Elseworlds [Kid Flash of the Justice Riders] In the 19th century, in the American West, the small town of Paradise has been destroyed. Its sherriff, Diana Prince (often called the Woman Wonder), sets out to find out who destroyed it and how. Along the way she picks up allies: Kid Flash, the fastest gun in the West, Cheyenne Katar Johnson with his flying hawk suit, gambler and adventurer Booster Gold, inventor Beetle, and the manhunter John Jones. They learn that Paradise was destroyed by railroad baron Maxwell Lord to make room for his railway to California.

Kid Flash keeps his name secret. It seems there was some trouble up in Abilene, where Wallace West killed Federal Marshall Barry Allen. The details are never revealed, but West claims it was “more mercy than a murder.”

The Justice Riders only rode together once: to defeat Maxwell Lord and his army of clockwork men in the town of Helldorado. Any further adventures exist only in legend.
