August Heart, also known as Godspeed, is the arch-nemesis of Impulse, an enemy of XS and The Flash.
God of Speed[edit source]
In 2049, Heart injected himself with Velocity Serums and granted himself speedster abilities. He then used the alter ego "Godspeed" and fought Impulse and Nora West-Allen, later known as "XS". Heart later created a sanctum and proclaimed himself as the "God of Speed".
Sending Clones[edit source]
Months later, Heart started sending five Godspeed Clones throughout 2019 and 2020 in order to terrorize Central City as well as to steal The Flash's speed.
Godspeed War[edit source]

Later, Heart stayed in 2020 and witnessed a civil war between his clones. However, he lost his memories and had no idea who he was until Cecile Horton brought him to S.T.A.R. Labs and allowed Caitlin Snow to restore his memories.
