DC's latest reveal on their official publicity blog shows that Iris West will soon — as in, this month's The Flash #22 — be getting a super-suit of her own, devised by Barry Allen to protect her from the Speed Force killer, as seen in a couple of interior pages by series artist Francis Manapul.

DC calls it "a special protective suit for Iris that will prevent the killer from sensing the Speed Force energy in her," and though she doesn't have powers, it will "allow her to comfortably travel at superspeed."

The publisher naturally raises the question on whether or not this suit will be effective in concealing Iris from the Speed Force killer, but also asks how Barry's girlfriend Patty will feel about him spending more time with Iris (who, of course, he was married to in a different continuity). The Flash #22, by Brian Buccellato and Manapul, is scheduled for release on July 24.

DCIf you’ve been reading THE FLASH, you know that the current story arc features a mysterious “Speed Force killer.” Well, in order to keep his good friend safe from this elusive murderer, Barry must find a way to make Iris undetectable to whoever is committing these crimes. Using a method similar to how he constructed his own suit, Barry makes a special protective suit for Iris that will prevent the killer from sensing the Speed Force energy in her. And while Iris doesn’t have speed powers, this suit allows her to comfortably travel at super speed.

But will this suit really stop Iris from becoming the Speed Force killer’s next victim? Plus, how will Barry’s girlfriend Patty react to The Flash spending so much of his time attached to Iris’ hip? Only time will tell, but for the meantime, take a first look at some of Francis Manapul’s beautiful interior art from THE FLASH #22, featuring Iris in her new suit.
