For more information see: The Dastardly Death Of The Rogues
The Top is one of the Renegades dispatched to apprehend the Flash after he is framed for the murder of the Renegade Mirror Monarch. Like the others, when the Weather Warlock's Cosmic Disc is damaged, he is sent back to the 25th Century.
Upon his return visit, Top expresses a dislike for the 25th Century brand of justice, and tells fellow Renegade Heatstroke about his dislike. Before he can act upon his feelings, Captain Boomerang and the Rogues show up and begin to fight. Top takes the time to confront the Flash and explain to him that the Renegades are there because the Rogues are going to break one of Sam Scudder's mirror weapons, unleashing the Mirror Lords, who will in turn possess the Flash's wife Iris Allen. Torn between his wife and the world's safety, the Flash lashes out against Mirror Master, only to accidentally murder the Mirror Monarch.
During the fight, Captain Boomerang breaks the Mirror and the Flash is sucked in, the Top takes the time to confront Iris West. As it turns out, the story about the Mirror Lords had been completely fabricated. Iris was proving that a man who had been imprisoned was falsely imprisoned. Her research would eventually lead to the real culprit, who was an ancestor of Top, named Rory Tork. After he escapes from the Mirror, the Renegades take him into the future to face trial. There, the Renegades acknowledge that their knowledge of the past is flawed.
Flash is able to escape to the present, where he confronts and defeats Top. Top is taken to the 25th Century to face trial for his crimes, including the murder of the Mirror Monarch.
Powers and Abilities
