    Nora West-Allen (Earth-1: Pre-Crisis)




    For a long time, I fumbled with my powers. I doubted myself. But that's how we learn. And yeah, every time I fell, Dad picked me up. Just like every time you fall, I'm gonna pick you up too. Just remember what Dad always says: "No matter how fast you run, life is about the journey."
    — Nora West-Allen to Bart West-Allen[src]

    Nora West-Allen is the daughter of Barry Allen and Iris West-Allen, the older sister of Bart West-Allen and the vigilante known as XS.

    Biography[edit | hide | hide all]

    Early Life[edit | hide]

    In late October 2023, Nora West-Allen was born to Barry Allen and Iris West-Allen. Her parentage means that she inherited a natural connection to the Speed Force, which gives her various superhuman abilities, including the ability to run at superhuman speeds.[6]

    XS[edit | hide]

    In 2049, Nora found out she had powers that were inherited from her father, Barry Allen, also known as The Flash. Later, after the death of her best friend, Lia Nelson, she became a vigilante known as "XS", the nickname given to her by her mother.[4]

    She would become the mentee of Eobard Thawne, unaware of his full history with her family. Thawne convinced her to travel back in time to join Team Flash, in an attempt to stop her father from disappearing during the Crisis of 2024.[7]

    In 2019, West-Allen was erased out of existence after returning from being sent to the future by her father[8] and left her journal behind. According to Wally West, she was seen in the Speed Force running with his kids and their descendants.[9]

    In the current timeline, West-Allen's vigilante actions still exist and are shown in newspaper articles in 2021. However, she no longer has all the powers nor memories of her erased timeline self.[7] At some point, West-Allen met the Speed Force appearing as Nora Allen.[10] She referred to "her" as 'Big Nora' at times.

    Back in Time[edit | hide]

    XS and Impulse
    West-Allen family rule #1: Protect the timeline at any and all cost.
    — XS[src]

    While fighting Godspeed in the city, West-Allen held Godspeed with a lasso as Bart "phased" through his body, knocking him unconscious. West-Allen scolded Bart for his impulsive and irresponsible behavior until Godspeed woke up. They chased him across the city and found him at the Flash Museum. Godspeed opened a portal using the Cosmic Treadmill and went to 2021. Despite hesitating for several seconds, West-Allen ran into the portal anyway and travelled from 2049 to 2021 alongside his brother, Bart West-Allen, during the Godspeed War.[7] Once there, she met her father in the Speed Lab and reassured him that she is the proof that everything works out before introducing her brother to Barry.[6]

    The Adversary[edit | hide]

    The West-Allen siblings meet their mother

    In 2021, West-Allen and Bart were informed by their father that August Heart had no memory and kept in S.T.A.R. Labs. They then met Cecile Horton and Caitlin Snow, who they greeted. Chester P. Runk then expressed his admire on Bart's battle against Godspeed as West-Allen rolled her eyes. West-Allen and Bart then had lunch in the lounge and saw their father looking at them. As they talked to each other about the timeline changes, they were interrupted by an alarm about Godspeed fighting near City Hall.[7]

    The Flash family then ran to the site of conflict and Allen ordered both West-Allen and Bart to run in different directions. However, the clones did not follow West-Allen nor her father, but rather followed "The Adversary", Bart West-Allen. Luckily, the clones had to recharge in the Speed Force and Bart survived the battle.[7]

    After Bart ran away out of rage that Allen refused to let him fight, West-Allen found him in the living room and talked to him about their past. West-Allen reminded Bart that his impulsive actions might lead to his death, quoting Jay Garrick that Bart should "put down his hat". The two then returned to S.T.A.R. Labs and West-Allen left with Allen to fight Godspeeds with the SEE. West-Allen and Allen were defeated as the SEE was charged with kinetic energy from Allen's lightning, causing a boost in Godspeeds' powers and allowing them to defeat them easily. When Bart ran to rescue Garrick from the Godspeed clones, he was overwhelmed and captured. West-Allen and Allen then arrived and saw Bart being tortured by the lead Godspeed, and quickly rescued him from the pain. West-Allen, Allen and Garrick were surrounded until Cisco Ramon rescued the speedsters from danger.[7]

    All Hands on Deck[edit | hide]

    Flash Family

    Seeing her brother in a coma, West-Allen started becoming emotional and thought everything was falling apart. Caitlin Snow reassured her that everything was fine and West-Allen then met the Speed Force. "She" boosted West-Allen's speed, alongside Allen, Garrick and gave Iris temporary powers. The family of speedsters then joined forces, fighting against the Godspeed Army. West-Allen tripped multiple Godspeeds with her lightning lasso and defeated them. However, the Godspeeds soon took the upper hand and recharged by the Speed Force, who was in close proximity with them and had a strong connection with them. The family then retreated to S.T.A.R. Labs.[10]

    Hours later, West-Allen and the rest of the team witnessed the return of Reverse-Flash, who agreed to fight Godspeed in exchange for a physical body. A week after the defeat of Godspeed, West-Allen attended the vow renewal ceremony of her parents.[10]

    Believe in the Impossible[edit | hide]

    After her father Barry Allen and his team defeated the Legion of Zoom, two weeks have passed since baby Nora was born. Her parents celebrated at the Loft when her grandparents finally get married. After that, her father told her to stop crying and that she also needs to believe in the impossible just like how he believed in the impossible in his journey of 9 years as The Flash.
