‘The Flash’: First Look at Iris West’s Superhero Costume

The CW has released a first look at Candice Patton in her superhero costume, to be worn on The Flash.

The promotional photo features a costume Iris West will wear during the episode “Run, Iris, Run,” in which Iris gets Barry Allen’s powers and suits up for the first time.

The costume, which you can see here, features a purple-and-white color scheme reminiscent of the costumes worn by the Tornado Twins, Barry and Iris’s children who fight crime in the future.

A mysterious young woman who has appeared in a few episodes of The Flash season 4 is suspected by most fans to be Dawn Allen, one of the two Tornado Twins.

Other likely comparisons to Iris’s costume will be the costume Marvel’s Mockingbird wore immediately following the events of Secret Invasion, and Wonder Woman’s infamous purple-and-white “New Wonder Woman” outfit from the ’60s.

It seems a safe bet The Flash was going for the Tornado Twins reference.
