Storyline

While in Metropolis with Clark, Jonathan Kent is saved from an uncontrolled truck by a very fast teenager, Bart Allen (who will later become the superhero, 'The Flash'), who also pickpockets his wallet. When they arrive back in Kent Farm, Bart is there waiting for Clark where he confides in Bart the Flash about his powers. Bart and Clark become fast friends while Clark tries to persuade Bart to give up his quick and easy life of crime before it gets him in real trouble. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor buys a worthy manuscript with inscriptions in kryptonian, and he shows the unique document to Clark. But when Bart the Flash finds out, he decides to steal it to sell to a powerful mobster willing to pay a huge sum for the artifact. Also, Lana discloses the secret of her tattoo to her boyfriend Jason. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A Fast Episode
17 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode features a super-powered teen named Bart Allen. Although he is not given a super hero name nor is his family mentioned specifically, he is closely tied to the comic book character of Impulse. For those of you who are not familiar with this character, he is the original Flash's grandson from the comics.

In the comics Barry Allen's grandchild's name is Bart. So Bart Allen, but in the comics Bart inherited his powers from his grandfather. So judging from his age and his powers, we can assume that this is Impulse.

Hopefully we'll see more of this character. In the comics this character in now 20 something and might become the new Flash.
