Ever wonder what would happen if Iris West Allen (Candice Patton) ever had meta powers? Well, we’re about to find out. The CW released the first photo of Iris in a speedster suit on the upcoming The Flash episode, “Run Iris Run”

In this episode, Team Flash continue their search for the twelve new meta humans. They encounter a meta human dubbed Melting Pot (Leonardo Nam) who has the ability to transfer DNA. And yep! You guessed it. Melting Pot swaps Iris and Barry’s (Grant Gustin) DNA, giving Iris super speed.

Iris is one of three team members that have not had meta powers on The Flash. Recently, Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet) acquired the ability to read minds. Her powers came from the particle accelerator explosion and only activated after Cecile became pregnant. Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) and Harry Wells (Tom Cavanagh) are the other two regular humans on the team.

Iris has always had a strong presence on Team Flash. She always seems to be in danger and in need of Barry’s assistance. It’s high time that Iris is able to save Barry for once. It will be interesting to watch Barry sit on the sidelines with everyone else. “Run Iris Run” will air on March 13.  

The Flash returns to the CW on Tuesday February 27!
