DC Comics is set to introduce a non-binary version of the Flash in a major gender-swapped comic crossover event next month.
Jess Chambers, aka Kid Quick, will debut in DC’s Very Merry Multiverse, an anthology of seasonal sagas landing in stores on 6 December.
The speedster, whose aunt is the current-day Jesse Quick, will be introduced in an eight-page story focusing on the Teen Justice team from Earth-11, a world where the heroes are gender-flipped versions of the heroes of the traditional DC Earth.
They’ll then take on the official mantle of the Flash for the Future State: Justice League storyline coming to DC comic books in January and February.
“In DC Future State, the Multiverse has been saved from the brink of destruction, but the triumph of DC’s heroes has shaken loose the very fabric of time and space,” the publisher said in a release this year.
