Flash Facts: Early Days of Jesse Quick
...her first appearance in Justice Society of America #1 (August, 1992, by Len Strazewski and Mike Parobeck, as were all the issues of this 10 issue run), just had her as a mystery blonde in a diner, showing a little super-speed and an interest in the Justice Society.
Neither Jesse nor Kiki joined the JSA during this period, but they both stuck around....
...and Jesse finally found her identity (well, more or less).
With Justice Society of America #8 (March, 1993), Jesse was speeding around in costume and helping the JSA (and her dad, Johnny Quick) and the two of them helped out the original Hourman (who was also worrying about his ailing son, and his dependance on Miraclo).
Jesse's first costume was one of her best!
Vibe) and new heroes Templar and Echo. This Conglomerate didn't last long after their battle with Amazo (and soon after, Nuklon's battle with Shrapnel in Green Arrow #81 of December, 1993).
Jesse was under consideration for being the Flash while Flash was facing off against Kobra and more!
Flash (Wally West) and Impulse (Bart Allen) for a little while after that, with a major part in the Dead Heat storyline that went from Flash #108 and Impulse #9 (December, 1995) to Impulse #11 (February, 1996) and Flash #111 (March, 1996).
....all the while, Jesse kept quick with a hardworking attitude, which made her such a favorite, in no matter what identity she had, she kept running!
