Flash/Impulse: Runs in the Family



Impulse, the Flash's hyperactive descendant from the 30th century, has landed in the present and is ready to make a superhero name for himself--but he's going to have to learn to think before he runs, in this collection of high-energy adventures!

Few DC characters represent the fun and fast-paced energy of 1990s superhero comic books like Bart Allen--the teen speedster better known as Impulse--and his early solo adventures are back in print in this new collection!

Due to his hyper-accelerated metabolism, Bart Allen was aging fast--like, really fast--and was raised in a 30th-century virtual reality simulation so his brain could keep up with his body. So when he winds up in the present, he sees the world as one big video game--and he's got a lot to learn if he's going to embrace his new superhero status as Impulse. Luckily, Bart has a speedster mentor named Max Mercury, and if anyone's up to the task, it's the zen master of the Speed Force.

In this collection, Bart adjusts to life in the 20th century, keeping the town of Manchester, Alabama, safe from threats like White Lightning and Gridlock.

Flash/Impulse: Runs in the Family also includes "Dead Heat," a six-part crossover with The Flash--as Savitar's machinations in the Speed Force cause the Flash's allies, Impulse included, to lose their speed!

This volume collects Impulse #1-12 and The Flash #108-111.
