In just a few weeks, The Flash is set to give fans a one of a kind episode, in which Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton) will temporarily suit up as a speedster.
The episode, titled "Run, Iris, Run", will see the show's female lead briefly getting Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin) superpowers, after a metahuman swaps their DNA. And judging by the photo released earlier today, it looks like Iris will be doing so in a purple and white super suit.
After set spies snapped photos of Patton in costume for the episode, The CW confirmed that Iris would wear a superhero costume at some point this season. But now that fans have gotten their first official look at Iris in the costume, excitement for the episode has grown.
Here's a round-up of some of those reactions to Iris West's superhero costume.

Look, I'm not saying I have a Teri Hatcher reference for *every* occasion, but Iris temporarily getting speed powers on #TheFlash is giving me serious Ultra Woman flashbacks. pic.twitter.com/cRA7zYlQIE— Andy Swift (@AndySwift) February 22, 2018
