Joan attended her husband's birthday party at the home of Rudy and Mary West. When Mary said her son wasn't as fast as Barry Allen (the current Flash) at clearing the table, Joan said that Jay wasn't either. Before he could object, she said she knew that he was a retired speedster, and since it was his birthday she wasn't going to argue with him about it.[4]
