When Wally West was a child, he would turn his radio to what he called “Frequency X” and daydream about “Radioland”—a world populated by energy beings. Years later, he discovered that he hadn’t been daydreaming. His “imaginary friend,” Krakkl, Defender of the Frequencies of Kwyzz, really existed—and the two of them were forced to race each other through a four-dimensional course across space and time for the fate of their respective worlds. Ultimately, Krakkl sacrificed himself to add his own speed to Wally’s, giving him enough of an edge to outrace instantaneous travel and save both their worlds.
