I hate it when Aquaman does monitor duty. He scratches the board up with that harpoon, and the seat smells of carp. - Wally West

Wally is just a slightly more athletic version of Barry with fewer skills. I always liked him, though. His JLU incarnation rocked and he's always gotten some good smart ass lines even back in the Wolfman Teen Titans days when he was more of the Alex P. Keaton of the group.
I just couldn't decide which of those quotes to use since they both made me chuckle when I was surfing the wikis so I had to use both. Any dude that can take those kind of shots at Aquaman and Batman deserves mad props.
Wally West was the nephew of Iris West, fiancée of Barry Allen, who was The Flash of Central City. He grew up in a small town called Blue Valley with emotionally distant parents,and dreamed of living in Central City, perhaps one day meeting his hero, The Flash. Wally was only close to one relative, his father's sister, Iris.
One summer, Iris offered to let Wally stay in Central City with her. He gladly took the chance to get out of his hometown and away from his parents, and looked forward to the excitement of the big city. Iris introduced him to Barry, whom he thought was dull and uninteresting until Barry offered to introduce Wally to the Flash. Barry used some simple super-speed tricks to pull off the double identity, and gave him the surprise of his life. In Barry's lab, the Flash told Wally about how he had gotten his powers - a stray bolt of lightning that hit a rack of chemicals, which in turn hit him.
Later, a bolt of lightning struck chemicals that spilled on Wally granted him super-speed powers similar to Barry's. Wally would later find out that the Speed Force used these accidents as a cover to grant super-speed powers to both him and Barry.
Barry revealed his dual identity to Wally and a new partnership was forged. Wally became Flash's sidekick, Kid Flash. Initially, he wore a costume mirroring Barry's. As a strategic decision during a battle, Flash altered Wally's costume to a primarily-yellow design. After the battle, he chose to keep the costume, and wore it through his whole career as Kid Flash.
The Story so Far:
Wally enjoyed many adventures with Barry and quickly established himself as a good hero. A few months after becoming Kid Flash, he met fellow heroes Robin and Aqualad and they joined together to stop the menace of Mr. Twister. Their second meeting was more eventful: the three of them, now joined by Wonder Girl, fought against their mentors, who had been possessed. At this second meeting, the four youngsters decided to become a team and the Teen Titans were born, with Robin becoming the leader of the team. The sidekicks would continue to operate with their mentors, as well as spending time with their peers in the Titans.
After a case involving Titans West, this incarnation of the team disbanded and Wally returned to Blue Valley to continue his college career. Some months later, Raven banded together a group of New Teen Titans to help her battle her demon-father, Trigon. Initially, Wally was disinterested in joining the team. Raven used her emotion-manipulating powers to make Wally fall in love with her and in turn, he joined this new group of Teen Titans. He was consistently protective of Raven, and came to blows with Robin when he challenged her true motives. After an encounter with the Justice League, Zatanna revealed Raven's manipulation of him. He was angry and heartbroken.
Even though the Titans eventually came to her aid and ultimately defeated Trigon, Wally had a hard time dealing with Raven's deception. Complicating matters, even without her influence, Wally realized he really was in love with Raven. He grew increasingly unsure of his decision to continue as a member of the Titans. His discomfort with Raven led him to leave the team and return to school in Blue Valley.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths brought him out of retirement, and the death of Barry Allen gave him a new sense of purpose. Despite the risk, he took the name and costume of The Flash, and was determined to live up to the example that Barry Allen had set for the world. That job, however, would not be easy.
Wally West was a less powerful new Flash than his predecessor at first. Instead of being able to reach the speed of light, he could run just faster than that of sound. Also, he had to eat vast quantities of food to maintain his metabolism. However, after a difficult encounter with a particularly vicious foe, the first Reverse-Flash (Eobard Thawne), he was able increase his speed forcing him to push past a psychological block he had placed on his powers. To prevent himself from truly "replacing" Barry, Wally had subconsciously limited his speed so that he could never become his mentor's equal, but Thawne's bragging that he would become the true Flash forced Wally past this block as he feared Thawne replacing Barry more than he feared himself doing so. After this encounter he was Barry Allen's equal in speed, and eventually became even faster. Though he still had not been able to recover Barry's vibrational/phasing abilities (he could vibrate through objects but they would explode instead) he gained several new powers that Barry never had. He was able to share/steal speed, use his speed to kinetically upgrade his attacks, and super heal others.
Wally learned hat his and Barry’s powers came from the Speed Force, an energy source that grants several speedsters their powers. Wally had several adventures as The Flash and as a member of the Justice League. He continued to battle The Rogues and fell in love with, and married his longtime girlfriend Linda Park.
During the Final Crisis, Wally was reunited with Barry Allen, who had returned to life. At first he was hesitant to continue as The Flash with Barry’s return, but Barry and Kyle Rayner talked him into continuing, basically reminding him of all he had done and that the world could never have enough heroes.
Wally is a good natured man with a light-hearted demeanor and well-developed sense of humor. He is devoted to his own, and extended family and has a strong sense of responsibility.
Friends and Foes:
Wally is closest to his wife, Linda, and their two young children. He is also close to the Flash Family, especially Barry Allen and Bart, who he mentored for years. Like his predecessor, West is good friends with the Green Lantern of his time, Kyle Rayner. Wally also retained a close friendship with Kyle's predecessor, Hal Jordan, who often looked out for Wally. His best friend is Dick Grayson, who served with Wally on the Teen Titans as the first Robin and served as Wally's best man at his wedding.
The members of the New Teen Titans, the team Wally served on as Kid Flash, has reappeared several times throughout his life. Although they are not always in close contact with one another, the team considers each other family; Wally is no exception.
While they disagree regularly, Wally has developed an odd friendship/respect with Batman, who has more than once made it clear that those feelings are mutual.
