Rudy West was a male Human from Blue Valley, Nebraska during the 20th century.

He was a con artist and a sleeper agent of the Manhunters.

He was the husband of Mary West and the father of Wally West.



As a child, Rudy West was a no-good bully interested in nothing but football and little else.

When he grew up, Rudy West became a member of the Manhunters, who instructed him to move to Blue Valley, Nebraska and marry Emmaline Brady, who would become pregnant with a baby that would grow up to be quite powerful.

That baby was Wally West, aka Kid-Flash, and later Flash. He had many problems with his family, as he demanded them to love him because he never felt love in his own family. This was likely the reason he was such a bully.

He did eventually tell his son that he was a Manhunter, and that his mother died in a boating accident in the Caribbean. He hired the Blue Trinity to kidnap Wally and take him to the Manhunters' Siberian base, but Wally was rescued by Red Trinity. During the fight, Rudy escaped.

Not too long later, Wally learned that his mother was in fact still alive, as she was recovering from her injuries in a hospital in Miami. However, his mother told him over the telephone that she was certain his father had died.[1]
