None of them are good leadership candidates in Barry's absence. With her understanding of psychology and her investigative skills, Iris is the only one who makes sense under the current circumstances.

What understanding of psychology? Her little pep talks? Please. Her psychological understanding is MAYBE 3 classes of undergrad. Maybe.

She has a psychology degree, which would take far more than 3 undergrad classes. I'm guessing that expertise in psychology is standard fare, if not a prerequisite, to professional investigative journalism.

What episode did she earn her psychology degree? Her schooling discussions lasted from 1x01-03 even though we weren't really shown anything. Then she made a tumblr blog that got popular and they gave her a writing position at Picture News based off her writing about "The Streak." She has no degree, she was only a barista.

She's a post grad student, which means that she would already have some sort of B.A. She might also have a degree in journalism, since it stands to reason that a newspaper like Central City Picture News would require at least a bachelor's degree to qualify for an interview. The show may or may not iron out the details of this since focusing on these finer points can quickly become boring. This is probably why there has been no mention of Cisco's education between high school and his employment at S.T.A.R. Labs, but logic dictates that he would have had at least a college education. Still, we can surmise from those character points that both Cisco and Iris have a high level of intelligence.

For confirmation, look no further than the Arrowverse Wiki:

"Iris is very intelligent and an excellent investigator, as she follows every lead and rumor to discover the truth behind any story; as she eventually discovered that the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator explosion was what gave the Flash his powers in the first place. Iris's background as a psychology student has sharpened her natural wits and intuition which she presumably inherited from her police officer father and grandfather, and gave her a methodical approach to studying and investigating the various meta-human cases around the city, starting off with the Flash. Iris's skills made her a prime candidate for the police academy, which she only backed out of due to Joe's disapproval and passive-aggressive form of emotional blackmail. Iris is also capable tactician and leader; "

http://arrow.wikia.com/wiki/Iris_West


While the character might not be a favorite of yours, it's undeniable that she was slowly built from season 1 to be particularly important to Team Flash. Her leadership arc isn't out of nowhere.

Still waiting on that. Why make a funko for something that'll last for a single episode? Killer Frost is more iconic.

Cyborg dressed as Green Lantern for a Halloween episode of Teen Titans Go and that got made into a Funko.

Looking forward to Iris as a Speedster next week, Candice has been great this season with more to do.

I haven't had time to keep up with the show as much as I normally would so can someone explain to me exactly how Iris is going to end up becoming a speedster?

Iris is not a fan favorite to get special treatment.

Again with the false equivalence? Why didn't you use Felicity as your example instead...

Speaking of, Felicity had a one-off in Atom's outfit and didn't get a funko for it. But she did get A funko so it's consistent for Iris to get one as herself in her usual look-at-me outfits.

People often mix there consuming hatred of a character and obsession with another character as being representative of the larger fanbase. The people that run these shows do so to make money, if Iris was this hated figure some feel she is, they'd dial her back.

Try again. Listen to the enormous audience applause Danielle and especially Carlos got at last year's San Diego Comic Con.

Yeah, and John Cena gets boo'd in nearly all of the arenas in the US, but go check out who sells the most merch and puts up the best segment numbers for WWE, what a small, hardcore vocal minority think doesn't reflect the much larger general audience that watch these shows and don't have fanatical issues with certain characters.
