I was recently thinking how Iris, Joe, and Wally being Black means that this Arrowverse/Flarrowverse’s speedsters will be most Black/biracial.

 If you don’t already know Don and Dawn are the twin children of Barry and Iris. Bart (Impulse) is Don’s son. I chose the actor Cameron Boyce because he has one grandparent who is Black just like I imagine this world’s Bart to have and he also reminds me of Grant. Jenni Ognats (XS) is Dawn’s daughter and as you all can see was originally created as a biracial Black character.

Irey and Jai are the children of Wally West and Linda Park in the comic books. Since Linda is Barry’s ex in this universe I took it upon myself to imagine Wally meeting and falling in love with a speedster named Danica Williams who is The Flash in the Beyond Universe that was brought to us by Batman Beyond.

Finally we have Max Mercury, the time-traveling speedster from the 1830s who operate as a mentor to many of the future West-Allen kids. His origin is based in some racist, mystical Native tropes so I racebent him to fix it.

The Flash Family now has the potential to show off a variety of Black skin tones and I pray to god that they do it right.

Also Barry is now that cool ass White Grandpa in a Black Family and that makes me happy AF.

Two today in Super Casual! A slightly scarred Bart in a beetle sweater and a dancing Cass with space buns! @timdrxked or @timdrxkes asked for Cass and I promise to draw Hal soon! (Sorry for tagging you both. I have trouble with names at the best of times. ^^“)
