Anthony Gambi, an orphan and raised by his uncle Paul
in Central Cit y
, befriended several members of the Flash
's Rogues Gallery
when the villains came to the Gambi tailor shop for costumes and supplies. The rogues took young Anthony as a sort of ward, teaching him various tricks, and becoming his surrogate family.
After Captain Boomerang
was nearly killed during a battle with a new Flash
( Walter West
), the Australian villain gathered the rogues together in order to create a new super villain capable of stopping this ruthless incarnation of the fastest man alive. Volunteering for the job, Anthony was quickly transformed with various technologies into the Replicant, a villain who could manifest any of the rogues' super powers. Replicant quickly became the most dangerous foe of the new Flash, who was in fact a version of Wally West
from an alternate timeline.
