First look at Iris Allen as The Flash

Hold on. What? Yep. All that talk about Iris saying We Are The Flash will come to fruition March 13 on The Flash episode titled appropriately enough Run Iris Run.

She’s is suiting up and here’s the first look at her costume.

Here’s the synopsis for the episode:

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.

This costume kind of reminds me of Legion of Super Heroes member XS’s costume. And there’s been more than a little speculation that the random waitress and Good Samaritan is in fact the granddaughter of Barry and Iris from the future.

What do you think of the new look? It’s probably going to just be for one episode, but this season has already done some unpredictable things. Why not give Mrs. Allen a spin at being a superhero herself?
