was in a coma. Iris seems to be able to generate and store Speed Force’s energy in her body unconsciously. She was able to provide enough energy to jumpstart the Speed Force itself after it “died” due to corruption from the Spectre. Between her connection to Barry and the brief time she inherited his powers through Matthew Kim, the Speed Force was able to grant her full access to speedster powers to battle against the Godspeeds. Despite having them for only a short period, Iris quickly adjusted the usage of them, effectively working as a superhero, in certain capacities showing even more ingenuity than Barry. After the battle, Iris’ connection with the Speed Force seemed to end, losing her speedster powers.
    • Accelerated healing factor: Iris’ transferred powers let her heal in a fraction of the time a normal person would. After breaking her leg and suffering severe smoke inhalations, she made a full recovery hours later.
    • Electrokinesis: Iris’ Speed Force energy uniquely generates purple electricity.
    • Superhuman agility: Iris was able to maneuver through enclosed areas with great coordination and dexterity. This enabled her to repeatedly traverse a tall building’s staircase to save 14 people from a fire, one after another.
    • Superhuman speed: Iris was able to move at such vast speeds that even Barry was amazed at how fast she could move despite being new to her powers. With her speed, she can easily traverse Central City or change outfits in an instant. Her speed also enabled her to run on an ocean.
      • Aerokinesis: Iris was able to use her speed to generate air flows on various levels. While she struggled to use this ability to properly smother a fire, she proved able to use this build-up to gather and direct enough water into a tidal wave capable to disperse a giant fire cyclone of over 6000° Fahrenheit.
    • Superhuman stamina: Iris was able to run tremendous distances with no signs of fatigue.


It’s my job to find out the truth. I’m a reporter.
—Iris West to Nora West-Allen[src]
  • High-level intellect/Expert investigator/Skilled tactician/Leader: Iris is very intelligent individual and an excellent investigator; as she follows every lead and rumor to discover the truth behind any story; she eventually discovered that the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator explosion was what gave the Flash his powers. Iris’ background as a psychology student has sharpened her natural wits and intuition, which she presumably inherited from her police officer father and grandfather, and gave her a methodical approach to studying and investigating the several meta-human cases around the city, starting off with the Flash. Iris’ detective skills made her a prime candidate for the police academy, which she only backed out; due to Joe West’s disapproval. On her own, Iris figured out that Barry Allen was the Flash upon remembering how Barry gave off similar electrical shocks as the speedster while comatose. Iris is a capable tactician and leader; after Barry reluctantly went into the Speed Force, she took over the leadership role of Team Flash, though nearly 1 in 3 of the criminal meta-humans they have gotten into a confrontation with have managed to escape. She has a creative intelligence, which was evident when she got the idea of using the Quark Sphere from the Speed Force to stop a nuclear bomb or using A.M.A.Z.O.’s weaknesses against it.
You need to go after her.
Oh, come on. Give me a break. Have you seen her right hook?
—Cecile Horton and Ralph Dibny[src]


former weaknesses

  • Neural dissonance: Iris’ prolonged stay in the Mirrorverse gradually degenerated her mind; the more she adapts there, the more she loses her sanity. Iris even developed Eva McCulloch’s tic of scratching her arm.[66] However, she recovered from this after being released from the Mirrorverse.
  • Time sickness: Iris had a time sickness that caused her to lose consciousness and move forward in time. Deon Owens was containing it, although he undid the treatment so they could investigate about the Negative Still Force. As the sickness has worsened, her time episodes can send people or objects into the Still Force, via a green energy that seems to be Still Force energy or an energy similar to Timeless Wells’s. The Negative Still Force was revealed to be infecting Iris to get a sacrifice to restore Eobard Thawne’s powers so that he can be the avatar of the Negative Speed Force. It was cured after Iris left the time stone.


  • Guns: Iris is very proficient in using guns.

former equipment

  • The Flash suit: After Melting Point transferred Barry Allen’s speedster powers to Iris, she briefly took on the mantle of The Flash. Cisco Ramon modified a purple jacket Iris wore for day-to-day use to be friction proof, which she wore along with an extra mask of Jesse Quick’s while operating in the field. After the speedster powers were returned to Barry, Iris stopped wearing the suit.[3] In an erased future,[51] Nora West-Allen reused this suit when she began operating as the speedster heroine XS.[47]
