Teaming up with Bart will be his sister Nora/XS (played by Jessica Parker Kennedy). Inspired by the original DC comic, Bart is the fastest teenager on the planet. His parents, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton) are faced with the responsibility of tempering Bart’s impatience and wild impulsiveness.
