Keystone is under the protection of a man who can throw haymakers like machine-gun fire... who can create cyclones with a wave of his arm... who can outrun gravity. Keystone is my city.

Tanked the concept of death from the Speed Force. Ran to the end of time, where even death ceases to exist on the conceptual level. Survived in the epicenter of a black hole. His speed was incapable of being stolen. Thinks on a different frequency. Broke out of ambient matter, which functions as a 4-D barrier in space and time. Unaffected by Black Flash’s time corruption. Can break out of and see through illusions. Easily blacked beams that would have stolen the life of everyone throughout a small portion of time and space), Limited Body Puppetry, Dimensional Travel

Attack Potency: Solar System level (With the Infinite Mass Punch)

Speed: Massively FTL+. Immeasurable by running through time.

Lifting Strength: Peak Human, higher with Speed Force

Striking Strength: Solar System Class (With Infinite Mass Punch)

Durability: At least Building level normally (He is consistently treated as far more vulnerable while standing still, but still tanked a hit from Grodd), and is also likely comparable to Barry Allen). Up to Solar System level while running (The Speed Force likely enhances his durability, as he is able to withstand the force from his own punches)

Stamina: Extremely High

Range: Standard melee range (Most of his powers are melee based, but he can use ranged Speed Force effects a few meters away.), up to Kilometers (several) with whirlwinds and such

Standard Equipment: None notable

Intelligence: Wally West has a college education, mastery of the Speed Force, has many years of experience fighting all kinds of enemies. He was said to have read the Internet - the whole thing.

Weaknesses: Various types of energy can affect him even while moving or functioning at superhuman speeds, as well as effectively diminish/cut off his connection to the Speed Force. Using the Speed Force excessively and recklessly can result in him being permanently trapped in it. He cannot alter the kinetic energy of objects that gain their speed from time manipulation. He also needs a massive amount of food to compensate for his greatly accelerated metabolism.

Feats:

  • Outran the Black Racer to the Heat Death of the Universe
  • Reset every radio on earth in one sextillionth of a second
  • With the help of everyone on earth he was able to reach transtime velocity, granting him a speed of at least over 23 tredecillion or 23,759,448,520,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times greater than the speed of light

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Infinite Mass Punch: By accelerating to near the speed of light, he uses the Speed Force to allow the effects of relativity to increase the mass of his body, thus allowing him to hit with an incredibly powerful punch (said to be as powerful as the mass of a white dwarf star)
  • Speed Force Dump: After touching his opponent, he can dump battle field removal them into the dimension of the Speed Force.
  • Speed Steal: By touching (or just getting near) an opponent, he can steal all of their kinetic momentum and add it to his own. In addition to slowing the target down, it also immobilizes them indefinitely, making them frozen like a statue.

This version of the Flash was recently reintroduced to Post-Flashpoint continuity, but so far does not appear to retain anywhere near the same power level, so please avoid scaling other current characters from Post-Crisis statistics.
