"My name is Jesse Quick and I'm the fastest woman alive"

I had planned on posting these preview pictures of Jesse Quick in her sweet new costume from SpoilerTV before the "New Rogues" episode of The Flash premiered this week, but then I saw something shiny and I just got distracted. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I still wanted to post the pictures because, dang, that costume is nice. So backstory for context, last season Jesse Wells (Earth-2 Harrison Wells' daughter) and Wally West were struck by a particle wave from Team Flash's attempt to recreate the same wave that gave Barry and all of the Earth-1 metas their powers in order to restore Barry's after he lost them to Zoom. Still with me? So Jesse nor Wally showed signs of having gotten powers.But in the season 3 premiere, Wally had them as Kid Flash in the Flashpoint timeline Barry created when he traveled back in time to save his mother, but didn't have them in the new timeline Barry created when he went back and stopped himself from saving her.

Yeah, time travel is very confusing and I think the entire Flash fandom wants to smack Barry upside the head.

So anyways, while Wally doesn't appear to have his Speed Force powers in the new timeline, guess who does? Yup, Jesse Wells. She and Harry return to Earth-1 (this is a bit of weirdness because this is actually their first trip to this incarnation of Earth-1 because Earth-2 and the rest of the multiverse is unaffected by Barry's time travel shenanigans) so that Team Flash can run her through a battery of tests, which is actually just a lie on Harry's part because he wants them to talk his daughter out of wanting to be a speedster. As you can tell below, he relented and they stick around long enough for Barry to train her. Harry also gifts her a costume, courtesy of Cisco and without further adieu, let's check it out.

Not bad, not bad at all. The Arrowverse wardrobe department has a better handle on costumes than Warner Bros. does. No rubber suits or molded fake muscles here! Not a surprise, really. I mean, the Arrowverse has thinks on lock better than DC's cinematic universe, which comes off as a confused, jumbled mess.

What do you think about Jesse Quick's costume?
