DC Comics is introducing a new iteration of the speedy superhero: Jess Chambers, otherwise known as "Kid Quick," is a nonbinary, gender-fluid character who uses they/them pronouns.

Kid Quick is the newest addition to a small but growing group of nonbinary superheroes in the DC Comics universe.

Kid Quick is being ushered in as a part of DC's "Future Slate" event taking place in January and February 2021.

During this time, new comic book characters and story lines will be introduced to expand its representation of characters by offering new twists on some of its iconic characters.

"The DC Universe has always been fertile ground for new and refreshing takes on our characters, and DC Future State definitely contributes to this legacy," said Marie Javins, DC Comics' executive editor, in a news release obtained by Comic Book.

Ivan Cohen, who created the character with Eleonara Carlini, told Screen Rant that Kid Quick will debut in the 80-page "DC's Very Merry Multiverse," which will be available on December 8.

Kid Quick will then join Earth-11's Teen Justice team as The Flash in "Future State: Justice League. " Other Earth-11 characters include a gender-swapped Robin and Aquagirl.
