The Flash Season 4 has finally given Iris West-Allen a superhero suit which is the totally unexpected thing to happen.
Earlier on the set, it was seen that Iris in her new speedster suit handling some bunch of criminals which looks like she gets some kind of new powers.
Take a brief look at New Poster of the Flash Season 4:
But why on earth showrunner gave Iris this kind of weird look. Does that mean Iris’s ‘We’re the Flash’ related to this thing?
Mrs. Allen will suit up as a speedster in episode 16 which will air on March 13. The episode is named after ‘Run, Iris Run’ which is similar to Barry Allen’s quote when he is about to surpass his speed limits.
The brief synopsis for the episode 16 is as follow:
“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.”
Again we are going to meet another bus meta who has an ability to transfer someone else power.
Hence, Iris will get her superhero moment for only one episode. Because it’s Barry’s own powers and he earns it by sacrificing his one family and friends.
This type of power swapping ability we have seen before when DeVoe steals other bus metas’ powers into himself. So Matthew also part of the Thinker’s major plan?
In summary, Iris West-Allen will step up as Central City’s new lady speedster who will take Flash’s mantle temporary to fight the villain. Team Flash must figure out how to revert things before DeVeo capture the next Bus Meta.
The Flash ‘Run, Iris, Run’ airs Tuesday, March 13 @8pm on The CW.
