QUOTE: "Us? Us. There is no us. There is only Grodd." —Gorilla Grodd

SUMMARY: At Iron Heights Penitentiary, a moral argument between police profiler Hunter Zolomon and Warden Gregory Wolfe is interrupted by a sudden and unexpected power outage. A team of gorilla paratroopers has descended upon the prison! The Flash arrives at Iron Heights to find that these mind-controlled invaders have released all of the Rogues from their respective cells. A prison riot is brewing as Murmur, the Top, Plunder, Girder, Abra Kadabra, Tar Pitt, Double Down, Cicada, and Blacksmith prepare to join the chaos. But these super-criminals clearly aren't the focus of this jailbreak. A bloodied and beaten scarlet speedster, having fractured his hand during the ensuing struggle, isn't swift enough to stop the apes before they achieve their goal. The deadly Gorilla Grodd has been released from his holding cell!
