"Don't you remember that big, happy family the Rogues once were? I'm going
to put I back together again. And I'm going to lead you all to glory. I'm the
only one who properly can." —The Top
SUMMARY: The Rogue War rages on as the scarlet speedster's
greatest villains fight each other in downtown Central City. Now,
however, the stakes have been raised. The Top has arrived on the scene
and he's determined to deliver on his fiendish promise to the Flash.
Years ago, the Top used his mind-bending powers to alter the
personalities of a select few Rogues. The Trickster, the Pied Piper, and
Heat Wave thereafter convinced themselves to become heroes and reformed.
Now, in the midst of a battle pitting the ruthless Rogues against the
reformed Rogues, the Top has reversed his fiendish spell and reverted
these men to their former selves. What's more, he's twisted the minds of
some of Keystone's newest supervillains — including Girder, Murmur,
Double Down, Tar Pit, and Plunder — and convinced them to join him in a
bid for conquest. What the Top didn't count on was resistance from his
former allies, the original Rogues Gallery, and the unexpected
interference of the Reverse Flash!
