5. When Iris Saved Central City from an Atom Bomb

During season four's “Enter Flashtime,” Barry Allen’s constant accelerated motion froze everyone in time. Why? Well, it was the only thing keeping Central City from being destroyed by an atomic bomb that had already been detonated. The moment he stopped moving, everyone and everything he loved was going to be blown to shreds. After his consultations with his speedster and scientist friends proved to be a failure, he brought Iris into flash time with him so that he could tell her he couldn’t save her, or the city. For all intents and purposes, Barry was about to give up. But not on Iris’ watch! Instead of letting Barry throw in the towel, Iris ended up coming up with a solution that ultimately helped Barry stop the bomb from going off. Who says you have to have five degrees in order to be smart?!

These are just a few examples of times that Iris West helped save the day on The Flash. If you love her as much as I do, comment below with your favorite act of her heroism -- there are almost too many to count -- and don’t forget to share this article with your friends!
