Runs in the Family

by Mark Waid and Humberto Ramos

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 20/08/2019

In 1990 Mark Waid's legendary writing career began when he scripted his first issue of The Flash. Waid soon introduced a new super speedster, Impulse, to the series. As a teen hero from the 30th century, Impulse was raised in an artificial reality environment that made him notoriously, well, impulsive, but also a heroic new sidekick to his uncle, the Flash. Before long, Impulse moved on to his own solo series, where he faced not only the drama of adolescence but also evildoers new and old.

During his epic battle with the deadly Savitar, the Flash learned that somewhere in Alabama lives a young super-speedster called Bart Allen, a.k.a. Impulse. Before long, Impulse had raced off into his own solo series, where he must balance high school with crimefighting. With the guidance of his mentor, Max Mercury, Bart faces evil in the form of White Lightning and her gang, as well as a riot at a local rock concert. These stories written by Mark Waid show a sensitivity to teen concerns including juvenile delinquency and abuse.

This title includes the stories from The Flash#108-111 that introduced Impulse plus Impulse #1-12.
